Making New Years Resolutions a Reality

As 2018 is rapidly coming to an end and the New Year is approaching, the concept of a ‘new years resolution’ may be subtly (or not-so-subtly) nagging at the back of your mind. Why? Because New Year’s Resolutions are usually goals you make for yourself that you know will ‘be good for you’ but not particularly easy or enjoyable to achieve and maintain (if it were easy it wouldn’t really be worth making a resolution about right?).

One of the top New Year’s resolutions in North America deals with health and fitness; most of which fall into one or more of the following six categories:

  •     Weight loss
  •      Diet
  •      Exercise
  •      Physique/Body
  •      Health
  •      Fitness Level

Almost everyone struggles with or can improve in at least one of these areas (myself included)! It can be daunting to decide where to even begin picking a New Years resolution that is best for you – In fact, it is often easier to just scrap it or pick something so easy it won’t be much of an accomplishment to reach (this seems to be my approach in the past).

This year, as I reflected on what I wanted to improve or make better in my life, I thought, WHY go at this alone? With this incredible partnership with Valeo Fit and the beauty of social media, we have a platform to do it together, to have mutual support and build positive relationships. This is why I, alongside Valeo Fit and some of my favorite friends created the 30 Day FIT CHALLENGE starting Jan 2.

This is NOT a sales proposition, it is entirely FREE and it is truly to do something better together and create more positivity in life. All the information is here.

So here’s to making THIS the year we make positive change to our bodies, our minds, our relationships. We all have to start somewhere, and I’m a walking testament that simply starting with healthier eating and exercise has a massive positive and transformative effect on every aspect of your life.

But it’s not enough to say things like, I’m going to “get healthy”….”get fit”… “lose weight”, that’s way too vague! Studies show that lasting success comes from having specific, measurable, time bound goals and a plan to execute.

Hence the reason for the CHALLENGE. We did the work of planning it all for you, and we are here to be your friends and coaches along the way. All you have to do is:

  1. COMMIT (stop reading right now and MAKE THE COMMITMENT)
  2. then: SIGN UP here.
  3. SHARE it, grab a friend or family member,  sharing is caring, and having an accountability partner in your life will not only make your relationship stronger, it will make you more likely to stick with it, and enjoy the whole journey.

So I am formally inviting you to do the same! Make 2019 a new year, a better year and decide upon one thing you can change or improve in your life – and the hardest part: to share it here with me on this blog or on our Instagram. I would love to hear your goals (and hopefully it will inspire someone else), you never know who you touch.

But if you do decide to post, I warn you not to be surprised if I check in with you for a progress report.

    Ok well if I could do a get up with no handsthat would be cool. I would also like to stick to the meal plan and workouts and stil put in my morning run and yoga at night 5 -6 days a week. Stay consistent with weighing in every morning I would love to see the scale stay around 105 most days. I would be happy and feel pretty awesome,
