6. Get a Buddy for Support.
Everything is better when you do it with someone else including changing bad habits to good ones. Find someone in your life, a friend at work or a spouse, perhaps, that wants to get healthy by your side. This means you have someone to talk to, compete against and who will encourage you when you feel like quitting.
7. Keep a Journal.
Whether it’s a personal blog or notebook you stuff in your pocket, get in the habit of writing things down. Keep track of everything you eat, your daily calories, how much water you drink and your exercise for the day. Use the journal to document your successes and frustrations, as well.
