New Year’s Resolutions the Right Way

SMARTDid you brave the scale yet after indulging in Christmas feasts? I stepped on the scale for the first time this morning and was pleasantly surprised to see that I only gained one pound in the last two weeks! I certainly enjoyed good food over vacation, but I also ran a LOT more than usual. Any other year, I might be upset that I gained one pound. But this year, I am certain that it is baby weight … and for that, I am thankful.

Today I am appearing on Living Dayton TV to talk about making New Year’s resolutions. A resolution is a committment to a goal. I like to put a positive spin on my resolutions instead of depriving myself of something. For example, one of my resolutions this year is to continue working out at least 5 times per week for the remainder of my pregnancy. I log my exercise electronically to add a level of accountability.

Resolutions should be specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-bound. If weight loss is one of your goals for 2013, a great example of a resolution would be to log your food on this year. That will ensure that you are getting the proper amount of nutrients to fuel your body. Another great resolution is to drink a glass of water 10 minutes before you eat another snack when you are hungry.

Several ladies I know are resolving to hire a trainer this year, and many have enrolled in my successful online personal training program. If you are looking for a 6-8 week program to help you jump start your fitness goals for 2013, request information today!
