If you missed the first part of this article, you will find it here: 5 most common reasons why New Year’s resolutions fail and 5 tips for making them work. Part 1.
In our previous post, we acknowledged that sticking to New Year’s resolutions isn’t easy, because if it was quick-and-easy then everybody would do it! Instead of focusing on the challenges of making changes in your life, focus on what you have achieved so far.
Look where you are now, look around and notice all the wonderful things you are grateful for. You’ve made it, you’ve earned it. You can achieve anything you want. And if you need a bit of assistance along the way, then a dietitian in Hudson is here to help!
The most common reasons the New Year’s resolutions fail – continuation
You don’t track your progress. How often do you write down the type of exercise and the exact number of steps in your workout? What about the weights you used and the overall time of the workout? And what about the daily meals and caloric intake? Are you tracking those? If you kept a written record of your training progress, it would help you appreciate the great work you have done so far and would sustain the “I can do this” attitude. Exercise with one goal in mind: Do better next time. Beat your own records, not someone else’s.
You don’t reward yourself. First of all, you may need to change the perception of what a reward is. A reward is something that is good for you. Sweets are not rewards because they do not do us any good! Discuss with your dietitian what nutritious and healthy treats/rewards you can incorporate in your meal plan. Maybe an organic veggie juice or a packet of superfood fruits? It doesn’t have to be food. How about treating yourself with a healthy dietary supplement or glutathione injections which can further enhance your weight loss efforts?
5 tips for making NY’s resolutions work
This blogger has a SMART advice, which will help you develop a plan and succeed at achieving your New Year’s resolutions. All you have to do is to write down your goals and make sure they are:
1: Specific. What is the goal exactly? Be precise. If you want to lose weight but gain muscle mass, write down specific numbers.
2: Measurable. How will you know when you’ve accomplished the goal? What does success look like? Define it using your own words.
3: Attainable. What resources do you need to achieve the goal? Is it a gym membership? Or maybe a professional weight loss plan tailored to your needs? Consult your weight-loss objectives with our Hudson dietitian to ensure your goals are attainable and healthy!
4: Relevant. Answer yourself why you are doing this. What is the purpose? (perhaps, if your goal is weight loss, the purpose is a longer and healthier life?)
5: Time-oriented. Give yourself a deadline and remember to track your progress. Even if you’re not quite there yet by the deadline, you will see you are close enough. Keep going!
If we can leave you with one thought after reading this blog post, it will be this: it only takes 20 days to form a habit, stick to your plans and you will succeed. It is worth it. It may be a challenge but you are capable of incredible things.
Our dietitian in Hudson will help you change your idea about weight loss and prepare a meal plan which is easy to stick to and to track your progress. It will not be stressful, because eating healthy, if done right, is not a chore but a pleasure!
