With the new year comes new resolutions. Whether it’s losing weight, quitting smoking or kicking diet soda to the curb, it’s important to set realistic goals for yourself. Planning on quitting something cold turkey or losing a massive amount of weight in just a few days are surefire ways to set yourself up for failure. It’s best to start with small goals, tackle them and keep moving forward.
