If you can; put SparkPeople app on your mobile/cell. When you work out you can log your activities as you go along. If for some reason your app doesn't work due to bad signal, use a notepad on your phone and record your results and put in calorie, time and distance results.
This helps me keep track on how much fitness I've done for the week and how much I need to do ahead of my next goal. It's especially brilliant when I go to the gym as I can listen to my music and log stuff down on my BlackBerry at the same time.

Think you have no time to exercise? Use those minutes you spend just standing. Sometimes when there is a minute left on the timer when I am cooking something, I'll use that minute to do jumping jacks, squats, high knees, etc.
Taking advantage of those idle moments can add up to some time that you are moving.
I never put anything on my credit card that I can't pay off when the bill comes in. I like to use it for all my purchases as I get points that I save and I use the points to purchase gift cards for the kids and grandkids at Christmas. That saves me from having to come up with extra $$$$ to buy the gift cards every year.
Several times a year, my credit card company offers bonus points in several categories and I always take advantage of that.
