The holidays have come and gone, and now it’s time to turn over a new leaf for 2016! The New Year is an amazing chance for renewal and a wonderful time to focus on what is important to you. Make 2016 your best year yet, by setting goals for yourself and holding yourself accountable to achieving them!
No surprise here that the biggest New Year’s resolution is always to achieve a healthy weight. You are on the right track by starting your SlimGenics Program with sound nutrition advice, a personalized approach and one-on-one support that will help you reach your goal.
Be More Confident
Be bold in 2016! Losing weight can help you gain confidence, but you have to actively choose to take chances and step out of your comfort zone. Stand up straighter and hold your head high! Trust us, it’s worth it.
How much have you saved not eating junk food? Just because you pick up food from a drive-thru doesn’t mean it’s cheap. Ten dollars here, fifteen dollars there, and pretty soon your wallet is looking thin while your waistline is expanding. Remember, when you buy your own fresh and healthy food, you are saving 50% or more! Keep it up!
Ditch Bad Habits
Say goodbye to vices. Whether it’s smoking, drinking or doughnuts, it’s time to kick bad habits in your life that are bringing you down to the curb. This also applies to toxic relationships and negative self-talk. When you catch yourself doing something that doesn’t align with your goals, tell yourself you are better than that and move on!
While exercise is not required on the SlimGenics Program, it is encouraged. The good news is any movement qualifies! Just 30 minutes of activity per day helps you meet the Physical Activity Guidelines standard and can prolong good health, helping you live a longer healthier life. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Take the long way to the bathroom at work. It all adds up to more energy and less inches on your waistline.
Do Something You Love
Life is too short not to love it! Take stock of the previous year and think about what you’d like to change for 2016. Whether that’s something as big as switching careers or something as small as learning a new skill, be sure to add more of what you love to your new year.
Make a plan to put aside the money you would normally spend on going out to eat, and soon you will have built up a nice little nest egg or extra funds to pay off debts.
Whether it’s being comfortable on a plane (read these tips to avoid jet lag) or the tempting food in the airport, traveling can be a challenge. With the SlimGenics Program, you will have the tools to stay on track at the airport and beyond, so you can travel with ease. NOTE: Set aside a special savings account just for travel, so you can start planning your next trip!
Love Your Wardrobe
Whether it’s your jeans, little black dress or bathing suit, you have a specific goal and we can get you there! Hang your item of clothing outside your closet for visual motivation to lose weight.
Did you know that a percentage of all SlimGenics sales goes to benefit The SlimGenics Foundation, providing nutritional education, preventing childhood obesity and preventing childhood malnutrition? The next time you pick up your favorite Thermo-Snacks®, you can feel even better about your decision.
Use the Kitchen
Buying all that fresh food at the grocery store won’t do much for you if you can’t put it all together. Start with a freshly cleaned and organized space, and use our Foodie Flavor recipes to whip up delicious, on-plan treats and entrees!
Reconnect with Friends
Thanks to Facebook and other social media sites, it’s becoming easier than ever to stay in contact with friends and family. But don’t forget the importance of a phone call or handwritten note – getting stuck behind a computer screen can often create more distance than intended!
Learn Something New
Between Rosetta Stone, DIY tutorials and Podcasts, learning a new skill has made many New Year’s Resolution lists recently! Like any goal, break this up into small chunks, and eventually you’ll be fluent.
The first rule of finding love is to love yourself! By gaining confidence in yourself and your new body, you will not be afraid to show the world how special you are. Smile, be friendly and open your heart to the possibilities.
With your list of 2016 goals in hand, go forth and make the changes you need to achieve them. Remember that the little things make a big difference. Choosing to eat an apple instead of a candy bar, going to work with a positive attitude and making time to improve your health are just a few examples of small changes that can add up to your best year yet.
Happy New Year!
