Whenever I feel "hungry" between meals, I reach for my water bottle and drink at least 8-12 oz.
This practice has helped me to get beyond the cravings and taken my mind off my so called "hunger". Drinking water fills the void, helps you feel fuller longer, so that you can make it to your next meal without cheating on sweet or salty snacks loaded with empty calories. Water is completely calorie free! And it's healthy! 274
You know those pages of exercise cut-outs that are in the fitness magazines? I never really knew what to do with them but thought that using them would be great. I now clip them, hole punch and keep them on a metal ring that I bought at the office supply store. I just open the ring and add new ones to it every month. When I need ideas or help with proper form I can flip through the cards easily and locate just what I need!
