Happy and joyous New Year, everyone! We are through the holidays and here we are already beginning a new year! While many people are focused on undoing the damage from the last few months of holidays, it is also a time to reinvent yourself, or recommit yourself to your healthy routines. I, personally, always go through a little period of hibernation during the holidays, and then, BAM! - School starts again, I am up early once again making breakfast for the family at 7AM, we are all back into our routines, and I have no more excuses for not getting to my morning yoga practice at the studio (when I am feeling lazy or overwhelmed I practice at home- which is still something, but much better focus if I can get myself out of the house early and to the studio).

So how do we maintain this momentum? Once we lose those 5-7 lbs (on average) that we gained over the holiday, how do we make sure we carry it through to the rest of the year? How do we make those health resolutions stick? One friend shared something that she borrowed from the Dalai Llama - decide if something will give you momentary pleasure or ongoing happiness. An example : Sleeping late in the morning and skipping exercise might give you extra rest and momentary pleasure, and maybe on that particular morning you actually needed extra sleep, but as a chronic habitual pattern, it might not serve you in the long run to create happiness and well-being. So keeping the big picture in mind can help you choose more wisely for yourself.

Another goal is to actually thrive during the winter-time. This is often the time when people get more colds, flus and other illnesses, and some people feel more depressed during the winter. Consistently choosing healthy lifestyle patterns can also make wintertime actually enjoyable! And it can help to stave off the depression and weight gain that also can occur over the winter. Stay warm and active, and eat well!

 How to Stay Motivated When Losing Weight

Photo Credit diet image by Wojciech Gajda from Fotolia.com Your motivation likely is at its peak at the beginning of your weight loss program. The excitement and anticipation of a leaner you boosts your willpower to resist the temptation to cheat. You may lose your motivation midway through your program. This is the point where most people fail and end up right back where they began--and heavier to boot. Learn how to stay motivated so you can reach your goal. Provide yourself with an incentive once you achieve your fitness goal. Celebrate with a new wardrobe or hairstyle. From LiveStrong
