As the holidays are approaching fast, I know most of you are already thinking about those New Years resolutions of how you can be better and healthier next year, right?
For those that haven’t thought of any yet, I am challenging you to make a new one and really commit to it. I know what you are thinking to yourself right now, “There are just too many resolutions I need to make, so forget it.” I understand that this time of year can be extremely overwhelming and you may want to run away at times. I can assure you that I feel the same way sometimes! It’s okay, and you are normal. I also want to tell you that the more you put off making those positive and impactful changes in your life, the more they will slip away and you will be even more behind in reaching your goals.
If you have ever thought about losing weight or always wanted to try that fitness class, but haven’t yet, now is your chance to commit and make the time to do it. 2018 is around the corner and even though it is so cliche to say, time waits for no-one and life is short, you are blessed enough right now to have another New Year ahead to not only be interested in accomplishing something for yourself and your health, but now you can follow through and commit for once.
To make a quality change, you have to plan ahead and put the time in. I understand we all want a quick fix, but in reality, that doesn’t exist if something is worth it. The more time you put into something that you want, the more results you will get. I remember when I first started learning about clean eating and did not know a thing about what that meant. I had to commit myself to reading, taking classes, and researching everything and anything I could in books and online so I could use my knowledge to help others.
I went from being extremely interested in learning, to making a full commitment because I knew that fitness and health was my passion and calling. Whatever you are striving for or want to make some positive changes, you have to become fully committed or it will never happen for you. Think about losing weight. How many times have you “tried” to lose weight, but fell off the wagon? Was it because you were interested in losing the weight but couldn’t commit day in and day out?
You might be asking yourself, “Why do I always do this to myself?” The reason is that you did not have a plan in place and a commitment to go with it. There is a big difference in being interested or committed. I want you to decide which one you are and what it is you are going to make happen in the New Year. Commit to yourself, to your goals, or to your family. As a fitness and health coach, I can also hold you accountable with my new 8 Week Reset and Recharge program launching January 1st. Do you have what it takes to finally make the commitment you always wanted to make to live a healthier life?
Whether you want to change your physique or change your life, you will never see improvement if you stay in your comfort zone. I am a firm believer in the saying, “if it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you.” Are you ready to take on a new challenge and become fully committed? If so, I want to hear from you in the comments below or message me on social media. Facebook Kelley Tyan or Instagram @kelleytyan. I believe we all need a tribe to back us up. So what are you waiting for? The New Year is coming, start preparing now!
