Healthy New Years Resolutions : The Key to Success


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Withings, part of Nokia. All opinions are 100% mine.

The tree has come down, the horns have been blown and we are well into the new year. For many of us, this means that we are now trying to focus on our resolutions. Every year, my resolution seems to be focused on the same thing… health. Whether it’s losing weight, working on a fitness goal, or even just working on a certain aspect of my health, making a resolution to do these things always seems to turn out badly. 

Why is this? Are we focusing on the wrong things? Making unrealistic goals for ourselves and ultimately setting up for failure? Maybe we aren’t using the right tools to help us achieve those goals?

This year, I decided to set myself up for success and wanted to share my resolutions with you. 

Healthy New Years Resolutions : The Key to Success - Withings Body Cardio Scale

Focusing on the scale, a number, can be discouraging. You jump into the gym, workout hard core and eat right. After a week of this, you step on the scale and see no changes at all. Big fat bummer, right? Then what happens, you stop going to the gym, you go back to your eating ways and say all well. 

So, how about taking a deeper look into your health goals. After being on my own journey for several years, I’ve learned to look beyond the number on your scale. By tracking your body fat, you can get a deeper look into what is going on with your body and your health. For example, last year, I virtually stayed at the same weight. I went to the gym every day, lifted weights, did cardio and did everything that should have made the number on my scale drop. If I hadn’t tracked my body fat, my journey would have stopped and I would have been discouraged. 

Let me show you this and please be gentle… This is 183 lbs. In both pictures.

I still have a lot to go… this is why my health is once again, a New Year’s resolution and will continue to be a long term goal. My focus this year is to continue working on body fat loss and my cardio vascular health. To do this, I’m using the Body Cardio scale.

The Body Cardio scale is not only the thinnest scale on the market, it’s also the most advanced. With a simple step onto the scale, I can get a full body composition and it will sync my results to the Health Mate App.

    Some people do not realize muscle weighs more then fat. It is so important to look at your BMI and measurements when getting fit. Reply
