Choose one mini-goal to complete every day. Drink one more 8-ounce glass of water than you did yesterday OR add one extra serving of veggies than you did yesterday OR put in 10 minutes of exercise before lunch (even if it is walking up and down the stairs in 1-2 minute intervals for a total of
10 minutes). Doing one small thing and doing one small thing every day will help you form healthy habits. Keep doing small things every day, and you will realize that you are making healthy habits that help you lose weight, have more energy, and have that healthy glow about you.
Upon opening the refrigerator to mindlessly graze, ask: "Do I really need to eat right now, or am I snacking because I'm stressed, tired, or bored?" If it's really the scheduled time to snack, choose a healthy snack instead of the comfort food. If not, choose to shut the door instead of sabotaging the development of healthy new eating habits.
This prevents me from ruining the progress I have made with healthy new eating habits
