Ditch the New Year’s Resolution!

Making Healthy Lifestyle Changes That Last

 

by Kristy Warren, , - January 25, 2018

A new year, a new you? When it comes to healthy resolutions, our resolve is often fizzling by February. We start each new year excited to better ourselves, so why don’t our resolutions to eat better and exercise more stick? Our healthy resolutions often fail because we’ve set unrealistic, short-term goals instead of manageable long-term goals.

One of the most common New Year’s resolutions is to lose weight. When trying to lose weight, we sometimes treat food as “the enemy.”

Jessica Monger, a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator with the Laurel Health Centers, sat down with The Home Page Network to talk about ditching unrealistic resolutions for lasting lifestyle changes.

Learn how food can be healing and help you meet your wellness goals as Jessica walks us through little changes that add up to big differences in our health and happiness.

Three Simple Steps toward Better Health:


1) Set realistic goals and celebrate progress. You’re not likely to lose 20 pounds in a week, but with a better diet and tailored exercise, you can achieve a healthier life. It is also very important that as you hit smaller milestones, you take the time to acknowledge your success. It empowers further progress!


2) Follow the fresh start mentality. Don’t beat yourself up if you backslide a little or don’t meet your goals every time. Every meal, every exercise session, every moment of meditation is a chance to get back on track to your fitness goals. 


3) Stay accountable. Choose a way to track your progress and hold yourself accountable. Whether it’s keeping a food journal, reviewing stats on an exercise app, visiting a dietitian, or working out with a friend, adding that other layer of accountability to your routine keeps you on track. You may want to consider working with another person toward your goals; working out with others can create a fun, new social activity!

No two people are exactly alike, and our dietary needs are often just as unique. Meeting with a dietitian is an excellent way to identify and customize a plan to improve your health. Whether you’re hoping to lose weight, balance your diet, or struggling with high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or diabetes, a certified dietitian can provide the guidance and support you need to reach your goals.
