Here is a little motivational "pep talk" for you today! You can cut calories with little effort. You don't have to starve yourself to cut calories and fat from your diet. Simple changes are all it requires. Eating healthy foods and exercising is the key to maintaining a healthy body weight. It doesn't require as much change as you would think. Here are easy ways to eat better and save on fat and calories in the process.
* Eat lean protein at every meal. Protein helps the body to feel full longer. It also requires more energy to break down during digestion. Good sources of protein include chicken, tuna, soybeans, and very lean meats. Keep your portion control limited to about 3 to 4 ounces.
* Create your own snack packs. Instead of purchasing perceived low-calorie snack packs, make your own. That's because those retail varieties tend to be sugary and not very filling, potentially causing you to eat more. Fill up baggies with a blend of nuts, dried fruit and dark chocolate chips for a filling, tasty and relatively nutritious snack.

Hi. My name is Ronna, and I am also a single mom. I have 2 children (6&11) and have 100% custody. Fortunately, I am a teacher so have summers with my children (though I probably will need to start working summers next year). I leave for work at 6:45 am, and usually don't get home until 5:00 or 5:30 during the school year, so I feel your pain. I struggle making time to work out as well, so maybe we can put our heads together and make a plan. I found an article on the spark site about "sparking to a 5K", and that is where I am starting. I am very excited. Your baby is an angel! Also, I will be turning 40 in Nov. and that a big part of my motivation. I want to get fit before it gets any harder 3216 days ago
