The majority of us likely have similar New Years resolutions…..get healthy, exercise, lose weight, eat healthy, spend less, etc. These are all great positive mindsets to have going into the new year! So, why do so many of us fail at them? When we make a New Years resolution to exercise why doesn’t it last? We all know gyms are crazy the first few weeks of the year and then it dies down. People get busy, life settles in, work picks up following the 1st of the year. There are so many things to derail us on our journeys. So this year instead of making a bland resolutions like: exercise more…..I am going to make resolutions that I can track easily. As well my husband and I and out family will share joint resolutions to keep each other accountable. Opening yourself up to friends, family, the world makes it so you are held accountable!
Our resolutions this year so far include:
1. Working out for at least 20 minutes 4-5x a week!
In order to keep ourselves accountable we are going to track our weeks. When you write something down it is easier to track your progress and keeps you accountable to your goals.
2. Plan out our meals for the week. Meal planning can help save money and ensures that you will make better, healthier choices. We will plan out on Saturdays what the meals will be for Monday – Sunday of the following week! Maybe it is time to make a weekly meal board like I see all over pinterest!!
3. Walking our dogs, even if it is just 10 minutes so they can get outside, get fresh air, exercise and so that we can also get outside and get fresh air too! We still need to do a better job of quantifying this resolution but we are getting there with setting our goals!!
We are well on our way to improving ourselves and setting quantitative attainable goals!! What about you? What are your goals for this year? Let us know, share with us!! We would live to hear from you and get feedback and suggestions on how you keep yourself accountable! Cheers to new starts!!!!!
