Dec. 17, 2011 - PRLog -- It's time of the year again when people celebrate the holidays and welcome the New Year. Making New Year's resolutions has become a dreaded annual wish that many people don't make anymore since they can't keep it and stick to it.

"If your old-and-never-worked New Year's resolution are like "I resolve to start exercising 5 to 7 times a week, 30 to 60 minutes each time; and if you haven't exercised regularly for the last 3 months, this resolution is bound to fail and you're doomed!" says Carey Yang, a certified personal trainer and celebrity fitness trainer.

Yang is the owner and master personal trainer at Beyond Fitness Solutions, LLC -- a leading in-home personal training and weight-loss management company serving and helping clients in Morris County, Sussex County, Passaic County, Essex County and Somerset County areas in New Jersey.

Improving health and fitness is on the top 3 New Year's Resolutions for most people. Health and fitness is the case where haste makes waste, as the old saying goes. Many people start the new year with good momentum, then lose steam by the end of January. By February, most people already quit or visit the gym much less often.

One study from the University of Scranton showed that a quarter of people who resolve to lose weight and change their eating habits on January 1st will go back to their old ways within a week.

The following list shows how many of these resolutions are maintained as time goes on:

- Past the first week: 75%
- Past two weeks: 71%
- Past one month: 64%
- After 6 months: 46%

One of the biggest mistakes when people make their New Year's Resolutions is that they want to change and do too many things, too soon and at the same time. Sooner than later they get so overwhelmed that they simply cannot keep up with and just quit.

The key is to dream big bu start small, baby steps. Make the smaller goals challenging yet still easily and realistically achievable. "You'll feel confident and good about yourself when you achieve the small steps," Yang says. "It gives you the momentum, reinforcement and sense of accomplishment to move to the next step, a step closer to your bigger goal."

Yang adds, pick no more than two things to work on in each of the following areas. When you stick to it for one month, then add another one or two thing in the following month. If you're really conscious about your actions, you'll achieve 24 things in one area by the year end. That could be your bigger goal.
