New Year, New Mom!

Happy New Year

It’s that time of year. Everyone’s deciding whether they’re going to join a gym or start a diet or finally ask their boss for that raise.  I don’t usually make resolutions.  Mostly because I think that they don’t work; if people wanted to change their habits they would just do it, not wait until a specific day of the year. Any who here is a list of the top ten resolutions most women make…

Lose Weight
Getting Organized
Spend Less, Save More
Enjoy Life to the Fullest
Staying Fit and Healthy
Learn Something Exciting
Quit Smoking
Help Others in Their Dreams
Fall in Love
Spend More Time with Family

Here are a few reasons why many people fail and don’t achieve their New Year’s resolution:

want instant gratification
set unattainable goals
don’t create milestones
don’t reward themselves throughout their journey
refuse to share their goals
write down your goals and milestones
don’t look for additional benefits to eating properly or exercising
find barriers that prevent you from achieving your goal

If you set unrealistic goals, you are setting yourself up for failure before you even start your weight loss or exercise journey.  As a busy mom, it is very important to set attainable goals if you want to reach your end goal.  Most mom’s are so busy taking care of family and house, most don’t have time to spend hours at the gym.  However, you still can still find an ample amount of time to focus on yourself.  What are some ways a busy mom can find time to exercise?

  • go walking together as a family
  • hit the gym a few times a week
  • find a workout program that you can do in the comfort of your home
  • purchase workout equipment
  • buy Wii or Xbox games that allow you to be active while having fun

The best way to achieve your goal to create several smaller goals.  Once your meet a milestone, reward yourself.  This not only gives you something to look forward too, but it helps keep you motivated.  Good luck!
