The first few months of every new year most people think back on the last and consider the improvements they should have made. They want to do things better in the new year, whether the resolution is a nutrition diet plan or a plan to further their personal, work, or fitness life.
Even with new year’s resolutions, clear goals, and motivation, many people find it difficult to improve. A few months passes and summer approaches and you find yourself still trying to get a hold of your diet plan. If you want to learn how to stick to your guns this year, read on for some great basic nutrition tips from our coaches at Gloveworx to help you get and STAY summer ready.
Focus Is Crucial
The key to reaching your goals is focus. Pick one thing or area to focus on instead of trying to improve every single part of your life. Now, take that singular idea and narrow your focus to a specific aspect that you want to improve.
If Fitness is Your Goal…
Let’s talk fitness. If there was ever a point in your life when you were active and you want to return to that level of fitness, the best way to start is to shoot for half of what level of “shape” you were in back then.
If you could run one mile a day, run half a mile a day. Were you going to the gym four times a week? Cut that in half and go to the gym twice a week. Using this strategy should help you find out how committed you really are to the broad resolutions you’ve made.
Your Resolution for a Diet Plan
While many people think that working out is the best way to get fit, eating healthy is one of the most crucial parts of a resolution diet plan; and finding your nutrition compass is key. Implementing a nutrition guide can strengthen your efforts without stifling you. Your guide should be about more than what you should be doing, it should also encompass things to absolutely avoid.
When a person makes the decision to implement a new year’s resolution diet plan, along with a workout regimen, you give yourself a better chance of success when attempting to improve your overall health and well-being.
Guidelines for Your Health
When dealing with your nutrition compass, try to have one or two basic rules to live by that you can adhere to as much as possible. These rules can be as broad or as specific as you like, as long as you absolutely stick to them. It’s also a bonus if these rules work well with each other, where following one rule also helps you follow the other.
One good diet plan resolution is to cook for yourself. Even when eating something “healthy” at a restaurant, you can’t be 100% sure what’s in your food. Take control of your meals and cook every day. You may also want to implement a “no high fructose corn syrup rule” to enforce better shopping habits. This rule forces you to read nutrition labels and make better decisions about what you buy. These two rules work hand-in-hand to get you shopping and eating better every day.
