Be mindful & own your decisions!

Many times my wife and I I catch ourselves just munching on something without thinking about it. You're not a horrible person for having a treat, or something that is "off plan", but make it a conscious decision and understand the consequences!

10 at a X

Ten at a time! Just ten minutes a day will help you build a healthy habit towards exercise!

You can do this anywhere, anytime. Speed walking for 10 minutes, treadmill for 10 minutes, heavy cleaning for 10 minutes, climbing steps for 10 minutes, jogging in place or jump jacks....the possibilities are endless. It all adds up to a healthy lifestyle.

Some may argue that this doesn't help with weight-loss but what we want to aim towards is building a healthy habit in our lives.

Yard work is the best

I just love knowing working in the yard that you tend to loose weight and tone. I get rewards in knowing that I am getting plenty of exercise and transforming my yard to beauty. It is the feeling of accomplishment or satisfaction knowing I did something for my home. The more I worked outside getting the fresh air and the sunshine the better I felt about myself.

Water

Keep a glass of water next to the bed. I've found that when I wake up I'm often very thirsty..so by keeping the glass of water by the bed its in quick reach and if I wake up in the middle of the night I'm not having to fumble around in the kitchen emoticon

track, track, track and fake it till you make it!

Track EVERYTHING you eat no matter how small.
Workout every day even if you don't feel like it. Fake it till you make it and it will soon become a habit that you look forward to.
Be consistent with both of these no matter what.

8 Glasses A Day

Trying to drink 8 8 oz glasses of water a day when I first started seemed monumental and was very stressful. So I decided to start by drinking 8 2 oz glasses a day and work my way up to the 8 oz glass. Now I have no trouble drinking 12-15 8 oz glasses a day. Start small and work your way up!

Keep Up ALL Your Good Routines!

When I have a day when I don't feel like exercising and I really want to over indulge in food, ALL my good intentions can easily get pushed by the wayside. If I force myself to do a little thing, it keeps me closer to getting back on track.

Track your food

It is amazing to see what you really eat when you write it down. What I find to be most helpful is the idea that it keeps me accountable and on track. When I am tracking my food intake I snack less and eat healthier. Being accountable for what you are doing so important to your success.
