Here We Go 2019!

There is something about starting a New Year that allows for all of what didn’t work the year before to be put behind me.

I begin to think about what it is that I want to accomplish in the New Year and looking at what it will take to do so.

I have made New Year’s resolutions before but quickly they fell out of existence…mainly because they were “great ideas” but I failed to put a plan of action to achieve them in place.

Now, in the first week of the New Year, I fill my calendar with actions. Actions that will propel what I want to accomplish and I do it in 3 month increments. I set out my schedule of what I know I already have to do. ie. Work, homework, accounting, etc. and then I add in my personal workouts (I schedule my fitness like I do work), meetings, phone calls, etc.

Yes. I teach fitness classes, however, I also do some personal fitness goals just for me as well as a mind, body, spirit regime of reading, meditating and more. Honestly, if I do not schedule this stuff in, it doesn’t happen and I had to get really straight with myself about that.

Left to my own devices, I could binge on Netflix or find 1000 other things to do before taking care of me. Yup. I am just as guilty as the next person!

Action plans create just that….ACTION!

Imagine yourself 3 months out from where you currently are and walk back from that point to what you had to do to get there and write it all down. Use a google calendar! Put a calendar app on your phone, or if you like to go ‘old school’ write it on a piece of paper and go to work!

Remember, do not beat yourself up if you miss an action. Just put it back in existence and look towards that future you are creating.

Be kind to yourself and be in action.

Make 2019 your BEST YEAR YET!

Do You Want to Win at Your Fitness Goals for 2013?

Here we go! Off and running for another year….or dancing, whichever you prefer!

This morning I woke up with the “This is it! Let’s go!”

It’s time. The holidays are now in the past but our bodies may still be struggling from the after effect of all the yummy treats , dinners and cocktails.  The line was drawn at midnight and now its time to put that action plan in place of how you will support your body in being at your healthiest for 2013!

Many times people go “all guns blazing” in January to get fit and then by February they are exhausted and done with the whole fitness regime.  Gym memberships are at an all time high in purchasing and by mid February, beginning of march an all time low for using.  It really doesn’t have to be that way.

Set yourself up to WIN this year! Create a program for yourself that you can actually follow and commit to without jeopardizing anything else you have going on this year.  Plan your workout and work your plan.

Find a fitness structure that you can set aside 60 minutes at least 1-3 times a day to begin.  Even if what you see is once a week right now, start with it. You have to walk before you run.  If you go sprinting from the gate without the training required, you will quickly quit what you started.

Go on the internet, ask the “google gods” what types of sports or fitness styles there are. Seriously, put in words of what you love to do and I assert that some types of fitness you will enjoy will come up. It’s a place to start. I found zumba by entering in “cardio fitness dance”, and POOF! There it was!  Who knows what might come up for you!

Once you discover a fitness that you will enjoy doing, find it near where you live or work. To have this resolution for 2013 really have sticking power, you have to find it near you. Statistics show that people who find fitness programs near where they live or work are more likely to stick to it. It’s a simple fact….who wants to drive an hour out of their way to work out for an hour? Keep it simple!

If you want fitness programs brought into your workplace, contact me! I make it very simple for people to stick to their goals by bringing my programs to you as an option!

Once you have the routine down on 1-3 classes a week, you can increase the number of classes or tweak what you are already doing.

Plan to WIN in 2013!
