It’s that time of year again when we all make a commitment to living a healthier lifestyle, focusing on self-improvement or finally getting that coveted six-pack. Unfortunately, statistics show that 80% of all New Year’s resolutions fail by February and only 8% are kept by the end of the year. If you are ready to get serious and crush your New Year’s goals, Muscle Research is here to help. What are your goals for 2018?
Set Realistic Goals
If you set an unrealistic goal, you are undoubtedly going to fail in your efforts. Instead, try setting smaller stretch goals to provide an accurate timeline that gives continued, exciting results. For instance, if you want to lose 60 pounds, instead start with just 20 pounds and then continue once that goal has been met.
Too many people expect their New Year’s resolution to just happen or ultimately lose the motivation to keep pursuing it. With the majority of them revolving around weight loss, it’s important to remember that the process is a journey, not a quick fix. This means spending time in the gym beyond the first 2 weeks of January and making a commitment to improving your diet.
Take Before Photos
One of the easiest ways to track your progress or find some hope in a time of need is to take before photos. You see yourself in the mirror every single day, meaning that you likely won’t be aware of the gradual changes your body is going through. If you stick to it, months later you will be surprised to see how far you have come.
Recover From Failures
If you are like most people, you will eventually break down and have a cheat meal or skip your gym session. While not immediately a failure, these will often lead to continued reinforcement of these bad habits, pushing you further away from your goals. If you have a moment of weakness, don’t beat yourself up. Instead, get back in the saddle and use it as motivation to crush your goals.
