I have found some tips that make my journey more successful and I would like to share them today.

Menu Planning

As a family we sit down weekly to plan out our menu for the week. This helps with out food budget as well as eating more healthy. We write out what evens are happening during the week so we can plan our schedule and meals. Then we work on meals that are healthy and sometimes quick. We like to have our  children involved in this weekly planning so they help choose meals and also understand that there will be meals they may not like or that we want to try. Menu planning is a valuable part of my journey.

Fruits & Veggies

We try to use more vegetables and I try to fill my plate with  good veggies. We love to substitute spaghetti squash for pasta! Also, keeping more fruit in the house and available helps me from going after any junk food that may be found around the house.

Exercise

I love to walk! My family and I go for walks outside when it is nice but I also joined a local gym. I try to get every day and get some miles in on the treadmill. I also try to push my comfort zone, the only way to make a difference is to push yourself outside of your comfort zone. It never hurts to try and afterwards it feels good.  I keep trying to change things up and I see nice results from that.

Eat Mindfully

I have mentioned mindfulness several times in these posts. I really believe that makes a huge difference. Being mindful and in the moment keeps you focused.

Mindful eating is not a diet. It’s about experiencing food more intensely and really enjoying what you eat. – from The How

My success tips above are basic, I think most people would know them already. But there are so many more. I find that reading The How gives me ideas and also helps me plan out each of the tips to be more successful.

What tips do you have? I would love to hear them.
