Try Something Different!

As you figure out good foods to eat, try different combinations so that you don't get bored with eating the same old stuff. Try new foods, try new seasonings and combine different foods together. Have some adventurous eating!

What Choices Will I Make Today to Further My Goals?

As I drive to work, I ask myself this question. It sticks in my head so that, as I go through my day, the food I choose, the route I walk, the way I spend my time are geared towards moving the scale down this week.

Take Time!

This is so elementary, but so true. I have to work at remembering and doing it. Eat slowly! Enjoy every flavorful bite! Savor the meal! Drink water with the meal and take your time with the meal! Give your body time to feel full!

Adding Water

I have a 24 oz water bottle that I fill up at work first thing in the morning. I carry it with me to staff meetings, conference calls and have it within reach at all times. When I fill it up, I immediately take a drink so I end up getting 4 glasses with each fill! I've usually reached 8 by lunchtime!

Micro Goals

Struggling to keep moving forward? Cut the goals down to achievable accomplishments! Not doing 10K steps a day? Cut down to 5K and, when you do that consistently, add 500 and so on.

Rewarding for Good Decisions/Actio
ns

I got the idea from a Sparkfriend who is saving money from her swear jar to buy a new wardrobe when she reaches her goal. Me? I am saving my change in measured amounts for doing the right thing. Dime for 10 minute walk, penny for every glass, etc. AND a bonus if I contribute to each goal daily

If You Love Them, Tell Them!

Tomorrow, I bury a close friend too soon. My regrets have to do with not bieng in closer touch, not having one more time to let her know I love, respecr, admire and value her.

Don't miss that opportunity! Time is too short!

PB2 Rocks!

This powdered peanut butter is awesome. Add water to the consistency that you want and use like any other peanut butter. Put the powder in a shake and yummo! The much lower fat and great taste is a real boon! I ordered a 6-pack!

Healthy Food Tastes Better!

As you start eating healthy food consistently, you begin to lose the taste for sugar, salt and fat. For example, I had some baby carrots yesterday, which I used to avoid. They tasted just sweet enough that I did not crave anything else!

How cool is that?!

Saving Money on Hair Care

I buy the gallon jugs of shampoo and conditioner at places such as Sallys Beauty Supply for about $6-9 per gallon. I pour them into old shampoo bottles and just refill as needed. (no spillage by using the smaller bottles in the shower!)
