Small change #2: Store less healthy foods out of sight. When you come into your kitchen or dining room, you should not be able to spy chips, candy, cake, etc. Store them in the pantry, drawers, etc. Instead, place healthier choices -- such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains (bread, not too fatty, not too sugary crackers or bars), etc. out on the counter or in the front of the fridge.
The other day I was thinking about the importance of small change. We like to think big, and I like that. But we make the mistake of thinking that big changes will get us there faster. That may be true of some things, but when you're changing your diet and/or exercise and your health, you are trying to change your habits -- and that takes time.
