Get More Vegetables

Preparing vegetables in a way you REALLY like them will help you make a good choice more often. emoticon

Hamburger - Seriously

I hope I don't get slammed for this, and whether it is healthy is arguable.
For a few weeks now I started to eat a hamburger per day. 390 calories. One meal. Substitutes for dinner. No distractions preparing a meal. I eat lots of fruits and vegetables for the rest of the day. Makes me stay within my calorie range so much better than when I tried vegetarian eating. It's just effortless, satisfying. I eat a regular in-n-out burger, with onions, nothing else emoticon

Never Give Up

When I weigh in for the week and the number on the scale isn't the one I wanted to see, I don't freak out over it, I don't beat myself up or decide to give up. Instead I take a good long look at myself in the mirror and find five things that I like about my body. Five things that I didn't like BEFORE I started eating and acting healthy and I remind myself that I'm happier than I've been in my life.

trading books

When I moved, I had a ton of books that I really didn't need anymore, but still wanted new ones. I found a site- swap.com, where I can list the books I have and the books I want and it sets up a trade between members. All you do is pay for shipping. I like it a lot. I've gotten some things I really wanted, while getting rid of some books I no onger had interest in.

Just Say No

It is hard. In the past I have not had much will power, but now I want to lose weight more than I want to eat things that are bad for me.

Exercise while talking on the phone

Instead of sitting or standing still while talking on the phone, I try to do a little exercising like marching or running in place. I have a cordless phone so sometimes I walk from one end of the house to the other or walk up and down the stairs. It's amazing how many calories you can burn during a 10 or 15 minute phone call! Also, its helps make the time go faster when you call a business and they put you on hold.

Soup without the high sodium

With having flu this week I didn't have much of an appetite.
I took a can of chicken noodle soup and added 3 cans water instead of one.
Stir fried some frozen peas, carrots and onions and added them to the soup for extra nutrition.
Very tasty without the concentrated salt.

Use Two Plates

Place a small plate on top of a regular size plate-have fun and try 2 different colors. Makes portions appear larger than they are and every person at the table has the same size plate. Using a salad fork works well. slows eating since less is placed on the salad fork making it seem your eating more food.. Very emotionally satisfying.

Hope is not a plan.

Sorry Big "O", hope is not a plan. After not being active for almost a decade, I committed to a basic plan of getting back in shape. Starting from a basic framework, i received additional guidance from professionals and others that helped fill in the details. This includes a referral to the wonderful resources available at SparkPeople. Envision the future you want, start with a basic road map, commit, then engage and press on (and enjoy the journey)!
