Training your mind is a huge step for both healthy food choices & exercise. I found with exercise, blocking the excuses and mind chatter & just focussing on what your body CAN do enabled me to strech my goals far beyond my expectations (in a short period of time!)

Great Salad with less dressing

I figured out a trick a few years ago that makes salad dressing go much further. Put your bagged salad (or dried torn lettuce) in a ziploc bag, add dressing, seal and shake. The dressing ends up covering every part of the lettuce. Less is more!

Just One Minute More

Exercise one more minute, one more rep, one more set, one more _______ than you did yesterday. One more bus stop, one more lap.

On Day 1 if you exercise 10 mins, and you add one minute more each day up to Day 7, you will have exercised 91 cumulative minutes in days 1-7, instead of 70.
