    I’ll work on finding healthier ingredients to prepare meals because I love eating

    • Keeon Taylor

      Harry, that’s a great idea. Instead of giving up the foods you like why not try use healthier ingredients. In that way you don’t really give up the foods you like but get the added benefit of eating healthier.

    Thanks for the post…I have been taking it easy during the first few days of 2017. I am going to use #2 and #6 as my 2 ways to help me achieve my fitness goals.

    • Keeon Taylor

      The focus approach is always the best because it gives you a specific goal and eliminates all the distractions. Someone who commits to working out 3 times a week is better off than someone with a goal who only wants to lose weight. As for #6 when you work in the corporate world and you schedule meetings you usually keep it. If you schedule your workouts after work you are more likely to keep them as your body develops a rhythm. It’s the same with your workouts. It’s better to set a consistent time and stick to it as you feel off if you miss your workout.

    Happy 2017! Greetings from Florida!

      Hey Raph, greetings from Trinidad!

  • Bunny

    I like # 5 and 7. Its always motivating when you see the results of your hard work.
    Its also reassuring to know that one bad meal would not hurt.

      Hi Bunny, like I always tell my clients…don’t focus on the scale. If your clothes fit better and you look better then the scale does not matter. You can also enjoy the foods you like by using healthier ingredients. Some substitutes are cinnamon for sugar, Light-skinned sweet potatoes for fries, avocado for butter, wheat pasta for pasta

    #2 is really really helpful for me 😀

    • Keeon Taylor

      Yes Jo! It helps keep the focus. If someone can focus on exercising 3 times a week for 45 minutes each time for 3 months they are well on their way to seeing results. It’s not about joining a gym but it’s about finding consistency. It’s also about having a focus to direct your actions to keep you on track.

    So far so good…..#5-7 resonate….however #7 (in its literal sense)
    Lasr yr i tried the bland eating and realise it aint for me….so ive tried eating d regular home cooked stuff

    • Keeon Taylor

      Hey Carrie, home cooked meals are always best because you can control what ingredients you put in it. However, the key is using healthy ingredients. Bland eating is never fun because we all like to taste our food. Some healthy ways to spice up your foods are by using: fresh herbs, cinnamon, ginger, rosemary, cilantro, mint, vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, peppers and all the different combinations 🙂

  • Summer

    After reading all the seven ways to stick to it, I realized I do all just in more of motivating persons and sometimes neglecting myself, eg. half marathon want to finish in under three hours (haven’t done that yet) but I see someone struggling or wanting to give up, I will stay with that person. Number 7 for sure I need to work on a lot more

    • Keeon Taylor

      Hi Summer, that’s great that you motivate others. However, don’t neglect yourself. Grab some friends and take them along on the journey. You can train with someone who is interested in running…Number 7 sure is tough because we love to eat. The key is finding a balance and finding ways to prepare your favorite meals using healthier ingredients.

  • Racquel

    Need to find healthier ingredients.

    • Keeon Taylor

      Hi Raquel, you find fresh vegetables and fresh herbs and spices on the outside isles of your supermarket. You can also find them at your outdoor markets or flea markets. For your seasoning powder some include Turmeric, Rosemary, Basil, Cumin, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Saffron, Ginseng, Caradmom, Curry, Thyme, Cayenne Pepper, Oregano, Cilantro, Ginger and Parsley.

  • Great principles. I have had a workout buddy for over a year and we hold each other accountable and motivate each other to not miss our 5.00 a.m. workouts. Also, I invested in a freedom journal by John Lee Dumas. Health and Wellness will be my central focus for the next 100 days. This tool does a great job of helping to visualize and create SMART objectives to ensure this one goal is achieved.

    • Keeon Taylor

      Hey Kim! Nice that you have a workout buddy. I actually heard about the Freedom Journal about a year ago on a podcast by Pat Flynn of They also talked about the Pencil of Promises. I then heard Pencil of Promises pop up a few times on other podcasts. A good project.

  • Zita Germain

    hey , thanks for the great tips.. I’m going to try some of these rules as early as Monday , I’ve lost 25 kilos and have 10 more to go , with a friend were going to do this !

    • Keeon Taylor

      Nice Zita! That’s great that you’ve seen some results. Now with a support buddy anything’s possible.

  • Natalie Andrews

    Hi Keon. I really had to put some thought into this one. So I’m going to try to focus on 4,5 and 7. I really have to change my mindset and see it as doing something for myself. Scales are depressing, especially when you feel a bit lighter and the scale says something totally different. I also have to make healthier eating choices and stay away from cake for a while. Thanks for the tips.

    • Keeon Taylor

      Hey Natalie! #4 Mindset is extremely important. It determines our belief system and our actions. A scale only give a small piece of the picture. It only takes into account body weight and not fat loss. Most people are concerned about fat loss. A positive mindset will definitely help you stay on the right track.
