Clay’s Tips on Living a Healthy Life

1. Take Responsibility For Your Life. You can not start to Live Your List and lose weight until you decide to take ownership of your actions, strengths, and even failures. Most importantly you are responsible for your reaction to life’s adversities and curveballs.

2. Set SMART Goals. If you are currently unhealthy, you have to start putting goals into action. SMART goals are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound. Each goal should be reviewed often to achieve success.

3. Six packs aren’t made in the gym, they are made in the kitchen. IYou can’t out-train or outrun fast food. On the flip side, you can eat well and walk the dog and lose or maintain weight.

4. Break the bad food routine. Eat an eclectic diet and find the things you like to eat that are healthy, and you don’t have to force yourself into a new terrible diet.

5. You have to make a lifestyle change. It just doesn’t happen over night, and it takes months if not years to be healthy. Change your mentality and don’t give up.
