In no particular order activities that help me avoid gaining weight during stressful events.
1) Support from friends and family.
2) Logging on to Spark People daily.
3) Faith that every day I am succeeding in increments.
4) Eating a hearty salad with protein
5) Freezing 1/4 cup of juice in bottom of water bottle then adding water over the frozen juice. Yummm....I drink more water that way.
6) Walking Buddy The Dog every evening.
7) Visualizing cravings as little beasts. Telling them "no" they may not have sugar. That way I do not feel deprived.
8) Decluttering house. It's uplifting and fights cravings.
9) Gardening
10) Enjoying the sunshine.
11) Hearty vegetable and bean soup in a rainbow of colors.
12) Eliminating most wheat products from diet.
13) Juicing greens and mixing them in an organic protein slushy. Healthy sub for sugar and wheat snacks.
14) Yoga at the gym and in two minute increments around the house.
15) Water walking with good friend at the pool.

    emoticon Have a great day and keep up the good work!!

    Sometimes we think we've failed because life didn't go as planned. We put too much emphasis on what might have been instead of what we've achieved to get this far. And just as setbacks can be catalysts for learning; victories can be catalysts to keep us moving forward. Celebrate each victory because in the whole sense of the word, a-Victory-is-a-Victory and an integral part of our journey that needs acknowledgement no matter how small. It's part of what we're made of, and we are made to be Victorious!
