You gotta breathe!

Breathing is very important when working out. The muscles need the oxygen to develop and you don't want to pass out emoticon . To help me with my breathing, I carry a piece of gum when i workout, AND IT WORKS!! The constant chewing prevents me from holding my breath because its forcing me to breath.

Excercising leads to Water Drinking

I don't like drinking water but I find it's a lot easier when I actually exercise! When you're really thirsty after a workout or after sweating a bit, you tend to want water rather than a sugary drink since it quenches your thirst better. Helps motivate me to work out AND drink water!

Brush Your Teeth

I overcome my urge to snack on unhealthy food by brushing my teeth and using mouthwash. Junk food doesn't taste as good with a minty mouth.

Put Fruit In Your Water

It's much more fun to drink water when I put pieces of fruit--i.e. lemons, peaches, kiwi, blueberries--in it. It lightly flavors the water, and if I use a clear glass, it's so visually appealing! No need to replace the fruit when refilling the glass, either. The flavor lasts for several uses.

Keeping an Eye on it - the Scale

After a 70lb weight loss, I still weigh myself everyday....it ensures that I can maintain my weight within a 5lb range, but enjoy trying new foods and adjusting my intake...without gaining a tonn of weight.

More water ...

Many, many days of not getting enough water, but I'm getting better with it. My secret - start as early in the morning as possible. Even better to get active as early in the morning as possible to increase the need for more water.

Thrift Store Junkie

I LOVE shopping at thrift stores but found that my collection of clothing & other things was growing too big for my house. So now, every time I shop at the thrift store, I donate. For every item I purchase, I donate an item.

The Plateau and How to Break Through It !

We all know it: The Plateau. It's when no further changes occur in weight loss, strength and/or fitness despite all your efforts. Reason: Your body has ADAPTED to your new and healthier lifestyle. It now "knows" that it has to survive on a smaller diet and therefore uses all the fuel it gets more efficiently. It now "knows" that it has to expect additional work (exercise) and does it with less effort. So, to break through the plateau you have to INCREASE and/or CHANGE the challenge for your body

Walk and Talk

When I have phone calls to return, or want to call a friend I need to get back in touch with, I head outside with my cell phone and walk around the track at my local high school. I can measure it by time and distance too so I can enter it in my fitness tracker. Another huge benefit is that it is nice to catch up with an old friend that you "haven't had the time" to call and chat with! emoticon
