Planning meals & eating more frequently

It has really helped me to plan my meals in advance and pack food to being with me to work. I eat 4 - 6 smaller meals thoughout the day rather than just a big lunch and dinner. The benefits? More control with my bs & successful weightloss!

Western Bagel Alternative Bagels

I so, so, so LOVE these bagels! Just 110 calories, lots of fiber and they taste GREAT! I save enough calories that I splurge on full-fat whipped cream cheese to go with them! (sometimes with some chopped strawberries and nuts and a little honey! mmmm!!)

Acknowledge the slip-up and move on by focusing on what you're doing right

I cannot dwell on my slip-ups, I have too many. Instead, when I eat what I know I shouldn't, I acknowledge it and instead of feeling guilty and beating myself up, I focus on what I am doing right and then make the decision that the next thing I eat will be a healthy choice.

Before bedtime

Before going to bed I make a list of everything I want or need to do the next day. I then check it off as i'm done doing it. This way you don't forget anything and don't put it off.

Ants in the kitchen?

Put a little dish soap into a spray bottle and go after them - kills instantly without poison. Does not keep them from returning, but keeps poison away from food area.

Tricking myself

Some days when I do not have the energy to do my cardio/exercise bike I tell myself at least do 10 minutes. Then it turns out once I get the first 10 minutes out of the way I can finish my daily goal even if I have to say to myself "just 1 minute more"

Green Tea

Drinking lots of water is not one of my strong points, but I do find that drinking diet green tea with citrus (I get mine at Costco) helps to keep my weight going down.
