Transforming your body takes hard work and commitment... Will 2016 be your year?
According to Statistic Brain, slimming down was the number one New Year’s resolution for 2015. The same site also revealed that only 8% of people successfully fulfill their resolutions.
When it comes to weight loss, the reason the success rate is so dismal is because people often lack the motivation and drive to see their plan through.
Initially, there is a lot of excitement as you tell yourself “this time I’m finally going to do it.” However, a few weeks into the program, the motivation dwindles especially as you fit into your schedule workouts that you would rather not do.
One missed workout leads to another before you say “to hell with it” and just abandon what was initially a firm resolve to transform your body.
Don’t Do It Alone
Many experts recommend setting a resolution with someone else or even in a group. This way, you have other people to rely on when you feel the motivation slipping.
Another way to stick to your fitness plan is to receive continuous support from someone who is an authority figure in the fitness niche.
Create a Schedule
Write it down on a calendar the days you’re supposed to be performing HIIT and strength training.
When it’s written down, it becomes ritualized and non-negotiable should you become tempted to rationalize out of skipping a workout.
Ask yourself questions to find your resolve when you feel it’s lost.
- How will I feel if I lost 30 pounds by the start of the second half of this year?
- How will I feel when I can confidently take off my shirt at my company’s next annual pool party?
- Wouldn’t it be nice if I can finally fit into that new pair of designer jeans I saw at the mall the other day?
- How ashamed will I feel if I abandoned my resolution again just like I did the year before?
See the New You in Your Mind’s Eye
Can you imagine yourself with six-pack abs instead of a potbelly? That would make you extremely confident, wouldn't it?
Visualization is a powerful tool and you should use it to your advantage. You have to believe that you can and visualize what it is you want to achieve in order to be successful.
Create an image of what your ultimate goal is and constantly remind yourself of what you want to achieve. You'll be surprised how effective this can be.
It’s Never too Late to Start
Even if you’re reading this post well after January, it’s still not too late to begin; you can begin a resolution at any time.
The road to a better body (and a better you) is not going to be easy. There will be many temptations, especially when seeing delicious cookies at the grocery store, or when you would rather hit the snooze button when you’re supposed to be out of bed for a morning HIIT session.
The workouts, tips, and community support are all part of a bigger collective to ensure you’re among the minority 8% that actually saw his or her resolution to the end.
