Transcript for Chris Powell Helps Get You Started on a Healthy New Year
here with Chris and Heidi Powell. Extreme weight loss. A lot of people have new year's resolutions. What's the best way tock get up and going? One of the best ways is just to get up and go. And sometimes we have this huge mountain of promises and commitments and resolutions we just made. You know what, scale back. We always say focus on one commitment at a time. We're 83% likely to keep a commitment if we make one. If we make two, we're only 35% likely to keep those commitments. Whittle it down to one. Chris, how do you keep it going? Understand we're all human. Nobody is perfect. We're going to mess up. Everybody messes up. Heidi messes up. I don't. I don't mess up that often. No. I don't mess up. We want everybody to remember you are only one meal away from being right back on track at any given time. It's true. It's true. And so many times you're like I didn't have time, and so I went to the drive-through. I'm done. I failed. No you didn't. Pick you're right back up. What I'm hearing from your husband is forgive yourself. Absolutely. 100%. It's true. Does that work at home for you too? I don't want to get into your marriage. Now you're talking about it. You got the mats out. What can you do if you don't have time for the gym? A lot of times for the folks watching they're thinking I can't do jumping jacks and all this stuff. You don't have to. We all start small, somewhere. Chill on the couch. If you're sitting at home watching us right now, happy new year. Second of all, you're in the perfect position to start moving with the biggest muscle groups of the body our legs. Extend your arms out and stand up. You just did a beautiful squat. And sit right back down and stand up again and guess what? Now you're working out. Now you are keeping your new year's resolutions. Do a few of these, 10, 15, 20. And then let's transition it right there. There you go. That's right. Right back down to the ground. A lot of people are thinking I can't do a pushup. Instead we're going to do a cobra. Leave your hips on the ground and press up and come right back down. That feels good on my lower back. Stretches your abs, core, those hip flexors. And it's working your chest, shoulders and triceps. All right. I love it. All right. I feel terrific. Take a seat again. Back to the chair. Guess what? We just took our first steps toward working out in the new year. I love it.
