If your are struggling to lose weight, stuck in a 'rut' or want to maintain your current weight let me help you with 3 take homes that you can apply right away.
1. CHANGE ONLY ONE HABIT AT A TIME- Leo Babatu in his book ‘The Power of Less’ wrote ‘In order to create a sustainable habit you need to address one habit at a time.’ His research tells us that you will have a 85% succe...ss rate adopting one new habit at a time. Trying to change two habits at once the success rate to 33%. Changing diet and exercise at once? Try one or the other for 2 weeks before moving on to a new habit,
2.DUMP THE QUICK FIX APPROACH- Usually quick fixes lead to failure because they only put a band aid on the underlying problem. Cause you have yet to learn new weight loss behaiviors you revert back to your old ways.... easily.
3.COMMIT 30 MIN A DAY TO EXERCISE- Does not have to be a continous 30 min. It can be broken up into three 10 min periods. Here are some useful suggestions.
Walk during your lunch hour
Walk to your co workers desk instead of emailing Pace the sidelines at your kids athletic games
Housework and walk around your house
Walk your dog
Bring your groceries from your car into your house one bag at a time
Perform gardening and easy to do home repair projects
Hope this helps.
