Where did I park?

Ever spend a day at the amusement park and then forget where you parked? Me too. I learned this from someone at Hersheypark this past weekend. Using your cell phone or digital camera, take a picture of the parking sign closest to where you park. Easy, right?

Mantra

When I wake up in the morning, I thank God for another day and I ask Him to keep me safe, strong, fearless and happy. I ask him for guidance and an open mind and that He show me what His will is for me that day.

Exercise while on vacation

Don't take a vacation from exercise when you go on vacation. If your hotel has a gym, put in 30 minutes at least. If no gym, take a long walk, jog in place, move yourbody. Wouldn't it be great to come home vacation and not have a weight gain?

While blow drying my hair, I march in place. Looks ridiculous but gets in a great mini-workout.

Don't forget where you came from...

If you were once overweight, don't forget what it was like. It'll keep you humble.

Greek Yogurt

I love Greek yogurt, but it's so expensive! Now I make my own. I bought a mesh strainer from a kitchen store , I buy plain nonfat yogurt in the big tub, pour it into the strainer and let it sit over night. The water drains out and you are left with thick Greek yogurt. Add sugar free jelly. YUM

Quick walks

During the work day, instead of trying to fit in a long walk, I take 2-15 minute walks. Helps relieve stress and makes me more productive.
