In your quest to be more active, lose weight and/or eat a healthy diet, you need to chart your course. Having a plan is the way to go. The old adage “fail to plan and plan to fail” holds true. In order to reach your goal, you need to have a specific strategy. Don’t just say “I will exercise more”, instead say “I will walk for at least 30 minutes 7 days a week”, and then do it. Don’t say “I will eat more fruit and vegetables”, instead set the goal of having at least 1 – 2 vegetables or fruit at each meal. Write your goals down post your outline where you can see it. Chart your course and you WILL reach your destination.
