Get a journal, tell your friends & family about your decision to get healthy, set some goals and get started.
This coming week is more important than it appears. It is physically pretty easy, but represents change and the beginning of a new process. Start by making the decision to make a change and getting serious about making the time each day to work on your health.
Step 1. Get a journal – record as little or as much as you like, but make sure you capture your diet trends, activity and general feelings each day. Some of you will love this part and some will hate it. Find your style and keep track. This is a much more important aspect than you would think.
Step 2. Set your goals - record your base weight, resting heart rate or any other physical or physiological measurement as your starting point and set some goals of where you want to be this time next month, 6 months, year, and 5 years. (We will go into more details on these check points, but trust me you want to take the time to think of them all.) I will also add that you should make sure you use S.M.A.R.T goals. I would love to get some dialogue going on this topic so if you would like to know more please post a comment below or send me an e-mail.
Step 3. Get Started – Make sure that you dive right in. Create a schedule that works for you. This is the beginning of a wonderful new process, one that can make a huge difference in your lifestyle.
