track you exercises before you do them

Plan you exercise for the week and put these exercises on your tracker. Having them already there makes you feel obligated to complete them. No one wants to have to delete a workout that you did not do. Bonus: It is extra satisfying to ADD to a workout that you planned for a given day. emoticon

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.

snack on fruit more

Keep ready to eat fruit in bowls in your refrigerator at eye level. You will be more likely to grab them for a snack.

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.

Pumpkin Pie Pudding

Make some yummy pumpkin pie pudding. All you have to do is take 1 vanilla pudding cup, or make fat free, sugar free instant pudding and divide into 1/2 cup servings. Then, mix with about 1/3 cup of pure canned pumpkin and some pumpkin pie spice. For extra pie effect, serve with 1 graham cracker. emoticon
