A Picture is worth a thousand words…
We know what you’re thinking, “I don’t want any pictures taken of me until I get in shape.” Right? Though you may not like the idea right off the bat, hear us out on this one. Taking a picture of yourself can be a great motivator; it will also remind you and really SHOW you how much you have accomplished after 90 days. So grab a camera and snap-off a few selfies in your swimwear or workout cloths, or better yet have someone take a couple of photos for you.
Your #MoveMoreBurnMore – Lifestyle Change Challenges: Stairs over elevators. When parking, take the very first or furthest parking spot that you find. No more shark circling for the closest spot. Do you have a pedometer? If so, shoot for 10,000 steps per day minimum. If you have a smart phone, you have a pedometer. There are several excellent free apps that you can download.
You may have heard these tips before, but have you ever actually added them into your daily life? Chances are, if you are on the “resolution railroad” this is not part of your current lifestyle.
#MoveMoreBurnMore Bonus Activity – Walking after your workout, at lunch (or anytime really), choose your own pace for 30 minutes to 1 hour. You’re already on the treadmill, so if you’re not in a rush and you have some extra time, then keep strolling along and watch a show or listen to some of your favorite tunes after your interval training! Walking for 30 minutes can burn as much 392 additional calories![i]
Food and Diet
Keep a Food Journal / Log…
Week 1 – Track all of your food and everything you drink. Be accurate with portion sizes, but don’t try to change anything just yet. Eat how have been eating. Total up the calories for each day. Be accurate, and be honest.
Weeks 2 thru 4– Review your daily calories from Week 1 and cut your daily total calories by 500-600 each day.

This is a huge factor for many people. Find someone who is truly supportive—that means they will be honest with you about your efforts good or bad—and check in with them once a week. Show them your food log and your workout calendar from the previous week.
