This really works. Access is everything!


Small change #2: Store less healthy foods out of sight.  When you come into your kitchen or dining room, you should not be able to spy chips, candy, cake, etc.  Store them in the pantry, drawers, etc.  Instead, place healthier choices — such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains (bread, not too fatty, not too sugary crackers or bars), etc. out on the counter or in the front of the fridge.  You’re more likely to eat what you see first.

Small changes — if one speaks to you, do it!


The other day I was thinking about the importance of small change.  We like to think big, and I like that.  But we make the mistake of thinking that big changes will get us there faster.  That may be true of some things, but when you’re changing your diet and/or exercise and your health, you are trying to change your habits — and that takes time.  Little things make a large impact over time, but they don’t challenge us so severely that we throw up our hands and go face down into a cake using one fork.

I think I may try suggesting one small change a day for as long as I can think of some little ones and see what happens.

If one doesn’t sound good, just wait and see if another tip feels right.  Maybe try one a week, or just one of the suggestions one time…
