Fitness is always on the top of many New Year’s Resolution lists.  In order to keep my fitness goals I started planning out my fitness programs for the year (See my 2016 Plan).  I don’t really enjoy working out so having a program to follow helps me stay on track and stay motivated.  Also, I work out first thing in the morning to make sure I get it done.  As a non-morning person this mean my brain is not fully functioning so not having to think about what I’m going to do is a plus.  I literally roll out of bed, put on work out clothes, brush my teeth, pull my hair up in a messy pony tail, grab some water, consult my work out schedule, pop in the dvd and start following along.  Some days it’s a slow start, arms crossed, halfway doing the warm-up, yawning, pouty face.  But, eventually I get into it a little more and push harder.  Vacations are always a good motivator!

I’ve mapped out a workout plan for the year with all my favorite Beachbody programs to help me stay on the right track. Actually doing the programs helps me push myself a little harder because I like to check off the boxes and complete each program. Otherwise I end up picking the easiest or quickest workout just to get it done. Check out my full reviews for 21 Day Fix, T25, Brazil Butt Lift, and 10-Minute Trainer.  Be on the lookout for a review of Core de Force soon!

Here is my plan for 2017

Mapping Out A Fit Year 2017

I print out all the schedules at the beginning of the year and put them in order on the clipboard I keep in my work out room.  I could print as I go but this way I feel like I’m committing to getting them all done at the beginning of the year.  I have given myself some wiggle room and more time than needed to complete most of the programs.  Because, well life and vacations and work trips, etc.

I’ve chosen the timing of each program for a specific reason.  I like to start off the new year with the 21 Day Fix because it’s a great way to get back into good exercise and eating habits after the holidays.  Core de Force is the latest Beachbody program so I’ve got it lined up next.  T25 is a great way to get in shape for the upcoming summer months.  Brazil Butt Lift does a great job of perking up your bottom and abs for swim suit season.  Another 21 Day Fix before school starts is good for reinforcing healthy habits before the business of the school year. Another round of T25 to keep in shape before the holiday season.  10 Minute Trainer to end the year because December can be a little hectic.

I’m pressing the reset button on January 9th if anyone wants to join me on the 21 Day Fix. Comment below and we can hold each other accountable!  Make sure you check out my Weekly Menu posts for 21 Day Fix menus and meal ideas. I’m trying a new approach this time which I’m excited about because I usually struggle with planning meals for this program.  If it works I’ll be sure to share.

How do you plan on staying healthy this year?
