NEW YEAR 2019 - A HEALTHY START
It's completely normal to eat differently during the holidays or on vacations. It's actually (mentally) healthy to disrupt routines and structured regimens - we are not robots! So, yes, the New Year is a perfect time to think about healthy living - what other way to invest on ourselves if not on our own health? Usually there are 2 cases:
f so, you should continue your healthy route and spice it up a bit with setting specific goals. Some examples can be: running a 1/2 marathon by the end of the year, eating a more diverse and nutritious breakfast; trying new healthy recipes, or finally trying that yoga class for a full month. These are small changes that can have huge (additional) benefits to your -already- healthy routine. Case #2: You don't have a healthy lifestyle. Well, now it's time to start having one. Now? What about later? Why do we always hear that all the gyms are full in January and empty by March??? Because we need to understand that LIFEstyle is indeed for LIFE. That fad diets (AKA ketogenic, etc) are short-termed (and possibly counterproductive) and that lifting weights at the gym might not be your thing. So, I would recommend seeking advice - not from your neighbor and not even from your best friend - but from people who have experience with guiding others into wellness and healthy lifestyle. It's worth hiring a coach that will condition your body so that, by the end of the year, you can run a 5k at ease. It's worth seeking a dietitian/nutritionist who can help you lose body fat without magic pills or fad diets but with realistic plans that you can actually do for the rest of your life, just like brushing your teeth, it's a matter of creating a healthy habit.
