Daily dates with myself

I kept blowing off working out because I had to work, run errands, or meet up with someone. I started making daily dates with myself to exercise. Now I'm not missing any appointments AND getting my workouts in.

Avoid late night snacks

If late night snacking is what is keeping you from achieving your weight loss goals - try going to sleep earlier. If you aren't awake late at night it is impossible to eat while you sleep emoticon

Take a breath

When I start feeling overwhelmed or like I am not going to be able to accomplish what I need to accomplish - I force myself to stop and take a deep breath. This slows me down from continue on a downward spiral into depressing myself. That deep breath allows me to re-focus and find strength and peace

Check pockets before doing laundry

Before I do laundry, I check all the pockets. Whatever I find goes straight into a jar. I just tallied up my jar that I have been saving since January and lo and behold I had accumulated 22 dollars!!!

Just add water

Before eating any meal, I drink a 4 oz of water emoticon . This helps me to not eat as much emoticon & helps me to stay hydrated.

Workout & Bible Study

I've been struggling to get my morning workout in and read my bible every morning due to time constraints. Now I found a free online audio link where I can listen to the bible every morning and workout at the same time. I get to revitalize my body and faith at the same time. WHAT A GLORIOUS DAY!

Morning Crunches

Every morning the first thing I do is push myself to do a minimum of 100 crunches. This helps me not to have a huge breakfast. Often I end up doing a ten minute routine in the process and wind up working out 2X's in one day - all with just starting with 100 crunches! emoticon

Looking in the mirror

Every night before I go to sleep I have started to post a new message in the mirror. In the morning I have my motivational message waiting for me. It has helped me to do my crunches first thing or go for an extra 10 minute walk. A few words of encouragement can go a long way.
