A New Year's Fitness Plan That's Actually Doable

Victoria Hoff

Fact: On January 1, most Americans named weight loss as their number one New Year's resolution. Another fact: By the end of this week, roughly 25% of those people will give up on that goal. By February, that number rises to one third. Come June, it's more than 50%. 

Disheartened? Don't be. The point is that we put so much pressure on this time of year, creating lofty goals and tackling them at full force, only to burn out or become immediately disappointed when we don't see instantaneous results. But there is an effective approach to getting your body into gear without completely losing your mind (and intentions) along the way. It just requires a little patience—and maybe a little attitude adjustment. How about—gasp—actually enjoying the process? See how below.
