A Sticky Situation: 5 Fool-Proof Tips for Sticking to Your Health Resolutions in 2015

Just like that... another year is behind us, and a new one lies ahead. What does this insinuate, of course? Making changes!

For some of us, implementing changes in the New Year is something we dread, but know we have to do. For others (like most of us at Body SymmetryMD ) it's a great time to get back on track with our health, accomplish some new fitness goals and ultimately, achieve a NEW YOU in the NEW YEAR.

Here are 5 fool-proof tips from our Body SymmetryMD wellness squad to help YOU stick to your health resolution(s) in 2015:

1. Take out the trash.
By taking out the trash, we mean get rid of all the junk food in your house. Any chips, popcorn, candy, baked goods, etc. left over from the holidays should go out with the dirty diapers and Christmas wrapper shreds to ensure you aren't tempted to splurge during your new commitment to better health.

2. Get movin' already.
So you've been paying monthly dues for your gym membership...and you haven't seen the inside of that health club since before Halloween. It's time to get back on the treadmill (or Elliptical machine, whichever) for at least 20 minutes a day, 3 times a week (if possible). You didn't gain that holiday weight overnight, so it will take some time to come off... but baby steps towards gettin' back into the gym are definitely key!

3. Burn some extra calories.
If you're one of the millions of Americans who SIT in traffic, SIT at a desk all day, SIT in traffic to get home, only to SIT and relax on the couch after your hard day on the grind, it's time to start incorporating some mini workouts into your day in order to burn some extra calories. Work in a big office complex? Park in the spot furthest from your work entrance and walk the extra few hundred steps. Is your place of employment more than one-story high? Take the stairs to get from the parking deck to your office and forego the elevator whenever you need to get from one floor to another. On the phone a lot? Try walking while you talk to burn calories while getting the job done!

4. Just say, "No."
Admit it. Most of us took a few too many liberties with the homemade pumpkin loaf in the break room and that gourmet cheesecake delivery from Auntie Em and those cute little iced gingerbread cookies we made with the kids (it would be rude not to help eat them, right?!). Well now that the year is behind us, there are no excuses... Just say "NO" to any of those calorie-laden temptations for the sake of not feeling guilty, improving your health and most importantly, for the journey towards a new you!

5. Invest in wellness programs & services that work.
Whether you're in search of a medically supervised weight loss program, affordable nutritional guidance with ongoing support or seeking the newest, non-invasive body contouring techniques available today... wellness facilities like Body SymmetryMD are designed to cater to your individual needs. We're equipped with all the right tools and medical staff to ensure you stick to your health resolutions throughout the start of the New Year as well as your entire 2015. For information about our weight management services & programs click here to visit our official Body SymmetryMD web site NOW.
