    This post is right on time! I’ve recently adjusted my diet and exercise routine and picked something that would work with my lifestyle. Its great to get confirmation that this is a marathon not a sprint and planning is key.

    I can finally say that after many years of not feeling “balanced,” I finally got myself in balance this past year. I know what my week looks like and I’ve stayed organized with it. But I’ll definitely share this article with friends and family members of mine who definitely could benefit reading this perspective!

  • Kristen

    I appreciate that this article focuses on habits vs specific food/exercise suggestions. Each person has individual goals and they can be achieved best when you look at the habits that help/hinder!

  • This post is coming at such a good time for me! I hear of brides doing juice cleanses and crazy diets and it’s almost making me feel like a failure for NOT doing a crazy diet before my wedding (which is a month away). But the truth is, I work out 4-5 times a week and eat pretty healthfully so I haven’t made any major changes. Such a good read!

  • Emily

    The Everygirl reads my mind! I was just about to look up if there were any articles on cleanses. I’m assuming the advice on a juice cleanse would be a no-go?

  • My mother always says “everything in moderation,” and I hear that in my head all the time now! It’s so true though. You will never be able to sustain most diets, so I try to be practical and let myself indulge a bit here and there!

    Staying healthy requires a lot of thinking and self reflection to be successful. You have to always discipline yourself so that will be stay on the right track of achieving your goal. http://coreevolve.com/

  • Great article! Thank you for bringing this to light.

    This is exactly what I teach my clients. You did not put on the weight overnight so you have to understand and be gentle on yourself that the weight will not be lost overnight. Also understanding that at the same time you need to look at your lifestyle. Does your current lifestyle agree with your health goal?

    No one diet fits everyone! Everyone responds differently to different foods. The recent new diet may work for your friend but it doesn’t mean your body will respond to it. It’s about finding what works well for you and how to crowd out the junk in your diet & lifestyle.
