Grocery Shopping Assistance

I am not good with grocery lists and I have a bad memory of what I have in the house. Once a week or so, I will take a picture of my pantry and refrigerator with my mobile phone. That way I can always pull it up and glance to see if I already have something. emoticon

Motivated to exercise

When I lack motivation to exercise, I turn on the Spark. I read the exercise message boards, success stories, watch the biggest loser and then after all of that I just walk into the gym and let it happen. Do anything you feel like doing. Then come back and track it. You did it! Feels so good! emoticon

Identify your snack challenges

If you like chips, then figure out what you can substitute to "get your fix." For chips, perhaps Kashi Cinnamon Cereal in a pre-measured snack bags...ready to grab. Popcorn is another good alternative (100 calorie bags).

Too much Spark?

Sometimes I find myself not getting anything done for being on the Spark website. Set your timer on your stove that will ring when time is up. It makes you get up to cut off the timer. It's okay, you can sign back on later in the day. Just set the timer! emoticon

Workout while shopping

Put some weights on your ankles and cover them up with sweat pants. Walking around with these while you shop would help work off that extra fat. emoticon

Solving your portion problems

If you have a portion control problem, make your serving bowl a measuring cup. Pre-count snacks and store them in snack bags. Make up your burgers ahead of time by weighing the meat, prepare your patty, then freeze.

Check spark then decide

When you want a snack at night and you are trying to talk yourself out of it, but it is not working. Check your spark calories for the day and see if you have any calories left. Sometime it is still okay to have that snack and you can design it to stay within the calorie budget.
