Now is the time to set new goals. All of my clients set goals every 6 weeks. I tell them to include in the goal how they will achieve it and how they will measure it. An example would be:
At the end of 6 weeks, I will run 1 mile without stopping. I plan on doing that by running at least 3 days a week. Week one will be 1/4 mile and each week I will add .10 mile until I get to one mile. This year, I am also going to ask them to not only write down their goal and sign it, but also say it out loud every day.
As far as nutrition, I recommend never getting too hungry by eating frequently and increasing their lean protein. I also stress the importance of keeping a water bottle wherever you go.
The final element for success is circuit training which burns the most fat in the shortest amount of time and increases not just endurance, but strength.
