Competitive shopping!

Went to a $1 Earth Day sale this morning at the local hipster / vintage store. Had to simultaneously root through bins of $1 clothing items and fight off the vultures trying to poach my awesome loot. Am now EXHAUSTED and thinking that's my cardio for the day...

Happy Earth Day!

Trick yourself into going to the gym!

If I don't want to go to the gym, I will trick myself by pretending I'll just go for one class, or I'll just go for 30 minutes on the elliptical. Once I'm there and my heart rate's up, I inevitably stay longer than the minimum I started with.

Dress for your body!

My husband has been saying my legs look thinner; I disagree. Yesterday, I wore these tight, structurally supportive yoga pants to Body Pump class and couldn't believe how skinny my lower body looked! I guess you really have to find clothes that work for you to show off your progress!

Gummy vitamins!

I figured I should take a vitamin, but why not feel like a kid and take a couple of gummy vitamins instead of a boring old tablet?

Abs in the car!

Try sitting up (not touching the seat back) while you are driving in the car. It is surprisingly hard to do for the whole time (I think the seat belt provides extra resistance) and works your abs while you drive!

Skip dessert when eating out!

I used to get dessert at restaurants every time! But the dessert was always sooo big. Now, when the waiter asks me if I want dessert, I say, "No thanks!"

Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels!

Housework to music!

I listen to my mp3 player while doing housework, and load it ONLY with "those" type of songs -- the kind that, when you hear them, you can't help but get down!
