Resolve to meet your exercise goals

(HealthDay News) -- Don't sit idly by as your New Year's resolutions about exercise slip away with the passing months.

Try these suggestions for how you can meet your fitness goals all year long:

  • Make sure your goals are attainable and realistic, and that you include short-term goals.
  • Resolve to make a series of small changes that add up to big results.
  • Be specific. Instead of resolving to exercise more, plan on a particular activity on certain days of the week.
  • Make sure your goals are based on your personal, strong desire to make changes for yourself, not someone else.
  • Get creative in finding ways to exercise, such as walking more during errands.
  • Plan for obstacles, and remember to reward yourself when you succeed.
  • Create a support system to help you stick with your goals.
