If you’ve set a goal of getting in shape or losing weight in 2023, you are not alone!
Fitness resolutions and weight-loss resolutions are some of the most common New Years Resolutions that people set for themselves. Though, as you probably know, most don’t actually end up succeeding.
If you want to ensure that you meet your goal, strictly follow these guidelines to help keep yourself on track. Keeping yourself on track is the key to success.
Making a fitness resolution is a great way to commit to a healthier lifestyle, but it’s important to set yourself up for success. Here are the four guidelines to follow to ensure you succeed with your fitness resolution:
Get rid of expectations
It’s natural to have goals and aspirations when it comes to fitness, but it’s important to be realistic. Don’t set yourself up for disappointment by setting unrealistic goals or expecting too much too soon. Instead, focus on small, achievable steps that will help you make progress over time.
It’s not about whether you CAN achieve your goal, it’s simply about how long it’s going to take. Most fitness and weight-loss goals are very realistic, despite how crazy people might think they are but where people go wrong is expecting too much too fast.

Enjoy the process
The journey to getting in shape is just as important as the destination. Don’t view your fitness routine as a chore or something you have to do, but rather as an opportunity to improve your health and well-being. Find activities that you enjoy and that fit into your lifestyle, and don’t be afraid to mix things up and try new things.
The reality is, if you’re going to make a lifestyle change, it needs to be permanent. If you don’t enjoy doing something, it’s going to be very easy to QUIT.

Celebrate small wins
It’s important to acknowledge and celebrate your progress, no matter how small. Whether it’s fitting into a pair of jeans that you haven’t worn in years or running/lifting a personal best, take the time to appreciate the hard work and dedication you’ve put in. This can help keep you motivated and on track to achieve your goals.

Figure out if you’re doing it right
It’s important to regularly assess your fitness routine to make sure it’s meeting your needs and helping you make progress. If you’re feeling burnt out, it may be time to make some changes. Consider working with a personal trainer or another fitness professional to help you determine the best approach for your needs.
By following these steps, you can set yourself up for success with your fitness resolution and achieve the results you want. Remember, the key is to enjoy the process, celebrate your progress, and make adjustments as needed to ensure you’re on the right track.
