Setting New Year’s Resolutions is the easy part. Now it’s time to stick with them and reap those healthy rewards! Health and Fitness Expert and Women’s Weight Loss Coach Stephanie Mansour appeared on the Today Show to share five simple ways you can help yourself succeed in your healthy resolution goals.
I’m all about keeping fitness fun and sustainable, so here are five fresh tips to help you stay consistent on your path to weight loss!
Make Sunday Boiling Hot!
If doing a full meal prep on Sunday is too much, start by committing to prepping just one thing on the weekend. I recommend boiling some eggs. Throw a dozen eggs in a large pot of boiling water on the stove, and voila! Quick, protein-rich snacks that are ready to grab and go all week long.

Turn a Working Buddy Into a Walking Buddy
One of my own private weight loss clients actually schedules walking meetings with her colleagues—so great!
If you have a coworker you’re close with or someone you know has similar fitness goals, why not ask them to walk around the building with you on lunch breaks? If it’s a nice day you can walk outside and get fresh air or depending on where you work you can walk up and down your office stairs to really get that heart rate up.
That bit of movement might even motivate you to hit up the gym after work!
Hunger Can Be Helpful
It’s not the end of the world to feel a little hungry, often when we feel those hunger pangs first hit we are tempted to act on them immediately. Take some time out and drink a full glass of water. This will make you slow down while also filling you up, and hydration really is so important! I’m not saying don’t feed yourself when it’s appropriate to, but if you are on a weight loss journey and in a caloric deficit the truth is sometimes you will feel hungry.
And that’s OK!
Mmm, right? Not so fast! This is one of my hacks to help you stay strong when those late night cravings for all the sweets hit you! Keep a bottle of lotion in your snack cupboard and before you reach for the junk food make sure you put that lotion on your hands first. Who wants to eat snacks that smell and taste like lotion, right? Not me, no thanks!
Power Up Your Coffee
Last, but not least, here’s a way to improve upon your life-giving morning cup of coffee. This is especially helpful if you’re not a breakfast person or don’t like to eat right away in the mornings. Try adding a scoop of chocolate protein to your first cup. It’s super delicious and will provide you with energy to get through your entire day!
