There is a quote by Maya Angelou that I just love. She says, “When you know better, you do better.” According to her wise words, once we’ve learned something that will better our lives, we should act on it. I know from personal experience how difficult it can be to commit to the lifestyle changes that you know will enhance your life. I thought about this today when I decided to re-up my Weight Watchers membership. I like Weight Watchers because their program requires that you track your daily food intake using their PointsPlus system. Obviously I know the importance of tracking your food. In fact, I’ve posted about keeping food journals here before. So…since I know better, I really should do better, right?
Call me vain but Spring is upon us and it’s time to do better! I am re-committing to my weight loss goals and will be using Weight Watchers to help me reach them. Hell, if J-Hud can do it, so can I! My lovely mother is also the Captain of a “Walk Across Texas” team of 8 members. It’s week 3 of 8 and I’m going into high gear to meet my individual goal of 13 miles a week, to help reach our team goal of 830 miles – the distance across Texas. I’ll keep you posted on my progress but tell me…what are your health and fitness goals? What do you know better that you should do better?
