Treats That Will Help You Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions

newyearMore than half of us make New Year’s resolutions, while less than eight percent of people achieve those New Year’s goals, according to a research study done by Scranton University as quoted in Forbes Magazine (Dan Diamond, 2012).

Ranging from quitting smoking to losing weight or eating healthier, often New Year’s Eve revellers have great intentions—at least for a week or maybe even a month—but by the time we are breaking into that heart-shaped box of chocolates for Valentine’s Day, our goals are as quickly trashed as the plastic wrap covering those chocolates!

How can we stick to those New Year’s resolutions?

Set small goals. Commit to losing five or 10 pounds rather than saying you will lose 50 pounds. Smaller goals seem more doable. Setting short term goals like losing 5 pounds this month, along with long terms goals, may make the process less overwhelming.
Make a plan and write it down. Take out that new day book and pencil in the three days this week you will hit the gym. Get a diary and keep track of what you eat.

Say “I will”. Just changing your wording from “I want to” to “I will” helps reinforce the commitment.

Prepare for slip ups. No one is perfect. So you had a piece of birthday cake or three martinis with friends, just get back on track the next day.

Keep it real. Choose an exercise or diet or exercise plan that suits your personality, your needs and preferences and one that is realistic. Ask yourself, can I stick with this plan over the long run?

Stock your kitchen with healthy food. Find products that help you in your quest to keep those resolutions.
