If you are like me, work and chores often supersede me taking care of my own needs. Once a month, have a "YOU" day! Do those things you put off like getting your hair done, getting that manicure or pedicure, shopping for those new walking shoes, soaking in the bathtub, etc. Not only is this a time for well needed relaxation, but looking and feeling better about yourself gives you a boost and more confidence to keep up with your health/fitness journey! This is good for the guys as well!

If you want to lose weight, make sure you intake more calories earlier in the day. It's not the time of day that matters (a calorie is a calorie); it's that you're giving yourself a chance to burn it during the day.
If you're eating 1800 calories in a day, divvy it up more or less as breakfast 600, lunch 500, dinner 500 snack 200 calories. Variations will occur naturally, but make an effort to have more in the morning.
Starting on this journey can be overwhelming. It's best to start small, and set yourself achievable goals. Every day, find something to celebrate - even if it's as seemingly small as tracking all your calories on a hectic day!
If it has been a bad day, create a healthy plan for the rest of the day, now..Don't wait
It's easy to let the whole day slide if part of the day's been bad. If you've had a bad spell, get up and figure out all the healthy actions you're going to take the rest of the day and put the bad part of the day behind you. 381
