20 Things to Protect your New Year’s Fitness Resolution From

As the new year draws near, many people will make resolutions, and for some, becoming healthy or getting into shape will be one of them. Those are the ones who may have been considering doing it in the past and may have even given it a shot but failed.


Ben Harrison, the CEO, and blogger for Beyond Shakers, has put up a list of twenty things that everyone should avoid in order to stay in shape and keep their fitness resolution this year. No matter how challenging the goal of fitness could be, everyone can achieve it by avoiding the following mistakes.


  • Fear to Lose 

Believe is the first and foremost thing that you’ll be needing along with you to start. Having the firm belief that you can do it, will help you conquer your fear to lose. Overcoming the fear of failure is key to winning this race.  

  • Lacking Self-Appreciation 

Rewarding yourself will help you psychologically in this journey. When you celebrate little achievements, it creates positive energy in the body, and as a result, you get better and on-time results.  

  • Putting Nutrition Aside
    Nutrition is as important as a workout when it comes to fitness, never doubt that. If you put food and its importance aside then all of your efforts won’t bring satisfactory results and you have to protect your resolution from this.  
  • Wrong Company
    People when asked about what has broken their previous resolution, they replied that they had to hang out or go out with their friends sometimes for the party and it made them impossible to stick to the routine of gym. You guys need to get into the fitness community it will definitely gonna help you with your resolution. 
  • Not Tracking Performance

The accomplishments of achieving milestones and appreciating yourself on that come from tracking your performance on a weekly and daily basis. This can be a great motivator, as it can give you a sense of accomplishment when you see your progress. 

  • Ignoring Deadlines

The importance of keeping deadlines for fitness cannot be overstated. Deadlines help to keep you accountable and motivated to achieve your fitness goals. They provide a sense of urgency and can help you stay on track with your fitness plan. Without deadlines, it is easy to procrastinate and put off your workouts, which can lead to a lack of progress and ultimately, a lack of success.

  • Skipping Cheat Meal

A cheat meal is a planned deviation from an individual’s normal healthy diet, typically allowing for the consumption of a desired but otherwise unhealthy food. While some may view cheat meals as an unnecessary indulgence, they can actually play an important role in a healthy and sustainable fitness plan.

  • Skipping the Rest
    Rest is an essential part of any fitness plan, as it allows the body to recover and repair itself after physical activity. Without adequate rest, the body cannot properly rebuild and strengthen its muscles, which can lead to fatigue, injury, and a lack of progress.
  • Losing Patience
    Losing patience can have a detrimental impact on fitness resolution. It can lead to a lack of progress, impulsive decision-making, and negative emotions, which can all interfere with the ability to achieve fitness goals. It is important to maintain patience and a positive mindset in order to stay motivated and achieve success in fitness.
  • Losing Consistency
    Losing consistency can lead to a lack of progress. In order to see results from a fitness plan, it is important to consistently engage in physical activity and follow a healthy diet. When individuals are inconsistent with their workouts and nutrition, they may not see the progress they desire, which can lead to frustration and a lack of motivation.
  • Not Challenging Yourself

One way to challenge yourself to improve fitness is to set goals and consistently work towards them. You could sign up for a fitness class or a race, or try a new sport or exercise routine. By setting goals and pushing yourself to try new things, you can continue to improve your fitness and reach new levels of health and wellness.

  • Stressing With Details

Stress can have a significant impact on fitness. When we are stressed, our bodies release hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline, which can have a negative effect on our physical health. These hormones can raise our heart rate and blood pressure, and can also interfere with our body’s ability to metabolize fat and sugar. As a result, stress can lead to weight gain, an increased risk of heart disease, and other health problems.

  • Making Things Complicated

Complicating things related to fitness can result in weight gain in several ways. When we make things overly complicated, we may be less likely to stick to a regular exercise routine. For example, if we create an overly ambitious workout plan that is difficult to follow, we may quickly become frustrated and give up.

  • Not Accepting Help of Others
    Accepting help from others can be beneficial for fitness in many ways. First, receiving support from friends, family, or a fitness coach can provide motivation and encouragement to stick to an exercise routine or healthy eating plan. It can also foster a sense of community and connection, which can have a positive impact on mental health and well-being.
  • Not Encouraging your Partner along

A fitness buddy can provide valuable support and encouragement and can help to push you to challenge yourself and try new things. They can also provide a sense of competition, which can be a helpful motivator for some people.

Low self-confidence can lead to negative thinking and self-doubt, which can be detrimental to our mental health and overall well-being. These negative thoughts can make it more difficult to stick to a healthy lifestyle and may lead to unhealthy behaviors, such as skipping workouts or turning to unhealthy coping mechanisms like alcohol or drugs.

  • Losing Focus
    When we lose focus, we may be less likely to stick to a regular exercise routine and may be more likely to skip workouts or give up on our fitness goals. This can make it difficult to make progress and improve our fitness levels. Additionally, losing focus can also affect our diets and make it more difficult to make healthy food choices. For example, if we are not paying attention to what we are eating, we may be more likely to indulge in unhealthy foods or overeat.
  • Unrealistic Approach
    An unrealistic approach can lead to unhealthy behaviors, such as overexercising or following a restrictive diet. These behaviors can be harmful to our physical and mental health and can make it difficult to maintain a healthy weight and stick to resolution. 
  • Unclear Goals
    Having unclear goals will not help in achieving fitness goals because it is difficult to know what to strive for and how to measure progress. Without specific goals, knowing what steps to take to reach them can be difficult. For example, if your goal is to “get fit,” it is not clear what that means or how to achieve it. On the other hand, if your goal is to “run a 5k race in under 30 minutes,” it is clear what you need to do to achieve it and how to measure your progress. Clear goals provide direction and focus, which are essential for achieving success in any endeavor, including fitness.
  • Quitting
    Quitting a fitness routine can lead to health problems in several ways. When we stop exercising, our physical fitness levels can decline, and we may lose the progress we have made. This can increase our risks of chronic diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes, and can also lead to weight gain. Regular exercise has been shown to improve mood and reduce stress, so quitting a fitness routine can lead to feelings of low mood and increased stress. Avoid going back on your fitness resolution. 🙂
