Weigh your food to weigh your goal weight!

My food scale sits on the kitchen counter and travels to the table when I am serving family style. It is harder to cheat (you can't mound the measuring cup!) and really helps me keep my portions in check. Most foods can be entered into the food tracker by grams, and portion sizes almost always include a gram equivalent on the label.

Spark Point Priorities

Ever wonder why the top two items on your SparkPoints page are tracking your nutrition and your exercise?? Just maybe it's because those are the two most important steps to success. The rest of the site is education and fun which is all good, but always remember it's what you eat and how much you move that will make the difference!

Just go!

Don't spend to long thinking if you feel like exercising or not. Throw on your shoes and GO. If you think about it too hard, you'll talk yourself out of it.

Getting your water intake

Drink one glass of water (mine is 5 oz) at the gym before you start your work-out, one during and one plus some after your work-out and you will have 2 glasses drank in no time.

When you see or experience bad behavior by others such as bad driving, tailgaiting,

rudeness, and other behaviors, rather than focusing on that individual and his/her behavior, notice instead all the other people you encounter during the day who behave kindly, ethically, courteously and rationally. There are many, many more of them if you look for them. The everyday kindnesses and courtesies of others to yourself and other people may not make the evening news or be a topic of break room vents, but they are the ones who smooth our daily existence and renew our faith in one another.

Observe and correct

I monitor myself and my habits to make sure that I am on the right track and if I fall off I just get back on. I have come too far to go back to where I was.
