6 Steps for Sticking with Your New Year’s Resolutions

2017-new-you-logo

1 | Start Small

Set realistic goals and timelines. Create a goal of hitting the gym 3-4 times a week instead of every day or losing 10 pounds in two months instead of 60 pounds in one year.

2 | Focus on One Thing 

Unhealthy behaviors don’t develop overnight and neither do healthy ones. Don’t overwhelm yourself with a laundry list of goals. Focus on one thing at a time. Once you feel confident in sustainable change with one habit, tackle another.

3 | Seek Support

It’s easier to stick with your resolution if you’re not doing it alone. Encourage a family member, friend or co-worker to join the journey or sign-up for a program like Weigh and Win for support. Our Health Coaches are always available to help you.

4 | Be Easy on Yourself

Did you skip a couple workouts or over-indulge on unhealthy foods over the weekend? Don’t beat yourself up or let it derail you. Missteps will happen. Get back on track and keep working on your resolutions.

5 | Track and Evaluate 

Keep track of your progress and recognize any set-backs. Do you frequently skip going to the gym after work? Start working out in the morning instead.

6 | Celebrate your Successes

Did you hit 10,000 steps every day this month? Did you achieve your weight loss goal? Celebrate those successes in a way that won’t undo your hard work like a massage or new workout clothes!
