Look into 2014: What did you accomplish in 2013?

If you are persistant you will achieve your goal. But to keep that goal, to maintain and to grow you have to be consistent. Same with your fitness and nutrition. You can’t complete a workout program and go back to your old ways, but if you stay consistent with what you have learned it becomes a lifestyle and your results stay the reality!!!

As the year closes ask yourself what have I accomplished this year? What can I do to make sure that I am always looking forward to keeping those accomplishments and continually growing to better yourself!?!?!

Make #2014 your year!!!

I am totally inspired and excited to start 2014 with a bang.  The ideas are flowing in my mind on  how I can help others next year to reach their own health and fitness goals.  I am about to launch a brand new revised and improved New Year New You Health and Fitness Group.  So I am inviting those that follow me first!

So what is this health and fitness group you ask???  Well, it’s a program that I has been created to help you reach your own personal health and fitness goals.  No long will we say to ourselves, “I will start on Monday.”  or “2013 is the last year I resolve to lose weight.”  or “No more muffin top.”  You are not going to make a new years resolution and not follow through with it.  I see it all the time.  People start out January 1st strong.  They go to the gym, they eat healthy and week 1 and 2 are great.  But by week 3 and 4 the gym becomes empty and you slide back into your old ways.  February 1st rolls around and you throw up your hands and tell yourself that you are just destined to be this way forever.  You find excuses like you are too busy or something else gets in the way.  YES I can totally identify because this used to be me.  I did the same thing.  I committed to a one year gym membership because I was 100% sure I was going to stick with it this year.  Then, I went to the gym for a while, didn’t see jaw dropping results in the first few weeks and I didn’t change my eating habits so I made excuses and eventually bailed out.  But, I paid for an entire years membership despite by shotty attendance.

So, that’s the first step!  Workout! Then, nutrition!!!  Nutrition is 80% of your weight loss results.  I talk about it all the time because it was always the missing piece for me.  I would cardio myself to death but never eat right so I was always frustrated with my results.  I mean, I thought I was eating right when I choose the 100 calorie pack of oreos vs the real thing or diet coke vs regular.  But what I was missing was the fact that it wasn’t really healthy at all and it wasn’t adding nutritional value and I was feeling worse instead of better.  It wasn’t until I embraced Clean Eating that my results drastically changed.  I finally had muscle definition, energy, and I didn’t feel like I was starving.  So my job is going to be to teach you how to not diet, but how to create a healthy lifestyle with whole nutritious foods that you don’t have to search all over for.

The last piece is Shakeology.  It’s not a weight loss shake but instead it’s a total meal replacement shake. It’s not a protein shake its a well balanced meal that is equivalent to 6 salads in one glass.  It has been the one thing that keeps me full, tastes really good and has saved my rear a thousand times when either I didn’t make it to the grocery store or I was in a hurry and needed a quick meal.  What was once a run thru the drive thru is now a shaker cup and a scoop of Shakeology!  I feel better, I look better and honestly it’s worth every single penny!  It keeps me healthy and its at least one meal a day that I do not have to think about.  I’m at my weight loss goal now but I still drink it every day because it has everything that my daily multivitamin should have!

If so then fill out the application below to be considered for my New Year New You Challenge Group starting on January 6th 2014.  Don’t delay the last day to register is tomorrow January 1st, 2014!!!!

Tips on how to stick to your NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS!

Make Your New Year’s Resolution Stick!

By Kara Wahlgren

 

Want to lose weight? Get a promotion? Take over the world? Here’s how to make sure your New Year’s resolution becomes a reality.

First, the bad news: The odds are stacked against you. A few years ago, psychologist Richard Wiseman conducted a study of 3,000 people who had set New Year’s resolutions for themselves. At the end of the year, a measly 12% had actually achieved their goals.1 But don’t let those bleak stats kill your mojo—there are a few easy ways to make your goals more attainable, so you’ll be toasting your success next December.

Plan ahead.

It’s January 2nd—do you know what your resolution is? For the best chance of success, set your goals long before you want to start them. Wiseman says that reflecting on your goals a few days before the New Year will make you more likely to choose a meaningful resolution2—which, of course, will make you more motivated to work for it. Still haven’t set a goal? That’s okay. Make one now and set yourself a start date a few days from now.

Shout it from the rooftops . . .

. . . or at least share it online. According to Wiseman’s research, women were more likely to succeed if they told their friends and family about their goals.3 After all, you wouldn’t want to fail in front of a few hundred of your closest friends, colleagues, and high school exes—would you? Make your resolution Facebook® official, tweet about it, or post a “before” photo on Instagram®. Accountability is your friend. Tag me in it! @nikkikubanminton on IG, @nkubanminton on Twitter, and Nikki Kuban Minton on Facebook!

Strategize.

Once you’ve decided on your Big Important Goal, come up with a few smaller objectives that can help you get there. If you resolve to lose weight, commit to doing your INSANITY® workout every day. Or hire a personal trainer and buy sessions in bulk. Or take a two-mile hike every weekend. “Intention is very different than action,” says Daniel C. Stettner, Ph.D., director of Psychology at UnaSource Health Center in Troy, MI, and an adjunct professor at Wayne State University in Detroit. “People have to come up with tactics and strategies. Otherwise, it’s like driving to a destination without directions—you’re not going to be successful.”

Think positive . . . but not too positive.

 Notebook with New Year Resolutions on themIf you paid attention in English class, you might remember “doublethink” from Orwell’s 1984—the ability to accept two opposing beliefs as truth. In this case, you need to accept that you can succeed and that you can fail. In his book, 59 Seconds: Think a Little, Change a Lot, Wiseman points to research by psychologist Gabriele Oettingen, who found that imagining success kept people motivated, while imagining failure helped them form “avoidance goals.”4 In other words, it’s okay to fantasize about firing your annoying cube mate when you become manager—but also devise a Plan B in case you get passed over for this round of promotions.

Know thy enemy.

Willpower is overrated. According to a recent study in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, people were more likely to be successful if they avoided temptation altogether rather than expecting superhuman self-control to kick in.5 So figure out what changes you can make to sidestep your biggest roadblocks—can you take a different route to work that doesn’t pass a bagel shop? Can you block Facebook on your computer to free up more time for new projects? Can you switch from your usual hangout to a non-smoking bar? A few small lifestyle changes can prevent big pitfalls.

Reward yourself.

We all love instant gratification. So when you’re pursuing a long-term goal like weight loss or digging out of debt, short-term rewards will help you power through. Just make sure the rewards jibe with the ultimate goal—don’t reward a week of workouts by eating an entire chocolate cake. If you’re trying to slim down, for example, Dr. Stettner suggests buying a new outfit you can’t squeeze into (yet!) or working out with a friend so the reward is built-in.

Don’t let setbacks derail you.

Spoiler alert: You’re human, so you’re going to screw up. Don’t let it discourage you, and don’t use it as an excuse to let the rest of the day (or weekend, or month) go down the tubes. “There are going to be lapses, but a lapse doesn’t have to be a collapse or a relapse,” Dr. Stettner says. “Seek persistence rather than the dirty P-word, perfection. Don’t think, ‘I went off the plan today, so I’ll start over tomorrow.’ Salvage it. Save the day.”
