Make a Habit of Smiling

I've read that you can make yourself happy by smiling. If you smile throughout the day, it sends a message to the brain and you feel better. Try smiling 100 times a day, is what I've read.

Veggies for Breakfast

Try eating some steamed veggies for breakfast. I find that raw are too hard on my stomach first thing in the morning. Some steamed (from frozen) veggies with breakfast are satisfying and a great way to eat more veggies.

Take pictures

Take lots of pictures. You are going to regret having nothing to compare to down the road. You can really see the difference in your looks in your pictures.

You Cannot Take It with You

When my sister died, everything she owned got thrown out or donated. It made me look at all my "stuff" in a new way. So now, I don't buy anything unless I truly need it. I wear out my clothes before buying anything new, if even then.

Do You Really Want to Carry This Around??

As I was putting my free weights away today, I was thinking how heavy they were. I used to carry more weight than that on my body ALL THE TIME! Crazy, isn't it? So next time you feel yourself slipping, pick up some free weights and ask yourself, do you want to carry this around all the time?

Snack Bowl

To keep yourself from snacking on the wrong snacks:
#1. Stop buying them in your groceries!
#2. Get a big bowl and only place in 100 calorie snacks inside. Whenever you need a snack only take snacks from this bowl! emoticon

When you're sleeping, you're not eating!

I've noticed that the times I eat the most are the times I sleep the least, especially when I'm up all night and no one is around to see me or keep me accountable. Getting to sleep on time means you aren't awake to get those cravings for inappropriate snacks, and keeps your calorie count lower!

The smallest step still goes forward

Little steps will take you far. The littlest step I took in the beginning was to ask myself daily, "What have I done today to make me feel proud?" I don't have to ask that any more, everything I do makes me proud!
