New Year’s Resolutions are tough to keep. In fact, many different studies show that the majority of us will have given up on our goals 3-6 weeks later. That means that by Valentine’s Day, many gyms have lost their January crowds and several of us have piles of kale wilting away in our fridge, reminders of the good intentions we had just a few weeks prior. Health goals are one of the most common goals made during the New Year, and one of the hardest to keep. What is a guy or gal to do to stay focused on their health goals? We have come up with a few tips to keep your health goals on track.
- Keep it simple. One of the most important aspects of taking care of your body is to fuel it properly. Drink mixes are a great way to get your body the nutrients it needs fast and with little effort on your part. Blender Boyz smoothies can be beefed up to contain protein powders, superfoods, and even some vegetables for a little extra bulk and vitamin power. Additionally, these smoothies are going to taste a hundred times better than that wilting kale that’s stuck in your vegetable drawer!
- Break goals down. Setting long-term goals can be daunting. Instead of telling yourself you’ll go to the gym every day and only eat salads, try smaller goals like adding vegetables to every meal, making Blender Boyz smoothies for breakfast, and commit to going to the gym 2-3 times per week for two weeks. Build up your goals and reward yourself frequently with non-food incentives like a new book, outfit, or haircut.
- Temptation bundle. Allow yourself something you enjoy but only when doing something you might not enjoy. Only listen to a thrilling mystery book while you run or only watch a certain show while you’re at the gym.
Simple fixes and easy solutions can help you stay focused on your health goals this January. With smoothies from Blender Boyz, you’re already on your way!
