Do you have a PLAN?

goal without a plan

New Year’s Goal: lose weight and exercise more. Right? But do you have a plan? Are you going to try a few diets? Workout a few days? And then, like in year’s past, go back to your old habits wishing you could lose weight? Having a plan is essential if you want to be successful.

How to make a plan? Write it down. By writing your plan, the connection is more real to your brain and you are more likely to accomplish your goal. Businesses don’t just say, “hey people, we have a plan,” no, they write up the plan, hand it out at their business meeting each Monday morning, give assignments to each person and set out to follow through on the plan.

Have trouble sticking to a plan? Then write one up each morning. Make it more than a “to do” list, make it a spelled out plan for how you intend to eat that day, what you will do for exercise and then DO IT! Don’t just make wishes, make a PLAN!

Got a PLAN? Share it!

Two’s Company, Three’s a Crowd!

Trying to change eating habits is tough, but here’s a method that can get the ball rolling: crowding. Crowding out the old foods with new is a great way to help the taste buds adjust to nutrient packed vegetables and fruits. Start by adding one vegetable or fruit at any time throughout the day. Having a candy bar in the afternoon? A vanilla latte? Add a fruit or vegetable to the mix. After a few days, add another and another. The idea is that as you acquire a taste for healthier foods, the old, less healthy favs will be much easier to drop from the daily diet. Give this a go and let me know how it works for you!

Peace and joy!
