Change your default

If your default is to eat comfort food to relax (especially at night!), change your default - switch to blogging, drinking herbal tea, working out or anything healthy..and make this your new default.

Do that thing that you always wanted to do but never did..

Take that dancing class, sign up for a hike, paint that picture -- do that thing that you always wanted to do for yourself but always put off. You'll feel really good and that will rub off and make you want to do other things that are healthy and good for you.

Give a little

If you're really down, pick something you can do to give to someone else. Comment on someone's first blog, call a friend, go volunteer. It helps to get out of yourself and reach out!

Fiber one cereal

I've substituted my morning cereal with fiber one cereal - it packs a high fiber punch and also is very filling first thing in the morning. Add in a few blueberries or strawberries and you have a perfectly healthy breakfast!

Eat Watermelon if you have Night time munchies

I love eating watermelon as a snack or if I have night time munchies - it is very filling and healthy and feels great in summer!

The Day After a Binge

Don't beat up on yourself. Eat breakfast, go about your day then eat your normal meals and snacks..it was just one bad day!! And you don't need to diet like crazy to make it go away. Feel good about today, let yesterday go and move on . You're worth it!

Greek Yogurt with banana and cocoa powder..

This combination hits the ice-cream, chocolate and creamy dessert spot for me. You do have to get used to the taste of greek yogurt but once you do, you'll love it and its healthy too!

Say "Why Not" - All the time..

If you're thinking in your head "I can't" ...whether its exercise, getting up off of the couch, talking to someone or putting yourself out there in different ways; then switch it to "why not" and get up and go do it..because really, why not??

Flip through healthy eating cookbooks

Seeing pictures of delicious, healthy, attractive meals that are simple to make always sparks me to think of food differently..today I was thinking of all the different ways I could use tomatoes differently..Visualize appealing, tasty *and* healthy foods and you will eat healthier..

Make Lentil Soup!

Its light, has fiber *and* protein and is actually tasty and filling. Love this as a lunch time option with some salad.
