Trigger food

If I have a trigger food that usually I can't keep in my house without finishing off the whole box...for me mint ice cream bars...I hide them in the back of the freezer with everything piled on top so that I can't get to them without digging everything else out first!!

Divide and Conquer

As soon as I get home after grocery shopping I divide everything into single serving portions and write the calorie count on the containers so that there is no guessing the rest of the week. (an added plus is that it saves time during the workweek too)

H20

Water, Water everywhere but not a drop to drink...don't know where this came from but I remember saying it when I was little. Anyway, what I want to talk about is the importance of water.

dragging

I've found when I'm really draggy at work out time, the best thing for me to do is walk outside. Then I'm distracted by the sounds and colors. Once I've finally began I don't want to stop because I always feel invigorated!
