How to start? What to do next? Who can help?
Whatever you do, however you start, and whoever you talk to, there is one rule to remember: MAKE IT SIMPLE for yourself and those who are supporting you. The alarm clock did not ring one day, we got out of bed and said to ourselves, boy I weight 30 more pounds than I did yesterday or why is it tough to walk 1 mile today when I ran a marathon yesterday? The process of getting un-fit & un-healthy is a long process that happens to the majority of all of us. This is not an issue that only happens to you.
So where do you start? The first step is to tell yourself to keep it simple and understand the components that you and those supporting you can first learn about and then do something about. The second step is to tell yourself that it will take time to get fit & healthy. Just like it took time to get un-fit and un-healthy. The good news is that it will take much less time than you think for you to get fit & healthy - especially if you are in control and understand the simple steps to start with on your journey.
Small and simple changes can make a BIG difference in your health, wellness, and fitness. Try one of the following one week, then another the next, and so forth. Keep it simple, but START!
- Walk 15 - 30 minutes 3 times a week.
- Reduce the amount of foods you eat that are high in fat and sugar.
- Eat more fruits and vegetables.
- Drink more water.
- Ask a friend to join you on this web site. Accountability.
Helping you understand the first steps is one of the major reasons this web site has been put together.

These are simple, but start with you taking ownership of each by understanding each. Again, these are simple but have a major impact on your health.
