5 tricks to make your resolution stick
That time of year has come, and we all know it too well. This year it’s going to be different, this year we are going to lose weight and keep it off for good, this year we are going to finally be able to fit into that little black dress or that pair of jeans in the back of our closet that we haven’t worn since college. The New Year’s resolution!
So many of us make these and so many of us fall short come March. Some of us do really well for a little while, we convince ourselves that "this time it's going to be different" and then, what happens? Our motivation fizzles out, we fall off track.
How many people know WHAT to do, but don't always do it? Many of us! That’s because, knowing isn't enough. It's not what motivates us to action. We are suffering from a high fact diet. We’ve got a lot of theory, but we’re not putting it into practice.
I am here to help with all that. As a fertility and hormones coach, I coach clients every day to get out of their ruts and to start making consistent habit changes that last so they can lose weight, balance their hormones or get pregnant naturally which is HUGE considering how hard it is to do this on your own.

Make a small commitment and stick to it- It doesn’t have to be some huge life changing resolution. It can be as simple as; I am going to have 1 more glass of water than I had yesterday until I get to my goal water intake or I am going to go to the gym at least 1 time this week. The point is to do SOMETHING every day that moves you closer to your goal, stick with it and be consistent.
Practice gratitude-Gratitude is something that feeds your soul inside and out. If you are grateful for those around you, for your accomplishments and for the person you are you will be healthier, happier and have more joy in your life. Get a gratitude journal and start this practice today.
Enjoy self-care for 15 minutes per day. This can be something as small as doing deep breathing while in your car or taking a walk on your lunch break. If you don’t take care of yourself who will and how will you take care of others.
Add in one new food per week- This is a great way to excite your taste buds and cut your sugar cravings. If you are constantly giving yourself new foods, it’s really hard to get bored and binge. Bonus points if this new food is a veggie!
Get in bed 1 hour earlier each night. Or even each week. Start small and create this new habit, slowly. Sleep is just as important as what you eat so aim to get at least 6-8 hours and you will feel and look better than ever.
