I've been working on some healthy lifestyle changes and you know what? It's been hard! I've tried to be proactive always moving forward toward my goals. Two days especially I really struggled. I called my son, who is a personal trainer, and his talk was good. He will be here on Friday and is going to give me a workout on his new TRX and then leave it for me while he takes a short trip away with the guys. I also called a girlfriend to get out and walk with. She wants to do the couch to 5K so maybe I'll be getting a little running in also. And this weekend I signed up for two 10k runs- one in May and one in June.
A good friend told me today "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail." It's true for me.
Another thing I think is very important whether you are tying to lose weight or get healthier is the company you keep. Are you surrounding yourself with people and friends who are supportive of your efforts? Is your environment encouraging you to be your best?
I want to challenge you to write down the names of people who support you, encourage you and bring out your best. Then make sure you spend some time with those people.
Have you asked your family for their help and support? My husband and two kids are my biggest supporters. Don't expect your family to read your mind and know what you need. Tell them how they can help you.
Have a healthy week!!
