Find your love

Keep trying new exercises, aerobics, dance, zumba, cycling, until you find the one that you love. After searching for 10 years, I finally found mine AND THAT has made all the difference.

Keep the Kitchen a Safe Haven

I have been on the path to health long enough to know that if I have junk food around, I will eat junk food. The best way to stay on track is to have the refrigerator packed with healthy choices. I always have a bowl of fruit and ready to eat veggies on hand for the snack attacks.

Lazy Trick!

When I don't want to do something, I spend some time reading the "Woohoo!" section on the message boards, or the success stories, or these secrets. I find that after 15 minutes or so I'm going "Well, they can do it, I can too." And then I get up and do it.

Scallions

All our scallions are coming up now. I hate to buy them in the winter...expensive. I cut with scissors the scallions and lay them on a cookie sheet in the freezer for a few hours, then place them in a freezer bag. They can be washed if necessary before using them.

I used my label maker and printed out a small label I put on my credit and debit cards. Every time I use my card I have to make the decision "WANT/NEED"

How to Get Rid of Old Clothes

When you switch out your summer and winter clothese in your closet put the hangers on backwards. When you wear that item of clothing turn the hanger around the right way. That way you know what you have worn. At the end of the season get rid of anything that is still hung the wrong way.

Ask for what you need in the restaurant

If you need to have your dressing on the side, or your stir-fry done with broth instead of oil, etc. just ask for it!
Most restaurants are in the business of keeping their customers happy, and will comply with any reasonable request.

Personal Trainers

While at the gym, I often watch or 'sneak a peak' at what the personal trainers are doing with their clients. They rarely use the machines/cardio machines. They often use weights, and their own body weight. I have learned a few new tricks by watching them! It's like getting a personal trainer free!
