Make exercise a fixed activity in my day, non negotiable

The best way I have found to stick to exercising is to make it like work, the only flexibility I allow myself is either a one hour walk at 7 am or a 1 hour walk at 7 pm. That is the minimum, no excuses, non negotiable. If I can keep promises to other people, I should also keep them to myself PERIOD

Get up and walk it out!

When sitting at your desk or in a chair for 8 hours aday, make sure you get up every hour and walk it out. It helps to get the blood flowing again the stiffness from setting in. I walk or stretch for five minutes every hour on the hour. It help keeps me fit and staying healthy.

Finish your meal with tea

I find that it is easier for me to stop eating at the end of a meal when I know I am full but I keep nibbling on things, if I make myself a cup of tea and drink that instead.

No Salt Added

For most veggies I buy frozen because I like how they taste better then canned, however when it comes to green beans to me frozen tastes funky. So, I recently switched myself and family to no salt added canned veggies. I did so by first doing half and half, one can of regular and one of no salt added. I continued this for a couple of weeks and now I only buy no salt added and no one in my family has even commented that they noticed a difference.

Brushing Your Teeth...

Brushing your teeth will help control food cravings after each meal. If you do not, whatever you ate last will cause unwanted cravings for more food.

Weight Loss

When I find myself getting disappointed that I'm not losing any weight, I tell myself that I did not get this way overnight so I'm not going to lose the weight overnight.

Squeeze in Physical Activity

Whenever I get up from my desk at work for a bathroom break or to fill my water bottle up, I take a round trip up and down the stairwell from our 3rd floor office. The time it takes is very minimal, but it's energizing and adds steps to my pedometer.
