Think of your Calories as a Budget

The best thing I was ever told was to think of my calories as a budget. Know how many you can have each day and before you eat something ask yourself if you can afford it. If it's worth the amount you have to spend and you have the calories eat it if not rethink it.

Foods with Benefits

Oranges

Just one juicy fruit contains most of your recommended daily amount of vitamin C which is necessary for healthy immune function. Plus the classic fruit is cost-efficient too.

No Diets

I like that Spark people has taught us that we do not diet. We change our life style. I eat way more now than I ever have and only eat things I like! Portion control with the right amount of protein, carbs, calories and fat will do it for ya! Keep tracking!

Don't buy it!

If you know you can't resist it, don't buy it-even for other people. If you don't keep it in your home, you will not be tempted.

Laughing Cow Cheese

Love these little wedges with only 35 calories. Use them on baked potatoe instead of butter, in tuna or canned salmon instead of mayo, on celery for a snack, and lots of other ways. Very spreadable.

OK to Have a Bad Day

I don't remember where I heard this or read it, but it was "you don't break every law just because you get speeding ticket one day". Allow yourself to have junk food and not exercise once in a while without beating yourself up over it. The next day get right back on track with healthy living.

Nutrition

Sticking with my nutrition plan - making healthier choices - has been my key to success. Making sure to get my 3 cups of veggies (total) at lunch and dinner are hard (I don't care for veggies), but I've learned they are essential in my reaching my healthier lifestyle goal.

Still have a treat

Keep your treats to once a week rather than each night

I have bottle of wine at the weekends now rather than saying not having at all

Then you only crave it more & more likely to over indulge when you do have it
