Most of us make New Year’s resolutions and never stick to them. We may make some changes at the beginning of January but always fall back into our old habits.
There could be a few reasons why we don’t succeed with our New Year’s resolutions:
We try to change too much at once. If you try to change too much at once, you are almost guaranteed to fail. The trick is to learn how to set small attainable goals. These small attainable goals turn into healthy habits once you commit to them. For example, instead of telling yourself I will never eat fast food again. Set a goal to limit fast food to 2x per month or whatever amount you feel is EASILY attainable for you. In order to lose the weight and keep it off, we must create healthy habits that we enjoy! Which leads me to my next point.
We force ourselves to do things we don’t like to do. In order to create a healthy lifestyle, the healthy habits must be things you enjoy! If you try something and don’t like it, find something else that you do enjoy. Everyone is different. There is no one diet or exercise that works for everyone. Experiment and figure out what you like. Certified Health Coaches, like myself, help clients figure out what works best for their bodies.
We don’t know how to commit to ourselves. It is so hard to keep our promises to ourselves when we are not used to holding ourselves accountable. If you can hold yourself accountable and commit to just one small attainable goal, you will be amazed at how your self-trust and belief in yourself improves within a few weeks!
We think we have to be perfect and when we aren’t, we use our mistakes as an excuse to quit. Does this sound familiar? You do well for a couple of days and then you eat a ‘bad’ food. You tell yourself, “See, I told you that you couldn’t do this” and then you binge on cookies, cakes, or pizza. You resign yourself to always being overweight and unhealthy. You tell yourself, “I guess this is just who I am. I can’t do this. It’s too hard.” These are all FALSE things that your negative inner critic tells you! Your inner critic is responsible for sabotaging your efforts. Let me make this clear:
Mistakes are a part of the journey!
It is ok to make a mistake. Learn from it, do better next time, and move on. Your mistakes make you stronger and help shape you into the healthy and happy person you are meant to be.
