Here we all are, staring at the end of the year.
How’d it go?
Can’t believe Costco is already playing Christmas music?
Ready to pig out for the holidays and then make the walk of shame back to the gym January 1st?
Sounds familiar. The New Year’s resolution to finally start that diet/fitness program/Rosetta Stone program when the new year begins.
Why do we even make resolutions?
We all absolutely LOVE making new year’s resolutions because in the moment of setting our future goals, we are happy.
We envision an amazingly bright future, where we are a radically different person than we are today.
… But guess what? You’re the same person now that you’ll be then.
If there’s a change you want to make, you can make it at anytime, regardless of the time of year.
If you don’t really want to do it, well, you won’t.
So when looking at the changes you DO want to make, why wait until the New Year?
Don’t postpone your goals because of how you intend to eat during the holidays. Because, guess what? We all eat way more than we should at Thanksgiving, and you’re no different!
Taking some time off and eating outside your usual nutrition guidelines during the holidays won’t ruin your progress, but the mindset of waiting until the New Year to make any headway toward those elusive goals will.
Maybe the issue for you isn’t so much the time of year, but simply a matter of prioritizing your own needs.
No matter what, taking even just an hour out of our day to take care of ourselves is important. More often than not, we are martyrs for work, school, or other people in our lives, and we ultimately ignore the most important people in our lives: ourselves.
If you don’t look and feel the way that you deserve, then how are you going to take care of those around you? Prioritize yourself for the people who are already your priority.
There is never a good time to start something new. Whatever you want to change, figure out how to change it and let us help you get started today.
Sometimes you gotta grab life by the haunches and hump it into submission
