Heathy Living: Gauge status so far, recap

by | Kim Beasley, Motivational, Social Media Marketing | 1 comment

One of the things that's very healthy when trying to form new good habits is to occasionally gauge yourself. So today's focus will be on determining how things are going and what my plans are for the upcoming week. I'm excited that during the past week I have made really great choices in regard to healthy eating and setting up my program.

In setting up my program, I was able to determine the baseline for some of the areas that are being affected by my healthy living program. I'm still creating the baseline for my exercise program but I'm done one thing and that's monitored my steps and have a good idea what my daily goal will be.

During the upcoming week, I plan to solidy my exercise program with different activities such as Yoga, Zumba and other types of workout routines. I want to determine what works best for me and what will work into my plan for healthy living.
