It’s a new year and will it also be the beginning of a new you?
How many time have you tried making a New Year’s resolution? Or one you’d actually make a commitment to and it stuck?
So what is your New Year’s Resolution, what do you want to change about yourself, or life? Is it to finally lose that excess weight once and for all… start a walk/jog exercise program; spend more time with the family; get out of an unhealthy relationship; stop a bad smoking or drinking habit; get a new job – move from an unhealthy environment…
Can you guess what the top New Year Resolutions are for 2018?
As long as I’ve been involved within the fitness industry there have been two top contenders: Weight loss and get more fit [almost always in that order].
This should not surprise anyone especially when national statistics show nearly 60 million adults, or about 30 percent of the adult population, and now more than a third of all U.S. children are overweight or obese.
To lose weight and increase fitness levels requires a commitment through a healthy lifestyle change action plan. A major reason New Years Resolutions don’t work – there is no plan to motivate and steer the course.
First you must target what unhealthy environment, habit or behavior is causing the weight gain and unfit condition. Then once you’ve targeted the unhealthy situation – try to incrementally reduce and remove it through consistent healthy habit change.
For instance, if you have a bad habit of eating too many processed foods; cut back on them, or remove the really bad ones from the diet. OR if you spend most of the day sitting, take a portion of that day and commit to a daily walk, or some other form of aerobic activity you enjoy 15-45minutes/day. OR if you have a bad habit of drinking too many artificial sweeteners: Aspartame and HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup) in sodas, juice and coffee will only add weight… change to drinking more water, natural drinks; coffee and tea without additives.
As a personal fitness trainer and healthy lifestyle consultant for years, I’ve heard an earful on diet-fitness fads and gimmicks to lose weight, enhance physical performance and increase muscle bulk and strength… people don’t want to change their “I WANT IT NOW” behavior. Instead they’ve been conditioned to believe they don’t have to change – because the marketplace provides short cuts to heal what ails the mind, body and spirit – NOW. What many consumers don’t know, those quick results gimmicks and fads makes someone a ton of money at the expense of your health.
Before you purchase the next great diet or fitness fad gimmick, keep this in mind – many weight loss and anti-aging and anabolic-like supplements MAY provide significant results short term for certain groupings of people who’s metabolism is not yet broken.
Notice I said, “NOT YET.” “It’s not a matter of IF, it’s WHEN – ‘IF CHEATING the metabolic habit is not broken.”
When products artificially ramp up, or accelerate hormone systems and overall metabolism artificially, those physiological functions and systems lose efficiency and will eventually break and/or cause illness and disease at some point in time. The manmade CHEATING – metabolic accelerators include: anti-aging steroid-like supplements, high concentrate herbal and anti-oxidant cocktails, etc., designed to help you lose weight fast, increase muscle mass and enhance physical performance – in an unhealthy way.
Natural weight loss, muscle growth, toning, well-being and anti-aging SAFE-programming must be relative and compatible with individual lifestyle change goals. AND WITHOUT Engineered and Manipulation of Natural products. Also if a natural or unnatural weight loss program or plan is not relative to a current health or environmental condition; or food variety and personal activity preference… it can’t be sustained long term either. This includes exercise activity to become more fit.
In other words, if your not enjoying the habit changing experience… you’ll not commit to it long term and then fall for the next marketplace gimmick or fad in attempts to achieve a quick result.
IF you seek professional services to make positive lifestyle change – Buyer BEWARE: Lifestyle change programs designed for one client should not be plagiarized from someone else’s program and applied to you. If this is the case, don’t expect a similar weight loss or muscle bulking, or toning result. That is not how relative-personalized, or customized fitness or healthy lifestyle change programming works.
I know most of you have no back ground in customized fitness and healthy habit change programming where natural weight loss can be achieved by anyone and sustained long term [provided an medical condition doesn’t prevent achieving that goal].
If you’ll allow yourself to think in the following terms, you’ll begin to understand the basic foundation of NATURAL fitness and healthy lifestyle change programming logic to achieve a positive lifestyle change naturally. ONE THAT WORKS FOR YOU!
We are all of various age, sex, personality, genetically wired differently, culturally diverse, have different body types; experience various levels of wellbeing, spiritualism, motivation, will power… Have different lifestyle needs and wants within changing social and cultural environments, etc.
Now you begin to understand why one fit healthy lifestyle change program or product will not work for everyone, or in the same way. AND may increase health risk LONG-TERM regardless of who uses the manmade gimmick or fad flavor of the month.
So how can you successfully and safely plan to create a new you for the New Year? Especially if lacking the skill sets to make that New Year’s Resolution stick?
