Motivational Moment with Meryl Brandwein

Achieving your life-changing nutritional goals isn’t easy and won’t happen overnight.  Success is not a race, be patient. One of the most challenging parts of a successful journey is maintaining your momentum… you must start strong and finish strong.  It’s important to summon the energy you’ll need to keep moving towards your goal.

Here’s how!!! Set small, measurable, goals that’ll help you get to your OVERALL larger goal. Try setting weekly targets for yourself – adjust when necessary- but keep your eye on the prize! Also, try keeping a food and exercise journal…  track how much you’re eating – sometimes you don’t realize how those small bites can add up.

Create accountability! Enlist the support of your friends and family. Having a support network is critical to your progress and success. Keep nutritious foods on hand and ready to eat. Preparation is the key! Having fresh vegetables and fruits, lean protein, healthy fats and smart carbs each week is the best way staying on track.

So if you – like our amazing Mission Makeover ladies – have set goals and are on your way to making a change, congratulations!  Our contestants have been working hard, changing their diets, learning, and opening their minds. Our core four may be coming to the end of the show’s journey, but the race is still being run!

Eat clean, Live strong!
