Read even the Healthy Food ingredient lists, SNEAKY Food industry!

Be sure to read all packaged food labels. The food industry is sneaky with the chemicals and word replacements. Soy and sugar replacements seem to be in everything!

Even the healthiest “packaged” foods can shock you. READ every label. The food industry can be SNEAKY!!

When I don't want to workout? I put on my workout clothes

I can't remember where I learned this, but putting on my workout clothes when I don't feel like working out somehow gives me just the boost I need to get me out the door. It works 99% of the time. So keep those tanks, tees, sports bras and biking shorts ready to go. Once you're dressed the reasons not to workout suddenly disappear.

Vision Board & GOALS

I "vision collaged" my back of the door mirror, this way I "SEE" it all the time!!! Everyday, sometimes several times a day! Foods, Exercises, Physically fit bodies, places I want to go and things I want to do!! Anything that is something to strive for or look forward to I put it on the edge of that mirror. SO when I do that one last check in the mirror before I sweep out the door I know what I want in LIFE!!! EVerything I want to live for is there: Prayer, Familiy, Friends.Healthy Lifestyle!

Off the couch, on the floor..

Determined to stay off the couch in the evening after a long day and exercise, I found if I sit on the floor I end up doing all my Calisthenics, yoga poses and stretching, while hanging with hubby and enjoying our tv show.

Goal Setting for motivation, planning, actions & SUCCESS!

Set Monthly goals in Micro, Mini, Medium & Major. Blog these at the end of the month for the following month then adjust "other goals" for tracking, accountability & celebrating!! If you are a list person, this works!! Spark Streaks can be set to support each months goals. Micro & Mini goals tend to be the building blocks to medium/major goals. This way you don't get over whelmed or miss steps. You set up your training and prep. My monthly blogs are helping me!! Check them out!

Just walk or 10 minutes...

Seriously this works every time. If I just don't feel like hitting the GYM I tell myself, "I'm just going to walk or do 10 minutes". Toss on your work out clothes and shoes & go out the door. I hit the gym and I am always excited that I pull through and do an amazing workout/run. I am NEVER beating myself up for going only if I don't at all!

Review and Tweak the Plan~

Whenever i'm getting off track or even when i'm feeling a little bored I look over my old blogs. Almost all of them give me a more positive perspective or solutions to what I want to tweak or change. Should I not feel more empowered or motivated to a new direction then I hit some of my SP friends blogs.

1/2 that portion...Break
fast,
Lunch, Dinner

Half that portion! I half the portion of whatever i'm about to eat. If it can't be halved without wasting part then I don't eat it Example: Sandwich you can half & save for later...cookie you would have to share if a person is available or throw the half away if you have no one to share it with. IF I would have to waste it then I don't eat it. Planning!
Don’t be a gingerbread woman, be a ROCKSTAR!

Fast breakfast that tastes like dessert!

Fast -- 1/2c chocolate soy milk (light, pre measured and frozen is best), blend with half a banana, 1tsp honey, couple drops of vanilla and a bit of flax seed. --- yummo!

Comfort matters so get picky!

Not all bike seats are the same! The first time back on a bike, the seat hurt so much just after a mile or two. The next day I got a "noseless" bike seat. It is amazing! No more pain in the... you know!

Climbing hills on a bike

To make climbing hills on your bike MUCH easier, do this:

Get a good pace going before you reach the hill
Sit back in your seat, try to keep a steady pace and when you feel your legs slow down, drop to a lower gear. Also, gently rock the bike side to side.

Make a game out of it!

It can be tough to get your cardio in when you see it as exercise. Instead, make a game of it. Compete against a friend or do what I'm doing- and imaginary cross country trip!

Where Is Your Cardio?

You can benefit from multiple cardio sessions throughout the day. If you cannot get in a single 30-45 minute session, 3 or 4 10-15 minute sessions can help you too. So if you don’t have the time to do it all at once, break it up throughout your day.

Knock out exercise without making time for it - Bike to and from Work or School

I have a 45 minute bike commute (each way). If I drove, it would take me 30 minutes. By biking, I am guaranteed 90 minutes of exercise helping both me and the environment. If I get home and don't want to do anything else, I don't have to and I have still got 90 minutes in the books.

Bike Commuting

I know I already told everybody about running errands with your bike, but lately I've started commuting with my bike, and I am amazed with the results. Not only I get my exercise done, but I also save and average of 40 dollars a month, just in gas!!!

Too Busy in the Evening, Try Mornings!

When you find yourself too busy in the evenings to fit in a workout. Try to commute to work in a different manner or get in early. I now bike to work and walk to lunch to fit in exercise I normally would have to go without during busy weeks at the office.

Do it with your bike

Run errands riding your bike if you can (even grocerie shopping). The amout of gas you save is amazing! I've been doing it for a while and I am really satisfied.
And you save money by getting a workout without having to pay for a gym.
