Change and Calories. They all add up

Just like change adds up over time. So do calories. Choosing fried over baked = more calories, cheese please = extra calories. Losing weight and getting fit are not about the instant fixes but more about making life style changes. You must learn to choose the healthier options. Say no to that cupcake or cookie and opt for a more nutritious snack. Yes it sucks in the beginning. But after awhile it becomes second nature and easier to say no. Before you know it. You won't even want the not so healthy version. Your body will start craving good food like it was craving the bad. Fast food will no longer sound appealing. Going to the gym or working out will be just another part of your day.

It's all about changing your lifestyle to one that is conducive to being fit and staying fit. It's hard in the beginning, but you can do it! Get a food journal, track all food and all exercise. Pay attention to your calories in and how many you burn. Exercise until it hurts. Keep it up even when you think you cannot go on. Push through. Once you are over the hump. It's smooth sailing . You will feel so accomplished and good about yourself!

Today I leave you with a do and don't food list to aid you on your fitness path
