6-Pack Meats

Buying meats in bulk (6 or more servings) can be helpful in planning meals for 1-2 people in a household. Freeze the portions separately. This way you have meat for future meals and you can control how much you need to cook per person.

If The Clothes Fit. . . .

I tried on clothes at Old Navy yesterday and found that I can wear a size L instead of an XL. This gives me motivation to keep exercising and eating right.

Enjoy the moment and you'll go far (literally)

I find that when I go for a walk I wear a pedometer, but I don't think about steps or distance - I just walk and listen to my music. I get so wrapped up in the music that I don't realize how far I've walked til my legs started to ache.

Influence of Music

When my motivation is lacking, I put my Nickleback CD into my discman and go for a walk outside - I am so busy enjoying the music I lose track of how far I have walked.......Good thing I have a pedometer

Feelings Matter!

I think about how I feel after I have exercised, or when I see that I have stayed within my ranges on the Nutrient Tracker.
I get an overall positive feeling that makes my day so much better.
