Resolutions to Reach Your Goal

  • Have more workout days than rest days.

  • Start with obtainable goals: Start with 10 minutes of exercise per session if you haven't done anything prior. Increase every session by two minutes until you’re averaging at least 45 minutes of exercise.

  • Use the FITT method: Increase Frequency, Intensity, Type and Time of exercises.

  • Work closely with your personal trainer to asses and prescribe your exercise regimen.

  • Keep a workout outfit in your car.

  • Stand every 30 minutes to stretch or walk.

  • Wake up and go to sleep doing breathing exercises.

  • Every morning look in the mirror to be thankful you’re still alive and reward yourself by doing something healthy.

  • Eat 1-2 more pieces of a fruit or vegetable daily.

  • Decrease alcohol consumption by half a glass from your normal consumption.

  • Keep fruit and vegetables at your desk and in your car so you’re less tempted to snack on unhealthy options throughout the day.

  • Don't skip breakfast.

  • Bring your lunch to work at least three days a week.
