Buying only healthy foods, 8+ glasses of water each day, exercising (at least walking) daily, eating at least one fresh fruit daily, and loading up on veggies!

Water intake steadily in the adequate to healthy zone - near always.

Balanced nutritional intake and mindful - usually.

Calorie output or the calorie burn steady and moderately high - usually.

Enjoying the cardio/aerobic and physical "work-outs" - usually.

Getting myself educated on many facets of this life changer and life-style change and maintain processes/procedures.

Attempting to have some positive influence with others that are making or wanting or might benefit some, from some changes also.

thinking before eating, no chewing fingernails, virtually NO soda, drinking tons of water, eating at least 1 fruit per day (this was a 3-4x/year habit for me before), 6x/week exercise, etc.

*I became a morning person!

*I take better care of myself, after bathing and dressing I now wear some jewellery like earrings every day, and a ring when I go out. Same with my house, I take good care of it cleaning and decorating, one room, one corner, at a time....

*I am actually cooking more now, even the treats that I eat in small amounts, and give away the rest to members of family...
*I don't procrastinate, I finish my "to do" list every day, and each day I come up with a new one....

*I am saving money by eating clean and healthy. Some people think it costs more to eat healthy, but it's the opposite when you plan and prepare your own meals, eat in moderation and don't buy unnecessary foods like chips, soda, cakes, mixed nuts, fast food or eat out all the time...not to mention when you have a vegetable garden...

1. Exercising. I still don't enjoy it ... or look forward to it ... but I do it anyway.
2. Paying attention to food labels and searching for the healthiest choices before I buy
3. Paying attention to what I eat each day ... calories, carbs, protein, fluid, etc. and using that information to guide my choices

I am not perfect with any of it. But these new habits are helping me move forward -- and that's a good thing.

Exercise is part of the day, routine now. I can eat anything but prefer healthy choices because I feel/function better for it. Portion control is automatic now, haven't over eaten in a long time.

1) Daily exercise (swim/bike/run/aerobics/strength/pilates/y
oga/ballet, etc.)
2) Drink water all day long, every day
3) eat small portions all day long. I don't have meals, I have snacks all day most days
4) Allow myself only 2-3 servings of treats per week (1/2 cup ice cream = 1 serving!)
5) changed my thinking about myself so that it is positive - reward small victories
6) learned to cook and enjoy eating vegetables
7) allow myself all of the fruit I want to eat
8) allow myself to throw out or give away food that I don't need
9) don't tell others how to eat and exercise for health unless they ask for advice

Definately that I think about what I am shoving in my mouth. Especially if "shoving" is going on. It used to be a bag of oreos, or a big bag of chips, or a bag of cookies. Now I like making fresh fruit smoothies and whole wheat pancakes with dark chocolate chips when my sweet tooth pops up.

Preparing healthy foods from scratch instead of just buying low cal convenience foods.
Going to the gym at least twice a week.
Finding things to do with my friends besides eat and drink.

This is a great topic; a nice way to focus on the positive!

Wanting to drink water
Choosing to be more active
Being aware of portion sizes and scaling it down

We all know our bad habits and can relate to them most of the time. Its good to point out the good habits weve created since the start of our journey. I think it also may help us to see how far we have or have not come. It would be inspiring to hear the changes others have made for the better:)
