Well, like I said yesterday, over the next week, I’m going to delve a little deeper into each of my 7 thoughts for successful resolution-making.
So without further ado, here’s Tip #1
I know you all want to hear my thoughts and read all about the 7 fantastic tips that I have for making your resolutions a success this year (and I appreciate it), but my first piece of advice is this: “Don’t wait – start now!”
Start to think about how you are going to bring these to fruition… and as you do this, think about implementing these action-steps NOW! Maybe it’s on a smaller scale than intended, maybe it’s a little different than you thought the important thing is that you start!
“But my goal is to go to the gym 3 days a week and I don’t have the money to join right now”.
Start working out at home! Set aside the time that you were allotting for the gym and use this to do some exercises at home – form the habit of including physical activity into your week. And hey, this foundation you are laying might serve you well when it comes time to transition into the gym.
“I’m waiting for my first issue of Runners World that Uncle Johnny gave me for Christmas. The January issue always has great beginner tips in it.”
I’ll pretty much guarantee that one of the first tips is to run! So go for a jog. See how it feels. Take it easy if you’re worried about overdoing it, but you know what… you’ve just taken the first step towards achieving your goal of running. Okay, okay, you run to the mailbox everyday to see if the magazine is there – I get it.
