Don't eat food you hate!

Just because something is good for you doesn't mean you have to like it! Why eat things you don't like just because they are "healthy"? It will just leave you resentful and more likely to binge. Experiment, find out what you like and then ENJOY eating!

Mix up machines

It gets pretty boring running 20-30 minutes on the treadmill, or any machine in that matter. I like to run around 10-15 minutes on the treadmill, stretch, bike for about 10-15 minutes, then elliptical for 10-15 minutes. I break up my cardio with strength training. Mixing it up makes it feel shorter!

Eating Healthy On a Vacation Day Trip

On a recent day trip to a fun theme park, I felt like I was going to have to succumb to all of the junk food during the day. Taking about 5 minutes to plan and take water to bring in with me, as well as small packets of raisins and sunflower seeds, and carrots saved the day.

Leftover salsa = easy Gazpacho!

Put leftover salsa (ie. from a party) in the blender with cucumber and some tomato soup or more tomatoes. It's delish---a spicier gazpacho, but not hot at all.

Eat at least one fruit or veggie at every meal.

Raw fruits and veggies (or cooked veggies without oil) are full of water and fiber and fill me up so that I don't eat as many calories.
