Put the scale away

Put the scale away in a closet or drawer. Don't get it out except for once a week! This way you can measure your progress by how you feel, not by what a machine tells you.

Get a special cup

My husband and boys bought me a Tervis travel cup for Mother's day. It's indestructible and has a lifetime warranty! It's 24oz so I just fill it with my water 4-5 times a day and carry it everywhere. I never put anything else in it. I love my cup and it makes water intake so much simpler!

Wake up ready

I sleep in my (clean) workout clothing. That way when I get up in the morning I am ready to workout, all I have to do is slap on my shoes and go go go!!

Pedometers

Buy yourself a nice pedometer and clip it to your shoes or pant cuff as soon as you get up. You'll be amazed how much you walk during the day and how motivating it can be to beat your own personal best.

Bacon Salt

There's this stuff called "Bacon Salt". It has the flavor of bacon but not neary the amount of bad stuff you don't want. I sprinkle it into my scrambled eggs when I am craving bacon!

Bacon pieces

Bacon is so good but can be pricey. Next time you go to buy it, look in the meat area for packages of bacon pieces. They're usually slices and thick "chunks" to cook with. We use them for breakfast or just general cooking in certain meals and they only cost about a $1 a pound!
