Its important to have motivation in your life in order to keep focus. One way Michelle loves doing this is by using her FitBit to track her steps for the day. It is said that you should walk at least 10,000 steps per day! Her FitBit notifies her that she’s hit her 10K mark! It also tracks her calories burned, sleep and more!
Not only should you motivate yourself to get in your 10k steps but like ShrinkingJeans.net’s March Challenge, do 10k a Day, Plus!

Research and find a resource that you know and trust to guide you! Example, KB Blog, FourC Fitness, friends/family that are into fitness! It’s much easier to stay on track with guidance!
Do you need accountability to keep you on track? Check out these easy ways to incorporate it into your routine:

Track your meals with MyFitnessPal if you feel like you need to keep track or seek the advice of a nutritionist to help guide you.
Don’t go to extremes. Your body needs fuel to be able to smash your workouts. If you aren’t seeing progress, you may need to eat MORE! Conversely, too much exercise can put your body into stress mode, raising cortisol! Hold yourself accountable for your own health by looking at where you are and where you want to go and making realistic plans to get there!
Supplements aren’t for everybody, but sometimes you need a little extra help achieving your goals. First and foremost, look at your diet, you should be able to get all you need there. Next, look at vitamins and water intake.
Consider your pre/post workout meals/supplements, add Whey protein.
Hard core, you can try an intra-workout catalyst like Xtend or add a CLA to your diet. With anything, do plenty of research and/or consult your Doctor before hand! Message us with questions about what we take!
