Count your calories. If you out spend your income, you go into debt. If you eat more than your body needs, you gain weight. 5 minutes of simple math can change your life. If you need help learning how to count calories check out my blog post on counting calories. I great app to help aid in counting calories is MyFitnessPal.
Move. Are you working on your sit-ness or your fitness? If you work at a desk use half of your lunch to walk. Join an exercise class. Take the dog for a walk. Engage in exercise during commercials on T.V. Ride your bike. Use your body to produce motion and you will feel better, sleep better, and find a higher level of fitness. Need more ideas? Check out Healthy Texas Week- Move It Monday.
Purge the Processed. Dump it in the trash. Momma always said, "It looks better in the trash than it does on you." She was right...like usual. Instead, purchase produce (fruits & vegetables), buy lean meats from the fish, meat, or deli counters. Shop for food that is not processed or minimally processed. Less than 5 ingredients. If it contains an ingredient you can't read or isn't real it isn't worth buying. Pretty much avoid everything in the middle of the grocery store. Stick to the outside. Try living processed food free for 2 weeks and witness the change in your health and fitness.
