How I stay motivated

Tuesday, May 12, 2009

I stay motivated by taking things one step and one day at a time. I don't look at it as losing weight by a certain amount of time. I look at it as taking care of myself and my health one day at time.


Saving money on groceries

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

I save money on groceries by doing a combination of things. I inventory what I have in the pantry, fridge, and freezer and plan meals for the week/month around what is available to us. Then I make a list of what we need to round out those meals or to make recipes I want to make that week. I also use coupons and check flyers for sale items of our common foods/needs. I don't usually shop every week. I find that we have been able to live off of what we already have in the house. I also find that when I do shop I don't always have to buy everything so stocking up on items within my budget is very easy.


Fast Break goals helped me to get motivated to a healthier lifestyle.

Tuesday, March 31, 2009

I feel much more motivated to choosing healthier options now than I did a couple of years ago. The Fast Break goals gave me a place to start without overwhelming me. I started with water and moving around (exercise) in smaller increments and then increased them with time. This took the "overwhelm" of changing my lifestyle and gave me the tools I needed to get to where I am now. Thanks Spark People. I believe anyone can use these tools to better their lives.
