Magazine Money

I use the money I save from not eating fast foods to purchase magazines such as All You, First, and Fitness. When I am looking for something to do to stay away from eating, I read my magazines looking for health info or success stories to keep me motivated.

Feeling my success

I wear my old bigger clothes as long as they still "fit" when I am at home. It motivates me to stick to my goals and reminds me how far I have come. (And they are comfortable) emoticon

Nutrition Tracker Favorites

I recently got back on track by cleaning out my list of favorites in the Nutrition Tracker. I deleted the foods I no longer eat regularly and really saw how much non nutrient foods I had been eating since I started with sparkpeople. My habits have changed so much and it was lightening to remove so many junk foods from my "favorites".

Share your meal with the dogs

I have 3 dogs. Whenever I am eating they are waiting for me to drop some. I share my food with them and I eat less.

Read nutrition labels

I was at the grocery store and a label caught my eye. It said "Reduced Sodium". I read the nutritional info and the info on the original kind and the sodium content was exactly the same. It is not always what it says!

Emotional Eating

I have created a meal in Nutrition called Emotional Eating. It helps me see how much I eat just because I feel like it.

Check "reports"

Whenever I have a setback I use the Reports option in sparkpeople to view my progress over time. This helps me see that one day is not much of a setback.

Salad bar

I used to buy the bags of salad and would end up throwing away (actually feeding to the chickens) salad and spinach due to spoilage or wilting. I now fill a container at the grocery store salad bar with light weight spinach and spring mix and it costs less than the bags and I waste less.

Adding exercise into my day

I stretch for 5 minutes in the shower every morning. When cleaning or cooking I use every opportunity to bend and stretch. I use my pedometer all day and I add steps when I have the time.
