Here are 4 steps to set yourself up for success this week!
- Get rid of cookies, chips, sodas and any junk food in the house. If it’s there, it’s a temptation. Set yourself up for success by eliminating food triggers.
- Make exercise a habit. Taking care of your health means putting yourself first…not after the kids, work and your spouse. FIRST! Now, I realize that’s super tough, especially with young children that constantly need you, deadlines at work, or household chores that cannot be put off any longer. But when you have sick days – when you have a cold or flu – you are forced to take a break. Schedule at least three times a week when you can focus on YOU and any type of exercise you can fit into your busy schedule, whether it’s walking, swimming, biking or taking a fitness class. The more you exercise, the less sick days you have, the more you want to eat better and the healthier you’ll be! Getting your heart rate up releases “feel good” hormones in your body, so you’ll be happier too! Set yourself up for success by scheduling a workout at least three times a week.
