Don't be afraid of breaking out of your "comfort zone".....
Whether it be trying a new form of exercise or healthy food that intimidates you - remember that the quest for better health is a JOURNEY and, as such, comes with the potential for new experiences to be had along away.......I just broke away from my age-related angst and tried ZUMBA - it was AWESOME and I did, indeed, live to tell the tale! So hang in there and don't be afraid to try something new!
When cooking or eating the smallest changes can make a big difference such as using non fat sour cream and lower fat cheeses. That is also true when eating condiments. I always go for the liter versions. I also try to stay away from white flour and sugar. I try to eat whole wheat products.
Don't be afraid to try lower fat options.
Don't be afraid to try something new. Be it an exercise class that just started at your gym or that piece of equipment you've been eyeing from the treadmill for months! Step out of your comfort zone and you just might find something new to enjoy!!!
