This month, we are celebrating the “Festival” that most Chinese are looking forward to! And that is our Chinese Lunar New Year! Apart from collecting red packets, exchanging festive greetings with our love ones and indulging in the New Year goodies, one of the most important items on the list is to set our new year’s resolutions for 2018!
No doubt some would hate doing that but it sets our path and move us ahead. In any case, nothing beats having a purposeful direction and working towards it. This cast the gloomy and serious tone on “have you set your fitness or health goals for 2018?” e.g. losing 5kg or a size down from what you are wearing, etc.
Probably the best way to start is to start putting all the talks into physical actions and stick with it!
1. List down 3 main tangible fitness or health goals that you would like to achieve this year. E.g. lose 5kg by June, having fast food once a month only.
2. Write down the action plan that is needed to achieve the goals. E.g. hit the gym twice a week, go for a 30min jog thrice a week.
3. Revisit the action plan and note if the action plan was met. E.g. ran 2 out of 3 times on week 1, went to the gym 1 out of 2 times per week.
4. Re-adjust action plan if you’re unable to fulfil for 3 consecutive weeks. E.g. Week 1 you only manage to complete 50%, week 2 only complete 30% and week 3 none.
Hopefully, once the above have been put into writing and revisited on a regularly basis, the person would be able to channel that into a daily / weekly basis and keep up with the activities. Do bear in mind that the onus of achieving the goals will have to be on the person who wants to achieve it and not on those who are going to assist him. Finally, all the best and we hope that you are able to achieve your goals on your journey to better Fitness and Health!
