Happy 2018 friends!!
I am excited to get back into my blog. 2017 was insanely hectic. I knew I wanted to start a blog as it was on my list of things to achieve, but unfortunately I didn’t spend enough time on it. So I am eager to jump back into it hoping you all still want to read.
So here I am !! I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays and that you were able to spend time with the people you love. I sure did J I was off from work for about a week and was able to get a lot of things accomplished. I took lots of Soul Cycle classes and spent the time doing things I love.
Getting back into a routine is difficult for everyone. Whether you had time off or not. We all are so busy running around doing things for the holidays and eating all the delicious food it makes it very easy to fall off track. You are not alone. I thought about what I wanted to share with you guys and I immediately thought about Goals for 2018 as well as tips on trying to get back into the swing of things.
When it comes to setting a goal or “resolution” for 2018 try not to make it about losing weight or gaining weight. It seems that when we set a goal like this, we tend to get frustrated when we don’t see immediate results. Instead, aim for following a healthy, sustainable lifestyle. At the end of the day, we all want to make sure we are making long term decisions to keep us healthy and happy.
Has anyone completely ditched the gym the past few months? or you haven’t pushed as hard as you know you can? THAT’S OK. Starting a new year helps us to take a step back and start over. So if you fell off track, or maybe you never were on track now is your time. Did you know 3 years ago on Jan 2nd was the kick start into my love for fitness. I decided to take my first Soul Cycle class. It was a new year, I figured why not try something NEW. Best thing I have ever done. I started to fall in love with moving my body, being able to push myself, and I started to see how strong I was becoming. 2 months later, I started working out in the gym to challenge myself a little more. Who knew that taking one cycling class would start a love for living a healthy active lifestyle. So my advice for you is to go for it! Get out there, try something new, meet new people and challenge yourself. The worst thing that can happen is you won’t like it. If you don’t- try something else until you find what you do.
Grab a partner. I am so fortunate that my husband is a huge advocate for health and fitness. It makes it easier to stick to my goals. I also met so many friends through the fitness community that keep me accountable and constantly motivate me. Surrounding yourself with people that have like interests is an awesome way to stay on track.
As we start the new year, remember that you are capable of whatever it is that you put your mind too. Set yourself up for success by making realistic goals and work hard to achieve them. We are all working towards something so let’s support and encourage each other.
Let’s make this the best year yet!
