Jump ahead to December 31st for a moment. You get to the end of the night, and you may find yourself making a New Year’s Resolution. You might share it with others as well or write it down. A common one that I hear is “I am going to lose 20 pounds.” This is a good start, and next year we will talk about how to accomplish this successfully.
Today, let’s start with how to take steps now to change that goal from 20 lbs to 10 or 5 or even 0! Much of this success relies on what you do and what you consume during the holidays.
Try the following steps TODAY!
Step 1: What is your goal that you will accomplish within the next 30 days? Try to make it specific, measurable, and achievable. For example, in the next 30 days I will improve my health and begin on my body composition improvement by drinking 8 glasses of water per day. Write it down where you can see it every day.
Step 2: On a scale of 1-10, how confident are you that you are 100% committed to achieving this goal in the face of all obstacles? If you are at a 9-10, we’re good to go! If you are at a 1-5, list out your obstacles and solutions to overcome them.
