Trick-or-treat! That’s what children say when they go to the front door on Halloween, right? What if it had another meaning?
- Start to reduce your “boxed foods” and increase your “clean” ones. – If you read the ingredients on a box, I bet some of the ingredients you either won’t know or can’t pronounce. Each time you go to the grocery store, stick to the outside aisles more and more. That’s where the good stuff is!
- Add physical activity into your lifestyle. – You can start small too. Start with 2-3 days a week and over time, increase the number of days.
- Eliminate the soda! – By removing soda out of your diet, you will reduce your chances of becoming a diabetic and help you lose weight. Instead of soda, go with water that’s infused with fruit. And if you like the bubbly, try a carbonated water.
- Find an accountability partner. – This can be anyone! Someone you work with, one of your family members, someone you know online through social media. Wherever you find that person, stay in contact so you can start this new lifestyle together and hold each other accountable.
- Set goals and stick to them. – By writing out your goals, you are more likely to stick to them. What I suggest doing is writing out your goals and post them around the house wherever you are likely going to see them…on the bathroom mirror, on the refrigerator, on the back of the front door, etc. The more place you post them, the more they will remind you that you are doing this for a reason.
