Use Spark Recipes!!!

Instead of running out of the house to the grocery store to get NEW items, why not search what you have in your house, do a search on Spark Recipes and see if you have existing food items and use them up? I had some diced tomatoes, canned corn, etc. and made a lovely soup!!! Search 5 Ingredient Soup. Another idea - see what is on sale at the grocery store, write out your grocery list and see what you can make by looking at Spark Recipes!

Sneaking in Exercise Every Work Hour

Unless I'm in a meeting or on a call I have my task manager alarm set to ding me once an hour - I then get up and MOVE - Could be squats, wall push ups, calf raises, marching in place or just stretching. This way by the end of the day I've added in extra bits of movement and feel great!

Morning Exercise

I find that I do much better when I start my day with yogilates. It is great stretches, that really wakes up your body. After that I am ready to do other exercise such as cardio or strength training.

A body in motion, stays in motion!

Omit unhealthy carbs; sugar, bread pasta

To endure means to suffer patiently. To envision a better thinner body I endure by abstaining from temporary treats that taste good. Also if I'm hungry or craving there are many low carb healthy options.

Jin Shin Jyutsu for Weight Loss

I started Jin Shin Jyutsu, a Japanese form of hands-on healing, because I was fascinated by its effects on my mood and energy.
After two weeks of daily practice (10 minutes or so), I noticed I had lost around 3 kgs or so. This was when I started taking Jin Shin Jyutsu even more seriously. It can be a great help for almost any psychological and/or physical issue and is a beautiful art as well.

Tracking water intake

Every morning I fill a half gallon pitcher of water and drink from that all day (adding ice when necessary). Easy way to track 8+ cups of water

Buy everyday bread

Hi, in France, bread is an everyday meal. And fresh bread is so better ! emoticon So I buy bread only for two or three days, and go out to buy some fresh one by feet : it makes me walk 15 minutes ! emoticon
