    What to do: This week, make your diet/fitness goals more social, by including others as much as you can.

    If you're working your way towards a healthier lifestyle, you don't have to do it alone. In fact, by including others in your journey you may gain an important social network that can offer support and accountability. So, this week's challenge is to make your goals more social.

    Here are some ways to find and give support:

    1. Invite a friend to join SlimKicker.

    If you know someone who is wants to lead a healthier life, invite them to join SlimKicker. See if a little extra competition can help the both of you.

    2. Look For a workout buddy.

    By committing to work out with someone, you'll be less likely to skip the gym; and more likely to stick to your plan.

    3. Cook something healthy for someone, or with someone.

    4. Join a club.

    If you enjoy running, contact other runners. You may find there are many groups in your community at all different levels.

    5. Take a class.

    Are your cooking skills less than stellar? Sign up for a local class in your community or ask a friend to teach you a few techniques. You'll learn some new skills and meet people that have the same interests as you.

    6. Start a conversation with a stranger.

    If you notice that someone frequents the gym at the same time as you, don't be scared to say hello. You might make a new friend who shares similar experiences and goals as you.

    7. Choose activities that don't revolve around food

    Food is a very social thing. We celebrate with food; attempt to fix our feelings with food; and even bond over food. Instead of getting together with friends at a restaurant, try meeting them at a park, inviting them to a dance, or sign up for a sports league.

    So this week make it a point to get out there... and make your goals more social! Whether it's to help motivate you, or to pay it forward, and help others you know live a healthier lifestyle.

  • Justine 3054 days ago
    Today I spoke to a colleague about the fantastic book 'On Eating' (www.amazon.com/Susie-Orbach-Eating/dp/0141007516/) which is about how to learn to eat with your hunger, and to enjoy food. Susie Orbach (you may know her name from the famous book 'Fat is a Feminist Issue') thinks that we should eat like we go to the bathroom - learning to just follow our body's signals about what it wants and when, instead of trying to count things and make rules about what is 'ok' to want.

    I plan to get a few copies of the book to give to people.
