Every New Years Eve millions of people set out to make the coming year bigger and better than ever. However the truth of the matter is, the majority of those plans will fail within the first month.
Here's a list of our Top New Years Resolution Mistakes in relation to health and fitness. And more importantly, how to make sure you don't make the same mistakes!
Without doubt, weight loss would be the number 1 in the Top New Years Resolution Mistakes. Who doesn't want to get fit and healthy and lose a little weight right?
However it's only a very small percentage of people who stick this goal past January. The reason for this is that more often then not people set NYE as a point in time where after they can no longer eat the foods they enjoy.
Things like cutting out entire food groups or stopping things you enjoy like going out for lunch or dinner. And basically setting yourself up for failure.
So how do you stop yourself from making this mistake? Simple! Make you weight loss sustainable! You don't need to go balls to the wall with you diet and make huge changes. Start small, limit yourself to eating out once a week. Or getting your carbs in around training and you will notice huge long term changes!
A fad diet is just that, a fad! It's short term. A fad diet can certainly make you lose weight in the short term, but they are not sustainable. Doing a diet like Keto is setting yourself for failure 95% of the time, because in the real world people eat carbohydrates.
And you are bound to find yourself in a situation where you have to eat them at some point in the future, whether it's at a family gathering or wherever you may be.
So in short, don't get caught up in the short term diets. Think bigger picture and pick a diet approach you are going to be able to stick with for the long term!
For some people alcohol is their crux. They are consistently finding themselves in situations where they feel forced into drinking. So how do we stop you from breaking your NY resolution to drink less?
Find yourself alternatives to drinking. If your normal idea of catching up with friends is going out to a bar and catching up over a few drinks, substitute the bar to a restaurant. That way you can still catch up, eat some food and make it not as obvious you are not drinking.
Becoming fit and healthy is one of the Top New Years Resolution Mistakes without doubt. Every January gym memberships sell like hotcakes with people wanting to get fit and healthy after splurging over the festive season.
However a lot of people fall off the wagon pretty early, so how can we keep the NY resolution of getting fit? Try out the following:
- Hire a personal trainer! Get someone to help your workout and keep you motivated!
- Join with a friend.
- Start slow by going a few times a week, and build yourself up to 4-5 days a week, give yourself a chance to get hooked!
