Overflowing Closet?

If your closet is overstuffed, for each new item you buy, pull out 2 to toss or donate. Doesn't take long, and if you keep it up, you will actually be able to hang those new clothes you will have to buy as you lose weight!

Add a little challenge

My doctor has prescribed single leg lifts for my knee injury. While I do these, I "crunch" up so that I can feel my core muscles working at the same time. Adds a little more challenge to the exercise and helps my core as well.

Check out the WOO HOO board!

Pop into the Woo Hoo Message Board a few times a week and read someone's post. By giving a fellow sparker an "atta-person" you will also give yourself a lift! And everyone can use a pat on the back now and then!

Cinnamon

Add some cinnamon to your cereal or fruit... gives it a little "zing" and cinnamon is supposed to be good for your blood pressure..

Treading Water

Challenge yourself to achieve 10 minutes treading water this summer. I could only do 30 seconds when I started last year, but got up to 5 minutes in about 8 sessions. A great workout with no joint stress!

Get those arms moving!

Before I step into the shower I do those little arm circles. I started with 25, and now I do 150. I also do "swimming" strokes - and get my whole upper body going. Really gets the blood moving, and I can see those arms firming up.

Sugarfree Fudgesicles

This 40 calorie treat is my reward to myself almost every evening. You know that couple of hours past dinner when you just wish you had something... I keep them in my extra freezer so they are really frozen solid. YUMMY!!

Reusable Water Bottle

Invest in a metal water bottle (like the one Spark just added!) and use water from your filtered refrigerator if you have one. You are saving money over botted water, saving the environment, and saving yourself from BPAs!!

Bahama Rice Burgers

Bahama Rice Burgers are made from rice - no soy, no wheat gluten. they come in several flavors, although I like the original and the sausage! I am predjudiced, as the company is owned my my next door neighbor, but if you like non-meat burgers, or want vegetarian, or wheat free, try them!

Get Your Motor Running!

Every morning, whether I will be going to the gym or not, I spend 5 to 10 minutes doing a few exercises before I jump in the shower. Not things I track, but some days a couple of hundred arm circles, or maybe some lunges or marching in place... Just enough to rev up my body for the day.
