40 Ideas For New Years Resolutions

As a fitness trainer, I realize that the best way to get everything that you want is to set goals. As we come into the New Year, there is no better time to set goals. So here are 40 goals/New Years Resolutions. Pick one or do a combination of several. Either way, if you stick to it, you will become a happier, healthier, and more fulfilled person. Happy New Year!

1. Eat more fruits and vegetables everyday. Make it a goal to add at least three
