4 ways to KEEP your New Year’s resolutions

Sorry I haven’t posted anything for awhile. I have been SO busy with my family. But here are a few tips to keep your resolutions for 2014!!!

1.) KEEP IT SMALL

Let’s be honest, no one really finishes a big goal, like lose 20 in 5 months (I have no idea if that’s healthy or not…I just needed an example) You want to create small goals so you can complete them quicker which motivates you to keep going cause everyone loves completing something you’ve been working on. Example: drink 8 glasses of water everyday and workout 3 times a week. You may not lose all the weight you want. But you are changing your lifestyle so you can.

2.) NARROW IT DOWN

You want a specific goal. If it’s too broad you won’t get it done. EXAMPLE: you want money for the summer (too broad, how much do you want?) You want $1000 by summer (how will you get it?) First you want to get a job (small goal complete) and then make a change jar or something.

3) DON’T DO IT ALONE

I’m a procrastinator. I have to work with someone else in the room or else I won’t get work done. So if you’re like me, get a friend. You want to lose 10 pounds, tell your friend. Then get them to keep you motivated. Maybe the both of you can go to the gym together. Or both get part time jobs to save for the summer. Whatever it is. HAVE A FRIEND DO IT TOO.

4) TIME LIMIT

Tell yourself when you want your goal to be completed. If there isn’t a time limit then you’ll probably push it off, or lose motivation. So set a short time limit.

Good luck with your New Year’s resolutions!!!
