I know...this could take some getting used to because putting our keys in a certain stop becomes routine. Even a habit....however....I recently read somewhere that taking your keys to bed with you is like your own personal alarm system. In the event of a break-in you can just push the alarm button on your key and scare away the intruder. I thought that was very clever...now where are my keys? Oh, under my pillow!!! :)

It sounds simple, but the key is SLEEP! I make it a priority to get at least 6 hours of sleep every night, and this helps me avoid illness, make better choices, and even maintain weight if I'm not eating all that well. I find that I gain weight when I don't sleep enough. Bonus? If you're sleeping, you can't eat! Automatic caloric deficit :)
If you find yourself hanging on to the cardio machines at the gym for dear life, turn the machine down a bit and LET GO! Don't let the machine help you along the way. You will burn more calories going slower by yourself than faster, using the bars for support.
Think of the bars as a safety net!
