With temptations everywhere it’s hard to constantly say no and leave it all up to willpower. If you’re ready to make your healthy lifestyle a priority, you’ve got to start with a strong foundation. Indulgences are necessary from time to time, but staying committed to a routine will help habits stick for long-term success. It may be a little bit of a struggle at first, but once you get into the groove, you’ll wonder how you lived any other way.
Start by setting goals: If you’re making healthy changes in your lifestyle, there’s got to be something you’re striving for. Are you hoping to be lighter on your feet? Want to get into your old favorite pair of jeans? Do you just want to feel healthier and more energized? Set attainable goals — both big and small! — so that you feel more accomplished as you move through your routine.
