Spike your water

A few times a day I squirt about 1/2 ounce of fresh lemon juice into my water. It's very refreshing - like fresh lemonade without the sugar.

Multitasking while working out

I spend a lot of my time in my living room whether it's for studying, watching tv, listening to music or whatever. So overtime My workout tools just end up there which works perfectly. Recently I pulled my Malibu Pilates machine right in front of the TV. A great Reminder to workout

Butter & Margarine

I don't put any butter or margarine on my sandwich or toast if I'm putting something else on/in it such as jam, cheese, egg, ham etc. I can't tell the difference and save myself quite a few calories.

Planning ahead

I plan all my food for the week and cook it on the weekends. That way I am not tempted at work to order out with others in the office. It also frees up more time to work out as I don't have to cook everyday.

To Maintain

Realizing the 80/20 rule applies to eating the rest of your life. If you eat right 80% of the time, be it daily or meals, you can splurge 20% of the time and maintain a healthy life style and weight.

Microwave and exercise

Sometimes when I put something into the microwave I use the time before it is done to do a short burst of exercise. Jumping jacks, steping up and down on the stairs, kitchen counter push-ups.....whatever. When the bell rings the food is done and I have fit a little more exercise into my day!

Emergency fund

Have an Emergency fund of 1000.00 so when the emergency hits you do not have to use a credit card. This give peace of mind. Save a little every check till you get this. I learned this from Dave Ramsey (just love his info)
