Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away." Antoine de Saint-Exupery

If your loosing weight this week and you don't know why it is because you have hit perfection. Sometimes we keep adding to our workouts instead of just working a lot harder at our workouts leaving nothing on the table. Yes by all means add a new workout if you want but make sure you are ready to participate 100%.

Sometimes when we are trying to get our food in order to lose weight we add fruits and vegetables to our diets and eat more grains . Yes this is the right thing to do ,but we need to remember to cut something out, like less meat and snack food.

Sometimes when we are trying to get our eight hours of sleep in we retire earlier . Well we wake up just as tired and run down and wonder why. It is the quality that counts. Get all electronic devices out of your room keep it cool and inviting and if you have too keep the pets out.

Water is an essential part of weight loss. I was lacking on my water consumption until I found a bottled water with a bigger top. It was easier for the water to flow through and a few small ice cubes may fit in . Also make sure your warm cup has an easy flow so you can finish your coffee and tea faster so you can hit the water. This enables me to get my whole eight glasses in each and every day.

So remember you don't need to add to your weight loss routine you just need to make sure their is nothing else left to take away, Hugs my friends, We can do this.

    That's an interesting way to look at things. Not by adding more, but when nothing is left to take away - very interesting. So when we workout, we do so to the to the max, to where we can't add more to it, and our food plan is tidy - fresh and containing all the nutrients we need, and nothing that we don't - that is as close to perfection as our plan will get. Sounds reasonable! This is what I strive to achieve every day.

    Thanks for the inciteful blog! emoticon emoticon

    You Have a great way with words. Love the blog.
    I am so lucky to be able to sleep as soon as my head
    hits the pillow. I don't have any electrical devices
    in the bedroom. Good quality sleep is so important.
    Which reminds me that I have been sacrificing my
    sleep to spend ages on the PC. So as you said, give up
    something so I will now cut down on sitting so much.
    Sleep is also helpful to losing weight.
    Have a great week. emoticon

    I try to mix up my food and activity monthly so my body has to guess what is coming next. i find that i do not get bored or tired of the same routine if I change just a few things.
    Perfection is not achieved overnight it is a slow climb to the top and when we arrive we are surprised at how different things are emoticon
