So most of us are just wrapping up our first work week of 2016! And if you work in retail may the lord be with you during the January sales/Christmas Returns period!
Last Monday was most peoples starting date for all their New Years Resolutions and new goals for the year ahead, if your having trouble sticking to your New Years Resolutions check out my earlier blog post Top Three Tips To Stick With Your NY Resolutions! to help you stick to your New Years Resolutions!
I have had a few emails asking about what are the best fitness/health resolutions to make, you know real ones that are realistic and that you will be able to stick to. So I wanted to make a post of my top 10 mini resolutions that will be easy to stick to and will make a great difference!
Add intervals: Maximize your cardio with intervals. Playing with the speed burns more calories than working at a steady pace and it also revs up your metabolism.
Ditch dairy: Eliminating it from your diet can make a big difference in your health. If you can’t say goodbye forever, try eating it at only one meal a day.
Lift more: Grabbing heavier weights can be the swift kick your muscles need to show off your strong and toned physique. Don’t be afraid to up the ante.
Cut the condiments: Save tonnes of calories from your meal by cutting out mayo, ketchup, or fatty salad dressing.
Try a new class: Crossfit? Yoga? Boxercise? Try something new to keep your body guessing and see results sooner.
Drink more water: From boosting your metabolism to improving your immunity, water is the one elixir you need more of in 2016. Make a point to sip all day.
Eat more protein: This macro-nutrient makes a huge difference when it comes to losing weight and staying energized.
Skip the second cup: Bow out of your second cup of coffee, and start opting for green tea instead. Your body will thank you later in the night!
Plan on Sunday: Pencil in your workouts for the week on Sunday evening. You’re much more likely to make them happen if a plan in already in place.
Say yes: Whether it’s a new ingredient, intimidating class, or glass of green juice, just say yes. You’ll never know until you try.
So there you have it! Simple yet effective mini resolutions that pack a punch! If you have some cool mini resolutions I would love to hear them!
As always love & positivity
