The Short Question That Makes All The Difference for Keeping Your Health Resolution

This morning, gyms across America will be packed.  It is January 2nd, which means that resolutions have been made to get in shape.  As the year draws on, some will end up keeping their resolution toward greater fitness and others will not.  What’s the difference between those that attain their health goals and those that don’t? 

When we set a resolution concerning our health, often we answer a series of one word questions…

What? Lose Weight = 10 pounds

Who? Me.

When? In 2012.

Why? So I can be healthier for my family and myself.

Often this is as far as the questions go in setting a resolution.  It is good that these questions have been answered.  There is a goal, a timeline, and a motivating factor within the resolution.  There is just one questions missing.  It is perhaps the most crucial of questions when it comes to getting in shape… HOW?

There are thousand ways to get in shape.  Running.  Biking or spinning.  Lifting weights. Participating in a sport.  Counting calories.  Cutting sugar and fat intake.  The list goes on and on.  Unless you choose a course of action you will not make it to your goal.  Answering “How?” is so important.

If you are looking for some good advice on which pathway to choose, a helpful source may be to talk with someone who lost some weight or got in shape in 2011. They have usually answered the “How?” part.  They can give you practical insights and inform you of potential pitfalls along the way.

Make 2012 one of the healthiest years of your life!  Start with answering “How?”
