Time to get back on track.

A toad trip or visit to relatives for a few days can really shake up my routine. I want to be congenial so I eat what is served. The hard thing is to get back to my routine when I come home. First, it is important to eat a healthy breakfast and make sure to have healthy snacks in between meals. Don't allow yourself to get hungry and be tempted to reach for a munchies. I like to have some vegetable soup or a V8. An apple sliced with almond or peanut butter helps. emoticon

Sit on exercise ball instead of chair or couch!

Spend a few minutes, or even a hour or more, using your exercise ball in place of a chair or sofa. You use more muscles! I really enjoy doing this. I use an exercise ball (Swiss ball) while sitting at work, and at home, I'll deliberately pull the ball and use it to sit!

Curbing late night hunger

One of my goals is to not eat after 7pm, however I sometimes get hungry or want a snack about 9-9:30p. Instead of ice cream, cookies, etc I will have a glass of unsweetened coconut almond milk (45 calories) and sometimes add 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries or strawberries and ice and blend for a quick shake of less than 100 calories.

Half portions..

When I first lost weight 5 years ago, I didn't know about Spark at first and had a lot to lose, so I ate the same things, but cut each portion I'd usually eat in half. It was an easy way to cut calories since I was eating way too much. I lost 50 pounds that year. After I'd started losing that way, I added in exercise and started making better food choices too. It all adds up.

Stair break

For a quick exercise fix, I get out from behind my desk and do a few flights of stairs from the top (3rd floor) to the basement. This enables me to get exercise breaks in at work without returning to my desk all sweaty...always a good thing!

Chris Powell Easy Exercise!

I loved this advice from Chris Powell, he suggested do 10 minutes every day and when you feel comfortable add 5 more minutes and et cetera. You'd think I would've thought of that, but I didn't. lol emoticon

Turbo cleaning

Yup. I just up and set a timer for 15 minutes and go to a "hot spot" and clean like crazy. Love it and my house looks so much better! emoticon
