Get Healthy on GOOD DAY: New Year's Resolutions

The start of a new year means a fresh start and that can mean a new lifestyle of eating or hitting the gym, but remember everyone is human and sometimes fails. Just because you fall of the wagon doesn't mean you can't get right back on. If you over indulge one day or miss a workout, don't give up.
"They feel terrible afterwards and then they almost have this mentality like well I've already messed up I might as well keep living my old habits and keep doing the same old thing and that's not what you need to do," said Kris Morrill, fitness coach.
Instead of setting huge goals for the entire year which can be harder to keep, set smaller goals for each month or even each week that you can mark off as you attain them.
And if you didn't start your resolution January first, that's ok! There's no time like the present. You don't have to wait until next year or even next week.
"The main thing with new year's resolutions is not necessarily setting a goal that you can achieve so to speak, its setting things right now that you are going to change," said Morrill.
