I’ve made slight improvements by following the baby steps to fitness I laid out in Time to Get Moving: Baby Steps to Getting Fit, but I found that if I don’t have strict rules or goals set I’m not very good at following through. Yes, I have a goal to lose a few pounds, but how exactly am I going to do that?
Get support. In addition to continue using MyFitnessPal to track my changes, I’ve added friends to help keep me motivated. Working together towards a goal is always a good thing.
Eat healthier. Continue to plan meals but be a little more aggressive in choosing what I will eat for each meal. I’m not ready to cut out all sweets just yet but ensuring a fruit or vegetable is included in every meal is a big step forward. I’m also going to limit eating out at lunch to 1-2 times a week so I will force myself to make my lunch (and save money).
Daily exercise. Again, if you know me, I am not a fan of working out, but daily walks aren’t going to cut it. There are several great fitness boards on Pinterest and I’ve found some great pins that detail great daily exercises you can do at home. I can find a few minutes in the morning for a little exercise, right? Here is a great 7 minute workout pin I found that I’m going to try for 30 days.
Ok, here I go. How are you doing on reaching your fitness goals? Any other baby steps you have for me to add to my routine?
