Our Body - the machine

Good quote I learned "our body is the only machine that breaks down when not in use"

Leave the Car at home.

When going a reasonable distance with not a lot to bring to and from, I like to leave the car at home - walk, jog, or bike - it adds peace, joy (vitamin D), fresh air, scenic views otherwise missed, and a sense of accomplishment.

Put together a walk pack

Since I am now walking on a fairly regular basis, I decided to put a walk pack together. Just used a small, sport sling backpack. I hate keeping a lot of stuff in my pockets, and sometimes don't even have pockets. It's ready to go on a moments notice by the door.

swimsuit for motivation

Every time you don't feel like working out, go swimsuit window shopping online. When I finally see the swimsuit I'd like to buy, I'm always pumped to get my workout done and stick to clean eating.

Flaxseed

I try to put ground flaxseed in at least one food item each day; yogurt, meatloaf, casseroles, soups.

10 Min Videos Through the Wii

We have wireless internet at our house and a Wii system. I found out you can get into YOU Tube through the Wii internet channel and I did a few of Coach Nicole's 10 min videos on the big screen TV last night. FUN!

Push yourself!

One way I make sure I clock my exercise minutes is to plug in my goal time into the machine and tell myself I can get off whenever I want. That way there's no pressure, but I have my goal in sight. I usually end up staying on the whole time and I feel great about it in the end.

I was sooooooooooo out of shape!

When I started actively trying to lose weight and get back in shape last year (right about the time I first joined SparkPeople), I weighed 251, was having sciatica attacks, and could barely move around. I was so out of shape, I had trouble going on an actual walk, so I bought a Wii, along with Wii Sports and Wii Fit Plus, and started with those. After two months, I was twenty pounds lighter and could then start a walking regimen. If you can't walk, Wii, but move! emoticon

Paper Clip Chain

I keep a chain of paper clips next to my computer monitor at work. Each paper clip represents one pound lost. They are always front and center to help keep me motivated. I remember to say "No thank you" to the office doughnuts.
