Come on people! A favorite quote of mine, "people who don't WRITE down their goals, work for people who do". It works. Here are a few more tips: have goals in a visible place, put a deadline date on them, focus on what you have to do to meet your goal and not the goal itself, make it achievable and reframe or lower your goal if necessary. It's your game so you can make the rules and change them whenever you want. If you don't have a clue as to what is realistic, guess. You NEED to have goals.

Learning to read labels, portion size and moving everyday lead to our success. Our children need to be given the "tools" to succeed - we spent time reading labels in the grocery store and I created a kit for my daughter to help her with measurements and reading labels. It worked and she still uses the kit and has maintained her weight for the past 3 years! We lost a total of 160lbs together and created a fit healthy lifestyle.
First off, everybody is different. Whether it's gender, body type or mind set, everybody is built different, that is what makes us so unique. I just don't get why people want to look like a certain celebrity or athlete, unless you have the time to put into it, the resources to fund it and even the same DNA set up, chances are not everybody is going to look like a certain someone. I have dealt with this on more than one occassion. I remember when I was training, one of my clients/ acquintances wanted to have abs like "Jersey Shore" and only work on biceps as well.
On New Year's Day, while waiting for 2013 to arrive, I watched the movie "We Bought A Zoo" with my daughter and husband. The movie is an inspiring story about Benjamin Mee. Benjamin has lost his wife. In a bid to start his life over, he purchases a large house that has a zoo. This is welcome news for his daughter, but his son is not happy about it. The zoo is need of renovation and Benjamin sets about the work with the head keeper, Kelly, and the rest of the zoo staff. But, the zoo soon runs into financial trouble.
Getting back into shape, and becoming healthier is the most chosen New Year’s Resolution. More than half of Americans make New Year resolutions year after year. Of that half, 75% give up within by March, and of the remaining 25% only a quarter of them truly maintain their resolution and turn it into a healthy lifestyle.
As 2013 emerges, millions of Americans will set a New Year’s resolution that involves exercise, eating healthy, or weight loss. These are great goals because 60% of Americans die from illnesses connected with poor eating habits or lack of exercise. However, if you have been down this road before, and your success fizzles by January 15th it’s time to make some changes.
