Do you you notice how cruddy you feel if you do not get good nutrition? I sure do, and I often wonder how people can live off hot dogs and potato chips. I have a friend who is obese and that is all she eats. NO wonder she is depressed all the time.

Never neglect good nutrition. It's easy to just focus on your workout when you're trying to burn calories, build muscle and reshape your body. But working out is one part of the equation; what you eat (and drink) before and after your exercise session is also important.

Before your workout, make sure you're well hydrated. Nearly every study available conclusively shows that exercising when dehydrated will impair your performance. Before your workout have a small snack.

After you finish, make sure to take refuel your muscles (to prepare them for future workouts) by eating the right amount of food within 30-90 minutes. Studies also show that the right post-workout meal (or snack) will replenish your glycogen stores more quickly and shorten recovery time—two factors that can help you achieve optimum results.

There are only two options regarding commitment. You're either IN or you're OUT. There's no such thing as life in-between.

- Pat Riley, basketball coach


Stay motivated and consistent and you will reach your goals. Don't let one day or a slip throw you off track!

When you get up in the morning, look at yourself in the mirror, smile and say, baby, you look hot this morning. Gets your day started right. emoticon

If you mess up don’t beat yourself up. You need to forgive, forget and keep going.

Run when you can, walk when you have to; crawl if you must just never give up............ My motto for life

I have a dry erase calendar hanging in my basement exercise area. I record all my exercise on it and review it at the end of the month, checking for consistency, if I need to make any changes and setting goals for the next month.

Learn the uses of herbs and spices so you can cut out the salt. Olive oil instead of butter. I sometimes put it on my toast, different but tasty.

Keep measuring cups and spoons handy until you know
what a portion size looks like. A small kitchen scale helps, too!

I use a smaller plate (we used to call them salad plates) for all my meals. Looks like my plate is full (which it is) and I don't want/need to go for seconds. I thing this is partly a mind "game", but it works.
