"GAINING NEW PERSPECTIVE"

I use my cell phone to take a picture of my plate, especially if I am eating alone. At times I am truly amazed at the amount of food I have on my plate & immediately divide it in half! At other times I am proud of the proportions and color range of food I have selected.

Walk and talk

I clock up a surprising number of steps every week - and so burn extra calories - by using a cordless phone and walking as I talk. As a bonus, this distracts me from snacking, I wear a pedometer and walk purposefully (although I don't count this as cardio).

Push Ups

I have a post note above my desk at work that says "Do 10 pushups." I do them every day. Eventually, I'll add more.

Graham Cracker rescue

When I need a cookie/sugar fix I substitute a graham cracker instead. I get the whole wheat flour and a sugar taste, without all the calories. A great snack is a little peanut butter on the cracker. Or low-fat ice cream in the middle of 2 crackers is an ice cream sandwich.

Every little bit helps!

I love getting up and being at the Gym when it opens at 5:30 in the morning. I workout for an hour and then head home to shower and get ready for work. I also take my SHAPE UPS to work with me and when the weather is nice, I'll walk for at least 15 minutes during my lunch. Works for me.
