Use The Commercial Breaks

If you are going to sit there during your favorite tv show that is fine, but during those pesky commercials that no one watches, add in a set of push ups and/or sit ups. These will add just a little extra to the exercise that you should already be getting. emoticon

Jogging in place while watching TV

I used to mindlessly snack while watching TV. Now, I jog in place. I started out jogging through commercials. Now, I jog through the whole show. It gets my Fit Bit steps in, stops the snacks, and I feel more energy all the time. It's a win/win!

change up in category of foods

When hit a plateau, I change up the food groups I was using. Eating a little more carbs and vegetables versus protein. My body apparently was recognizing a routine, and the change up kicked in. Losing slow and steady.

Turn your workout into playtime

I attended great seminar where a guest speaker who has been in the get fit business for over 20 years said something almost too simple, I blew it off at the time but now I so get what she meant.

Remember recess? You got to run, jump rope, flip flop, do whatever you felt was fun. I miss those days as a grown up. So when that Fitness professional shared with the group we should bring back the fun into our fitness routine I thought why not! Getting fit should be fun.

Just Get Back Up

When I stumble or even fall I always try to remember that failing is not falling but choosing to stay down. Sometimes it may take longer to get up but all that matters is that I get there.

Treat It Like A Job

When I asked a young woman who had lost 200 pounds how she did it, she said that she treated weight loss like a job. No matter how she felt, she showed up. She showed up at the grocery store to buy the right food, she showed up to track her food, she showed up to walk, etc.

I grab my fat

When I want to eat something I don't need, usually a Snickers, I grab my belly fat. I reminds me that I already have a Snickers in storage.

Mmm, mmm, water

The tap water in my city is awful, so I buy bottled water in bulk (usually whatever's on sale), and take three bottles in a day. Each bottle is about 16 ounces, so just by being at work, I get 6 of my 8 cups daily. Plus, I don't spend tons of money in the vending machines.

Pre-portion fruits and veggies to take on the run!

I like to cut up, portion/weigh fruits and veggies into baggies and write the weight in grams on the bag so they ready for me to grab quickly as I leave for work in the morning. This makes it quick and easy to eat and track! They are also perfect snack size, and helps me get my 5 a day (minimum) in easily!

Fresh Frozen Fruit

I love my fresh fruit, but I found I was wasting my money when the fruit would go bad before I could finish it. Now to save money if it gets close to browning or going bad I now fresh freeze it. Slice it into small peices and reuse the fresh frozen for smoothies or fruit salad as needed!!!
