For many people, new healthy habits can be a natural routine in as little as 21 days. While everyone is different, it’s about that time of year where new years fitness resolutions have either taken form as a part of the routine, or may have been broken. If you’ve had a bit of trouble sticking with it, this post is for you! It’s never too late to jump back on the wagon and make this your year! Here’s a road map to get you back on track with your fitness resolutions.


  • Forgive and forget. First and foremost, if you want to get back on track, you need to let go of the hurdles behind you. Instead, focus on where you want to be. Forget what happened last month, let’s focus on this month!

  • Reassess the big picture. How big was your resolution? While it’s good to be ambitious, a main reason people give up on resolutions is because the goal seems too large. Instead of committing to the gym seven days per week, try three. If you made a resolution to lose 40 pounds this year, try 20. The smaller goal will seem more attainable, and you may feel more motivated!

  • Set smaller goals. Now that we have reassessed the resolution, take a moment to think about smaller, more manageable goals to help you along the way. Think of it like this, your resolution is the masterpiece, and smaller goals are the individual brush strokes. They go hand in hand.

  • If your big goal is to lose 30 lbs, focus on a smaller goal of 1 lb per week. If you’d like to run a marathon, start by committing to run 5-10 miles per week, and adding a mile each week. Whatever your goal may be, break it up into smaller pieces and you will feel more motivated every step of the way!

  • Buddy up! One of the best motivation tricks is to team up with a fitness buddy. Not only is it a great way to hold each other accountable, you are also able to celebrate success, share struggles, and work through things together! Be sure to find someone who shares similar fitness goals so you are both on the same page.

  • Join a class! A wide variety of fitness classes are offered at most gyms these days. You can find anything from hip hop aerobics, kickboxing, spinning, yoga -- you name it! Find one that sparks your interest and give it a shot! Signing up for a class will help motivate you to get moving because you’ve made a commitment to set aside time. Also, being a part of a class with like-minded people will help keep you inspired!

  • Start journaling today! If you’re not keeping a personal journal about your fitness, start today! A journal is a great way to keep track of your daily food consumption, physical activity and sleep schedule, as well as how those things affect the way you feel. Keeping an accurate record may help you pinpoint a few things that are sabotaging your fitness success. Adjust accordingly, and you will be on the right track for hitting your goals!

  • Try a natural supplement! Along with a reduced-calorie diet and moderate exercise plan, a natural supplement like Meratrim® could be just what you need to help you reach your fitness goals. Meratrim® was shown in two randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies to be safe and effective for weight management.

Research data shows that Meratrim® may help people reach their weight management goals in as little as two weeks. The studies also showed that participants receiving Meratrim instead of the placebo steadily experienced better weight loss over an eight-week period.

It’s important to reevalute your health and fitness a few times per year to make sure that your daily habits are assisting you in the right direction. If you’ve found yourself off the resolution wagon, it’s never too late to jump back on! With these tips, your goals can still be within reach. You could be looking back six months from now, happy that you decided to give it another shot! You can do this.
