Oranges

I try to keep oranges in the house ... a fresh orange is better for you (being a diabetic myself) than drinking a cup of orange juice. I also enjoy putting an orange slice in my water ... kicks it up a bit and is a nice change

Log Your Food, Log Your Food, Log Your Food!!!

Logging my food every day is probably the most important thing I do on SparkPeople. It keeps me honest about what I'm eating. It also makes it very easy to look back and get menu planning ideas!

Trying

You just have to keep trying. If you have a bad meal or an extra piece of cake, don't despair. Just make sure your next meal is healthier. This is a lifelong process, so you will have your good days and your bad days...just like with everything else in life.

Drinking enough Water

I found a really cool water bottle that I like to carry with me. I love it, so I don't forget it. It fits easily in the drinking fountain, so is easy to refill. By starting to carry this, I've increase my water consumption significantly, and I'm hardly ever thirsty anymore.

Just One Thing...

Choose just one thing to start with, write a food journal or start drinking water or counting your steps per day. Get good at it. Build from there. It helps me stay positive when I can do something well and get better at it all the time

$2.50 for a bottle of water at the airport

Take an empty water bottle through security and fill it afterwards at a fountain. Tastes just as good and saves that money!

Do it Differently

I promise...I promise....Just do it differently...even reversing the order of the exercise has impact. Add something totally different like hula hoop or jumping jacks to your routine.

Mix up the cardio, get out of the rut! Try new things!

I was stuck in a 1/2 pound (or less) lost a week, and I wasn't happy with that! So I created a weekly regimen where I do 5 types of cardio per week and added a couple things I hadn't been doing before - the stationary bike and swimming - and while the weight loss isn't spectacular yet, I'm seeing a difference. So getting out of a rut is really important! Any exercise is good but mixing it up ensures more weight loss. :)

Don't Compare Yourself to Anyone. Ever.

I used to compare myself to friends who were super thin or who could run 10 miles. It was depressing, and it made my goals seem overwhelming. Don't use anyone else as a yardstick for your success. Your body and your health are different than anyone else's.
