Bodacious Cases wants a healthier America! Let us give you just a little push!
Tip 1- Keep pictures around you that contain either people or phrases that remind you of WHY you want to lose weight or get fit. It’s so important to know the “why” of goals. Is it so you can get off medication? Be there for your grandkids games? Just to push yourself? Whatever it is, make it a big “why” and then keep things around you to remind you of it. It helps you to stay on track when you feel like giving up. Maybe make the background on your phone a pic of that six pack you’re wanting or that bikini you want to wear this summer.
Tip 2- Surround yourself with other like-minded and positive people. Research shows that we are more likely to keep pushing when its hard if we don’t go it alone.

Zumba and Yoga are just two examples of what you can do!
