It’s a time to re-engage yourself. To look to the future and upgrade yourself over the past year.
2020 presents a unique challenge in that it was an awful year. Emotionally, a wreck. Physically, distanced. Plus, an often-underestimated factor: in-person social interaction.
It’s fairly safe to say 2020 was nobody’s year.
However, this doesn’t make it any easier to become a healthy person. In fact, the stress piled on top of you may be so great you find may find it difficult to be motivated at all.
And yet, there’s hope.
If you desire it, you can manifest it. It’s a matter of work and dedication. Those traits are all the more important if you have 3 of the top 4 resolutions: exercising more, eating more healthily, and losing weight.
Keep reading to find out how you can achieve your exercise and weight loss goals… the SMART way and the NES way.
Sticking to Your Weight Loss Resolutions
There’s a terrible failure rate when it comes to resolutions. (Once again, there’s hope, but you must acknowledge and accept your previous failures to truly overcome them).
80% of resolutions never come to fruition.
It happens year after year. If you’re in the 20% that make it, you know the best ways to be successful in your endeavors.
But for those of us who don’t, need a little help.
The problem, more often than not, is simply framing your resolutions. Vague goals like “Lose weight” or even “lose 20 pounds”, give you a high risk of failure.
Without a defined goal, it becomes very easy to lose track and fall off the cliff. That’s why it’s so important to set SMART goals.
Now, if you’ve heard of this before, it’s no surprise. But there’s a glaring problem that affects almost everyone.
SMART stands Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Based.
Here’s the problem: when people that try to remember what it stands for, they typically remember specific, measurable, and time-based.
A goal often looks like: Lose 20 pounds in 20 days.
However, that’s not a SMART goal at all. Here’s how that goal should look.
I will lose 20 pounds in 3 months by going to the gym three times a week, doing 20 minutes of cardio and 20 minutes of lifting weights.
A: Achievable nearly always gets ignored. Losing 20 pounds in 20 days is not achievable. If you don’t make an achievable goal, you are dooming yourself to failure.
What’s also important is HOW you’re going to do it, or R: Relevant. How you’re going to hit your goal needs to be relevant to the task. You’ll see further success if you make that part specific as well.
Achieving Your Weight Loss Goal – The NES Way
Getting to the gym and exercising is not easy to do. Motivation dies quickly. It’s why gyms get you to sign up for year-long contracts. They know most people will stop coming by March. For them, it’s free money. They don’t care if you hit your weight loss goals as long as you’re paying them.
As an aside, eating a healthy diet is VERY important in losing weight, but this article focuses on exercising.
The reason people stop exercising are not hard to find:
- I don’t have the time
- I always hurt after I exercise
- I don’t have the energy
And, “it’s not working.”
More often than not, the reason you’re not seeing results is just a matter of consistency.
Overcoming reasons numbers 2 and 3 will change that.
“I don’t have the energy”
Not having energy is a pervasive problem that extends beyond the gym and your ability to lose weight by exercising.
If you’re experiencing a lack of energy, it means your bioenergetic fields aren’t tuned properly. Getting a scan and finding out your biggest needs is the best way to support your energy levels.
A quicker, albeit less comprehensive way, is to take our Source Energy Infoceutical. Just as the name implies, Source Energy addresses your depleted energy, especially due to mental exhaustion, stress, toxic exposure, poor breathing, and much more.
The result of you taking it is you’ll have the energy to not only get you to the gym, but to put a good workout in.
“I always hurt after I exercise”
Experiencing pain after you exercise is normal. It happens to everyone.
If you haven’t been exercising lately, or you’re working out differently, you’re using muscles that have been dormant for months or years. These muscles are not used to doing any real work, so they complain in the form of pain.
Plus, when you are trying to build muscle, you are literally tearing it apart. By exercising, you create microtears in the muscle. These gaps are filled in, your muscle tissue gets bigger, and you get stronger.
Once again, it’s completely normal, but it’s a constantly emitting pain that gets much worse if you’ve been sitting for a while. It’s enough to make you never want to exercise again – even as you wrestle yourself to stick to your SMART goal.
Stretching before and after exercising can help prevent much of this pain. Rejuv is an infoceutical designed to help you rejuvenate the body after sports and strenuous exercise. More importantly, it aids in tissue regeneration, muscle recovery, and muscle building – allowing you to not only feel less pain than you normally would, but also helping build muscle so you’re able to SEE the difference in the mirror and on the scale.
Losing Weight in 2021
Nutrition and good sleep are absolute musts to lose weight, but exercise is integral to helping you look and feel better.
Writing a well-defined SMART goal to lose weight in 2021, and sticking to it, increases your chances of success ten-fold. Just be sure to update your goal once you achieve it!
To upgrade your odds, take our Rejuv and Source Energy Infoceuticals can help eliminate the reasons you might be struggling.
Rejuv helps prevent post-exercise muscle soreness and Source Energy can help you get the energy you need to not only get you to the gym, but also get you through the day without feeling like collapsing on the couch.
