FOCUS ON THESE ESSENTIAL STEPS FOR A HEALTHY LIFE!

We think that for healthy eating and exercise to work they should be hard and require lots of restrictions and rules. Making small changes seems too easy.

But the good news is they do make a difference!

They make a difference because they become a lifestyle change! A lifestyle change that we can keep doing.

 

Here is some research to back up my statement!

Here we are at Camp #4. We are ready for a few more small changes!

Camp #4

Nutrition: Add 1 serving of fruit – 1 small piece of fruit or ½ cup of cut fruit to 1 meal. Continue using a smaller plate. Drink water as your main beverage.

Exercise: Continue with 20 minutes of exercise daily. Add incidental exercise to your day. Examples are: take the stairs, park at the far end of the parking lot, walk during commercials.

Mental: Identify 2 lies you say to yourself. Replace those lies with truth statements.

Spiritual: Pray and access Jesus’ power. Choose a verse to memorize. Here’s a good one.  I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  Philippians 4:13

TODAY’S little STEP: Get started on Camp #4! You can do it!  Every little step makes a difference because every mountain is climbed one step at a time!
