They say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different outcome.
Does that mean you’re crazy about setting New Year’s resolutions?
Are you crazy about wanting to be better and more fit in 2022?
Of course not!
By setting New Year’s resolutions, you acknowledge that you are capable of achieving more. But to be sure that this year will give better results, let’s work differently this year.
Reflect your last New Year’s fitness resolution
Last year’s reflection was not a practice of making self-flags. If you are beating yourself up for not achieving your fitness goals, stop! If change was easy, everyone would do it.
Focus on the positive. For each goal of the past year, determine which one went well. How long have you been obsessed with New Year’s fitness plans? What did you keep when you still had it? How did it feel to be on track? Remember positive things to motivate yourself and you must refrain from stopping.
Set this year’s resolution
After taking stock of what you achieved last year, remember, it’s never too late to adjust this year’s New Year’s resolutions. Because we’re not crazy, we’re going to work differently. To be successful this year, we’re going to have to create measurable, achievable fitness resolutions. Don’t read “New Year, New You”. A “new you” is not required. You are currently setting goals to make you healthier and happier.
Smart fitness resolution
Make sure your fitness goals are smart:
Specific: Each goal should be specific. “Run” will not work; Try, “jog for 15 minutes every morning.”
Measurable: To make a goal achievable, it must be measurable. Did you reach 25 pushups? Have you managed to run your miles in less than 15 minutes?
Achievable: Be realistic about your goals. Promising to lose পা 50 a week will do you no good and make you feel like a failure.
Relevant: Focus on what is important to you. Why don’t you do it? What makes this goal resonate with you? It will keep you excited and inspired in 2022.
Time bound: Your resolution needs a timeline, otherwise it’s easy to hold off until “when you get to it” or “tomorrow”.
An example of a smart resolution is: “I will run 10K in 90 minutes at the Boston Harvest Half Marathon on September 20 in 90 minutes.”
Have a fitness plan
You will need a plan to achieve your New Year’s fitness resolutions
Be realistic when planning. We’re not going for 200 abby crunch every day. Instead, aim to commit 30 minutes each day to a home workout, treadmill or elliptical session.
For example, a marathon might include running your treadmill for 30 minutes twice a week, using ellipses for 30 minutes twice a week, and finishing strong with a long 60-minute jug at the end of each week.
Imagine for a second you were transposed into the karmic driven world of Earl. Imagine for a second you were transposed into the karmic driven world of Earl.
- Your alarm goes off at 6:00 in the morning.
- Instead of hitting the snooze button, you get out of bed.
- Your workout clothes are worn, so they are easy to wear.
- You fill your water bottle and prepare your playlist.
- You get on the treadmill and press start.
- You persevere for 30 minutes and then feel fabulous!
There will be days when you will want to give up or give up. Plan for them. Think about all the excuses you have used, then come up with counter arguments. Focus on why you are making your resolution. Write these to remind and inspire yourself.
Work on your New Year’s fitness resolution
You’re ready to go for it!
Your friends at G&G Equipment will help you get started with the best fitness equipment for your home gym. G&G specialists will also work on any of your needs, although be sure to consult your medical provider before starting any new workout plan.
Focus on the way you are working towards your goal and feel proud of each step. Enjoy your workout! Make it fun!
Think about your progress and reward yourself
Progress is not a one-size-fits-all event. If you want your resolution to stick and become a new habit, you need to check in with yourself every day.
Don’t wait until the end of the year to reward yourself; Be part of the process of rewarding yourself. Honest reflection and small rewards are a great way to keep yourself motivated and on track to accomplish your fitness goals.
Consider using a sticker chart. Sticker charts are not just for kids work; They provide simple, visual confirmation of your greatness! How hard was it to get out of bed and start those pushups? But did you do it anyway? Give yourself three stars! Did you get your workout every week for a month? Fifteen stars! A sticker chart contains daily prizes in the form of a sticker. It’s small, but it looks good. (Trust me!)
Once you get enough stickers, reward yourself with something fun. Go see a movie or take a nice bath. Treat yourself to a spa day or massage. Get a new workout outfit or a pair of shoes.
Repeat, repeat, repeat!
Your New Year’s fitness plan is not something you start and end. It’s not something you can’t get back on if you fall or slip. This is a process.
Consistently plan, work and reflect. Be active and persevering, but be kind and gentle with yourself. If you are suffering from any illness or injury, take some time. You do not have to wait until December 31 to start again.
Opportunity to start again every day.
End today? Tomorrow will be easier.
Weekend? Next week will be easier.
The end of the month? It will be easier next month.
Focus on your New Year’s fitness resolution every day. Focus on how great you feel when you make commitments and achieve them. This year will be different. You’re not crazy about knowing you can be healthy and happy, and we’re here to help and encourage you!
