We’re almost two months into the new year…and by now, more than a third of us have strayed from our New Year’s resolutions, particularly those resolutions involving diet and exercise.
But it’s not too late; with recommitment and focus – and a bit of help from the following suggestions and unique gifts – you can get back on track and get ready for warmer weather and lighter clothing.
Count calories…but don’t forget about other nutrients that can pack on pounds and rob you of the unique gift of good health. This analytical diet scale provides complete nutritional information on an entire meal and is ideal for monitoring cholesterol intake, or tracking sugar consumption. The scale connects via Bluetooth to a smartphone or tablet and uses a free app to record and store diet data on calories, proteins, carbohydrates, sugars, total fat, fiber, sodium, and cholesterol for over 550,000 foods.
Make exercise so easy, you’ll have no excuses. This motorless walker’s treadmill folds to only 14″ high for unobtrusive storage, so you can exercise any time in the convenience of your own home. Available only from Hammacher Schlemmer, the treadmill’s resistance is created by magnetic force, eliminating the need for AC power and allowing for setup anywhere. A battery-powered monitor tracks time, speed, distance, heart rate, and calories burned.
Accept coaching to help you stay on track. This digital bathroom scale has a daily calorie coaching function that provides you with an accurate number of calories needed to reach or maintain your target weight. A Hammacher Schlemmer exclusive, this scale monitors daily readings of weight and body composition, and wirelessly transmits the data via Bluetooth to an iOS-compatible device for easy tracking and motivation. It displays data in a list, graph, or chart for daily goal management.
Finally, if you have multiple resolutions you’re not keeping, give yourself permission to abandon some of them. It’s better to recommit to one or two than to fail across the board.
