Fit n Exercise Anywhere...Seri
ously

When you go to the grocery store, mall, or anywhere for that matter, park at the farthest spot possible and walk to the door.

Screw Stress

I HATE stress...I hate what it does to my body and how it controls what I eat and when.

I have been starving all day because I am stressed! I cannot get enough of anything I eat...at all today!

Instead of Candy...

Sorry folks but I am a candy-a-holic. Instead of cookies and cake I rather eat a whole package of Sour Patch kids. However, to slim down I put a stop to this. Instead I eat watermelon, peaches, strawberries, bananas, etc.

I try to stay with the sweeter fruits to get my candy fix. So far...

Kick the Soda!

I used to think I could never go without a soda. Just thinking about not ever drinking a soda again would make me crave it even more. It was actually a lot easier than I thought, to kick. I mainly drink water and one cup of coffee a day.
If I want a soda, I split one with my fiancÚ, so I still...
