A new day!

We get the chance each day to start anew. If you didn't do as well as you'd like the day before, wallow for a minute then let it go and move forward, it's a new day. If you did a great job, revel for a bit and then move forward, it's a new day!

Snacking

Spend some time making fruits and vegetables easily accessible. As soon as possible after bringing your produce home, wash, cut up, and store in clear containers. You (and your family) are more likely to reach for these ready-to-eat healthy choices. I also found we have much less spoilage.

Figuring out what works

I have OA in one hip and can't move as quickly as I need to to get my heart rate up during cardio. I've learned that moving my arms, and keeping them above chest level, easily helps to raise my heart rate. I get an upper body workout at the same time, and have improved my balance and coordination.

Conscious thinking

Stores deliberatetely stock tempting treats in your line of sight. It's so easy to sabotage yourself by buying and eating based on impulse. When you're tempted to make an unhealthy, on the spot purchase, choose to put it back. Then put the money you would have spent in a reward or goal fund.
