Between meal snacks

I used to eat oatmeal cookies for snacks. I thought maybe even the oatmeal was good for me. Once I started to diet, I realized I was snacking on 225 calories of cookie!

I started keeping a basket of grape tomatos around, and I pop one or two of them when I feel the need for a snack. Calorie difference? A grape tomato is 2 calories.

Add activity to your down time

Use any sedentary time to add activity by squeezing your glutes and sucking in your tummy repetitively. I use this in the car on my commute, at my desk, on the couch and even in bed before sleep.

Peppermint Tea

I read in a magazine that Peppermint tea can help with satiety and curbing your appetite. I bought a box and really enjoyed the flavor and found that if I drink it in the evening instead of snacking I am satisfied without wasting calories and its caffeine free!

Motivating Quote

A coworker has this on her door, and while racking up steps on my pedometer, I walk past her door a few times a day just to read it. It says, "If you encounter a hurdle, aim higher and get over it!"

Using a check book transaction register

I had an extra check book transaction register. I am taking that where ever I go & recording all I eat the first column is the time I eat anything, the next is the date, & where it says description of transaction I put the type of food I ate & the next column I put how much. I put this in a plastic sleeve cover with a pen. On the outside of register I put the date I started doing this Where it says name of Financial Institute I put Eating Healthier for My Future Gain of Living Longer.

Measuring Cups

Easy measureing. Since servings are not always easy, for things like cereal, I keep the proper serving size measuring cup in the container. I get the exact serving size without having to pour into a measuring cup.

Put the fork (or spoon) down

Slow down - eat slower. It takes your brain time to catch up with what you're eating. Put down your fork or spoon in between every single bite - you'll be amazed at how slowing down and taking time to enjoy/savor your food helps! emoticon

They Can Because They Think They Can

I have been struggling with starting to eat healthy again and kept on asking myself...why can't I do it?
Then one day I got this in a fortune cookie..."They Can Because They Think They Can"
If you tell yourself you can do it, you will do it! NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!

Zumba for Wii

I love it. It's going to take me some conditioning to be able to do a whole 20 minute class but man does it work the whole body and I have more energy after I'm done with it!
