We’ve all heard the saying the devil is in the details and it’s certainly true when it comes to resolutions. Our top tip when it comes to resolutions is don’t be vague. It’s easy to say, “I want to get healthier” or “I vow to get in shape this year.” For resolutions that stick, make a plan and be specific.
For Flexibility: I will be able to place my palms on the floor before the end of the year.
For Cardio/Endurance: I will be able to run a mile without stopping before the end of the year.
For Strength: I will be able to hold a plank for 1 minute or curl 15 pound hand weights before the end of the year.
Want to lose?
I would suggest NOT making one of the most popular resolutions out there: losing weight. Instead, focus on setting and attaining small, straight-forward goals and the weight loss will come on its own. An example? I will eat NO carbs after 3:00 p.m. this year.
