Try something new!

I try a new exercise each month - usually as a sort of reward to myself. I've gone biking, done yoga, gone kayaking, swimming, etc... Things I don't typically do as part of my workout routine. Soon I'm going to play raquetball. :)

Planning meals & eating more frequently

It has really helped me to plan my meals in advance and pack food to being with me to work. I eat 4 - 6 smaller meals thoughout the day rather than just a big lunch and dinner. The benefits? More control with my bs & successful weightloss!

need to feel more upbeat? listen to something upbeat!

When I'm feeling negative I always find that it helps to listen to an upbeat, positive, empowering song. Sheryl Crow's "Soak Up the Sun" is a great choice!

Challenge yourself with an exercise regime that you enjoy and can commit to. Don't forget to change it up so that you continue to improve. I feel healthier and happier!

Don't forget strength training...

I like cardio because it feels like the most "bang" for your caloric buck, but don't neglect strength training for a more well rounded fitness routine. Building muscle makes you a more efficient calorie burning machine! Who doesn't want that? emoticon

Snacking can help!

I make sure not to get too hungry by enjoying healthy snacks. It helps to carry snacks at all times so that you always have a healthy alternative.

spices!

I can't stand eating food that's too bland, so my secret to eating healthy is cooking with spices! It's the best way to add calorie free flavor. Cumin is my absolute favorite for everything from burgers to tacos to marinade! Yum!

Lists

I write a lot of lists. Things to buy, chores to do, appointments to make, people to call, etc. I carry a notebook and my blackberry with to do lists all of the time. It keeps me going! Although, my friends lose to tease me about being the "list lady." I can handle that, though!

Sweet tooth

My all time favorite diet friendly dessert is sugar free, fat free cook and serve chocolate pudding. I let it cool, then mix 1/2 cup of pudding with about 1/3 - 1/2 cup of Cool Whip Light. It tastes like Chocolate Mousse. Sometimes I have it with strawberries for a little extra decadence.

Plan in advance

When I get off track, the best way for me to get back on track is to plan everything. I make a meal plan for the upcoming weke, do my gracer shopping, and prep as much in advance as possible. That way, I have a plan to follow so that I get back to following a regimin.
