Daily destressing vitally important!

emoticon most people come home with some degree of stress @ the end of their day. I've found that it is just as important to destress from your day as it is to breathe. My way is to watch my aquarium for 20 minutes without any outside interference and spa music playing - very effective!

Eating Right Portions when I eat out

I cut all my portions in half. No matter what the portion is I only eat half of what I get except for Vegetables!

No Rules

I'm one of those people who somehow must find a way around every rule. The more I am not supposed to do something the more I want to do it. That mindset goes triple for food. So I don't have food rules. I eat what I want as long as I'm not allergic to it.

i walk alone

so often we are told to have a walking buddy, to make it fun, but for me, i stay more motivated if i walk alone, i cant walk and talk without getting winded faster, so its better for me to walk alone

Permission to Fail, Not to Quit

I am going to have good and bad days. I do not flog myself over every little misstep, but I also know that giving up is not an option and accountability is key. I note where I fail (and my responsibility in that failure) and make a measurable plan to help avoid that situation in the future.

The past doesn't determine the future

This thought is the key for me getting back up and trying again. It's so easy to feel like I've failed, I'm a failure, and I'll never be able to keep up good work, but it's not true. Just because I've had a bad day, week, month... doesn't mean today or tomorrow will be bad, too.

Menu Planning

Utilize the sales ad with coupons (many websites already figure it up for you) Then plan your menu based on the sales and what is already in the pantry. We usually know a week at the time what we will be eating. It helps with shopping, saves time in the evenings, and saves money!

Buddy System

I've been making a lot of friends who are also into fitness so instead of making dinner plans ... I've been making running dates for the weekends :)
