Don’t Make a New Year’s Resolution

This year I’m asking you NOT to make a New Year’s resolution. You read that correctly–DON’T make a resolution. They don’t work. Plain and simple. Take a look at the definition of resolution:

Definition of resolution

See the inherent problem? It’s vague, it’s ambiguous, and there’s nothing to sink your teeth into. It’s just a decision, not a plan of action.

More than 70% of people who make resolutions don’t keep them, and more than 40% never even start! Things don’t magically change on January 1st. You don’t suddenly become a different person, one who can stick to a diet or exercise program, if you never have in the past.

That’s why this year, we’re asking you to skip the resolution, and make a #REALsolution.

Follow this simple 4-step process to create a #REALsolution that will set you up for success all year long.

Step 1:
Set a clear, attainable goal. Think of exactly what you want to achieve, and be specific. Instead of,” I want to lose weight,” decide that, “I will lose 10 pounds by April 5.” Instead of “I want to eat clean,” decide that, “I will eat 7 servings of fruits and vegetables each day and I will try one new healthy recipe each week.”

Step 2:
Make a solid plan for achieving your goal. Choose a fitness program or nutrition plan to help you get there. Or, commit to using a program you already own and visit Beachbody’s YouTube channel for motivation and mini-workouts from Tony Horton and Autumn Calabrese.

Step 3:
Download this accountability contract. Sign it. Post it somewhere you will see it every day. Snap a photo of the contract and post it on Instagram. Make sure to tag #REALsolution and @beachbodyhq. We’ll pick 5 winners to win a program of your choice, one each week from December 26-February 1.

Step 4:
If you’re not already part of a Challenge Group, join our #REALsolution Challenge Group on Facebook where you can check in daily, get encouragement, and stay accountable.

When you’ve reached your goal, repeat this 4-step process again to continue to improve!

Here are examples of what your accountability contract might look like:

Is $4-$5 a day for 60 days worth achieving your New Years Resolution ?!

Wow I cannot believe it is already that time of the year again! This time last year so many women joined me in my Fitkini Challenge group and saw some incredible results!!! Today they are rocking their new bodies and new control over their health and fitness!!

Tonight I am opening up 10 Spots in my 4th Annual New Year’s Challenge Group! This group will begin January 5th! This year is your year to really lock in your New Years resolutions to get fit! Most Americans make a resolution that they will lose 10-50 LBS. They get about 3 weeks into the year, make some progress, and then fall into old habits! WHY?!?! THEY LACKED ACCOUNTABILITY and a sound game plan.

This isn’t about quick fixes, pills, wraps, starvation diets. This is about fitness, clean eating, and a lifestyle change.

Together we will complete the appropriate fitness program for you!! We will discuss your goals and figure that part out together.

You will follow a dialed in meal to keep you from being super hungry, and tired while burning body fat!

We will replace one meal a day with a super dense dose of nutrition.
You will pay $4-$5 a day for 30-60 days (replacing the cost of lunch btw).

I will be hosting this group with a select few of my personally sponsored coaches to help you achieve the results that you desire.

You will also work with a group of other women as equally motivated as you!!

Space is limited to 10 women so act now!
