I sit down every Sunday alone and I re-comment to my weight loss goals and challenges. I find new races to enter, I look at my routines via my exercise journal and analyze if I need to increase what I am doing because I am bored or I just need to increase because my body has adjusted.
This helps me because I stay fresh, centered and motivated to do new things and have new goals accomplished week after week.
Go through a recipe book and plan out what meals you are going to have for the week before you go to the grocery store. When you just make a grocery list you tend to buy the same things week after week and throw them out because you are tired of them. Spice things up. Make new recipes each week and only buy the ingredients you need to save from throwing things out and wasting money! It's a great way to try new recipes and save money!
Since I found SP in Jan. 2009, I have found so many new recipes that use healthy foods. We're trying new things, finding new ways to cook old favorites, and are definitely NOT bored with eating the same (diet) foods over & over again! Try at least one new recipe each week!
I kind of groaned when hubby brought home a bunch of kale yesterday (after reading about the health benefits) - but I looked for an Editor's Choice Recipe and we both enjoyed it! Will make it again. This type of experience has happened many times through the last year!!
