It’s no surprise that weight loss is consistently the number one New Year’s resolution. It may surprise you, however, that a measly eight percent of people who make a resolution are actually successful (Forbes).
Weight loss is a daunting goal. Rather than overwhelming yourself with the pressure of such a drastic change, break your overall goal up into smaller achievements that will set you on a healthier path and ultimately inspire long term change. Rather than focusing solely on weight loss, focus instead on overall wellness.
Here are some healthy starter goals for 2016:
- Simplify your coffee (no sugar, syrups or artificial additions!)
- Cut out soda and fruit juice
- Reduce your intake of refined carbohydrates
- Incorporate more vegetables
- Walk more
The Lyric features a spa like fitness center allowing residents convenient access to state of the art equipment. An easy way to get started is to hop on a treadmill and try walking on an incline…you can even enjoy your favorite TV show while you walk!
