Stress Buster

My go to stress buster is getting physically active. it doesn't have to be much--just a quiet 10 min walk, usually outside (fresh air is such a mood lifter!). emoticon

Sneaky way to get my spouse to exercise

My DH has Type 2 Diabetes and needs to get healthy. I invite him to play tennis with me so I can get in my exercise minutes. He hardly ever turns me down. I asked him if he would run a 5k with me. We went out tonight and ran 1.70 miles to train for it. It's sneaky, but it works for me and him! emoticon

try fasting!

every time i start to diet it fail, until one day my religion doing fasting, i can manage my diet. i fast for a month, eat 3.30 am and break the fast at 6pm. i try to feel my body, when im full, i will not eat again. the fasting is helping because it made me feel full easily, when eating. after a month fasting i lose 2 kg, its not much, but the habit of my eating stay, it help me to continue my diet. now about a month later i lost 1 kg again, it feel long, but i enjoy,cus just eat when hungry.

how I count

When I count my reps in a set (of exercises) I count 1,2...10, PLUS 1, PLUS 2 so the couple of extra reps I do are acknowledged as "above and beyond"... As I count down the time left on the crosstrainer, I convert the minutes into a percentage remaining, or percentage completed - the maths is a distraction, and once I've hit the 100% - anything extra is acknowledged as 'above and beyond"...

I Listen to Pandora Music Channel

I like to put it on "channels" that have fun, upbeat music and I love the fact you can see how long the songs are so you can time yourself, Love Pandora

Declutter your kitchen

Always keep your kitchen and eating area clear of clutter. You won't feel so overwhelmed every time you need to make something to eat and you will be less likely to stress eat or grab crap so you don't have to stick around the mess!

Use the stairs

I skip the elevator in any building with six or less floors. Because of my asthma I simply take my time, especially on the way up. As a result, I get a little exercise and have good strong legs.
