When you travel, make it a point to pack everything you'll need to workout on your trip (clothes, shoes, ipod, stretchy bands, list of exercises, etc....) FIRST. That way you won't forget anything. You'll be more likely to work out if you've invested some suitcase real estate on workout gear, too!
I just have to give a shout out to Philosophy Brand Bath and Shower Gels. They are the BEST smelling bath products I have ever used. I like the food flavors: red velvet cake, cinnamon hot dots, creamy white frosting, and crispy marshmallow treat. Using them in the shower satisfies my urge for a sweet treat, without any calories!
Lisa Lillien is a blogger, cookbook author, and (just lately) TV show host who makes FANTASTIC low calorie dishes. You can sign up for her blog at www.hungry-girl.com. Her tasty, fun recipes have helped me learn to enjoy eating well.
When you make playlists for walking or running, put your MOST motivating songs near then end, when you'll need their impact. My current favorite is "Sing a Song" by Earth Wind and Fire. I would be impossible for me to stop running while I'm listening to it!
I found these little gems in the freezer aisle at Costco. They are microwavable, delicious, and filling! Each single serving has 140 calories with only 2 g fat and 9 g protein. Great with a salad for lunch at work. Yum!
I always have a little (60 calorie) carton of fat free, sugar free yogurt available. The little cartons will stay fresh outside of the fridge for a few hours, so I'll even pack one in my purse. One little serving packs enough protein to keep me full for a couple of hours - preventing dangerous binges later on. Try it, it works!
