When I pet my cat and she starts purring, I know she is happy, content and relaxed and a few minutes of petting her makes me happy, content and relaxed. It also gives me a positive attitude and motivation for the day. Any pet can do this. Most are always there and willing to let you pet them.

Guilty pleasures don't have to cost you calories! I'm in Iraq, work out alone in my quarters and use Pandora.com which allows me to "create" my own radio station that streams through my laptop. My go-to workout station at age 39? "Britney Spears Radio" Turns out that randomly selected songs from various pop princesses are super-workout friendly and oddly empowering. No one but me (and now YOU!) has any idea of my secret indulgence...shhhh!334
PS - I also destress by singing along to "Barry Manilow Radio" and relax to "Josh Grobin Radio"...
Knowing your calorie enemy before consuming is an easy trick.
I've found that if i put in my meals before even preparing them, I can make adjustments accordingly if I'm a little high on the fat side, or low on protien. It's helped me immensley. And with SP's MOBILE application, I have no excuse not to do it all the time.
