Happy New Year-ish!!!
Here we are…5 days into the New Year! Are your self doubts from your resolutions starting to kick in? Maybe you still have that confidence and motivation but you are finding yourself slacking. Whatever your situation is, keep in mind you are only human.
So many people get caught up in the “New Year, New Me” and get this weird perception in their head that everything has to go perfectly now to achieve your desires. Psshhtt! Honey, no one is perfect. In fact, perfection will be the one thing that burns your butt faster than that new squat routine you’re doing!
What does this quote mean to you?
For me, it means I will try my hardest but I will allow myself to be happy with my limitations. Just because Susie Sally is hitting that gym hard, doesn’t mean that you have to burn yourself out comparing your progress to hers and trying to do just like her. Keep in mind every ones body, lifestyle, schedules, etc. are different. This is your journey to your own personal happiness! Stressing about progress, results, and all the stuff that it takes to get it done will only make you miserable. This is how old habits and giving up happens. Go your own pace and remember you have a whole year to do this!
Plan Your Attack
I know my number one mistake is just jumping right on in. I get this thought/idea in my head and immediately I feel so motivated I have to do it and I have to do it now before I can procrastinate! And then I end up writing this post because I gain inspiration from crashing and burning – HAHA!!!
Seriously though, you have to plan. Goals and resolutions take time. They all require what I call “Mini Goals” to achieve the bigger picture. Yes, that big ol’ resolution looks mighty fine but how are you going to get there? That’s why I created my first ever FREE printable for my newsletter subscribers this month. It is a 2017 New Year’s Resolution Monthly Planner!

What’s in the planner?
Well basically, it’s your plan of attack! It is how you will plan your goal(s) out in small baby steps the rest of the year. In the planner, I ask you to list your goals and what you think it would take for you to achieve them a.k.a. mini goals. Then we break it down from there into daily, weekly, and monthly steps to get to your ultimate finale!
Awesome right? I even included a special little, write in and dated, calendar for every month so you can track your progress and keep yourself accountable every day!
I am a visual person. If I see a to-do in front of my face for the day it’s going to get done versus me juggling a billion to-dos for the month in my head and trying to sort them all out when I can.
Do you feel a little better now?
I know I do. I just gave myself my own little pep talk writing this. Everything is possible. Your goals and resolutions are not a race against time. Sure, we all want to bask in the glory of our accomplishments but you have to put in work to get there and Rome was not built in a day people! Just keep your head up, keep moving forward, and when you start stressing about it, consider dialing it back a notch to regain your passion and focus. Don’t allow yourself to snuff out your dream!
What is your main New Year Resolution this year? Mine is to take better care of my mind and body through supplementing, a better diet, and exercising. These baby bingo wings have got to go and so does this crippling fatigue!
