Did you know that only 8% of people who make New Year resolutions actually achieve them? 8%!
The number 1 resolution for 2014 was weight loss. Only 8% of those people actually lost weight.
That statistic scares me. It scares me because I know what it's like to have a goal or a resolution and have no idea where to go or what to do to make it happen. I know what it's like to want something, but have no means to do it. It's a feeling a lot like failure. And failure isn't a good feeling.
The fourth most popular resolution for 2014 was to enjoy life to the fullest. That means so many people aren't already doing so. That hurts my heart.
The most important resolution you need to make for 2015 is to be happy.
Find what makes you tick and do it. Don't worry about failure. Don't worry about obstacles. Most importantly, don't make excuses.
Set yourself up with a support group of people that want the same things for you that you want for yourself. Permit them to hold you accountable. Don't just state a resolution, set up a plan with steps that you fully intend to carry out so that you can be part of the 8%. By golly, I hope it's higher than 8 in 2015.
If you're interested in weight loss, clean eating, or healthy habits, let me be the one to support you. Let me be your coach. I would love to celebrate your accomplishments with you this time next year.
Most importantly, just do it. And in the words of Salt-n-Peppa, do it real good.
What are your resolutions for 2015? What are you going to do to make them happen?
