A new season is a great time to renew your commitment to healthy eating and an active lifestyle. Decide, plan and implement!
The warmer weather, the longer days, the sunshine…these will all help to keep you motivated. The hardest part is always getting started. Make a plan, keep a journal, and stick to it. Once you GET started, your increased energy and well being will be your motivation.
Here are some tips:
-visualize success; picture yourself with weight off, or have a an old picture of yourself slim displayed somewhere
-plan for the occasional treat; allow yourself a little leeway, a nice meal out once a week for example
-give yourself non-food rewards for your achievements
-take a picture of yourself in a bathing suit BEfore you start, and have a look at it when you weaken or are tempted
Decide once and for all you have had enough and are going to do something about it! Take responsibility for your choices. Look at what has made you unhealthy and how you have let this happen to yourself.
Remember, nothing tastes as good as healthy feels!!!
