How are you doing with your New Year Resolution?
Six of the top 15 resolutions are health-related which include to stop drinking, eat healthier, stop smoking, improve overall health, exercise more and lose weight.
“Experts” tell us that by January 14th many of our resolutions will be gone. *POOF* back to habits and lost in routines that are hard to change in the hectic lives we lead.
That is a tough statistic.
Here we are at January 14th.
I have set some health goals for 2015 and I can feel the pull of old habits and routines calling my name, so I reached out for some help (for all of us) I asked Andrew LoCurto who is training me out of Aspire Health and Performance for a little motivation to keep us all on track. Here is what he said:
“For all of those out there thinking about adjusting their timetable to eliminate or change their training routine. Stop!!! Things always get hard before they get easier, training is no different. At one point, this meant something to you, find that someone or emotion that had you fired up January 1st, rekindle that passion and keep the routine. The first two weeks is your body just getting used to the new you! 14/365 is not an acceptable score on an exam, it shouldn’t be for your health.”
Take a moment and let that sink in.
I will be repeating that in the back of my head more than once! Perhaps it will help keep you on track as well. 2015 can be the year we hit all our goals, let’s do this!
