PEDOMETER PHUN!!!

Every since I invested in a pedeometer, I'm challenged to 'Get Moving and Keep moving' each day. It's a lot harder to sit around when I know I need to get some steps in. It's amazing how much we move and don't realize it. Studies show we need around 10,000 steps a day to maintain weight loss. I racked up 4,000 alone the other day in my Zumba class. I'm pumped!! emoticon You won't regret the investment!!! emoticon Our health is PRICELESS! http://www.shapeup.org/shape

Wait 30 minutes for your SWEET SATISFACTION!!!

When sweet cravings hit, 'once you cop, you can't stop!!' When the craving (or temptation hits for the first time, I tell myself, "I will, but in 30 minutes". I keep this up as long as I can. By the time I give in, I still do less damage than I would have done. Sugar has NO nutritional value!!! So it's not a necessity, but a luxury. Let's make it worth it and enjoy it even more! emoticon

STAYING HYDRATED

Knowing how important water is to weight loss, I have tried a few methods to insure I get at least my 64 oz a day. And actually those of us who live in hotter climates (it gets to 120* here in the summer) should be drinking even more.

At work I either 1) Keep a post it on my water bottle with the latest time I took a swig. I try to do every 30 minutes, not a guzzle just a swig. 2) Take a swig every time I notice my body heat go up (when I get upset, stressed or a cute guy walks by :) emoticon

Cortisol Concerns

I remember seeing these commercials about this hormone cortisol that is produced when you're stressed and under pressure. It inhibits us from losing weight. So since I'm under a lot of stress and pressure at work, I got a great idea to eat extremely light at work and lost 15 lbs within 2 months.
