Drinking my water

In order to help make sure I get 8 glasses of water a day (because I am horrible at remembering) I have one for every hour I am at work. Not only does this help get me away from my desk and walking around for a couple of minutes, it ensures that I have my 8 cups before I leave for the day!

Weigh in every day

But don't take any fluctuation, up or down, to heart. Spark is about learning how our bodies work - how they react to the sodium from yesterdays nachos, how they retain water after hard work outs, how fast we can lose water weight.

Love Yourself First!

I find that when writing notes as reminders to do chores, if I address them to myself as if I was my own significant other I'm more likely to do them. "Sweetie, could you take out the trash, please?" is just much more loving and caring than, "Trash."

Spice it up!

Use Tabasco Sauce in lieu of salt. It adds a ton of flavor to your meal and 1 tsp has only 30mg of sodium.
