Just log in

I have recently gone through a phase that the only thing I did on SP was log in daily. However, by doing that, I kept it going as a small whisper daily. Now, I am back on track again tracking food, etc. Bookmark it so it opens each time you log into your computer!

Buy in advance...

I was finding that when it came to dinner time, I really didnt fancy the salad or the stir fry so would always buy a less healthy option. But I've found that buying in advance helps. If I don't fancy salad one night, I'll buy it and leave it for the next night- knowing I wont want it to go to waste!

Sugar Cravings? Eat Jello

I've found that Jello pots are such a great way to push aside sugar cravings. I'm in the UK and Hartleys do -10 calorie pots. All the flavours are under 10 calories a pot and also have 0% sugar. They are real sweet though and also fill me up as a snack between meals!

Awake the Athlete

"All of us are athletes. Some of us are in training and some of us are not. Our job as a coach is to awaken the inner athlete." -Coach Rutherford

I remind myself that I am an athlete and listen to "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor. Cheesy but it works.

Find something you LOVE

It wasn't until I found something I absolutely loved (for me it was martial arts) that I could work out consistently without hating it.

It's you vs. you!

In this battle of losing weight, the fight is you vs. you. You determine how much effort you are going to put in it. You determine if you are going to eat healthy. So kick your butt in gear and go after your goal! Don't let you get in the way of you.

Preparing Food

I measure most everything I prepare. I think I know the amount, but really I am over filling that bowl of cereal for example...measuring works for me to keep me on track...
