Be You

I saw this somewhere and loved it- "Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken."

Smelly gym shoes...no problem!

I cut my used dryer sheets in half after each load of laundry. Then, I place them in my running shoes and other shoes that tend to be a little stinky. They make my shoes smell like fresh laundry! I leave em in my shoes when I work out, then throw them away when I come home. After my next load of laundry, I just replace them. emoticon emoticon

Beating the Cardio Blues

When you really don't feel like being at the gym, find a cardio machine next to a tall drink of water, and try to either out pace him or out last him. It totally worked for me today! emoticon
Bonus: You'll feel awesome when he looks over at your monitor to check your pace--or you--out emoticon

Guilt Free Popcorn

Orville Redenbacher's Natural: Simply Salted microwave popcorn is 50 calories a bag! I add some cinnamon, cocoa powder, nutmeg, and chili powder to it, and it is a super tasty 50 calorie evening snack emoticon

Be the Driver

Why putt-putt along when you can use your driver to shoot for the stars?! You, and you alone, decide how far you are going to go to reach your goals. Time to whip out the power inside you and really go for it! emoticon

Relationship with my credit card

After watching Confessions of a Shopoholic, one quote stuck with me- "Instead of a relationship with my credit card, I have a relationship with someone who loves me back." I didn't expect to learn anything from that movie, but when I am bored and tempted to online shop, I remind myself of that quote and it helps me kill the urge to use the card!

Going the Distance

I have a habit of doing 30 minutes on cardio machines and stopping, even if I am not exhausted. Today, instead of setting the minutes for 30, I just chose quickstart and it automatically set for 60 minutes! I just said, "okay, one more interval, one more song, till the end of the commercial break, etc." until 60 minutes and 600 calories had passed! I won't be setting a time limit for myself anymore because I know it limits what I can really do! emoticon
