Restaurant Salad Dressing Option

I love to have salads when eating out. They're a lot of work to make. I have the fattening items left off (croutons, eggs, cheese, etc) but the light dressing options are often limited. So I carry my own in a little screw top bottle (bought mine at REI). It's a perfect solution for me.

Breakfast Omlettes

I have an egg white omlette most mornings. I keep a carton of egg whites in the fridge and measure out a serving over browned shredded potatoes (1/4 cup), spinach, squash, onions, or peppers with a sprinkling of cheddar cheeese or tablespoon of light sour cream. Fast, easy and filling.

Tasty Ice Cream Treat Options

My sweet tooth loves ice cream during the hot summer months and it's already over 100 here! So I load my freezer with lower calorie options and have found these favorites: Weight Watchers Giant Fudge bars & Snickers, Skinny cow anything and the Breyer's Smooth and Dreamy Bars. Enjoy! emoticon

Late night eating

I've really been struggling with eating after an 8:00 snack so I came up with a strategy for it since I can pack on 300-400 calories with a late night binge. Now, when tempted, I will ride the elliptical for 10 minutes and drink some water. I figure that should distract me and exercise more.

Flavorful Water

Drinking the 8 glasses of water can be a challenge some days but it is a great idea. I add a little something to mine -- slice of lemon, lime, orange, cucumber or a sprig of mint.

Fruit and Veggies

I spend some time when returning from the grocery store to wash, chop, dice, slice all my fruits (berries and melon) and veggies (especially lettuce, carrots, celery, jicama, tomatoes) and lemons and limes for my water. They are all ready for me to grab when making meals or planning snacks.

Make an Exercise Plan

I use my SP Fitness Planner for my strength training and cardio. I also write a plan for my 5 days of cardio on Sunday afternoon as I look at the schedule for the week ahead. This helps me fit it in, doesn't leave time for excuses and helps keep me fit and organized.
