Ever made New Year’s Resolutions to only give up on them by the end of January? I feel you, babes! Sticking to your New Year's goals can be super challenging — it takes active effort and consistency to turn your resolutions into reality!
With 2021 officially over and done, New Year’s is the PERFECT time for a fresh new start. So, what should you do differently this year to actually see changes? Here are my biggest tips for kicking off 2022 so you can achieve your resolutions!
1. Set realistic goals
Babes, transformations don’t happen overnight. Creating a resolution that is super drastic and unrealistic is only going to set you up for disappointment and cause you to give up.
So what should you do? Set a realistic goal for yourself. Goals should be specific and measurable so you can actually have a way of tracking progress. When it comes to physique changes, slow and steady always wins the race!
Let’s say your goal is to drop body fat. Simply just having that broad goal isn’t enough. You should set a specific ‘micro’ goal, such as losing 5kg in 8 weeks, to make your broader goal more achievable. This will give you something to specifically work towards and will keep you motivated along your journey!
2. Reassess your current lifestyle and diet
As much as we want our resolutions to come true, simply wishing for it isn’t enough — you will have to make some changes!
The first step is to reassess what your current diet is like. Where do you think you can improve? What do you think you can do differently to improve your eating? Reflect on those things and write it down, so you know where you can make changes.
Same goes with your lifestyle! Are you exercising regularly? Do you get a good amount of sleep? Your lifestyle has to be conducive to the goal you want to achieve in order for it to happen!
3. Turn your goals into actionable steps
This is where the magic really happens! You know what you want to achieve, you’ve figured out what areas of diet and lifestyle you need to improve — now you need to figure out how you are going to achieve it. How many times a week will you exercise? How many calories will you be eating?
This is often the step that is hardest and often, people give up because it’s simply too complicated to figure out what exercises you need to do, and what to eat, all on your own. Babes, that's where LSF comes in!

4. Stay accountable and keep motivated
Staying accountable and keeping motivated is KEY to both achieving AND maintaining all your hard-earned results! One of the easiest ways to stay accountable is by surrounding yourself with a community of people that are there to support and motivate you throughout your journey. That could be friends, family, coworkers — tell those around you what you are trying to achieve and let them lift you up when you need it!
