Start from Now

Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.- Carl Bard

The power to make changes is right NOW. Begin with one small step at a time. It takes time to build new habits. Each week choose a new step. What is your small step this week? Choose one or two things to focus on.

1) Eat Breakfast: It will boost your metabolism.

2) Try to have lean protein with each meal. Good choices include: chicken, fish, turkey, whey protein, Greek yogurt, and eggs.

3) Watch the sugar! Read labels and choose low-sugar foods. Choose fresh fruit or water over juice.

4) Water! Aim for 8 to 10 glasses a day. Most people think they’re hungry when they're really thirsty.

5) Ditch the processed food and choose healthy whole grains loaded with fibre.

6) Workout: Not just in class, but at home too. It’s recommended that you workout three to four times a week. For a well-balanced, effective program, go to The Buff Mom Members Area. You can also print the workouts.

7) Healthy Mindset: Instead of focusing on where you are now, see yourself as having already achieved the goal.

Whatever your small step, WRITE it down. This action sends a powerful message to the subconscious mind that you mean business :) What can you do right now in this moment to move you closer to your goal?
