Get Fit 2016 | New Years Resolution Planning

TONS of people make some kinda New Years Resolution goal that has something to do with fitness, weight loss, nutrition or health. Everyone has the determination on January 1st that this is finally the year!!! Then they fall off the bandwagon on January 2nd.

Has this ever happened to you?

Don't worry you're not the only one out there that this has happened to.

So how do you make a New Years Resolution goal and achieve it!?!?!?!

Follow these steps and lets plan to have an amazing 2016 together!

1) Set a goal that is realistic and achievable
First off find a goal that you can achieve, set yourself up for success! For example if you've never run in your life then don't set a goal of trying to run a marathon in 2016...start with a 5km run. Make your goals realistic enough that you can achieve them

2) Set a goal that you can track
Having goals are great! But why set goals if you can't say "yes I've completed that". Find a goal that you can track. For example don't just say 2016 is the year I'm going to loose weight....instead say 2016 is the year I'm going to loose 20 pounds. Now you have a goal that you can track and strive to reach

3) Write your goals down
Make it permanent! That's right get out a pen and paper and write down those goals. This is a step that a lot of people don't do. When you write down your goals you are more likely to work towards achieving them. I also like to put that piece of paper in a place I will see it everyday. That might be your bathroom mirror, fridge, ANYWHERE! Remind yourself of the goals you set everyday

4) Make a plan
It's not enough to say I'm going to loose 5 pounds. Make a plan! How are you going to loose 5 pounds? I like to write my plans out in my agenda book because I look in there everyday...but everyone is different. Maybe you need a wall calendar set out with your daily eating plan. Weight loose doesn't just happen - YOU make it happen.

5) Tell everyone!
Telling a friend or family member will help you stay accountable to your goals. Tell someone what your goals are. I also like to post mine of social media - that way the whole world knows.

6) Follow through
Health, nutrition & fitness goals are something that you have to work at DAILY. For most people it doesn't come naturally so just know that you aren't alone. This can be a daily struggle but just chip away at your goal everyday and you will see the results.

7) Reward yourself
I LOVE this part. Okay so I'll give you an example that I've done - I started the 21 day fix program last year. It's a fitness & nutrition program created by Beachbody that you follow for 21 days. My goal was to follow this program and FINISH IT! I told myself that if I completed this program in 21 days I could buy a new workout tank top. This gave me something to look forward to at the end of all my hard work. Make sure you acknowledge the hard work and effort you are putting in and treat yourself! Maybe it will be something small like a new workout tank top, shoes, spa day, new purse...maybe you want to go bigger and reward yourself with a vacation! Just make sure to reward your hard work.

I hope that you ALL have an amazing 2016! Set those goals and lets all work our butts off this year getting stronger and fitter than we were in 2015.
