Watch Jamie on Lifetime's "The Balancing Act"
Nearly all women struggle to find the time to eat the healthy way and work out. They also struggle to stay motivated. It can be tough to keep your health-and-fitness goals front of mind when life's responsibilities always seem to be distracting you. How can you stay focused and in charge?
FIRST, surround yourself with people who want you to succeed, and who will hold you to your goals. If you can't find supportive people at the gym, join an online support group like BodySpace. You can find others just like you, people with similar goals, similar challenges, and a desire to meet fitness friends and supporters. BodySpace even has a mobile app, so you can take your fitness friends with you everywhere!

SECOND, always carry a quality protein-based snack when you're on the go. If you fail to prepare, you prepare to fail. People think they only need to worry about getting enough protein in their diet if they're an athlete or trying to put on 'bulky' muscle. Not true! Everyone needs enough protein in their diet. Unfortunately, most people fall short of their dietary protein needs. Protein is crucial for your health for many reasons. One of the most important is that without enough of it in your diet, you'll tend to overeat and become hungry faster. Only Protein makes super-convenient, quick-mixing protein sticks that you can shake up right in your water bottle. Plus, they taste great, without artificial sweeteners. They work for everyone!
"Focus on improving your eating habits one day at a time. Whether the goal is to consume more protein or eliminate processed foods, making small improvements is a step in the right direction. With consistency, you will experience postive change that will hopefully inspire further improvements in quality of life, from exercise to personal relationships."
