As many of us look forward to a New Year either because 2014 didn't bring you what you had hoped or you just look forward to a new beginning, you have to reflect on the past 12 months and see where you were and where you would like to be. While this holds true for any life goals, I'm more specifically directing this towards your healthy lifestyle goals.
Once the year starts to wind down around Thanksgiving many people feel that since their goals weren't reached by then, it is ok to give up and start fresh. If this approach works for you and you are happy with where you are, then you are in the small percentage of the population. You can see the fitness centers slowing down, the class sizes drop and then BOOM...January hits and everyone is motivated and ready to take on new challenges and start fresh! Things move along quite nicely and then it seems like the end of February and beginning of March, things start to slow down again??? So for my final blog of 2014, I ask you: As a trainer and nutritionist, what are some ideas and things that will help keep you motivated all through the year? If you are someone who throws in the towel mid-year, why is that? Do you need more variety with your workouts? More help with nutrition so you can really start making a change? I know sometimes it is hard to share your thoughts in public, so if you would rather, please visit my Karved Bodies Fitness page on Facebook and inbox me your responses. This will not only help me keep my clients motivated, but it will help you stay motivated and possibly see changes and reach goals this year like never before.
In closing, I just want to wish you all a Happy and Safe New Year and I hope that whatever your 2015 brings, it will be one that makes you happy!!!
