Oh my goodness! Where did the year go?!
I can’t believe we’re at the end of the year, and getting ready for the new one.
And when it comes to the preparing,, what’s better than a new year resolution fitness plan, right?
Each January, people resolve to better themselves in some way, in order to start fresh and grab the year.
A new year is a new beginning and a great opportunity to start setting some goals for the next 12 months.
Because of that, I decided to give you 12 things to set for a change.
My idea is to start changing just one habit a month, and at the end of the next year you’ll meet a new you, that’s healthy, fit, sexy and confident!
Do you want that?!
If so, head on to my 12 month new year resolution plan and start right away.
THIS IS YOUR YEAR TO SPARKLE! You go girl!
January: Start a workout program
The very first thing you want to do is start working out.
Sign up for a gym membership, or even better invest in a workout equipment and start working out in the comfort of your home (ex: a set of resistance bends, some weights or weight plates and a bar).
The next thing is finding a workout program and start following it, and that’s why I’m here for.
Here’s my Breaking Fat workout program:
Start doing it at least 4 times a week, and you’ll look like a fitness model by the end of the year! :)
February: Cut out sugars and bad carbs
The next thing on the new year resolution menu is cleaning up your diet, which means cutting out sugars and bad carbs!
This can be a real challenge, but since you have a whole month to do it and since you have my Giving Up sugar technique, it couldn’t be any easier!
First you’ll learn about your worst enemy – sugar, then, you’ll learn how to avoid it, and at last you’ll start eating the right foods to finally get rid of it.
Here’s everything you’ll need for this month’s challenge:
Once you learn everything you need to know about your enemy, you’ll manage to kick it out of your life in no time!
March: Make breakfast a priority
March is for breakfast!
Do you often feel like you’re not hungry in the morning, but then you can’t stop eating later in the day?
Well, that’s the main reason why you should start eating a bigger portions of breakfast this month and make it a priority!
Actually, when you teach your body to have a big portion of high quality breakfast early in the morning, you’ll end up feeling full for the rest of the day.
This is actually the primary reason why breakfast is said to be the best time to eat for weight loss, so this month you’ll make sure to learn how to fill up on the right foods upon waking up, especially high in protein, good carbs and healthy fats.
You can start with homemade rye bread topped with avocado, eggs, sunflower or flax seeds and thin slices of cheese, and sometimes even bacon.
Here’re everything you need to know about arranging your meals through the day:
Breakfast should become your biggest calorie loaded meal and making sure to keep you full for 4-5 hours, making the other meals in the day smaller and cleaner.
April: Start running
This is the best month to include an outdoor activity, and what’s better that running, right?
Start running at least twice a week, of course in addition with your workout program and make it a habit.
If you’re new to running, here’s something that might help you:
May: Improve your cooking
The most important thing when it comes to healthy food is how you’re cooking the food.
So this month’s new year resolution goal is to work on improving few cooking habits:
- Bake instead of frying
- Start using healthier oils – avoid sunflower seeds oil or palm oil, and use coconut oil, grape seeds oil, olive oil or flax seeds oil instead.
- Use healthier salt – kick out the table salt out of the table, and start using Himalayan salt instead, it’s much healthier.
Here’re some other cooking habits you can work on:
June: Start doing a yoga routine
Yoga is an art that you have to include in your everyday life, if you’re willing to change yourself into a new you.
You don’t have to go to yoga classes, you just find yourself a yoga routine and do it at least twice a week.
Yoga does amazing things to both your body and mind, and including it as a part of your routine will benefit you so well.

July: Start Drinking Protein Shake
Proteins are good for your body, especially when you exercise daily – they’re really important.
And sometimes, the protein that we get from the food we eat is not enough and we need additional fuel up in order to keep up the progress.
So make July your protein month, and start drinking a protein shake.
Here’s my guide to protein, and a list with 25 protein powder options for women.
August: Learn to read food labels
You have no idea how important food labels are!
Knowing and understanding what you really intake in your body is a knowledge that will allow you to make better health choices.
Food labels will tell you what ingredients or additives are in the food you’re about to eat and in what number, they will give you nutritional information about the food’s fat sugar and protein content.
This will help you avoid low fat foods or dietary and healthy products that you thought are healthy, but actually turned out to be loaded with sugars, additives and other sweeteners that are probably worse than sugar.
This great skill is easier to acquire than it sounds and it takes just a couple of weeks of label reading to master it, so make August count, by learning how to do it!
September: Run a marathon
You’re running twice a week for 5 months now, so it’s finally time to motivate yourself by smashing a goal – RUN A MARATHON!
September is a month that is full of marathons all over the world, so sign up for one of them and try out yourself.
Here’s a link to a list of this year’s September marathons Mapshot: September Marathons, so pick out one and start preparing.

October: Start hiking
October is the perfect month to start hiking – it’s not to hot and it’s not to cold.
Hiking is one of the best ways to keep fit, stay in shape, get your cardio done and lose a few inches, while enjoying a great day in nature.
It’s a different kind of fitness, that includes a whole lot of muscles that are set aside with your everyday workout plan.
So, make sure to fall in love with hiking, this month, and start doing it once a week.

November: Learn to prep your meals
It’s really hard to eat healthy when you have a busy schedule, especially when you’re not home for lunch, and you have to eat outside.
Well, this would be so much easier, if you start prepping your meals, and that’s why I dedicated this whole month for food prepping.
Once you start meal prepping, you’ll start getting meal ideas, start learning different kinds of recipes, and making sure you don’t leave the house without a planed meal.
In addition to this, here’s my 7 Days Of Healthy Meal Prep Ideas – Ready To Eat Meals and Protein On The Go Recipes.
