The sad reality is that 92% of all fitness resolutions fail….
Want to be part of the 8% that succeed? Read on…
Let’s break down why you may fail at your resolutions in the first place and 5 steps to setting better resolutions…
Your resolutions fail because you’re setting the bar too high. Set smaller more manageable goals.
1. KNOW YOUR ‘WHY’
You may not be in touch with the REAL reason or your WHY you want to achieve something.
2. MAKE IT SMALL
Does this sound like you?
‘I’ll lose weight’
‘I’ll start exercising’
‘I’ll stop eating sugar’
‘I’ll quit drinking wine’
When you make either vague goals or take on too many goals, you’re bound to fail.
Instead, make a SMALL goal and then add to it when you see some success.
3. MAKE IT MEASURABLE
How will you know you’ve succeeded? Your goal must be measurable. Vague goals like ‘I’ll workout’ or ‘I’ll eat better’ are impossible to measure or know if you’ve really made any progress with.
Instead, set a goal that’s easy to be accountable for such as ‘I”ll exercise 3x a week’, or ‘I’ll eat a veggie at every meal’.
4. SET A DEADLINE
It takes 21 days to form a habit, so why not give yourself a deadline to achieve your small goal? You can adopt an ‘I can do anything for 21 days’ attitude. Once those 21 days pass and you’ve kept with that small goal, then you can add on another goal. In a year, you could make 17 resolutions to change when you do them in 21-day challenges.
5. GET SUPPORT AND ACCOUNTABILITY
Your success is much more probable when you have a support network. Surround yourself with positive people who will cheer you on and get a coach to hold your feet to the fire when you feel like stumbling.
If you have no one in your immediate surroundings, don’t discount the power of an online coach and community. I’m here to help!
