However, taking baby steps will help you to stay determined and is more practical to keep you on track each day and in the right direction. Here are top ways that can keep you motivated. Attempt to try some of these tips this month that will help you get closer to your goals.

Break FastEarly in the Morning: Never skip breakfast. You have high chances of overeating later, if you skip the important meal of the day. Make a healthy and balanced breakfast that keeps you energized and feels full for long time.

Mid Morning: Aim to lose 1 pound a week, which means, you should reduce your daily intake by 300 calories and you should burn 200-300 calories per day for a week or more. Add more number minutes of exercise per day and add an extra day to your exercise schedule. For instance, if you are working out for 3 days for 45 minutes; try increasing your schedule to 4 days of 1 hour each.

Noon: Pack or eat lunch that is filled with good amount of vegetables and protein. As with breakfast, never skip lunch. Your body’s metabolism needs energy every two hours. It is therefore necessary to fuel your body with nutritious food. Write down as much as you can on what you are eating. Food journal is an effective tool to indicate where you are going wrong in a diet. Use the several free health tracker tools that are available in the Internet.

glasswaterPost Lunch: It is time when you feel like having a cookie or a slice of that yummy pie. Before you grab that piece, drink a glass of water to see if you are hungry. We mistake thirst for hunger, say diet experts. If you still feel hungry, have a small bowl of fruits, crackers and water that can keep you full.

Evening: Prepare healthy and light dinner that consists of herbs, vegetables and grains. Healthy meal need not always be complicated. Look for simple dinner menus that can keep you going.

Post Dinner: Aim to walk for 15-20 minutes after dinner. This is good to burn calories as well as give you a sound sleep at night.

Night: This is the vulnerable time when you may feel like eating out of boredom, exhaustion or emotion. Stick to a hobby that will distract you of such thoughts or simply hit the bed early. A good sleep is an effective way to burn calories. Inadequate sleep leads to unnecessary weight gain. Keep such unwanted calories gain with better and sound sleep.

Your Fortune For Today

Although you should be feeling especially close to friends, lovers, and family, you might find it hard to communicate with them today. Perhaps they have troubles they prefer to keep private and you’re confused, wondering if they’re upset with you. Chances are they aren’t. However, they probably need to work things out for themselves. Be patient. Try to understand. They may share their problems with you tomorrow.

Today, you could receive an affectionate, supportive letter or phone call from someone close to you. Communications with others should go smoothly, and intelligent conversations could well take place. A favorite author, musician, or actor could release a new book, album, or movie that you’ll want to jump on right away. Or you might want to try your hand at such enterprises yourself. You do have the talent.

This is the day for collaboration and improved communication. Even if you prefer working alone, you will be most effective when you share the load. Teamwork and group efforts bring recognition and increased confidence. Ambition will cause some to put family or romantic concerns in second place.

You’re likely to receive news today that brightens your future outlook. It could be that your boss calls you at home and hints at a pending promotion, or your partner could receive a raise or unusually large bonus. Whatever the news, know that your financial picture will begin to look dramatically better than it has been. Start making plans for how you’ll improve your lifestyle. A vacation may just be in order.

It’s very important to express positive emotions to others and fight off your own negative thinking. Let disappointments bounce off, and refuse to take ill-considered words to heart. When one door closes, another opens. Plan to get together with friends. Your consideration, warmth, and humour are highly valued.

Love is in the air today as cupid has his arrow aimed at you! Single people are likely to meet their soul mate today while couples can definitely expect a new fire in their relationships. So take a day off work and look around…you may meet your ‘the one’!

Today you could find yourself brainstorming a way to put your inventiveness and ingenuity to work so that you can advance your career by leaps and bounds and increase your income. You could also become involved in artistic projects of some kind. Don’t be surprised if great ideas come to you with little effort. You’re very intuitive today, so enjoy it.

Old worries and uncertainties might come knocking your door today. You may fall into a bit of a regression and feel inadequate even though you have reached a good place in terms of self confidence. These old emotions that bubble up could hamper your communication with your co-workers or friends today, so be mindful of what lies under the surface for you.

It’s important for you to find your strength through calm and quiet rather than from being loud. It’s only then that you will be taken seriously and people will be more receptive to the things that you
would like to share.
