Make a simple change to be healthy!

Did you blow it? Do you feel like a failure? Is getting healthy too hard with your crazy lifestyle?

There’s hope!

Start right now! Take one little step to be healthy.        Yes, just one little step.

One step seems too easy. But, when we create a really easy goal we set ourselves up for success.

When we have success we feel empowered.

Lesley Lutes, PhD, an assistant professor in the department of psychology at East Carolina University, says

healthy habits

“rather than trying an all-or-nothing approach that more often than not fails because it’s too hard to follow”.

Dr. Lutes backs up this statement with numerous clinical studies related to weight loss plans and programs.

Today’s the day! Take one of these little steps.

  1. Drink water as your main beverage. It’s calorie free, what your body needs and it makes your skin beautiful!

  2. Walk for 5 minutes everyday. Just set a timer and walk inside your house. If you feel good, set it for another 5 minutes.

  3. Switch to the smaller dinner plate. Your portions will automatically be smaller.

  4. Decide that your snacks will always include fruit. Add a handful of nuts for protein.

  5. Never eat directly from a bag or box of food. You will have no idea how much you ate.

  6. Have an accountability buddy, someone that you have to report to each week.

  7. Pray everyday. Jesus loves you and wants to help in your health journey.

  8. Quiet that inner critic. That voice in your head that says, “you’ll fail again, why bother starting again?” Instead repeat this statement everyday. “This little step is easy for me to do and it makes a difference. Taking care of me is important”!

  9. Be a food snob. If it’s not a 10 then it’s not worth the calories!

  10. Claim this promise from God! Memorize it! “For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, ‘Do not fear, I will help you’.” Isaiah 41:13
