A little bit of butter - 1/2 pat on 1/2 of an English muffin, a few thin slivers of cheddar cheese - less than 0.5 oz on a fried egg, a few cranberries and 1 tb of chopped walnuts on a salad, seasoned rice wine vinegar with red pepper flakes instead of traditional salad dressing. Little things keep the color and flavor going but the calories down and contribute to permanent healthy changes that I can enjoy the rest of my life. No deprivation, no dieting, no "NOs." Stress free!

I started mini fitness challenges that I am able to do while at work, such as squats or lunges. I have my own office so it is easy for me to just shut my door and do things, but sometimes I would do them in the bathroom or while walking where no one else was. It helps gives that little bit of extra fitness in where you would normally have none.
I have always been an "all" or "nothing" kind of gal...meaning I ate the whole container of ice cream or none at all....the whole bage of chips or none at all. I am pretty sure some of you know what I am talking about. After celebrating my 1 month SP Anniversary and a weight loss of 11 pounds I want to share a secret of success...Moderation. Everything in moderation...food, exercise, rest and fun! 134
