Tip of the day
Find a friend. Celebrity trainer Valerie Waters says you’re more likely to stay committed to your diet and exercise program if you have someone you have to be accountable to. (That’s partly why personal trainers are so popular.) If you can’t afford one, get a workout buddy. You’re likelier to stick with it if you have someone counting on you, and vice versa. And don’t hesitate to use the support you can find in online communities and forums, including Valerie’s Red Carpet Ready Club.
