Don't forget to do this in your exercise workouts! Strength training is the key to healthier joints, bones, ligaments and tendons. Plus - the added benefit of slimming down is good too!!! emoticon

Write down EVERYTHING!

Honestly - I love SP nutrition tracker but its easier for me to go off course since it's connected to the computer and not me. However, I bought a calorie journal and I've been doing SO MUCH better eating healthy because it's in my purse and with me at all times!! My best advice - to stay true to your healthy lifestyle - write down everything you eat. You're much more likely to stay on course and continue your healthy eating habits! emoticon

Atomic Fireballs

I find that eating a fireball after dinner saves me from wanting any dessert or anything else which is a great thing for weight loss! If you are a cinnamon lover like me, you should try this!

Create a "MANTRA"

Having a "mantra" as I exercise helps me stay focused and determined. For example, I just tell myself whenever my inner whiner starts shouting "please stop" I yell back (in my head of course) "QUITTING IS NOT AN OPTION" and it provides for better results because I stick to it!!!! emoticon
