Favorite Soap Opera 5 days a week... Treadmill 5 days a week...

I record All My Children every day. Then I use it for my distraction while I'm working out on my treadmill. As the drama unfolds and keeps my attention, I walk and/or jog. Using my remote to Fast Forward thru commercials means my workout lasts about 37-39 mins. I look forward to the workout.

The Change Jar

Every time you purchase something don't pay with exact change. Take the coins home and put them in a big jar. When it's all full deposit it in you savings account.

Make an appointment!

I run with my friends EVERY Tuesday and Thursday evening. With it being a commitment, other things have to be scheduled around this.

The Guiltless Couch Potato

When watching your favorite shows, instead of using the commercial time to grab a snack, use it to burn a few calories instead. Get down and do some crunches, push-up or raise your heart rate with some jumping jacks or butt kicks. Then, you won't feel guilty about watching a little TV.

Green tea before a snack

Every time I feel like I want to eat a snack I drink a cup of green tea, no sweetener. It gives me something positive to do, no calories and is healthy. It's a choice I can feel really good about. Then if I still feel like I want a snack I eat a piece of fruit.

Eating at work!

If I have an early start to my day, I try to remember to organize my lunch and snacks the night before and stick them all in a bag in the fridge so I can just grab it and go!
