Planning Ahead

Taking a few moments every evening to think about and plan my food intake for the next day helps to keep me on track. If I make decisions in the moment, I am much more likely to make poor decisions.

planning ahead

I am on the road for my job every day...I spend a night or two away from home and eating in restaurants...so my best secret is portioning food out into ziplock bags and packing my snacks and meals...that way I always have healthy snacks with me!!

All those great fruits

I love putting a tub of yogurt with a half cup of blueberries, one banana and a small container of fruit of choice in blender and enjoying knowing I am eating heathy. (Can freeze) tastes like you are cheating.

"Gotta Have a Treat"

I like to eat a low-cal, fat-free cup of flavored yogurt when I just "have" to have a little something. I sprinkle a 1/2 Tablespoon of mini chocolate chips and mix them in for a nibble of dessert. It's particularly good with coconut yogurt! Yum.

Dinnertime Don't

After fighting my husband's advice to not eat after the gym, I finally gave in and tried it. Boy was he right! I've been making sure I get a small meal in before I leave work and head to the gym and stopped eating when I get home. I've dropped those last 5 pounds!!!

Make your list and check it twice!

When I know that it is time to do some shopping, I always make a list of foods that I enjoy and that are good for me too. Making a list and sticking to it means that I won't be tempted to buy items that I don't need or want because I have put so much time into my food research and lifestyle changes

Whatever type of sandwich you have, cut it up into 4 peices & do not eat anything else with it, except water.

nab nighttime snacking

I have a hard time with not eating chips or treats at night. I find if I brush my teeth right after dinner, that curbs me from eating again before bed. Going to bed early works well too, if I am feeling weak and having strong cravings.
