Be Motivated.

Living a healthy life requires constant goal setting. In order to reach our goals, we need to hold ourselves accountable and not let our goals escape to the land of New Year’s Resolutions and good intentions.

Keep yourself motivated by writing your goals down and posting them in a visible location. For example, if you frequently flake on the gym at the end of a long work day, put a post it with your goal written on it on your steering wheel. Or if late night binging is your issue, hang your goal on the fridge. It is  a lot harder to skip the gym or grab that bowl of ice cream at 9 PM when your goal is staring you in the face.

Check back for tips on how to write good goals…

Be Healthy. Be Balanced.

Be Perfectly Portioned.

Portion control is the key to weight loss, but unfortunately determining appropriate portions seems like a magic trick. Determining serving sizes is easier than you think! And don’t worry, you don’t have to carry around measuring cups and spoons in your purse to ensure the perfect portion. The answer actually lies in the palm of your hand!

1 serving of meat=the size of your palm

1 serving of grains=the size of your fist

1 serving of fruit=the size of your fist

1 serving of veggies=the size of your open hand

1 serving of fat=the tip of your thumb

Be Healthy. Be Balanced
