This year, we all made some of the typical New Year's resolutions. We want to quit smoking, spend more time with our kids, and drop a few pounds. They are all great goals, but as February has arrived, how are we doing?
If you have found yourself lagging behind on meeting your goals, don't get upset. Making a resolution on January 1st is a good time for renewal, but today is just as worthy of change.
Don't give up on your dreams. There are many healthy diets out there that are still waiting for you. The South Beach, Atkins, and other numerous plans are still our there waiting for you. But you have to take charge to make the change.
If you are putting it off because you don't now which one is right for you, talk to your doctor or other health professional. They will be able to help you with a plan that is safe and effective for your dieting needs.
Adding a workout to your new way of eating will increase your chance of success. Not only will it help you to shed a few pounds, you will feel better than you ever expected.
But where do I start, you ask? Again, you and your doctor will be able to determine what is right for your goals and abilities. You don't have to go full bore at the gym. There are plenty of exercise equipment options that you can take advantage of in your own home. They don't require a lot of investment, and many dealers offer gently used equipment at reduced prices.
There are some wonderful tapes or DVDs that can also make your home workout easier. You can gradually increase your workout as you feel comfortable.
Remember that there is always a time to make a resolution for a better life. Just because January is gone doesn't mean you have to wait until next year. It is easy to make excuses, but the excuses have no rewards.
