To make it just a little easier...

Don't think of exercising as something you HAVE to do, but something you WANT to do. I don't HAVE to do 15 minutes on the elliptical tonight and 15 minutes on the treadmill. I WANT to do them!!

fiber one bars

they are so goooood!! that it is easy to eat more than one but if u do that, u will definitely be paying for it later! so u might want to make sure u actually only stick to one or your stomach will be hurting later! Good note so that u don't overdo it!

Travel Smart and Healthy

Airport walking is a great way to squeeze in exercise when flying. Whenever I find myself with a 2 hour layover I make sure to spend at least an hour of that time walking laps around the airport. You can window-shop and people-watch just like when you're mall walking.

Fage Authentic Greek Yogurt

Pronounced (fa Yeh)
On first try, I thought this yogurt was terrible. After a second try, I have to say I am addicted. It is not sweet at all, it reminds me of cottage cheese, but totally smooth and very creamy. The Fage with the honey, strawberry, or peach on the side is perfection in a cup.

Save Money on Your Berries!

I always have sweet berries (blueberries, strawberries, blackberries) at my house. When there's a great sale on them, I buy as many packs as I can pedal home on my bike.

Open Faced Sandwiches

Eat open faced sandwiches instead of using two pieces of bread. It is actually tastier because you don't have bread in the way of your fillings and you cut down on the extra calories of the extra piece of bread.

Learn One Thing at a Time, and Don't Give Up!

When I started SP, it was overwhelming to me, mostly in the tracking area. I felt lost and nearly quit until I decided to ask for help! There are so many things to learn at first, but once you learn it, it stays with you and becomes so much easier!

Small Steps

Small steps work better for long term changes than leaps. It keeps you from being overwhelmed and makes the changes manageable. Be the tortoise, not the hare.

Pre-portioning Nuts

I buy large bags of raw nuts at bulk discount stores then roast them myself at home to control the amount of oil and salt added. Then I can divide them into little containers that hold about an ounce, making it easy to grab the little snacks on the go with an apple or other fruit.

Dust Yourself Off...

There are a lot of people that say "Don't let the stress in your life derail you" - but the truth is - sometimes it just does.
When this happens - you can either let it keep you down - or you can pick yourself up - dust yourself off - and come back stronger than ever. What are you going to do?
