track you exercises before you do them

put it on your schedule

Every Sunday I plan out my exercise for the week. I keep everything in Google Calendar. I look at the schedules for my gym, as well as my personal schedule, and plan out all my workouts. Once it is in my calendar, I treat it as an appointment that I cannot miss.

Like high calorie cereals, but not all the calories?

I love high calorie, but healthy cereals, like granola and Kashi Go Lean Crunch. To cut the calories, but still get my fill, I mix a small portion (1/4 or 1/2 the serving size) with a very low calorie, but high fiber cereal, like Fiber One. Mix in some fruit and you have a delicious breakfast.

plan meals for the week

I plan my meals for the week. This keeps me on track and prevents me from ordering a pizza in the middle of the week because I am out of ingredients.

enjoy your veggies

Try roasting your vegetables. They taste great without any added fat. Cook at 425 until slightly charred and you will experience a totally different taste than steaming, sauteeing, etc. Great with broccoli, asparagus, green beans, cauliflower.
