Realistic Exercise and Diet Resolutions for 2014
Here are some handy tips for keeping your diet and exercise New Years Resolutions!
#1. Make a schedule, write it down, place it somewhere you will see daily and stick to it.
#2. Make a list of realistic resolutions like the following:
Go for a walk every day for 1 hour.
Stop buying sugary drinks.
Take the dog for a walk twice per day.
Clean the house every Sunday morning. (Cleaning counts as exercise.)
Go to the swimming pool every Saturday as a family.
#3. The more resolutions you make, and the more realistic those resolutions are, the more likely you are to make real changes in your life. For that reason it is best to make a long list of resolutions and put the most effort into the most realistic resolutions first.
#4. Read lists of New Years Resolutions and see which ones you can do that would be realistic.

#5. Recognize how to determine which resolutions are unrealistic. eg. "I will exercise for an hour every day." is unrealistic because you aren't scheduling a specific time and you will probably forget easily, get distracted easily and then not do it.
#6. Remember there is no time like the present. Start exercising today. Right now is even better.
#7. Reward yourself with healthy food that is delicious.
#9. Don't let your age effect your choices of which sports you want to do. Let your physical health condition be the deciding factor. So if your doctor says you should not be doing hard cardio activities like marathon running then that should be the deciding factor. Don't make your age an excuse. Consult your doctor instead and find a realistic sport you can physically do.
#10. Pick activities and alternative activities you can do regardless of the weather. For example that way if you cannot do archery because it is raining outside then you can spend the day at an indoor tennis court and practice your backswing instead.
#11. Involve your loved ones. Take the husband, the wife, the kids, your siblings, your parents with you to do physical activities. If other people are part of your exercise schedule then they will remind you "Hey it is Sunday, time to go swimming!" A weekly family trip to the swimming pool or similar place will be fun and exercise for the whole family.
#12. Hire a personal trainer (like me!) to help get you started on the right foot.
DON'T MAKE RESOLUTIONS BASED ON HOPES AND DREAMS, MAKE CHANGES THAT ARE REALISTIC.
