tired

I had my 5 year GD today for the whole day and she went home about 12:45 AM. I am wore out but we really did a lot around the house inside and out. I love her dearly but it really tires me out on the go for 10 hours and I mean on the go. Gone to have to toughen up you think.

Water contest

i used to drink a lot of caffeine free diet soda--In order to get more water in, I made a rule for myself that I couldn't have a soda until I had finished my 8 glasses of water first. That helped me to build a healthy habit...and now, I rarely drink soda ever.

Wear A Pedometer From Morning Until Night

I have been wearing a pedometer from morning until night since 2001. I record my step counts and distance daily on an Excel spreadsheet. I average the step counts monthly along with my weight and exercise minutes. This gives me concrete evidence of my trends so I can make adjustments if needed.

Binge on the healthy bag

If I'm really hungry and I want to be able to eat a lot, I choose a bag of baby carrots or dehydrated apple chips, so if I eat the whole bag I've only downed about 150 calories!

Stay on top of laundry

I stay on top of the laundry much better when I make myself fold everything right out of the dryer. I don't even start the next load of wash unless the dryer is empty and the previous load folded.

Pedometer

From the time I get out of bed in the morning until the time I go to bed at night I wear a pedometer. Sometimes I forget to take it off when I go to bed, DH says it's so I get all the steps from sleepwalking counted. My goal is to get 10,000 steps per day. I am lost without my trusty Omron pedometer...

Go out and buy clothes in the size you WANT to be at your goal weight.

Buy a pair of pants/ dress in the size you WANT to wear at your goal weight, Hang them where you can SEE them every day.
That way you have a visual reminder of where you want to be. And it makes your goal....more REAL.
