Celsius Energy Drink

This little can of 10 calorie magic gives you instant energy when you are lazy and feel like skipping your workout. They claim to burn 100 calories per can (which I believe is because they make you feel fastastic and like you can do 10 extra minutes on the elliptical). Great product!

sweet craving

When you have an uncontrollable sweet craving, it's better to just get a single serving bar or bag instead of getting a bigger bag. The single serving is enough to satisfy your craving. A larger bag is easier to eat the entire thing before you realize what just happened.

Successful Workouts !!!

The secret of successful workouts is to have a variety of DVD's to choose from and rotate through to keep the muscles confused and your brain motivated. Treat yourself to lots of DVD's not only for variety, also as a reward. emoticon emoticon

Freeze soaked beans

Canned beans are handy, but have way too much sodium. Dried are better, but take too long to prepare. I soak mine and freeze the extra. They can go directly from the freezer into soup stock or boiling water.

To preserve veggies longer.....

Cut lettuce and other veggies into a large container that seals well. Put a paper towel on top and close lid and put container in frig upside-down. Every time you take out a portion -- change the paper towel -- veggies will stay fresh longer -- I use this trick all the time.

Do Something

Pick one small thing you thought you couldn't do. Write it down and pin it up somewhere. Then, go out and do it. Soon you will have a list of things you can do instead of things you can't do.

Want to lose an extra 26 lbs of fat a year?

If so, build 5 lbs of muscle! It is estimated that every pound of muscle added from resistance training burns about 50 calories/day. Adding 5 lbs of muscle to your body will burn an extra pound of fat every two weeks, or 26 lbs a year.

double workouts

Try working out TWICE a day- even if it means the same amount of time- try 30-60 min in the morning and 30-60 minutes later in the day. Get that metabolism moving again! emoticon
