Top 5 Tips for Your 2012 Weight Loss Goals!
written by: Denise
Many New Year’s Resolutions are given up soon after they’re started because committing to something (particularly something that you don’t necessarily enjoy) for an entire year can be pretty scary.
The main problem with these resolutions, however, is their plan of action. People can’t expect to make huge changes to their daily routines overnight and stick with them all year. In order to make a resolution successful, you need to have a game plan.
My New Year’s Resolution, like many people, is to get in shape and eat healthier this year. This isn’t the first time this has been my resolution, but it’s the LAST time I’m going to screw it up. Instead of dropping all my bad habits cold turkey, I’ve tried to come up with five ways I can slowly (but surely) change my bad habits into good ones. So, without further ado, here are my five tips to a new year and a new you:
5). Drink water like it’s your job
Water is one of the very few things you’re encouraged to have as much as you want of, and are often told to have more of than you do. Why? Because drinking water regularly is extremely beneficial to your health. In its most simple role, it’s keeping you away from other, not-so-healthy drinks like sugary juices, pop, coffee, etc., and in its more advanced function, it’s helping flush and detox your body of harmful and unwanted toxins.
4). Find some accountability
When the only person you have to worry about disappointing is yourself, you’re much more likely to fail than you are if you have a whole group of people rooting for your success. It doesn’t matter who it is; you just need to find someone who’s going to hold you accountable for what you say you’re going to do. From what you’re eating to what you’re doing, you need to have goals lined up and someone to help support you when you’re struggling to meet those goals. If you don’t feel comfortable asking a friend or family member to do this for you, there are plenty of forums and support groups that you can find on the Internet for people who are looking for the same thing you are!
3). Eat smaller meals more often
This is one of those weight-loss tips that seems to pop up everywhere, but that should probably tell you something: it works! You should always eat within an hour of waking up, and then you should eat every 2-3 hours after that. When you eat smaller meals more frequently, your metabolism is forced to work more frequently, and thus, burn more calories. Not only will your food be digested and processed more effectively, you’ll feel more energetic throughout the day.
2). Detox your body
While drinking plenty of water is certainly helpful to aide your body in flushing its toxins, it’s extremely important to detox your body in other ways in order to fully eliminate the waste and harmful toxins that build up over time. Even if you eat healthy and regularly exercise, you still need to detox frequently. Using an all-natural body wrap to detox your body is an easy and effective way to detox at home. It Works Body Wraps can be applied to almost any area of your body and can detox in less than an hour. Another great way to detox is using an all-natural colon cleanser; using a supplement that can help eradicate waste in your body is something you should always have on hand to keep detoxing on a regular basis.
1). Make small, but realizable goals
I think the biggest mistake people (myself include) make is getting too excited or ambitious from that start only to realize the goals you made were too big, too quick. Don’t promise yourself that you’re going to go to the gym everyday or that you’re not going to have anymore junk food; goals like these are setting yourself up to fail. Instead, commit to getting your heart rate up for 20 minutes a day, three times a week. Commit to replacing half of your beverage choices with water. When you make smaller goals, the rewards may not come as quickly, but they will come.
I’d love to hear what kind of goals you’re making and what you’re doing to get there! If you’re really serious about eating healthier and getting in shape, you can apply these tips to fit your lifestyle; I hope you keep your resolution like I’m keeping mine!
