On my day off from work, I cook up several protein dish items for the week. I store in separate containers and make enough for lunches, too. Add the fresh veggies at serving time. Less time spent in kitchen during the week, more time for exercise.
I keep a 16 oz glass next to my kitchen sink. Every time I pass the kitchen sink I fill up the glass and drink it all down. So with the time I am in the kitchen during meal times I easily down 2-3 of these glasses at each meal. Also, when a craving comes on I have made it habitual to reach for my glass next to the kitchen sink instead of heading to the fridge!
If you don't like water and have a hard time drinking it start out slow, I used to hate water, and now I drink it all the time. What I did was keep a 3 oz. bathroom glass in the kitchen, and everytime I went into the kitchen I made myself drink at least 3 oz. of water, eventually I started drinking more and more.
