Every loss matters!!!

1/4 a pound loss after working hard all week does not sound like a lot. BUT take a stick of butter and put it under your chin. WOW! a quater of a pound makes a big difference. Celebrate every loss not matter how big OR small!

Start every day fresh

Start each and every day like it's the first day of your diet. You get a second chance to start all over each and every day. You start each day with a fresh slate. Don't worry about what you did yesterday. You can do it!!!

Just Do Something!

Everyone has those days where they just don't feel like working out -- and we all can come up with a list of reasons why we should skip the days workout. Instead of talking yourself out of it, just do something. Even if it's just a walk around the block!

Workout in the morning

Get up an hour early and get moving. You can go to the gym or go for a run...whatever suits you. Try to prep anything you need the night before (pack your gym bag, organize the clothes you're wearing the following day, put out a quick morning snack).

Push the reset button

Bad day? Blow your calories? No problem. You can push the reset button anytime. If I've gone off track, whether it's for a month or a meal, I literally stop, take a moment to breathe deeply, and imagine myself pushing a giant RESET button. The image lets me release what I've done and move forward.

More, not less

I've broken more plateaus more quickly by eating more rather than less. Borne of discouragement - "If this isn't working, I quit!" - I've found that if I eat a little more over the week, even treat myself a time or two, and that jiggles my metabolism back into losing. Works every time!
