Switching up routes

Sometimes running the same route can become monotonous and therefore not as exciting. Every so often I map out a different route ahead of time and so then I'm actually excited to try it out.

Accurate Calorie Target

Looking back on it, one time my attempt to lose weight failed because I chose a plan that simply had too many calories for me. SparkPeople nutrition tracker will ensure you have an effective calorie target.

Early Workout

I try to work out firstthing when I wake up. I eat a piece of fruit to keep my sugar up and then head to the gym. I read that this helps because you are burning more fat and not something that you ate earlier in the day

Slow and Steady

I read the fable of the Tortoise and the Hare today.
The old moral still rings true today; slow and steady wins the race.

Wearing the Garmin Heart Monitor helps motivate me!

My hubby purchased a Garmin heart monitor that has a band you wear under your shirt around your chest and a wrist monitor that you activate{after plugging it in for at least an hour}.Then it measures[ besides heart rate] calories burned for whatever activity you list-walk,run or bike{our uses}.

stay busy

Even if you dont get around to going to the gym, Stay busy and active & you still burn mad calories. This I didnt know until I started tracking my nutrition and fitness on sparkpeople. Ive burned more calories in 45 minutes of yard work than 2 days at the gym. I love yard work now! emoticon
