Have you ever made a New Year's resolution to lose weight and get fit and NOT followed through? Don't feel bad if you have, in fact nearly all New Year's fitness resolutions to get in great shape get abandoned not long after they are begun. I should know I've certainly been there and experienced the same sense of let down myself.
The good news is that it doesn't have to be that way. Follow the ideas in this Guide and take action to implement them and this can be the year that sees a new you - an ideal lean and healthy you - emerge. I've used them successfully and seen them totally transform lives for the better.
They work as long as you WORK them!
You may be wondering if it's worth the effort. After all, for most of us, while getting into shape is rewarding it's often not easy. I'd argue, if you want a really high, extreme quality of life being fit isn't a WANT, but a NEED. Here's a few reasons why, to ponder before you begin. I hope they'll help motivate you.
You Will Be MUCH More Attractive.
Let's face it, a big part of getting fit is its visual appeal. If we are married, in a relationship or single it's always nice to know we look good isn't it? Being in shape not only sends out the right message about who we are externally, but for those who think about it for a minute it also tells a compelling story about who we are internally.
The type of person who cares about themselves, who has self-discipline and is far from lazy. These qualities are universally attractive. Making yourself more attractive for the New Year and beyond is a great reason to take fitness seriously.
You Will Become Healthier, Fast.
Our health is our true wealth. Cutting down our body fat, getting in better cardiovascular shape and making smart diet changes will do wonders for our health. Barring any accidents these moves are nearly certain to add years to your life. They are certain to add quality of life either way.
Your Energy Levels will Sky Rocket.
Having more abundant energy stores carries over into nearly every area in our lives. This means being more productive at work without having to get strung out on four cups of coffee ever morning, to being able to get back into that old sport you love, to being able to play with the kids without needing to take a nap on the couch. Believe me, the important people in your life will appreciate the difference nearly as much as you do!
You Will Beat Depression.
Now you may not be suffering from feeling down often, but the hard truth is that many out of shape people do. Getting fit is the best cure for melancholy! Forget taking drugs or mumbo jumbo therapy - carving out a new fit you for the New Year is quite likely to chase depression away for good. Try it and see.
These are much closer to NEEDS than WANTS aren't they? There's plenty more too, these are just some of the more common things that come to mind.
Now, Let's get you Fit for the New Year!
Chapter 1 - Why Most New Year's Resolutions Fail
If the statistics can be believed (and they probably can) some where in the neighborhood of 88% of New Year's Resolutions are given up on after a few weeks. A smart bet would be that the vast majority of these New Year resolution false starts and stumbles are broadly speaking, health related ranging from fat loss to quitting smoking and everywhere in between. Which brings us to the next big question... Why do most New Year's Resolutions Fail? Knowing some of the big reasons why they fail gives us an idea of what to watch out for when it comes to making sure our New Year's fitness resolutions are an absolute blinding success. Let's see...
Putting Too Much On One Plate.
Now I don't mean that literally in how much food you are eating in this case (though that may be true too!) what we're looking at is having too many Resolutions that target too many areas of life.
Big changes require big focus. If you NEED to lose weight and get more fit for the reasons we have already discussed make getting fit a priority. Worry about getting that raise at work, learning a new language and some of the other things you may want to do after you have accomplished this important milestone.
The upside of getting fit first is that your new found confidence, energy and self-discipline will make your future goals MUCH easier to achieve. Fitness can be the foundation of the new you!
Often New Year's Resolutions enter the land of pipe dreams, because we leave no one accountable to them but ourselves. If this was enough most coaches and motivational speakers would be on the unemployment line. Human nature dictates that we are much more geared towards accomplishing our dreams when we let others who are important to us know about our plan and they hold us accountable to them. Even having online support through forums and discussion groups on fitness can be a huge help. Having no accountability beyond yourself is setting yourself up to fail.
An Unwillingness To Try New Things.
If you keep doing the same old things there's no doubt you will continue getting the same old results. This is a unbreakable rule which requires that we step out of our comfort zones, sometimes radically, to see dramatic change in our lives. Since you are taking the time to read this Guide, I'm very confident you are open minded enough to consider and try new things to get the body and health you deserve. Congratulations on delivering a blow to this foe of New Year's fitness resolutions already!
Thinking there is a "Easy" Way to Get Fit.
Losing ugly body fat and getting your dream body to become a reality isn't easy, despite what supplement hustlers and infomercials may try to sell you.
It requires hard work, sweat and dedication. Smart tips and insider information, like you will find in this Guide and elsewhere, can and will help, but please don't think it will be "easy". Hardly anything worthwhile in life ever is.This also means when you do succeed you will have every right to be proud of your hard earned accomplishments. This alone can be worth the price of admission! Now that you are better prepared to know what negative elements to be on the look out for let's dig into our program!
