Transforming Recipes from Food Shows!

I watch Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, and Man vs Food. These shows are crazy and feature rich foods and ridiculous challenges. What I do is get the recipes then substitute healthier ingredients.

Desk Workout

I am very fortunate to work at home, so when I am not on the phone I can sneak in a few squats, standing push ups or just walking in place. It helps to wake me up too!

Change your default

If your default is to eat comfort food to relax (especially at night!), change your default - switch to blogging, drinking herbal tea, working out or anything healthy..and make this your new default. emoticon

I love soups!

Every weekend I make a big pot of soup (chicken & rice, split pea, lentil, etc) with lots of good veggies. Then, during the week, when I come home from work starving I can heat up a bowl and it keeps me satisfied ( and away from the snacks) until dinner is ready. emoticon

Realistic Workout Schedule

Be realistic when determining your workout schedule! When I first decided to exercise, I'd aim for 5 times/week. However, with a busy schedule, I'd usually miss 1 (sometimes 2). That would just make me feel unaccomplished and demotivated - even though I had worked out at least thrice that week!

Now I always opt for 3 times/week - and I have never missed any workout :)

Talk and Walk

I enjoy talking on the phone especially because now that I am out of college a lot of my friends live far away. When my friends and I chat we can talk for an hour or even longer. Instead of chatting to them while laying on my bed, whenever someone calls for a talk I take my phone with me and go for a walk. I tend to walk at a faster pace when I'm talking too, yet I barely remember I'm exercising because I'm so interested in the conversation!

20/20

My husband and I made a commitment to at least do the 20/20 workout everyday. 20 sit-ups and 20 pushups no matter what. We would get in bed and one would ask, did you do your 20/20? No would be the reply- usually for both of us so we would roll out of bed do our 20/20 and then get back in bed. This was a great way to start getting back into the workout routine- it literally only took a couple of minutes but adds up when working out. Having somebody to ask helps keep me on track. emoticon

Positivitity

Surround yourself with positive people and positive things will happen, surround yourself with negative people and guess what happens.
