New Year...New You!
Hello again, it's Barbi, with another message for you regarding the real truths about fat loss. I hope this message finds you in good health.
Here's two tips for your New Year:
1. Keep a diary.
No, not the little girl kind, a food diary (or journal if you prefer). Before you can improve your diet, you have to know exactly what you've been eating, when and why. Although my usual philosophy is all about using your time efficiently and not necessarily counting calories, this little habit will help you save time and effort in the long run. Record everything you eat, drink and your feelings for eating/drinking it, every day for seven days (minimum). Then use this information and what you see as unhealthy patterns to improve your diet a little bit each day. Studies have shown that people who monitor what they eat with a written record lose more weight than those who don't. You can also use the online nutritional program I offer to keep track of more than calories.
2. Anyone can spare 15-20 minutes a day. Really.
You know my speech...15 to 20 minutes of intense interval strength/cardio training goes farther (every time) than an hour or two in the gym or on the treadmill. So give yourself 20 minutes, increase your strength, burn some fat, look and feel better!
Note to self: You have total control of YOU!
What do you have to lose besides pounds of fat? Remember, you are worth every minute you spend building healthy habits!
