Back in January, I posted a series on my other blog about the goal achievement process I use to accomplish many things throughout the year. I also highlighted some stories from people who’ve accomplished big goals in their life or business.
This process works for goals of all kinds and has helped me see progress from the beginning stages to the completed goal.
Here are all the links to this practical series:
Step 1: Assess and Clarify
Step 2: Plan and Take Action
Step 3: Break Barriers and Collect Small Success
Step 4: Reflect and Celebrate
What process do you go through when pursuing a goal?
OSC:Wellness brings you “quick tip” changes for healthier living. A more balanced sense of wellness can come One Small Change at a time.
This One Small Change tip is from Torey Armul, a Registered Dietitian and spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. She encourages us to plan ahead for better wellness.
Create a plan for what you’ll eat tomorrow, and when. Preparing and planning ahead is the key to success in any endeavor, including health and weight loss. Take a proactive role by creating a meal schedule, packing your foods ahead of time and setting personal reminders. Without a plan, it’s easy to lose track of your goals and lose control over your food environment (being surrounded by only unhealthy options, for example) and your appetite (going too long between meals builds the desire for unhealthy foods).

Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) Day is almost over, but that isn’t going to stop me from posting about it! 😉
Dietitians are food and nutrition experts who have at least a bachelor’s level education along with supervised training in multiple areas of dietetics, have passed a national exam, and participate in continuing education every year.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics posted about some of the things that a dietitian can do for you, including
- helping you understand food labels,
- giving you tips about eating for improved athletic performance,
- suggesting flavorful additions to make sure your healthy food isn’t boring food, and
- helping you figure out how to enjoyably treat yourself to special foods – without guilt or bingeing.
Dietitians also work in many other ways, including fighting for anti-hunger causes, researching nutrition treatments for diseases like cancers or heart disease, and working with farmers to help create sustainable food systems.
