Wellness goes beyond weight loss

Happy New Year! This is the year I want you to set meaningful resolutions that you are going to keep. If you looked down at your belly during your toast into the New Year and thought I really need to lose a few pounds- that is a start. The funny thing about resolutions is that I think deep down we know if we plan to at least try to keep them or we set them knowing that they will fade away without too much bother within a few weeks.
This is the first posting of daily blog that will coach you through setting and achieving wellness resolutions. I own a company called Vintage Fitness which specializes in energizing the lives of people over 50 with physical activity. I have seen hundreds of clients set and both achieve and miserably fail to achieve their fitness goals. I know what people do right and how goals can become de-railed before they gain momentum.
The first step is setting the right goal. You need to go beyond how your body looks and think about what your body can do for you. We are going to use the six dimensions of wellness set out by the international council on active aging to create meaningful resolutions that you will be motivated to work hard to keep.

This is day one so let’s keep it simple to start. Your current resolution may read something like this “I want to lose 10 pounds in the next six months”. Today I want you to drill down a bit—why do you want to lose the weight? What could you do 10 pounds lighter that you can’t do now?
