CONSISTENCY OUTPERFORMS PERFECTION EVERY TIME
Use these tips to ensure you’re working on making a change that sticks-
*If you are trying to lose weight, make a changes that make sense for your lifestyle.
If you’re a busy parent feeding your family who doesn’t like to cook, it might not make sense for you to use lengthy and arduous recipes and meal plans. Find quick, easy, and healthy recipes!
* Make changes to the roadblocks that will make the biggest impact on your results. They need to be established first.

We call this ‘mowing your lawn, when your house is burning down’. It’s easy to get distracted by all the health claims out there. Stay focused on the big items that give you the most bang for your buck!
*Make one small, habit-based change a time

I know it’s a New Year and we’re all excited about making some changes to healthy fresh start, but guess what?! The kids are probably going to get sick. You might go on a vacation or go to a party.
