You’ve made the decision to improve your lifestyle. …
Its important to involve your friends and family by making them part of your journey. Family can support the incremental changes you make along the way – helping you to make better diet choices, keeping track of your workouts ie: counting off your reps or running a timer for each exercise.
Children love to be a part of things that interest their parents – get your children to run a “Star Chart” for your training just like you do for their homework or their chores.
The wonderful side-effect of this is that as you improve and your usual habits change your family can adopt some of your new choices and routines and by default they reap the benefits as well.
So your desire to make things better for your family can expand exponentially like a snowball rolling downhill growing as you gather momentum.

READ THE NUTRITION FACTS
How many times have you bought a pre-packaged “healthy snack” because you are “on-the-go” and you eat the whole thing. If you take a look at the nutrition information on the bag really may not be that fantastic.
Each packet/box or label contains a serving size.
A wise person once told me to divide what I bought into the appropriate number of servings, put the rest away for later, close the door to the cupboard / fridge / freezer etc to remove the temptation THEN enjoy your snack. Sounds like a lot of work but it only takes a moment and with practice you get better at knowing how much to eat.
