Stay Accountable

We love this chart the Perry family uses at their house in Brampton, Ontario. Who doesn't like star stickers! You can also try this Live Right Now Health Journal.

For the month of June we are counting down 30 Days to Summer with registered dietitian Stefanie Senior. Each day she will reveal a new tip to help you reach your summer health goals. Join the conversation through Live Right Now's Facebook Event, "30 Days to Summer" and share your own tips and successes or post questions and feedback. We will enter your name into a draw for a free Skype nutrition consultation with Stefanie.

June 8th ... 23days to summer...

Build a personal accountability system. It is important to monitor your progress to help you see the positive changes that you have made. This could include a weekly weight chart, a food diary, or a calendar dedicated to activity. Keep your system in a visible area and make time for it at least once a day. Each time you reach a benchmark, reward yourself. Rewards provide recognition for your hard work and enhance your motivation to continue on.
