When you are on a diet, it may be overwhelming to stay on track as you may be faced with various distractions – emotional, physical and mental. 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
Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

This could be a very busy day and you will be wise to work from a list. You can be a wonderful influence on children and might want to make this a special time for them. Calls to people who are introverted can make a huge difference in their lives.

The greatest satisfaction today will come when using your energy to solve a complicated problem. Keeping a cool attitude and focusing on specific issues is better than being driven by strong emotions. Other people’s attitudes can seem unreasonable or unnecessary. You can keep your own agenda on the right track.

Today brings strong feelings and maybe a little disappointment. The more willing you are to accept life as it comes, the better you’ll be able to make positive choices. Be especially cautious of your reactions if you’re feeling possessive early in the week. Avoid listening to gossip.

You may be feeling rather extravagant. Avoid gambling – there is a high probability you will lose. This is not your day to win the lottery. Use your network of friends and connections to discover important resources for current projects. A clean and uncluttered house supports clear thinking.

You’re going to be happily busy today. You might come across a project which requires tremendous effort but at the same time is something you are truly passionate about. Persevere through the roadblocks with vigour and you are sure to taste success.

Although business and money matters continue to go well, some rather unsettling news regarding either your finances or the economy in general could reach you today. However, don’t accept as truth anything you hear until you check the facts. The planetary energies now lend themselves to the spread of rumour, gossip, and misinformation. This is definitely the day to hang on to your objectivity.

Changes to your chosen field are indicated. Ideas from other states or countries might fire your creativity. Your intellectual or artistic interests could take on a new dimension, expanding your horizons and opening new opportunities. You might toy with the idea of travel, perhaps to learn more about these matters. Possible formal education in new fields is also indicated.

Today you might feel a powerful need to write down your thoughts, but they could prove a bit too amorphous for you to put into words. You might also have difficulty making contact with friends or loved ones. You may keep missing each other. Getting around in neighbourhood traffic could prove frustrating. In spite of small irritations, this should be an enjoyable day. Hang in there.

It’s a day to be brave. State your opinions even if you think they’re different or unpopular. Wear the clothes you like and stop putting yourself down compared to others. A self-confident attitude will attract people who share your interests and sincerely admire what you do.
