Dec. 31st is that day when one year closes and a new year of opportunity stretches out before us. We often enter the year with a list of "resolutions" or "goals". For many people on this website that includes fitness, nutrition and weight loss goals.
For some the food fest that begins at Halloween and marches through Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year's leaves us with a few extra pounds that cause us to put that weight loss goal back on the front burner come January 1.
No matter where you are on your journey you have TEN weeks to yet make progress! Ten weeks is a LOT of time. You can build a new habit in that timeframe. I can think of some that would be worthy of effort:
1) giving up/reducing soda pop
2) getting regular cardio
3) doing weekly strength training
4) increasing water consumption
5) beginning a 5K training program
6) cooking more healthy meals at home
My point here is that IT'S NOT TOO LATE! Why WAIT! What a GIFT you can give yourself by making progress NOW! Even if you only lose 3 pounds between now and Jan. 1 it's three pounds LOST and no pounds GAINED!
Build your momentum now and come January you don't have to make a NEW resolution you just keep PRESSING ON into 2014!
TEN WEEKS... Think of the possibilities! Think of what YOU can achieve! You won't know if you don't start!
I'll be right here on New Year's Eve to celebrate what I HAVE done and look forward to what I WILL do. Want to join me?
