OMG! Chocolate Cheerios are sooo good! I first read reviews about them written on the Hungry Girl site....she raved about them and she was right! They are a perfect way to get that chocolate craving taken care of without guilt...and they don't affect my blood sugar badly!
Need a little help passing up on the candy jar or left over deli sandwiches from the big bosses meeting? Think of the candy jar as a 'cootie' jar. Think of what the other people in your office had on their hands when they reached for a snack. Did they wash their hands after wiping their nose or going to the bathroom? Did they sneeze all over that potato salad when no one was looking?
Dr. Oz said this on one of his shows. He explained that the body will crave food, even if it is not officially "hungry." If you eat healthy, nutrient-rich foods, you will satisfy your body, and it will not crave high calorie, empty foods. It really hit a cord with me.
Walking helps me get my exercise in and helps me feel better. I am trying to add more steps everytime I go shopping. I try ro park farther out and will take my cart back to the cart corral an aisle or so over. I put my shoes on immediately after dinner and go. I try to walk 30-45 minutes.
When the alarm goes off, just get up and do it. No matter how difficult it is, if I just get up and put on my shoes, go out side and tell myself it's okay to just do a short walk rather than my planned run, I always end up completing the run once i have my shoes on and go outside.
