Resolutions- What you need to know for success!

kb_resolution_imgThis morning I went to the gym, as I do most mornings before work, expecting to enter the chaos that typically follows the celebration of each New Year and the resolutions we so often feel inspired to make.

To my surprise the gym was a ghost town, even deserted by the regular crowd usually spotted at this time of morning.

So why is this happening? The answer is simple: people aren’t sticking to their resolutions! But that’s only to be expected when we arbitrarily throw up statements like “I’m going to lose weight” or “I’m going to eat healthier” and then don’t follow through with how we are going to get there. By not taking the proper steps for success we are setting ourselves up for failure.

The night Anthony and Zereen Mirabello each won the 90 Day BE YOUR BEST Weight Loss Challenge, Anthony wasn’t even at home to hear it happen live. When Zereen called and told him they had won, he asked, “What do you mean, ‘We won?’” not realizing that the challenge had one category for men and another for women.

“I didn’t think there was any way either of us would win, much less both of us!” he laughs.

It’s pretty fitting for the Mirabellos to have won on the same night because the healthy lifestyle they’ve developed, they’ve developed together. It started with Zereen when she started walking every day with her friend. They would motivate each other and talk about health and nutrition as they exercised.Read More
