Don't stop yourself from feeling the joy.

It's okay to step back once in awhile and just enjoy the moment. Even in tough situations - it's important to smile and laugh here and there. Don't restrict yourself from doing things you love because they're "not important" or because you think you'll be criticized for doing them. Let yourself enjoy life even if you're not at the best place you could be. You only live once - make the best of it.

Thank God

No matter how bad your situation seems, it could be worse! When you're down, thank God for even the air that you breathe, and praise Him; it'll change your perspective!

Motivating Quote

A coworker has this on her door, and while racking up steps on my pedometer, I walk past her door a few times a day just to read it. It says, "If you encounter a hurdle, aim higher and get over it!"

Change the way you think!

I've found that one of the best ways for me to stay motivated is to think in terms of what I CAN do, rather than what I HAVE to do. Yes, I HAVE to exercise to get healthier, but my body is physically able to put me through those paces. It sounds cliched, but when I compare myself to those who are physically unable to exercise, it makes me much more willing to put in the effort! So say to yourself "I am ABLE to do this workout", rather than "I HAVE to work out".

Water Intake made easier

We buy bottled water, so at the start of each day I put 4 bottles of water on my side kitchen counter, whch is equal to 8 glasses. I try to have mini goals in mind, such as by lunch I should be going for the 2nd bottle, by mid afternoon the 3rd and by dinner time the last one. I often find myself getting a 5th bottle out after dinner. I also find I drink more water when I pour it into a cup.

Substitue half of the sandwich for salad

I found that eating half a sandwich with a salad at lunch is just as filling as eating a whole sandwich. Now I am saving extra calories by doing so and having a healthier lunch!

Get at LEAST 8 hours of sleep every night

If you don't get enough sleep it puts extra stress on your body which makes you hold onto that extra fat. Sweet Dreams.....

Saving your bacon

When I fry bacon, I fry the whole pound, drain between paper towels. Any that is not eaten at that meal, is put between fresh paper towels, inserted in a plastic bag and frozen. Handy to grab a slice or two and microwave and cuts down on the fat!
