“Take Care of Your Body. It’s the Only Place You Have to Live in.”
The most popular fitness New Year Resolutions every year are-
- I will start going to the Gym!
- Time to start yoga!
- I will reduce weight!
However we all know what actually happens! These healthy New Year Resolutions go on for a week, fifteen days or probably a month and we are back to our old and lazy routines. However if you really wish to keep your fitness resolutions intact then here are some easy tips for you:-
Start with something easy
Do not over burden yourself with too many difficult resolutions. Start with a few easy ones to inculcate your interest in fitness and then slowly increase your difficulty level week after week. The harder your fitness New Year resolution is, the harder it is to get motivated for it.
Do not rely only on one thing
Always ensure that you have a couple of healthy habits going on simultaneously. Do not depend just on the exercises to reduce weight, take care of your diet as well. If you are going to the gym in the morning then in the evening you can go for a walk. This does not break your fitness regime completely even if you miss out one of the elements on a day.
Altering your diet
This is a difficult task but not very difficult if you are determined to keep your fitness New Year resolution. Analyse your diet and skip out the high calorie elements from it. In the beginning if you find it difficult to stay away from your favourite food then keep a cheat day, maybe a Sunday. On that day you can have one high calorie meal that you love only on the condition that you exercise more.
Hunger in between meals
Hunger often gets beyond your control if you have recently started working on your healthy New Year resolutions. In such situations, instead of attacking junk food, eat something healthy. If you are at your workplace, do not go to the canteen to have burgers or sandwiches. Instead, carry apples, fruit salads, peanuts or other dry fruits in your bag. Whenever you feel hungry at odd hours, you can have them without letting fats being accumulated on your body.
Have a partner to your fitness resolution
Instead of making these healthy New Year resolutions alone, make them with your friends or family members. This ensures that if one of you is not in a mood of continuing on the path of fitness, the other one is there to get the lazy one back on the right track. Also, this helps your exercise regime full of fun.
Admire yourself every morning
Stand in front of the mirror every morning. Look at yourself and think about the way you want to see yourself after a month or two. This one minute exercise fills you with instant positive energy and motivation to make you continue your healthy New Year resolutions.
