If you are to reach your fitness goals, you’ll need to learn, grow and practice. In that spirit, pick one, two or all three of these assignments to experiment with this week.
F: Fix and eat a vegetarian meal one or more times this week, and replace white rice with brown rice. Researchers report that simply replacing white rice with brown rice reduces the risk of diabetes by one-third.
I: Introduce a new form of exercise into your routine. Without making a long-term commitment, decide to try something new and invite a friend to join you. Approach the exercise with an open mind—you are just going to see if you like it.
T: Target the one habit that most undermines your fitness and weight loss goals. Examine the habit in detail. Once you get the habit under your microscope, decide how to modify, abandon or replace the habit with a healthier one.
If none of these assignments appeals to you, create your own list. Improvising is always encouraged. Whatever you do, begin and then continue.
