The conversations in the break room at work are very similar to the ones I overhear in public too.
“I’m up a few pounds.”
“I was doing great but ever since Halloween candy and Thanksgiving I’m out of control.”
“Come January I’m gonna be better at eating and exercising.”
So, instead of a diet or another New Year’s resolution here’s some advice:
Track your food on a calorie counting app.
Lose a half pound every week. Make exercising a calendar event that’s non-negotiable.
Stop regretting what you’ve eaten and learn to say no. I opened the kitchen cupboard the other night and Cocoa Puffs memorized me. A huge bowl later and now I’m using the rest of the week to get back on track.
Eat or drink something that reminds you of your accomplishments. I will have two Dove chocolates every day. It’s routine and reminds me of the journey I’m on.
Start living. A 30 minute walk may burn 100 calories but it doesn’t justify a bowl of ice cream that equals 450 calories. Eat more fish, chicken and vegetables. Drink more water to fill you up.
Stop Making New Year’s Resolutions That You Break by March
Change your life. Make time for your health five days a week for 30 minutes. Put it on your smartphone calendar.
Stop Making Excuses
Have a plan. Jump all in. Go for it. Today!
