You CAN do this

No matter what is going on, no matter what mistakes you made today or yesterday--just stick with it. You are making changes in the way that you live and little by little, piece by piece, you will get this big job done and you will be so glad that you did this. emoticon

Meal Planning once and for all!

Sit down and do a meal plan for the next 3 or 4 weeks. Enter your favourite family meals. We have Pasta Tuesday, Chicken Wednesday, Beef Thursday, etc... I have 3 weeks of meal plans along with Grocery Lists prepared, and then rotate.. Week #1, Week #2, Week #3, and then back to Week #1. Add in a night for trying a new recipe.. and a date night out. I've also started a week#4 with new recipes that we tried and liked.. No need to do this every week. Just once and then use the same plans!

Liking what you see in the Mirror

Good-Bad-Or Other you have to like what you see in the Mirror. And during the times you do lose a pound or more, really take the time to look in the mirror and say," I'm LOOKING BETTER AND BETTER!" Then say "And not only do I look Better, I'm a lot HEALTHIER too!"

Are you really hungry?

The next time you head into your kitchen only to find yourself staring in your fridge looking for something tasty to snack on, ask yourself, "Am I really hungry?" And instead of just grabbing something to put into your mouth, try drinking a glass of water first. Maybe you aren't hungry, but thirsty?

Match Your Spark Points

It occurred to me one day that if I earned as many Fitness Minutes Points as I do SparksPoints, I would surely not be stuck on this weightloss plateau.

So here's the challenge I issued myself and my Spark teammates:

1. Post your SparkPoints from yesterday (we are generally still in the process of 'earning' when we come here to post).

2. Try to match or exceed the number of Fitness Minutes for today.

I did this for a week and lost 2 #s. BTW, no fair skimping on your SparkPoints!!!

Water

I drink water out of a 6 oz. juice glass. For some reason, it's easier than "regular" glasses. Ten a day and I'm done!

Smiles and Stickers

I keep a daily planner book. I write everything I have to do during the week. I like to add easy to accomplish things to my daily schedule (such as "go to the gym") It feels great to cross things off. Every time I work out I put a sticker on the day (if you don't have stickers draw a big smiley face) then I write what I did during my work out (such as "30 min carido, arms") It's a great way to keep track of your work outs and to motivate yourself!!

Drink more water

I find that I drink a lot more water, if I use a straw. It has been a major factor. If the water is just in a cup it will only sit there. The straw is just inviting for a quick sip. emoticon

6 MINI MEALS

DIVIDE 1200 CALORIES INTO 6 MEALS. EAT THEM 3 TO 4 HOURS APART, NO SOONER.
FOR EXAMPLE: EAT A 1/2 OF A SANDWICH, EAT THE OTHER 1/2 AT THE NEXT MEAL. 4 HOURS FROM THE LAST MEAL.
HAVE 200 CALORIES APPROX. EVERY 4 HOURS. emoticon

Dance your fat off!

When I'm destined to clean the house, I put on my favorite music play lists and dance my fat off while cleaning. Why not use that duster as your microphone! Be silly, and get a clean house in the long run!
