Step 1: Set goals and identify rewards
On this assignment, I choose to focus on changing the way I eat the reason why I’m focusing on this topic is that diabetes runs in my family my mom, uncle, and grandfather has diabetes. We are focusing to change the way we eat I sat down with my family and told them that we need to start eating healthier. Also, I am wary about changing my eating routine since I have become used to eating or drinking similar sustenances, and this is a dread to take a stab at something new in light of the fact that I am accustomed to eating similar stuff. One of the initial moves toward vanquishing awful dietary patterns is giving careful consideration to what I’m eating and drinking.
Read sustenance marks, get comfortable with arrangements of fixings, and begin to pay attention to what I put in my mouth. When I turn out to be more mindful of what I’m eating, I begin to acknowledge how I have to enhance my eating regimen. I Plan to take a bit of fruit to class each day for a snack, stock up on grain and natural product for fast morning meals, and go to the rec center after my classes three times each week. To state I will work out additional,won’t encourage me. What will help is thinking about when and how you can fit it into your way of life. I will likely eat more vegetables, I need to reveal to myself I’ll attempt one new veggie every week until the point when I discover some I truly appreciate.
I search for simple approaches to include one all the more serving of vegetables to my eating regimen every week until the point that I achieve my objective. The reason why I haven’t change this behavior in the past because I wasn’t caring about my health or how and what I was eating, and then when I found out my mom had diabetes it made me think like what am I’m doing why I’m eating so bad like I had a whole new perspective on eating better.

Step 3: Redefine your goal and develop an action plan
My revised goal is to make better food choices and watch how I’m eating as like food portions. I will buy nourishments that come straightforwardly from nature and are insignificantly handled. This incorporates plants, natural products, meats, nuts, and so on. It bars things like refined grains and sugars, or nourishment that have fixings that I can’t articulate. Genuine sustenances areas near their normal state as could reasonably be expected.
Reward yourself: It is an incredible plan to compensate myself for accomplishing my objectives. It will give me something unmistakable to anticipate. It is ideal if the reward is something I just get in the event that I finish my objective. I will make sure I won’t use my reward as a cheat day to get myself fast food, I’ll actually be wise I will use my reward to spend extra time with my friends, a hobby that I wanted to do or an activity that keeps me active.

Step 4: Implement your behavior change plan
Day 1-2: 10/2 3:00 pm In spite of the fact that perceiving exercise as an imperative sign is a positive development for solid conduct change, there is still work to be finished. I had to keep reminding myself that I can’t eat certain things, my friend Niecy decided to go on this journey with me and together we kept each other motivated. We had a set schedule on when we would go to the gym so every Tuesday and Thursday at 7:00 pm we were in the gym. 10/5 4:00 pm after I was done with class I went to Niecy room and we made a list on what should we eat and not eat. It was hard for me to give up the foods that I loved but knew doing this thing would benefit me in the future.
Day3-4: 10/10 6:00 am one approach to draw in people in enhancing their well-being is to demonstrate to them how solid conduct changes can be significant supporters of averting or postponing the beginning of an infection or individual damage. Today I got up super early brush my teeth and went for a morning run with Niecy it was so refreshing I think going for a run is better than going to the gym. Later on that, we didn’t go to the gym but we maintain to exercise in our room. 10/11 5:00 pm I was taking a nap and I heard a knock on the door it was Niecy she was telling me to get up so we can go to the gym then go eat. I wasn’t feeling it I just wanted to stay in my bed and go to sleep I felt lazy, but I had to remember that I should never give up so I got up and went to the gym.
Day5: 10/12 12:00 am me and Niecy went for a midnight walk to quick check. She attempted to buy junk food and I told her no because if your on this journey with me then you have to follow the rules I also told her how she made that list but didn’t follow the list rules we said no junk food. so I made her buy grapes, crackers, and cheese. then when we came back from quick check we went for a midnight run.
Step 5: Evaluate your progress
Yes, I did reach the goals I had to concentrate on little strides to receive more beneficial, deep-rooted propensities. Remember that everyday decisions impact whether you keep up imperativeness while you age or create wellbeing conditions. Change may appear to be intense at first, yet with help, assurance and these tips, you can be beautiful. It made me feel accomplished that I reached my goals because I was on the edge of giving up but I knew that I could do it so I continued until I got to the finish line and I did a great job. The difference that I noticed in my life as I lost a little weight and I was eating much healthier than before, I track down the stuff I’m eating I write it in my little journal. I go to the gym every 3days a week and when I go up the stairs I don’t get tired. I think I’ll be able to maintain this change even though it was hard because I had to give up the foods I normally eat I use to eat fast food every 2 weeks but now I barely eat fast food I really loved popeyes but now I can’t stand it I hate the same of it.
My plan is still ongoing I go to the gym every day after class I maintain to eat healthier I pick better choices of food I’m still working on getting up every morning to go running but I will change that. I will this process will be going on for another month because I love the result that I have this project made me have a better perspective on eating better I sit back and think wow I was really eating this food that isn’t really food it was just really nasty I actually watch a video on how they made hotdogs and that was very disgusting. The thing that changed in my life was exercising more, when I was younger I never use to want to exercise I didn’t even participate in gym class because I was too lazy to do the activities and my gym teacher told me if I don’t participate I was going to fail the class in my head I was like nobody feels gym class but I got serious because I use to get tired after going up one flight of stairs. Yes, I felt like I reached my goals but I knew I could’ve done better, in the future I would like to continue this so when I get a family over my own they could do this too.
