Happy 2015! I know I slacked a bit on the blogging front over the holidays, but I tried to unplug as much as possible.
It is that time of year! People have a refreshed outlook on things, and are ready to set goals and tackle them this year. I’ve already seen lots of friends posting about their goals, and many involve getting healthier. I love it!
However, I read somewhere this week that only about 8% of people actually keep their resolutions and goals. This happens for a variety of reasons, but one that I have personally seen is that they expect quick results. They want the outcome without the process. They don’t see huge numbers drop on the scale, so they give up entirely.
Let’s talk about some other ways to measure healthy success.
Your clothes fit better.
One day soon those jeans will fit like they use to. Or you’ll be able to get into that dress from last summer. It WILL happen if you stick with it.
People say “wow, you look great!”
This one takes a while, and everyone is different but it will happen eventually! People will notice, and your positive outlook will be contagious. This will certainly keep you going.
You’ll sleep better.
Once you start treating your body right, it will reward you! By drinking lots of water, fueling with good food, and MOVING your body will need that sleep and will gladly make it happen. You’ll feel super refreshed in the morning.
You’ll feel like a rockstar.
I promise! Once you get on the healthy living train and meet your goal you will feel unstoppable. It is something NO ONE can take away from you.
