Measure your food!

Don't eyeball it. I was surprised how much hummus I was consuming. 2 tablespoons is not that much. Don't fool yourself. Get out those measuring cups and your scale. It will make a huge difference.

Pick one thing to work on today

Pick just one thing you want to focus on today and then do it. It could be anything- walk more, drink more water, up your fruits, get more sleep.
Just make that your goal for the day and then pick a new one tomorrow.

Tricks for adding veggies

Add chopped red, orange and yellow peppers to a meat sauce made from lean ground turkey for a healthy pasta with meat sauce. I even shop up zucchini and add it to the sauce.
