we have a hard time losing weight in my family!
Use an exercise ball to do crunches on during commercials. You can do different types of crunches during different commercials, then balance on the ball during your TV show. I can do at least four different sets during a typical show.
I find it motivational to talk to other people in the gym. They have good ideas and help push me when working out on the Elliptical, Treadmill, Bike or involved in taking fitness classes. I workout at the gym at work and it has close to 500 members (4000+on campus) & 3 staff that really motivate me.
Whenever I think about giving up I think about my husband and son. I want to be able to enjoy everyday with them and not be burdened down by my weight. I want to hike trails with my husband and play ball with my little boy. I won't give up because I want to enjoy the life God has given me.
avoid,cereals,pasta's and breads..eat more fruits and vegetables..it is not the table sugar that gets us..it is the hidden sugars in our prepackaged food...check everything.
earlier this morning i read a blog from one of the participants in spark diet and i told her what i do each a.m. - "as important as my children are to me - i am equally important to them" say it like you mean it and you will begin to make yourself a priority also. even on the bad days :)
PRAY TO GOD AND HAVE FAITH... He will get you through.
don't expect a "genie" god to grant every prayer when prayed... be patient... it will happen in God's time... in God's way. HE knows what is best for YOU.
I went to wal-mart and bought a 2.2l h20 on the go bottle that holds 8 glasses of water! I think it cost 2 dollars and i don't like water so i put a can of diet rite orange pop in it and filled it up with water! Taste better than plain water and i don't dread drinking it so bad!
Now that you've hit the weight you'd like to maintain, be sure you watch your portions. When eating out or at those family dinners where someone fills your plate for you- make sure you aren't eating more than you want to eat. Don't be afraid to make 2-3 meals out of "one", you'll be glad you did!
