Happy holidays, Beaches! I'm not sure how we're a week away from the new year but here we are. 2016 it's been real but it's time for us to move on...
Some may argue that making a 'new year's resolution' is at the top of the list of the most cliché things you could do. They're not wrong but does that truly matter? The key to making a good new year's resolution is making it realistic for yourself. I cannot tell you how many times I've decided I'm going to have a Victoria's Secret bod by the end of the year and then was so angry at myself when I didn't achieve that goal. Having a killer bod in a single year is definitely an attainable goal for some very hard working people but realistically I have WAY too much on my plate (pun intended) for me to achieve such a goal. And honestly, I like pasta too much to give it up. See how committed I was? Now I'm not saying you shouldn't push yourself a little bit and get out of your comfort zone when making your resolution but do not decide to do something completely unattainable. For example: if you've never ridden a horse before don't make your resolution that you'll be in Tokyo representing the USA in the 2020 Olympics. Maybe decide that you'll take a lesson every week for a few months and then compete in a local show. Totally doable and still challenging enough that you feel like you've accomplished something. As for me...I'm shooting for a six pack. Maybe a three pack, we'll see how far I get. In general making, a new year's resolution about your personal fitness can be tricky. Some people say okay this is the year I change my lifestyle and then they join a gym, knowing they despise the gym, and then they stop going after a week and are stuck paying for something they always kind of knew wouldn't work. If you hate gyms but want to start working out more DO NOT JOIN A GYM. Take some classes for now and figure out what kind of workout you enjoy! I hear from so many people that they hate going to the gym blah blah blah and they never go so they're unhappy that they're not exercising. Yoga, kickboxing, cycling, Zumba, krav maga, rock climbing, pilates, dance, rollerblading, rowing...that's only a small list of physical activities that I can think of off the top of my head. There are ENDLESS possibilities when it comes to finding a gym alternative! Yes, sometimes those classes are expensive. Did you know Netflix offers hundreds of workout videos? You could Netflix and chill or Netflix and kick some ass. Or both! Why do you have to choose? Your resolution does not have to involve fitness either. Maybe you just want to read more, or maybe you want to change your look a bit. If you're looking to spice up your look a bit you KNOW we got you!
