Travel Day Fitness Made Easier

Take some of the stress out of travel day by making room for at least 90 minutes between major connections for quality SparkPeople Fitness Minutes. I am often able to work in the full 120 minutes of walking, making sure to work in 10-minute segments before taking a shopping, rest, or food break.

Snack Bags aid in Bulk Cooking

Cooking in bulk is a real time saver. Place up to 8 oz of your cooled hotdishes in snack-size bags, placing 3-4 bags in one labeled quart-size freezer bag, for later enjoyment. Small packages thaw overnight in the refrigerator, allowing you to vary your healthy eating for maximum nutrition.

Save Mealtimes for the Table

Instead of eating wherever you like (work desk, couch, favorite chair, bed, etc), strive to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner while at the kitchen or dining room table. This can be rewarding in so many ways and is less apt to serve as a reminder to eat when you’re not hungry or away from the table.

Who’s your healthy role model? Pat, you say? Then the acronym becomes WWPD: What Would Pat Do? Let that person be your inspiration today to let an unneeded temptation go by the wayside while you move on to concentrate on a healthier activity.

Buffet Strategy

Sit a good distance away from the sight of the buffet. Just putting your back to the buffet will lessen the temptation to continue taking more food.

Find and celebrate the small successes

Set short-term goals (hour, day, week) and gradually increase the timeline, while allowing you to remain highly motivated to succeed in reaching your long-term goals.
