It's Not Too Late To Keep That New Years Resolution

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) A New Year means, resolutions, while many Americans make them, most resolutions fail. About half have already given up by February

Eric snow, Trainer at the YMCA of Twin Falls says, “Just the lack of seeing results. A lot of times when people are getting into a specific goal and specifically weight loss they want to see something take place they want to see the pounds come off really quickly, they want to see drastic changes, for the most part that is not going to be the case.”

Janalee Hope of Wright's Physical Therapy adds, “Unrealistic goals would be a very huge factor, and then not setting aside appropriate time and focus on it. And then thinking that failure is the end, It’s not.”

Just because you ate too much at that Super bowl party or took a week or two off from the gym doesn’t mean it’s the end of what you want to accomplish.

Hope said, “Those perceived failures are not necessarily failures they’re just setbacks you can learn from"

There are ten months left in the year that means you can get back on that wagon and try again.

Eric snow, says, “It’s never too late to start. The best way to go about it in my opinion is not to try and do everything at once. Try and set a smaller goal so you can work towards that, and like i said before maybe see those results a little bit quicker or see that come to fruition a little bit quicker.”

Realistic goals, small changes that work into your lifestyle and realizing that set backs are not the end will help you be successful on what you want to achieve.
