Goal Setting

Rather than focusing only on the large picture--take the time to sit down and write down short term goals to help you reach your target weight, strive for them, and reward yourself when you reach them.

A Good Pedometer

I found a great pedometer that I can just stick inside a pocket and is still very accurate. It really motivates me to walk more (even if it's unnecessary) just so I can get my steps in. I do burn more calories that way.

Falling Off

If I start falling off and losing motivation, I gradually get myself into the game by going to the gym at least once a week and then going up one more day as the week progresses to I make it to 5 days.

Weighing Food Saves Me A Ton Of Money!

I have been amazed at how long a bottle of salad dressing lasts these days now that I measure the portion every time on my food scale. Meanwhile, although the cost of food has skyrocketed, I am convinced that food measuring has helped keep my grocery bills at pre-recession levels. Thanks, SP!!

Starting over when you slip

I have times when I slip, we all do. I ask the Lord to forgive me and give me the strength I need on this journey!! With the Lord on my/our side I/we can not fail! We will have slip ups, we are human. Get right back to eating healthy or exercising! YOU CAN DO IT!!!! Trust the Lord in ALL things!!

Scrubbing Bubbles

I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!! I have always used it in the bathroom but lately have been using it in the kitchen too (sink). It is amazing, cleans and shines all my metal surfaces and if I spray and let it sit the 5 mins, it takes up ANYTHING that is stuck in the sink. Makes everything look so clean!!

Bad day or week shouldnt cause failure

I had a really stressful week last week, I didnt eat as good as I should have but I didnt eat as bad as I use to. I was still somewhat mindful. I did execise even though it felt like torture. Usually it makes me feel better

Variety!

Try new foods, experiement with spices, discover fresh herbs, or even just change up your usual meal plans. I find I'm a lot more likely to start dreaming about a burger or nachos or something unhealthy if I'm bored with my food.
