Looking to jumpstart your fitness routine this year? Find out how Samantha motivates herself to stick to her workout program and how she plans to stay consistent in 2019!
What is your New Year’s Resolution?
My New Years Resolution is to focus on myself and be consistent. Constantly remember that my journey is special and if I don’t honor the work I’ve put in I’ll never be able to appreciate where I’m going.
How were you able to stay healthy during the holidays?
The holidays can be stressful without the added stress of what my diet and exercise regimen are. That being said, I tried to stay as normal as possible. Indulging shouldn’t feel like it happens once a year. That’s when you go nuts at that one time. Instead, if you feel like the treats are just another sweet goody you can have if you want, you may actually turn it down. As far as moving, I tried my best to stay active. Simple as that. I did some core work and cardio here and there and will get back on track when I can.
What is your advice on treating yourself over the holidays?
Go for it, in moderation. I did! Know that your body doesn’t like the feeling of a ton of bad things inside of it and respect that.
What’s your advice for people looking to jumpstart their fitness/health routine in the new year?
My advice for the New Year New Me program is that it is a great source of motivation but make sure that you have a deeper purpose about your new found fitness journey. The more importance it carries beyond wanting to look good for a certain amount of time, the more likely you’ll be to stick to the new habits for life!
