Like many people, you probably started 2014 with new year’s resolutions that you were excited about and looking forward to accomplishing. You probably started pumping yourself up since thanksgiving – eating all that holiday food with the promise that once the new year turns around, you will join a gym, get in shape, and shed not only the holiday weight gain but all the pounds you added the previous year while you allowed yourself to go. But then it’s february and you are wondering what happened to the fire you had in you when you set those new years resolutions. There are three reasons why most people don’t follow through with their fitness workout resolutions.
First, they wait till the new year to start, as if some special button is going to turn on once the new year begins. If you want to start the new year strong with your resolutions, start working on them in late october or early november – leaving yourself at least 21 days before thanksgiving to form a habit of doing what you are looking forward to doing in the new year. That way, when thanksgiving rolls around, your body is already used to working out and exercising, so even if you eat too much, you will still hit the gym to work it off. Same with christmas eating. Since you are already working out, chances are you will be able to workout out and burn those excess calories in no time. Also, if the gym is not your things, try a Home Fitness Workout Program.
Second, people set unrealistic goal, which causes them to give up when they go a few weeks without seeing any change. So, be realistic about your new years resolution goal so that you can see improvements quickly. Third, focus on diet. You can workout all you want, if you don’t change what and how you eat, you will not see the results you desire, which will cause you to lose hope and quit.
