Start Paying Attention To Yourself

Pay attention to how you feel. Notice how your body reacts when
you eat certain foods. Observe how you feel when you exercise, after
your exercise, and all the times in between. When we pay attention,
instead of rushing into impulse decisions, we eat better, exercise
more, and make choices that sustain a healthy and happy life.

This really helps a lot. I have noticed when I eat avocados, almonds, little walnuts, etc., that my body feels more alert and has more energy. I believe that there are certain foods that are "super foods" to your body. It is up to you to experience what foods are good for you.

    Good thought. Plus, any idea that has 'avocado' in it is delicious. emoticon

Lead By Example

Being fit not only gives you more confidence in your daily life,
it also sets a good example for your children. By showing your
kids that their busy parents can still find the time to get to the
gym, you’ll encourage them to make better, healthier choices in their own lives.

I have seen many parents on our "BRING IT" team that have done this and I think that is GREAT! As you can see from some of my picture's, I also do the same with my little one. She loves to workout with daddy!

Hope everyone has a WONDERFUL and BLESSED weekend!

    My 10 year old loves to work out with me. I have tried to be a good example for all my kids but the 18 and 16 year old did not or have not yet picked up on the habit.

Take Pictures of Yourself

When I want to get leaner, I take a picture of myself
and post it in visible places -- the bathroom, fridge,
or computer monitor are all great choices. It's an
objective look at where I am, and a constant motivator
to eat clean and hit my workouts.

Start Small and Build

Motivation follows action, so make your first step easy. But
follow that step immediately with another, bigger step. The
idea is to get the proverbial snowball rolling downhill, so you
can pick up momentum towards your goals. For example: Purge
your kitchen of no-no foods, re-stock on healthy options,
and then cook a big, nutritious meal -- one that’ll leave leftovers
so you’ll have more fulfilling food the following day.

Build Your Diet Around Foods You Actually Want To Eat
Make a list of your absolute favorite foods in each group –
meats, vegetables, fruits, carbs. Try to come up with at
least 10 foods for each. Ignore the stuff that you've heard
everyone 'should' eat, and instead focus on foods that you
love the taste of. Make that your grocery shopping list.
