Let's keep the goals to a minimum this year. Why not have 2 basic tactics for being a fitter and healthier individual? Here are 2 Basic Tactucs to set now that the New Year has begun. Keep these two goals and you'll feel better about yourself when that clock strikes midnight in 2015.
Tactic #1: What Motivates You? What is it that motivates you to exercise or to eat well? Is it about feeling healthy and upbeat? Do you want to feel sexy and powerful? Do you like the feeling that you are battling the unhealthy forces of our on-the-go society? Whatever it is, set that as your main reason to be motivated to hit the gym, buy healthy foods, and stay active. Don't let the world beat you down, beat it up!
Tactic #2: Discipline! So you know what motivates you, now be disciplined with your plan. Its easy to let other elements of life interfere with your plans. Sometimes, you have to let it happen. But improvise if life requires you work late, find time to do exercise in the morning or evenings. If all you can do on one day is walk, then walk as far and as long as you can. It's better to do something than nothing at all.
Everything else will fall into place as long as you stay motivated and maintain discipline throughout the year. Set these 2 tactics now and see how 2014 pans out! Good luck!
