Overcoming Obstacles

I need to be on crutches for 1 wk and in a knee brace for 2. Instead of giving up, I decided to find the +'s: great upper body workout, I can still go to Curves, just modify the workout, can still box on Wii, but need to be seated. Find a positive in each situation & let it be your motivator!

sandwich greens for one or two

Instead of buying a head of lettuce and bunch of spinach that will go bad before one or two people can use them up - I buy a little of each off the salad bar (3-4 days worth of greens for my sandwiches for just a few cents)!

Tasting Food

When eating ANYTHING, take smaller bites. Make each bite just large enough to "taste" the food and chew. You will get more enjoyment out of what you are eating and your meal will last longer which will allow your body to signal that you are full and help to prevent you from eating as much.

Log the bad stuff!

Sometimes when I have a bad eating day, it's tempting to just not log it. Why bother? I know that I went over my goals! But I have found that logging the bad stuff helps me to get it off my chest, and then I can move forward and get back on that wagon that much quicker.

Walk, Run or Cycle

For every mile I put $.50 in a can.
Have not decided what I will do with it. But I'm sure it will be fun.

Quit Waiting for the "Feeling"

I recently went through a funk, and didn't have the spark I'd started with 5 mos. ago. I thought this was a feeling that would return on it's own. THEN, I realized that determination is not a FEELING that comes over me, it's a DECISION! Once I consciously decided to just DO IT, well, here I am!
