Sneaking in some movement during the work day.

I sit at my computer for much of the work day. To make sure I don't "zone out" I put pop up reminders on my calendar to remind me to get up a move, walk stretch, drink water, etc.

Just do it, turn up the SPARK!!!

On days that your spark is but a flicker, turn it up and do something new to get you going. We all have the power to control our mood, just step out and SPARK IT UP!!!

You can do it and get back on target

Save your skinny clothes!

Any time I gain a bunch of weight (I seriously am a 20 lb difference every summer to winter) I grab my old summer dresses and vow to fit back into them. Why buy new clothes when healthy eating and exercise will get you back into your old ones... for free?!

Better Fast Food Choices

I bought a fat/carb reference guide to help make better choices if I decided to treat myself to fast food. Just cause you think you are making good choices, you might be surprised by the numbers you are eating, especially the sodium levels in many items.

Every Little Bit

I try to work in as much extra movement in my day as I can. Waiting on lunch to heat in the microwave? Try some wall push-ups. Walking down the (empty) hallway? Lift your knees high or skip or walk backward. I even go up and down the stairs at the end of the hall every chance I get!

very low carb lunch idea

My boyfriend and I are on a low carb-high protein lifestyle, and we have a fantastic lunch idea which we do about 3x a week. We go to "Jimmy Johns" sub shop. They will make any of their sandwiches without the bread and wrapped in lettuce instead! It is minimal carbohydrates and healthy.

You Cannot Take It with You

When my sister died, everything she owned got thrown out or donated. It made me look at all my "stuff" in a new way. So now, I don't buy anything unless I truly need it. I wear out my clothes before buying anything new, if even then.

Visualising myself in a Bikini

I keep visualising myself in a bikini on holiday looking and feeling sexy and toned, I think this everytime I reach for nasty foods or want to stop exercising because its getting too hard.

Exercises while your brush your teeth & fix your hair

I try to do leg lifts when I'm standing there brushing my teeth, fixing my hair or washing dishes. You'd be surprise how many you can do even while put on make up.
