Changes Made!

So I am taking my own advice - making some changes!

A few easy things to get started and to feel like progress is being made is the best way to kick off a plan. What can you do in 48 hours to get started? Here are 5 suggestions to get started.

1. I cleaned out my refrigerator of all "bad" food!! Yes, it is pretty empty but a starting point.
2. Made an appointment with my personal trainer. This is going to be scary, but it's the only way I am accountable to keep on working out. He's coming on Friday for our first official workout...
3. Started to exercise. I just did it - don't think about it - just go!
4. Logging food - I know everyone hates this. It's time consuming and a pain in the butt to do, but IT WORKS!!! If there is one thing out there that I can recommend its to log. It doesn't matter how you do it, just get it down - on paper or electronically. I am using MyFitnessPal and there are many others out there - pick one that works best for you!
5. Increased water intake. Get a BPA free bottle and drink water!!

Even though it sounds like a lot, once you get started and keep it up for a few days, it will not only get easier, but it will become part of your routine.


  1. Thanks for the motiviation! I'm going to exercise!

  2. I'm using MyFitnessPal, too, and it's great for logging food. Especially when it posts my food and exercise to Facebook - public accountability is pretty darn motivating!
