Welcome to 2016! Have you made any resolutions for this year?
Do you want to lose weight? Exercise more?
Eat healthier? Determined to find your 6 pack – you know it is there somewhere!
Maybe you want to just take the 10,000 step challenge?
If you have made resolutions, STOP right now! Think about it!
Ask yourself these two questions:
1. Have I made resolutions before?
2. Have I kept my resolutions?
I believe the answer to #1 is Yes and the answer to #2 for most of us is A RESOUNDING NO!
So often we have great intentions of committing to resolutions only to fall by the wayside before the end of January.
We make unrealistic resolutions as we get caught up in the New Year Resolution frenzy.
Resolutions rarely work! Change takes time But making small changes over time, bit by bit, works and you have more chance of success.
One of the hardest things for me is to try to do it alone. What about you?
So, let’s not – Go it alone I mean.
In 2016 let’s work together, bit by bit, step by step, burpy by burpy, carrot stick by carrot stick lol… you get the picture!”
I’m passionate about my health and wellness and I find knowing that there are others making small changes at the same time, helps keep me motivated.
Having a workout buddy makes it so much easier and although we may not be workout buddies in person, we can be virtual workout buddies.
It doesn’t matter where we are, we can be halfway around the world, but we are here to push each other and help each other not be so alone.
I love running with my Saturday Sisters each Saturday. We keep each other on track and focused as well as enjoying our friendship.
For some of us though, it is easier to take small steps with someone we don’t know. If you’ve tried and tried to lose weight or get healthier, sometimes it’s really hard to involve those closest to you. Fear of failure can stop you from achieving your goal. If you fail then you have to see it in their eyes and on their faces every time you see them. Or perhaps they aren’t even supportive of what you want to achieve and don’t really want to know.
With a virtual workout buddy for support you have encouragement, not reminders of your failures. We are all working towards the same goal – being healthier –there is our common ground!
