Secrets of Success

Embrace Change, Even If It'S Uncomfortable At First



Getting used to doing things differently, like changing cooking and eating habits and working out (even just fitting a workout in to my day) can make me bristle at times. It's not what I'm "used to". But when I start feeling like this, I ask myself, "Well, how was that old way of life working for you? You have to change habits to expect different results." It sounds so simplistic, and it is, but sometimes that little reminder is what I need to motivate myself to make healthy choices.
