There’s still time to take advantage of the new year hype! To help you stick to your resolutions, we wanted to highlight some things that might be counter-productive to your health and fitness journey.
It isn’t about just being active or just eating healthy. In order to excel in your health and fitness goals, you need to commit your time and energy to both active living and healthy eating. The two go hand-in-hand; a poor quality diet will likely result in a less active lifestyle.
Start slow. If you push too hard too soon with – let’s say – your fitness goals, you are at a greater risk of injury. Additionally, if you jump right into a diet without considering your lifestyle or nutritional needs you are not likely going to stick with it long enough to see results.
Hold yourself accountable. Achieving any goal depends greatly on your ability to commit yourself and hold yourself accountable. One great way to ensure you stay on track is by keeping a fitness and nutrition journal.
