TIPS

Back your­self. En­joy any mo­ti­va­tion you get from oth­ers, but it’s es­sen­tial to learn to be your own cheer­leader. No-one cares about your own health as much as you do.

Prepa­ra­tion is key. Pre­pare meals in ad­vance; pack your gym bag the night be­fore. I al­ways have a packed lunch for work, so I rarely find my­self hun­gry with noth­ing to eat.

Have fun. If you’re not en­joy­ing what you’re eat­ing or the ex­er­cise you’re do­ing, it’s go­ing to be hard to stick to your life­style change.
