    Tips for starting and maintaining a fitness program

    Let’s face it - if New Year resolutions actually worked, we wouldn’t be making the same ones year after year, and largely, we do. In fact, more than 40 percent of the population makes resolu- tions, and on a grand scale, the top 10 reso- lutions are the same from year to year, with two of them consistently involving exercise and getting fit.

    Perhaps the high fail- ure rate of resolutions, estimated at 97 percent, is not because the res- olution, itself, was un- reasonable, but because hardly anyone takes reso- lutions seriously enough to conceive a plan for real change.

    Here are some tips for creating an effective plan for a healthy lifestyle change: • Determine your

    health/fitness goal. Call it a resolution if you wish, but don’t limit yourself to trying it only on Jan. 1, and don’t make it a goal that’s frankly just too boring to keep. A goal of losing 10 pounds is a lot less exciting than an alternative goal to get fit and have fun while doing it. • Make your plan of reaching your goal a

    simple one. Start with a list of fun activities that keep you headed in the right direction. Also, don’t list activities that are nearly im- possible to do or a huge drain on your time - they’re way too frustrating, and likely to leave you overwhelmed and uncommitted.

    A beginner’s goal of running one mile a day every day might be too daunting, but an alternative goal of walking for 30 minutes a day after work with a friend allows added fun and social time. • Schedule the time. You want exercise

    to be a priority in your life, and you’re well aware of the benefits, but you’re stretched way too thin as it is and are having a hard time fitting it in. Despite any resolution you make, it’s unlikely that any of those

    other priorities in your life will suddenly go away. The answer? Scheduling. A plan is simply your list of activities (from above) paired with your calendar. When making your plan, seriously consider when you’re going to fit in your activities. Review your
