Sometimes it is extremely hard to break the old habits and create new ones. That's never more true than when you're trying to take the first steps toward a healthier lifestyle. We all lead incredibly busy lives and it can be hard to recognize positive changes.

We live in a world with an extraordinary amount of information being flung at us 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It is extremely difficult and time consuming to keep track of all the things you need to keep track of, let alone all the new "changes" that you are trying to turn into habits. The smartest and the fastest way to get started is to start writing down everything you are doing for you every day. It really doesn't exist if you don't write it down.

Check out the video below -- it will only take 117 seconds of your day -- and then download Guru's Journal if you would like a template to get started. And, as always, hit me with any questions you might have at michael@fitnessgurunyc.com.

Rock on!
