Exercise at restroom break

Each time I use the restroom at work. I do 10 windmills before leaving. Arms out even with shoulders. Bend at waist and try touching right foot with left hand. Then arms up even with shoulders and bend try touching left foot with right hand.

measuring.

1/2 tbls of peanut butter tastes just as good as a shole one. however, 1/2 the calories. Never thought I'd say that emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I hate to exercise!

And because I do, I've found that measuring the pleasure value of something tempting against the pain value of the time it will take to work it off on the treadmill or recumbent bike (as in, "Is this really WORTH half an hour on the treadmill?") really helps me say no to most no-nos. emoticon emoticon

Jazz Up Your Smoothie

Try adding a few baby spinach leaves, (you don't even taste it) and a teaspoon or 2 of Flax seed to your smoothie. It's a easy and delicious way to add nutrition and fiber to your daily requirements.

With me everywhere!

One sneaky way I have found to keep exercise on my mind is to keep a resistance band folded in my purse. That way no matter where I am I can utilize them. This comes in handy when sitting in the car (as a passenger)!

getting extra coupons

I find that when there's a product I really like, I write to the company and tell them how much I like the product and they usually send back a coupon for a free product or a $1.00 or .50 cents off it. Anything helps and if I buy that product then its cheaper.

One step at a time

Whether it be putting one foot in front of the other, eating one healthy item at time or drinking one glass of water. It's these first step you take that will lead you to a new you. Be proud of each step no matter how big or small!

Develop A Positive Attitude

I see the positive side of all circumstances and situations. Being positive won't prevent problems from occurring but will lessen their effect on us. Always believe in yourself and trust that things WILL work out for the better.

Rejoice in the progress

Some days we just need to congratulate ourselves on how far we've come. there aren't a lot of outward signs of our diet yet. we aren't even close to where we hope to be. we still have a long way to go. That's okay. we need to rejoice in the progress we've made

Music is a great motivator

I have a music work out playlist. It plays all the songs, from my pop music phase, along with Broadway musicals. Songs, that I can sing along with while I am working out. That way, when I can't do the exercise on the tape I can dance to the music to keep moving.
