1. Identify Your Goal – Always start with a goal. You don’t always have to have an end weight set in stone, but you should have some sort of goal. A specific goal that will be attained, you can always add on to that with additional goals later. If you don’t have a goal, you won’t even now what kind of results you want to see.
  2. Get A Partner – A walking partner to meet up with, or a girlfriend to meet you at the gym. We all know that doing anything alone is much harder than when we have someone with us!
  3. Do One Thing A Week To Make A Change – You don’t have to go all out at the same time. Don’t set yourself up to fail, focus on success of one thing each week. Drink your water, eat more salad, walk on your lunch break, cut the calories! Focus on your on lifestyle change and hit that one thing up each week and build on that!
  4. Write It Down – It’s proven that when we write down every bite we take, we will shed more excess. You would be surprised how much we nibble and snack. You will really get a picture of what your diet consists of. Take one day and write down what you eat, even that handful of M&M’s! Track your activity too and see how the two collide and the results!
  5. Think Of Food As Fuel – Food and water at their most basic are fuel for us whether we are marathon runners or stay at home moms. Food helps us get through our day and fuel you along. Water is vital for energy, weight loss an flushing toxins! Our bodies are amazing machines, created to use food as fuel as well as enjoyment!
  6. Process – Don’t avoid the hard stuff. The journey of healthiness is a lifelong process and being in that mind set will help! There will be ups an downs, there will be days you would like to give up. We all have them, but don’t let them add up to feelings of defeat! Just lift your head high and move on making your next choice!
