Ok, so you made it to the new year. You’ve made your New Year’s resolutions and you’re all set to get ready for a fresh new start. Here are a few things to keep in mind to help you stay committed to the promises you made to yourself.
When you’re all comfy and cozy in the bed and your alarms goes off, think of that annoying sound as a signal that it’s your time now. Your time to get healthy. Your time to build the body you’ve always wanted. And your time to get it right this time. It’s time to get up and start living to be the best YOU you can be!
When you’ve been sticking to your meal plan without having any extra snacks, avoiding those tempting foods you thought you couldn’t live without, and making sure you always have your meals with you, then it happens… You are faced with a box of delicious pastries at work or your kids want to make cookies with you. Don’t fret, walk away from that box of sugar breads. Have fun and bake those cookies with the kids, then walk away. It’s that simple..just walk away.
Sometimes we have the bad habit of wanting what someone else has. We want to have a butt like “her” or we wish we could have arms like “her” or if only we could be as disciplined with our workouts as “her.” The problem with that is, we are NOT “her” and will never be. We have to walk down our own path, not some else’s. Strive to improve yourself for yourself. Comparing yourself to others will only get you discouraged. Stick to your own plan.
Ladies, remember these things as you move forward to the new goals you’ve set for yourself. Take everything one day at a time.
