No Junk Food January For Your New Years Resolution

Welcome to 2011!

Hope your Christmas and New Years Eve were fantastic and that you caught up with family and friends and had a great time.

I really made the most of sleeping in each morning, sleeping during the day, surfing the small Perth waves, catching up with my family and friends I rarely see anymore and spending coutless hours at the beach.

New Years Eve was fun too. Thats me and some mates in the pic.

We cooked up a feast, went out to several parties, laughed and reflected back on the year that was, and made New Years Resolutions. Good times.

My New Years Resolution doesn’t make sense to a lot of people because it’s different to the usual.

New Years Resolutions are rarely kept because people make them based on the outcome.

We all know it.

We’ve all made the claims before. ‘I’m gonna lose 5 kilos’, ‘I’m gonna give up chocolate.’

Sure you are.

I don’t believe you, but I do want you to prove me wrong and I know the following will help.

A couple of years back I got tired of making goals for the new year and not achieving them. I set unrealistic goals and never seemed to be even close to them. Then I figured out what I was doing wrong with my goal setting.

I was planning the outcome, but not planning the action required to reach the outcome that I wanted.

You need a plan. You need steps in place to reach the goals.

You wanna lose 5 kilos? Here’s 5 action steps to get there:

1) Plan to eat NO JUNK FOOD for all of January

2 ) Join an exercise program that you need to commit to such as a gym, personal trainer or bootcamp

3) Buy and eat only natural foods

4) Don’t eat too much

5) Cut out any processed drinks including fruit juices, alcohol, soft drinks and drink more water

If you commit to those 5 action steps as your new years resolution, you will reach your goal.

So what’s your new years resolution?

Mine is to drive a supercar.

I wanna experience what it’s like to drive a Ferrari or Lamborghini or Porsche. To achieve it, I need to earn reasonable money and save it. I need to commit to a time to doing it with a deadline.

And even though I may have the money and the time I still have to follow through with it.

It’s the same with you and any goal you set. There’s always an end prize, but it’s the steps along the way that ensure you reach the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Good Luck for 2011!
