Everyone gets excited about ‘new and improved’ and ‘up and coming.’ But there is power in SAME.
Same does not have to be boring or predictable or stale.
When it comes to nutrition and exercise there is power in same. The key to changing your health is more of remaining the same.
*More of the same variety of fruits and vegetables
*More of the same variety of exercising
*More of the same water.
The problem with most people’s New Year resolutions is that they get bored and frustrated too quickly. They do not lose 10 pounds in the first 2 weeks so they quit. They do not keep up with doing the same thing.
Let’s make a ‘springtime Resolution” to stick with the same.
*Same time every day to exercise.
*Same healthy cookbooks, websites, blogs. Like 80/20 Healthy Habits.com
*Same assortment of fruits, veggies and healthy meals.
Ask yourself, “If I keep doing what I am currently doing, where will I be in one year?”
IF you are one of the 10% that have stuck with your resolve to get healthy this year then keep at it and add more of the same. More of the same varied exercises, more of the same healthy menus, more of the same variety of foods.
However, if you are one of the 90% that have fallen off the preverbal wagon, every day with the sunrise is a great day to get back up again.
Here are 3 simple ways to stick to your resolutions.
1. Tell as many people as you can about your goals. Give them permission to ask you about your progress.
2. Make an appointment to exercise. Do not say, “I will exercise 3 days a week.” Instead say, “I will exercise Monday, Wed and Thurs at 9:30.” Or whatever time. You get the idea.
3. Make yourself a priority. On airplanes are we not instructed to first put on our air mask and then assists those around us?
Take care of yourself so you can take care of others.
