Fit & Fresh

I love these products! I prepare my lunch the night before & everything is measured, stays fresh and, with the ice packs & my cooler, I can keep at my desk instead of the shared fridge where food is so often taken.

OTC Bottles

Sometimes the smaller size bottles of aspirin are cheaper than the big ones. I use the big ones at home and I use the smaller bottes as my "travel size". That way, no one can accuse me of carrying unlabeled meds when I travel.

Celebrate Your Accomplishments
!

I have a lot of weight to lose. Instead of focusing on the big number still to lose, I celebrate the weight I have already lost. That positive energy helps me keep motivated and moving forward!

Focus on What You CAN Do

I have some physical challenges that limit what I can do. For that reason, I don't use the workout generator and cannot do a lot of the daily exercises. Thinking about that is a real de-motivator, so instead, I focus on what I can do.

Ask Yourself....and Wait

Doughnut or healthy cereal? Ask yourself and wait for the answer before choosing. Today, I chose cereal because I really want to see a lower number on the scale this week. Then I waited for that inner voice. When the inner voice agrees, the choice is a lot easier and happier!

Add Soup!

Add soup (broth and veggie, not creamy) to fill in the "nooks and crannies" so you will feel full sooner.

Make Your Health a Priority

On this journey, one of the things I am learning is to make the right choices for the right reasons. I eat & exercise in ways that show I care about me. So, too, I do the yearly physical exams, even though I don't like them, because that is also taking care of me.

Flavor Packets

At work, I have a container where I keep mustard & other sauce packets. Sometimes I have imitation crab as my protein for breakfast & I use the Taco Bell packet (example) as a way to add flavor to an otherwise somewhat dry food.

Look for Dual Purpose Reasons to Act

I signed up to walk a 5K (never done that before!). It will raise money to defeat childhood cancer, it commits me to walk & it gets me closer to the $250 cash reward from work for making healthy choices.

Right Size Dishes

SP promotes the Fit & Healthy line of food containers. I just bought some & have been surprised how off my idea of portion was! I dropped half a pound just by right-sizing my food 2 days ago!
