2. Tuesday is about Timing
Make sure you find the best time to exercise. If you are an early riser, workout early, or if you find you have the most energy in the evening, opt for a PM fitness session. Find what works best for your exercise time. As for food, also set a schedule of eating every 2-3 hours. If you are on a healthy eating schedule you will program yourself to not have unhealthy cravings.
3. Don’t Be a Wimp Wednesday

You feel incredible pain as you push through a weight training session or a run and when it is complete you are in ecstasy! So today, as part of your weight loss steps I want you to push yourself in your workout a bit further by running longer or biking harder. Reach your inner athlete!

Pay it forward today and share your weight loss goals with a friend or family member. By sharing your goal you are now accountable to someone other than yourself. You may also motivate them to start their own weight loss program and better their health!
5. Friday is Time to Accept How Fabulous You Really Are
Understand that there may be some things about yourself you cannot change. Maybe no matter what exercise you do, you still seem to harbor more weight in your rear. Accept your body and learn to love it. You can tone and lose weight but do you love yourself? Learn to embrace who you are. This is a huge step in the weight loss process!
6. Saturday is about Savoring Your Family
Honor your family and savor the day by getting outdoors for an activity. You can head to the park for a game of volleyball, Frisbee or reach your inner child and fly a kite. Weight loss is about both the betterment of your physical and mental health.
