I bring my scales to my trips

I have two digital kitchen scales (Soehnle brand), a small, and a bigger one. I also have a bathroom scale to measure my weight. When I go on a trip, I bring them with me, and I continue scaling as I do at home.

Exercising every day is easier

I do exercise every day. It is much easier, then to exercise only every other day, or 2-3x per week. It's just part of every day of my life. So it happens always.

endomondo.com

I track on endomondo.com my running workouts.

It can be downloaded to almost any type of phone, and track the GPS signal. Shows the speed (min/km), calories, time, distance. Uploads automatically. Then I can review my track on the maps at endomondo.com, and copy back to sparkpeople's fitness tracker.

I didn't realize at the beginning, but it is such a motivation to see the list of exercises with maps.
Also, I explore new roads, as it tracks the distance, I know when I reach 3km.

Eat 20-60 min after workout, a blend of carbohydrates and protein

I always wondered if I should eat or not after a workout. As I'm not hungry after jogging, I thought it is good not to eat, also to help my weight loss. Actually this is not the case.

Best is to provide the energy for the muscles, 20-60 mins after exercice.

I go for the recommended blend of carbohydrates and protien, like chicken with brown rice, yogurt with almonds, or a protein shake with a banana.

I got this tip from Get-fit-Guy, link to his short article at More Information.

Washing teeth = Less hunger

I wash my teeth after each meal. I also use floss and mouth wash.
This way there is a clear closure to the meal - finished. And somehow as the tastes go away from my mouth, there is less urge to get more snacks.
I also bought an nice Oral-B Pulsonic Slim electronic toothbrush, as an award and motivation. emoticon

8 waters a day - 1 after getting up, 1 before each meal, 1 before snacks = ready!

I drink 1 glass of water right after getting up (1). Then I drink a glass of water before breakfast, lunch and dinner (3). When I feel like eating a snack in the morning and afternoon, first I drink a glass of water (2). The two left, I just drink when I feel thirsty. :-) emoticon emoticon

Pin as tab the Nutrition tracker page (Firefox 4)

I used "Pin as tab" in Firefox 4 to fix my daily nutrition tracker page.
This way, my nutrition tracker is always there one click away when Firefox opens up. It is less time to add food, and I am more likely to track. ("Pin as tab" is also useful for gmail and facebook.) emoticon emoticon
