Out with the Old, In with the New

by Blayne Soriano, Level 2 CrossFit Coach and CrossFit Kids Coach

The statement of almost every New Year’s beginning: New Year, New You. I like to think of it, though, as another year wiser, experienced and ready to be in with the new habits and out with the old bad habits.

The key to fitness and health is consistency — and then consistently pushing further. Creating a healthy lifestyle change to better one’s self and not just a quick fix, yo-yo-ing fad or popular diet.

Think of the good things you continued, created or became in 2021, keep them, expand them, and then get rid of the bad things you picked up or haven’t dropped yet.

Here are some examples:

  • If you consistently work out 3 times a week, pick up another day!
  • If you noticed you were eating too often, try and limit it.
  • If you know you aren’t eating enough vegetables, or drinking enough water, change it!

Instead of New Year’s resolutions and starting something and not sticking to it, think about adding something positive in or replacing something that can better yourself such as swapping screen time for hikes and being outdoors more.

Remember there is always something more we can do to improve our mind body and soul!
