Dipping Isn't Just for Salad Dressing Anymore

Most of us have heard the tip to dip our fork into the salad dressing instead of pouring it on. I have started to use the same trick for syrup on pancakes/waffles and sauces (cheese etc) on vegetables. It gets the taste where you want it, you'll use way less...and your pancakes don't get soggy!!

Do it for safety!

If you join a Martial Arts Class (an actual Martial Art not a Martial Activity!) you burn a lot of calories and learn to defend yourself as well. It doesn't matter how old you are or how much you weigh, its always a good idea to know how to protect yourself from attackers.

Bike Commuting

I know I already told everybody about running errands with your bike, but lately I've started commuting with my bike, and I am amazed with the results. Not only I get my exercise done, but I also save and average of 40 dollars a month, just in gas!!!

Drink Iced Coffee

If you're like me a good latte is one of those things that you look forward to. Switch your hot latte for an iced to shave 20-60 calories off your indulgence. It's also a sweeter treat for the summer months! Nothing better than an iced coffee with friends in the bright sunshine!

But I Don't Wanna!

Exercise is the key to feeling great. We all know that, but some days, we just don't feel motivated to move AT ALL. My trick, on those days, is to do at least the warm-up portion of the DVD, walking/running program, etc. Stop after that if you want, but I bet you won't!!

Going to class

Since my step daughter joined my water workout class, she has encouraged me to attend more regularly. My friends in the class keep me going once I'm there, but SD gets me in the door!
