A little over a month into the new year is a common breaking point when it comes to sticking with New Year’s Resolutions. The excitement of the new year is wearing off, the commitment to get to the gym is a little harder to keep, and eating healthy may be slipping as good tasting treats and bad habits once again become tempting. To help keep you motivated, KNCO touched base with an Olympic Champion and mother to see how she keeps her resolutions. Paul Haas spoke with 3-time Olympic Beach Volleyball champion, Kerri Walsh-Jennings and she admitted it isn’t easy.
In order to keep a resolution, Walsh says to make it personal and to work with other people.
Walsh says that nutrition is key for herself and her family to be successful.*
One strategy Walsh-Jennings uses is food substitutions. She admits the hardest part is finding tasty alternatives.
Walsh-Jennings reminds everyone that we have to make up our minds to stick with a new nutrition related resolution.
Wash says making the resolution personal, having support, and having positive alternatives to previous choices makes keeping resolutions easier.
