Keeping Up with Your New Year's ResolutionsPosted By: Muscle Research On 1/4/2019
If you are like most people, you likely have made it your goal to lose a few pounds or pack on more muscle this year. Unfortunately, like those people, you likely fall short of your goals and give up prematurely due to time constraints or a lack of progress. If this sounds like a common problem for you as each new year begins, here are some ways you can keep up with your New Year's Resolutions and crush your fitness goals.
Set Realistic Goals
Sure, you may want to lose 100 lbs. or pack on 50 lbs. of muscle by the summer, that likely won't be a realistic goal that you can achieve. Making sure you set small goals will ensure you remain motivated and don't become disheartened at the lack of progress you are seeing. Be sure to consistently weigh or use calipers to gauge your progress and stay on track to achieving your ideal weight or physique.
Bounce Back from Slips
It can be incredibly easy to give up once you falter for the first time. However, this is a defining moment that often determines whether or not you truly will succeed and keep up with your New Year's Resolutions. It's not uncommon for us to have an urge to have a cheat meal and give in. The real struggle is knowing when to get back on your diet to ensure you are making the most of your time and efforts.
Track Your Progress
Before you begin your New Year's journey, make sure you take the time to take before photos to gauge your progress. Because you will likely see yourself each day while minor changes are occurring, you won't have a clear picture of the progress you are achieving. If you stick to your goals and the plans you have adopted, there's a good chance that you will see a drastic difference when looking at your before photos in a few months.
