Happy New Year Fitness Peeps!
The other night, while rockin’ it at the gym, I had an epiphany. And I decided that 2017 is going to be another spectacular year.
I’ve been working really hard this past year on my strength training and in this upcoming year, I am going to make defining my muscle tone an attainable goal. In fact, in helping me do so, my brother and sister-in-law got me a freestanding boxing bag…. just like this one:
So, now I can box my sweet heart out without having to leave the house (although, I still do love to attend a class), in addition to teaching my classes, hitting the gym, running, and attending my ritual Thursday night Zumba class.
Now, all that being said, I know that I do need to set attainable goals. I’m getting older and my body and metabolism and hormones change. It’s not as easy to lose weight as it once was. So, my goals really need to be realistic. But there’s no reason why I shouldn’t be able to hit them….or to strive for them.
And you can too. You can make 2017 your best year ever.
Set yourself some goals. Make notes on how you will change your lifestyle so that you can, indeed, change your life. Will your “resolutions” include working out more, eating less, strength training, finding your spirituality or mental clarity, becoming more social?
Just remember that no matter what you decide and what you aim for – your results will not be the same as your best friend’s or your running buddy’s or your partner’s.
You will likely not end up with the same fit bod as your favorite celebrity (although, you never know – maybe it will be better!). Whatever you do, make sure you’re making changes for you. For better health and for longevity.
And as always, remember: You’re Worth It!
