My SparkSummary Calendar

I was just told about this feature and it rocks. It tracks your daily calories, fitness minutes & SparkPoints. You can look back at a week or a month and see how you made out. You get gold stars on the days you made your calorie target. Now I want to count gold stars and maybe make them a goal!

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

Five BItes

Rather than saying absolutely not to a tempting dessert, I allow myself five small bites. Almost always after a bite or two I find that I am satisfied with the flavor and can step away. I rarely hit five bites.

Feeling Hungry??

When I get the urge to grab something to snack on, I remember a saying I learned through Positive Changes: "Appetite (craving) is of the mind; hunger is of the body." In other words, if my stomach isn't growling or empty, then my urges stem for a mental or emotional desire. That has been very helpful for me.

Water + Benefiber = steady weight loss

I learned this trick awhile ago. When I fill my water bottle up, I add 1 tsp Benefiber. Since I refill my bottle 3 more times daily, that means I have 4 tsp Benefiber total. It adds up to 60 calories. There's no taste, excellent for your health, and the extra fiber is like taking a appetite suppressant. Try it for a week, you'll feel the difference and your scale will show it also.

Baby wipes as instant stain removers (from a TV wardrobe person)

I learned this trick from the wardrobe person on "Friends': A baby wipe is an excellent instant stain remover when you spill something on yourself. It's what they use on the set on taping days if an actor spills! When a spill happens, blot the stain with a napkin, then blot with a baby wipe until the stain is gone. It works on coffee and most foodstains. I find even if I can't get it out completely, it will usually still wash out! I don't have kids but I carry a small pack of baby wipes anyway!

Keep Getting Up

Every time you mess up or fall down on your journey, keep getting up. Just keep getting up, and keep moving forward. You never know how your will to succeed motivates others watching. Keep getting up.
