The secret is.....
Wednesday, September 21, 2016
You have decided its time to make a change ~ whether you want to lose weight, just be healthier, be more active for your kids ~ whatever it is I applaud you for wanting to make the change. But how do you start?
Your wheels start turning, you start writing all these “goals” down, you say you are going to start tomorrow. Then tomorrow comes and 1 of 2 things either happens: you say I'll start tomorrow (again) OR you start with eating loads of fruits & veggies, no carbs, no junk and you exercise for 2 hours. Well, how do you think this is going to pan out?
Overload ~ an excessive load or amount. By starting your “new journey” with completely changing your eating habits and then adding an excessive amount of exercise you are setting yourself up for failure. 90% of people cannot handle an overabundance of too many things at once. If you are in the 10%, nice job! The secret is to start small and focus on that 1 -2 goals for a few weeks and then incorporate another goal. Don’t put too many on your plate. Identify your top “issue” (for example: you drink 2 sodas a day and no water) and make that your main goal. Be sure to add a walk in daily! 20-30 minutes is perfect; just get moving! Then continue to build from there.
Start tomorrow ~ that is only delaying the process. If you have a few minutes today, start now. Make your list of goals, prep some fruits or veggies, go for a walk. Just do something to get you started on your goal. Don’t wait!
