Are you ready for a new beginning?

What new beginning are you looking for?  Many women, particularly now – right before bathing suit season, decide it’s time to lose some weight.  If you want to make this a priority, it can be!  It’s OK to make yourself a priority.

Check out these helpful hints that, taken together, is the perfect recipe for weight loss success!

  • Attainable Goals. Start out by setting small goals, like taking the stairs instead of the elevator or losing 1 – 2 pounds a week.
  • Write it down. Use a food and exercise journal so you can track when/what/how much you eat, as well as your physical activity.  Check out Shannon’s Food Journal & Exercise Log (or create your own), it provides a very easy way to get all of this information on paper.
  • Get physical. Work physical activity into your schedule at least 2.5 hours/week.  Remember, you don’t have to get all of your exercise in at one point in the day – Stretching and toning when you wake up in the morning, walk for 10 minutes at lunch, some Yoga poses to wind down before going to bed.
  • What’s cookin’ good lookin‘? Maintain a healthy diet.  Choose low fat or fat free versions of your favorite foods; reach for water or fat-free milk instead of soda or other sugary drinks; when eating out, ask for sauces and dressings on the side. A few changes can make a big difference!

When will YOUR new beginning begin??
