Turkey Burgers

If you are new to low fat cooking, and think "turkey burgers" is an oxymoron; Take courage! Use your spice rack and be creative. When my husband and I first tried Turkey Burgers, we used soy sauce. If you need to go low sodium, a good substitute is sesame oil-- absolutely no sodium and good value!

I have a book just for when I go to the gym. Reading a book during exercsie on gym machines has distracted me from how long I have left. It also motivates me to exercise everyday because I want to know what happens next.

Flash Card Fun

Since I needed to make flash cards for law school, I added a few of my own. Interspersed on the random, brightly colored cards there are *other* reminders.

"MOVE THE REAR-GET IN GEAR-MOVE IT-MOVE IT-MOVE IT!!!"

The reminders help me to remember to get up and move during study time!

Doing the math

When my weight loss slows down and I start to get discouraged, I pull out my calculator. There are 3500 calories in a pound, so even a loss of a pound means a lot of calories burned or not eaten. It helps keep me on track.
