Fit Friday: 3 Reasons to Get Fit Before 2016
How many of us have made a New Years Resolution about getting back into shape? If you’ve raised your hand then you are not alone! Why wait until the new year to work on getting healthier when you can do it now?
Here are three great reasons to get a head start before the ball drops.
First, when you “wait “ until the New Year to get into shape, you are subconsciously procrastinating. The mindset to change follow-up with immediate action. Write down your fitness goals! Are you trying to lose weight, lower your cholesterol level, or simply be in shape? Once you’ve written down your goals, follow through! For example, if you are trying to lose weight, then find your closest gym and sign up for a membership. If you are trying to lower your cholesterol, then visit your doctor and find out how! Follow up your goals with action.
Secondly, seeing is believing! Unfortunately, many of us have goals in our minds that we have failed to see through! Get realistic and create a vision board! For example, if you want your pre-baby body back, then post a picture of your “former self” or a photo of an inspirational figure! Hang the board on your bedroom wall so that you are able to see those images daily. This will help reinforce your initial drive and determination to fulfill your goals.
Lastly, find an accountability partner. There is nothing more encouraging than having support! Studies show that people are more likely to reach their goals with a support group. Share your New Year’s fitness resolution with some of your close friends and family. You may not be alone in your quest to get back into shape. If you and your accountability partner share the same goals, then you can be each others’ support system. Create a team workout schedule and stick with it!!
Get a head start on your goals so you can ring in the new year, already on course! Don’t wait to be great!
