Reset For the New Year
We aren’t big fans of the new year's resolution mindset as people tend to set ambitious short-term goals and burn out quickly. Making small changes and staying consistent over time is what leads to big changes. However, the new year is an excellent opportunity to reset mentally and reevaluate if you have the right tools in place to be successful. Here are a few things to consider resetting this year.
Reset Your Goals
What is your goal? Set an overall goal as well as smaller goals that will help you achieve your overall goal. For example, if your goal is to get off certain medications or lose a certain amount of weight, perhaps getting in 5,000 steps 6 days a week will help you support your overall goal. You can’t achieve a goal if you haven’t set one first, right?
Reset Your Habits
Your habits will make or break your success! Consider your habits for exercise, water intake, protein intake, and sleep. Are there any habits that you need to break?
Exercise: Get 30-45 of physical activity in 3-5 days per week
Water: Drink at least 64 ounces of water per day
Protein: Consume 60-80 grams of protein per day
Sleep: Set a goal of getting at least 7 hours of sleep per night
Reset Your Kitchen
The new year is a great time to clean out your kitchen. Your kitchen is the key to success! Toss the processed junk and replace it with staples that will keep you on track and feeling good.

Reset The Tools in Your Toolbox
If there is an area you are struggling in there may be a tool that can help support you. Here are a few simple tools that are very effective:
Activity tracker: An activity tracker is an excellent tool to help you set a goal and keep yourself accountable. 10,000 steps per day is the goal.
Food scale: Even if you’ve used a food scale in the past, it’s a good tool to revisit regularly. Resetting your portion sizes can help you get back on track.
Food journal: It can be easy to lose track of what you’ve eaten throughout the day; especially if you are on the go. Keeping a record of what you are eating and how much can help you better understand your eating habits and pinpoint what you need to change. You can keep track in a paper journal, or through an app on your phone.
