When we decide to get serious about our health, the world does not change to accommodate us. Everything remains the same. So what do we do?. Well, first WE must change - our attitudes, our focus, our beliefs and our habits. Once we do that, it becomes easier. Change must first begin with us.

I often find I really don't want to get out there and exercise. Well, I found a trick that works like a dream. I allow myself to not want to and just get ready to go. Then if I still don't want to walk or run after my first lap or first stage of what I'm doing I allow myself to change it up or quit altogether. I've only changed my exercise once so I think this helps get me up and out!
To stay on track with eating healthy on a daily basis, I tell myself "Today is the first day of my new eating habits".
It's been my experience that I do quite well on the first day of trying a new diet and now in this case a lifestyle change. So when I think I want to revert back to some old habits I remind myself that today is the first day of the changes and it has been working for me for well over a month now.
