Some people say “a new year, new me…” or at least, a better version of you.

Many people are kind of like Mimi Brainerd. They want to start 2016 strong and steady.

“My NYE resolution is to exercise a little more patiently,” she said.

It’s almost impossible to change overnight.

“I usually start really strong during the week,” she said. “It’s really hard during the weekends. I see myself slipping one or two days but you just got to bring it back every time.”

Her coach, Gianni Carbnoe makes sure she keeps her eye on the prize. He said fitness, like life, is taken one day at a time.

“I’m just going to get today done. All you have to worry about is today. Then you get overwhelmed, you think ‘oh my, gosh, all this stuff that I have to do.” You can’t think too far ahead in the future, no need for extra worry and stress.

The trick is baby steps. Things like planning out your meals, instead of hitting the drive thru for fast food are the keys to success.

“Alot of the times the stuff that's convenient not best for you,” Carbnoe said.

While Brainerd looks good already, she continues to push forward and it’s not only her looks she's working on.

“This is the only body you have for the rest of your life,” she said. “If you’re not going to take care of it no one else.”

She has no doubts she will get to her goal.
