Clicking on Motivational Sparkpages

Whenever I say " I don't want to work out or I don't want to have veggies". I click on motivational sparkpages. This instantly makes me throw on my gym clothes or grab fruit. Knowing that they did it, makes me want to reach my success and be my OWN success story

Versatility is KEY!!

I broke my plateau by changing everything. Upping my caloric intake one day and lowering it the next day. At the gym, I learned if you increase your incline on the trendmill or cross ramp, you burn 100 more calories. It works!!

MOVE IT!!!

Move it! I exercise as much as possible so I can eat more. I go to the gym, but I also walk everywhere I can. Never feeling deprived helps me stay on track!

Prep meals earlier

Do your prep work "I fix the next day's food as I'm making dinner. I'm more likely to pack a nutritious lunch when I have the cutting board and vegetables out already."

Early morning workouts

* Be a morning person "I've found that a workout is the best reason to get out of bed. I often start exercising at 5 a.m. When I commit to my health that early, I keep making good-for-me choices the whole day

Portions, portions, and portions

99.8% of overall weight-loss is calorie intake. So remember to monitor your food intake. I have a food journal to keep me focused.

What keeps me motivated?

I figure you have this one life, and this one body. I have seen people treat their cars and their shoes better than their own bodies.

Eat before attending a event

Never EVER go to a party or dinner HUNGRY. That is a huge colossal mistake. Eat something light, I eat a plate with more greenery and grains
