The festive season is right around the corner and for many of us that means our health and fitness goals often go out the window! Sugary, salty, fatty foods are all around us during December, which makes it all the more important to set some fitness goals as part of your New Year’s resolutions.

January is the perfect time to start healthy habits that will see you through the year, with a diet plan and fitness routine. Unfortunately, it’s also the coldest and darkest time of the year, which can make you feel more like curling up in front of Netflix with some chocolate than hitting the gym or taking time to prepare a healthy, well-balanced meal. So just how do you stick to your New Year’s resolution fitness goals? We’ve got some top tips to keep you on track!

Plan and Prep Your Meals

meal planning and preparation

When you’re tired after work, all you want to do is throw a ready meal in the microwave and eat it on the couch in front of your favourite TV show. You’re not alone! That’s where meal planning and prep saves the day. Rather than having to cook something healthy for dinner every night of the week, you can set aside a specific time for planning and preparing your meals, making weeknights much less stressful, or check out the pre-made meal plans we offer at Diets 2 Go, to make your life that much easier when the January rush kicks in.

You’ll save time and money, as well as ensuring healthy portion control that can help you with your fitness and weight loss goals. 

Buddy Up

They say there’s strength in numbers, and when it comes to fitness, that couldn’t be truer. Buddying up with a friend (or two) to workout is not only great for your body but strengthens your relationships too. Plus, it’s an excuse to catch up with your favourite people while motivating and supporting each other to reach your fitness goals. Working out with a partner helps with accountability too, so you’re more likely to stick to your plan.

Variety is the Spice of Life

Don’t stick to the same old boring workout. Research has shown modifying your workouts every couple of weeks means you’re more likely to enjoy working out and more likely to stick to your exercise routine, compared to doing the same workout over and over again. It’s an excellent excuse to shake it up, try something new and challenge yourself physically.

Track your Progress

We all like to feel we’re achieving our goals, and what better way to keep on top of this than with a fitness tracker app? Apps like MyFitnessPal track your goals and help motivate you, making it more likely you’ll stick with your get-fit pledge.
