New Year, New You in 3 Simple Steps

Written By: B. Brown

As New Year’s Day approaches, people everywhere are excitedly preparing celebrations and pondering resolutions. Indeed, the New Year is significant, as it is the only holiday that beckons us all to reflect and renew! Of course, not everyone buys into into the hype. And despite New Year’s traditions dating back centuries, it is easy to find yourself jaded at the thought of New Year's Resolutions. After all, more than half of all resolutions fail within the first month. This is especially true when it comes to resolutions focused on weight loss and fitness. But that doesn’t mean you have to fall prey to old habits. This New Year is your chance to take charge of your life. Make your New Year resolutions count this year by following these 3 simple steps!

Step 1: Celebrate Whats Right About You!

One of the reason’s resolutions fail is they require a change of behavior in order to be accomplished. And changing behavior requires far more than just a resolve to do something different. Modern Neuroscience has shown behaviors are stored in the brain’s neural pathways. When we attempt to change our behavior, the stored memory creates a sort of default setting as an act of protection. Want success with your New Year's Resolutions? Instead of writing a list of what you want to change about yourself, reflect on your successes and right down your strengths and assets.

Step 2: Create a Vision

Have you ever set a goal, mapping it out using the SMART format. Specific, Measurable, Realistic, and Timely. It’s an excellent tool for creating concrete goals. Yet, so many people find just as much failure in with SMART goals as they do New Years Resolutions. The good news is, SMART goals are still an effective method for mapping out a goal. But what is a goal without a vision?  Using your list of strengths and assets, reflect on where you are now. Honestly ask yourself where you want to be this same time next year and write it out. Next, challenge those programmed neural pathways and write out how your current strengths and assets will serve you in reaching your vision.

Step 3: The Power in Numbers

Many in society believe true success and happiness are achieved by will power and individual accomplishment. The truth is, nothing could be further from the truth. You can find true success and happiness through the support of community and the Rule of 3!  What is the Rule of 3? Simply put, write out 3 realistic resolutions. If weight loss is your goal, instead of writing out, ‘Lose weight’, write out something specific that matches your vision. For example, ‘Exchange 3 eating habits with 3 healthier choices'. Instead of 'Get in shape', 'workout for onw hour 3 times a week’. Now, choose 3 friends that have the same goal and keep each other accountable. Review your progress in 3 months, and then challenge yourself using these same 3 steps!

Get a headstart on your New Year goals this year with A Better Weigh Lifestyles! Together, we can help map out a meal plan that matches your vision with support, convenience, and affordability!

4 simple tips to keep you healthy over the holiday


Written By: B. Brown

The Holiday Season is in full swing with Christmas only days away. And as the day draws closer, the focus of the daily planning is almost entirely devoted to ensuring the perfect Christmas morning. As if this wasn’t all consuming enough, there are gifts to be delivered, family and friend gatherings, and traffic galore! Healthy eating and fitness can feel like an impossible feat, leaving many defenseless against the wide array of delicious baked goods and home cooked feasts.

But wait! Have no fear! Staying healthy is actually more simple than you think with these 4 simple tips to keep you healthy over the holiday.

#1  Eat Before You Head Out

Many of us are constantly on the go this time of year. It can seem like a time saver to put off eating and just wait until your next meal. Some people justify this decision because they think they are going to eat healthy when they do finally eat. Chances are, the stress of traffic and extra stimuli will have you feeling hungry sooner than you might expect. With limited fuel left in your body,  you more vulnerable to an energy crash. Whether you wait and eat a healthier meal later or not, you are subjecting your body through a metabolic rollercoaster. A few days of this can make it challenging to recalibrate. One great way to better manage this is to amp your Meal Planning up. A Better Weigh Lifestyles makes this option convenient, and affordable. Especially compared to the fast food many resort to this time of year.

#2  Adapt Your Workouts

With the constant strain on everyone's schedules this time of year, it can be challenging to keep up anything that resembles a normal fitness routine. But that doesn’t mean you have to stop moving. This is a perfect time of year to try new things or just use what you have to substitute and adapt your workout. Sure it may not be the ideal workout. But a body in motion stays in motion. By keeping a routine of active and intentional movement, it won’t be difficult to get back to your regular workout routine once the holiday has passed. Plus, you may find some new ideas to incorporate into your fitness plan, thus giving you an edge on those New Years goals! Try one simple active challenge wherever you go! Here are just a few adaptable workouts you can try right away.

  • Park farther from the Building when Shopping

  • Challenge your family/friends to a plank challenge

  • Take the stairs over an escalator or elevator

  • Take a Holiday walk to see the neighborhood lights


#3 Portion Control & Mindful Eating

One of the greatest things about learning to eat right and live a healthy lifestyle is understanding you don’t have to deprive yourself! The trick you need to remember this holiday season is to stay mindful while you are indulging and control your portions. Try drinking a full 8oz glass of water before eating a meal or a handful of treats. Sometimes dehydration can send a signal that our brain misinterprets as hunger. Staying hydrated is a great practice to boost mindful eating and help keep those portions small.

#4 Reflection Time

Last but not least, be sure to set aside time each day to reflect, even if it’s only 5 min. Getting caught up in the magic of Christmas often takes over our free time, limiting the time available to stop and reflect on what really matters in life. Yet, the health benefits of self-reflection and quiet time cannot be ignored. Additionally, this habit is just as critical to maintaining a healthy lifestyle as nutrition and fitness.


Be kind to yourself and ENJOY this time with family and friends. You got this!

Have a Happy Holiday!
