When you get into "weight loss mode," remember that it takes time to reach your goal. Here are a few tips and tricks to making weight loss happen without becoming an overwhelming task in your daily life. If you're like me, you saw the scale or felt the tightness in your clothes and it made you say "something's got to change," and you've said it to yourself 100 times.
Rather than opting to diet and go into a full exercise plan on top of eliminating some of your favorite foods, pick one lifestyle change and stick with it for 2 weeks. Once you and your body have adjusted to the change, add in another healthy concept. Start with a diet, add a workout after 2 weeks

When you're overwhelmed by clutter or a messy room... take 15 minutes to declutter... you can get a lot done in 15 minutes... relax for a bit... not quite done? do it in 15 minutes intervals, good to pace yourself!
I read in a Magazine that if you come home to an unorganized environment, you feel overwhelmed and no energy- just thinking of what is looming infront of you. I feel this! It just makes me want to go to bed, and it seems WAY too overwhelming to know even where to start! So what I found was: give yourself 5 min. Say, "I'm going to power-clean, just for 5, thats not too much" Sooner than you know it, you will be burning calories cleaning a mess!
This has given me so much energy that I felt I wanted to go for a run afterwards, or continue the cleaning. It also helped during down time- I could really relax, so I could get my energy back faster! Even just try the 'at commercials' cleaning.. that will get you further too!
