Many of you already know that I am planning to get married, YAY! I, like everyone else, want to look my best on my wedding day. And, like everyone else, I needed a workout to help me reach my goal. Few things can motivate a gal like a wedding or an invitation to one, right? That's right, even as a trainer, instructor and nutritionist, we pros have to plan our workouts to reach our goal too.
Trying to lose weight and get healthy can often seem very isolating. After all, our friends and family can't lose the weight for us. Creating and maintaining a healthy support system of family and friends can often make or break your fitness commitments. Using a support group will not only help you stay motivated, but will impact your relationships in a healthy way.
For most of us, the New Year spawns new commitments to health, nutrition, and overall wellness. As the newness of your resolution starts to fade, the hard part begins. How do you actually stick to those health goals you set in January?
Keeping a log of your activities and food consumption will help you understand why you are or aren't achieving your goals. Tracking your habits will help you take an honest look at your successes, failures, and results. If you gained a pound this week, look at how many times you went to the gym or how many servings of desserts you had.
