Well, we’re well into the year 2013, and New Year’s Resolutions are starting to fall into the dusty corners of our memories. That gym membership is still drafting from your account, even though you got the flu and missed 2 weeks of workouts. Or, maybe you pulled a muscle, and the ice pack has a stronger pull on your priorities than a workout. Here are some goals that you can achieve, regardless of your lifestyle and motivation level.

DIET

DietWATER

Not many people know that our bodies read “thirst” as “hunger”. So, the desire for snacks, or the need to nibble, could just mean you need a drink of water.

Dehydration also causes headaches. If you have trouble with headaches, you may just need water. With proper hydration, you are more likely to feel like fulfilling fitness goals.

FIBER

Fiber evens out the moisture in your digestive system. With proper amounts of fiber, moisture will be more evenly distributed throughout your bowels. Toxins will bind to the fiber so that your system can get rid of them more efficiently.

YOGA

YOGAYoga is an exercise regimen that you can adapt to your physical abilities. Not only does yoga stretch your body, it builds strength and improves muscle tone. In fact, many people start yoga in preparation for more strenuous exercise, because of the improvement in your strength and breathing. It’s also a great stress reducer – another element to keeping fit.

FAT CAMP

FAT CAMPThis may not appeal to everyone, but for those who are really serious about getting fit, boot camp is a great solution. You’ll have a personal trainer, serious dietary control, and the hardest workouts of your life – and the best, quickest results.

EXERCISE WHILE YOU WATCH TV

EXERCISE WHILE YOU WATCH TVThere is not one thing wrong with setting your glider or treadmill in from of the television. It’s a great way to distract yourself while you exercise. It’s also a great way to have a set time to exercise every day.

WORK OUT FOR 30 DAYS

WORK OUT FOR 30 DAYSThey say it takes 28 repetitions to create a habit. Give yourself a month to get used to any new activity, and to create healthier habits.

REWARD YOURSELF

REWARD-YOURSELFDon’t forget to get a massage or go to the spa. Those sore muscles will thank you, and you’ll be more likely to stay with it.

KEEP IT CONVENIENT

STAY CONSISTENT
