Can you believe 2017 is soon to be a memory? With that being said, many of us are striving for those New Year’s resolution weight loss goals. Although the journey can be long, there are a few things you can do to kick-start your new routine!

To stay on track with your weight loss resolution, consider the helpful tips we have listed below:

  1. Open a gym membership

Sometimes, a change of scenery can be just what you need. When it comes to exercising, routines can become monotonous very quickly. For this reason, enrolling in a new gym can help you get back on track and stay more focused. Also, if you hit a plateau, try changing up your routine. You’ve probably heard the phrase, ‘trick your muscles’; well this actually works. It’s not about how much weight you can lift, but consistency and changing up the routine to form a well-rounded fitness program.

  1. Take a Yoga Class at a Different Studio Each Week

Most yoga studios offer complimentary classes to new members. Instead of signing a month contract at one studio, consider trying one class at a different studio every week. This can vary the length of your workouts, the intensity of your workouts, and the types of instructors you meet.

  1. Find a Workout Buddy

Working out with a friend who has similar goals can be beneficial for you and the other person. The two of you can push each other, encourage each other, and even create a healthy competition that can help keep you both on track!

  1. Make Small Goals Along the Way

Your overall goal may take time to reach. That is why it is important to stay encouraged along the way. To make the overall goal seem more achievable, make smaller goals along the way. For example, you can make a 4-week goal, an 8-week goal, and a final 12-week goal.

  1. Reward Yourself with Calorie-free Treats

Many people will reward themselves with a calorie-dense meal at the end of a productive, healthy week. However, these high-calorie treats can be counterproductive when trying to reach a weight loss goal. Instead, reward yourself with calorie-free treats such as pedicures, manicures, massages, or tickets to a basketball game.
