Each food categories exchange list contains food items which can be interchanged with each other. The serving sizes of each food is important to note as it is calculated so that the macro-nutrients per portion are similar. Remember, some processed foods such as sauces, ready-made meals and spices contain added sugar. It is recommended to avoid processed foods and sauces as far as possible for best results.
Often the hardest part of achieving your lasting weight control goals is the ability to create the mental shift that is needed to develop routine. You can have total control over the way you look by taking charge of the things that you do.
Introducing forward planning and preparation into your lifestyle helps you to take charge over your habits and routines. By simply getting to grips with this concept, you can make your ultimate physique a reality. It is often the small changes that yield the biggest results.
Defining your goals will be the first step of your journey to success!
You have to be clear on what it is that you want to achieve. The moment you define what it is you want to accomplish the easier it will be to set out your goals and objectives.
By having set goals you are already more focused towards your success than not having a starting point or clear vision of your goal!
Write down your goal and be realistic. Take your time and really think this through. Differentiate between your personal goal, family goal, financial or business goal.
As I said be realistic about this. WHY do I say so? So that you don’t end up setting unrealistic goals in an unrealistic timeframe to only be overwhelmed and discouraged by not reaching them in the end. By setting realistic goals in a proper timeframe will increase your chances of actually achieving them.
No matter how small or how big your goal might be, write it down or print it out and put it somewhere where you will be “visually” reminded of how bad you really want this.
Once you have your goal, set your time frame for achieving your goal. Work on a time frame for a long-term or short-term goal. For example – Have a 3 Month / 6 Month / 1 Year / 5 Year / 10 Year Goal.
You will see how amazing it is to look back after 3 months or a year and actually see what you have achieved or reached.
The feeling of achieving a goal is absolutely priceless and it is like an “inner being” accomplishment!!
Be SMART when you set your goals?
Tips to help you achieve your goals:
Get a mentor or “role model”. This person must be an inspiration to you or someone who achieved a similar goal than the one you are setting for yourself. Do research on the goal or similar goals or people who reached it for example a Weight Loss goal. Research the things they did or what helped them to achieve their goals and let this be a guideline for you! Always remember to never compare yourself with others we are all unique individuals.
Let it be a guide or motivation only. Then share your goal with a friend, your spouse, co-worker, family member or through a blog. This will keep you accountable believe me this is how my blog became such a big part of my “journey”. Sharing stories by not only motivating myself in the end but others as well.
So go on set those goals. Don’t set NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS rather set SOLUTIONS and GOALS.
We can do this.
I will shortly share why I posted this specific topic on Goals or Motivation.
