FORGET NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS AND GET REAL IN 2013:
A THREE-STEP FORMULA FOR FITNESS SUCCESS

New Year’s resolutions just don’t work for most people.  Studies show that between 60% and 90% of people (depending on age and health) fail to keep their resolutions.  Folks jumpin all at once with too many unrealistic goals.  Most people don‘t have a practical plan for how “getting fit” will fit into their lives.  They end up feeling bad and blaming themselves for failing.  That’s no way to start out a new year!

Time to Get Real about what it takes to succeed at getting fit:

1.  One change at a time, please!You can’t change your whole lifestyle all at once.  It doesn’t work no matter how revved up you feel on January 1.  If you want to get fit, you need to make a solid plan and follow through.  You can always add other goals once your commitment to fitness is strong.

2.  Be specific.  “I’m going to exercise more” isn’t going to get the results you want.  How often will you work out?  Where?  What time of day works best for your busy life?  An example of a specific goal: “I will attend Baltimore Boot Camp for Women two evenings a week for one month.”  You’ll be able to measure your success and feel good about reaching your goal.

3.  Start small.  Promising yourself to hit the gym five times a week or run five miles a day when you’re not a regular exerciser is too much too soon.  It sets you up for feeling disappointed with yourself.  Start out with a realistic goal that you know you can achieve.  You’ll feel proud and successful.  Then step it up by adding another small, specific step, like one more day of Boot Camp per week.
