Before I fall asleep, I tell my self that I will wake up "well rested"and put on my workout clothes. I think about what snack I'll have first, and decide how long to exercise. (At least 10 minutes). The rest of the day I will plan while on the treadmill. Then I start counting sheep. 1...2...3...4...5. .......zzzzzzzzzzzzz
By doing this, I wake-up without having to make any decisions. Just get started, and the rest of the day will follow.

Every time I think I want to eat or drink something that is not positive for my weight, my diabetes or my high cholesterol condition, I stop and say, "I DON'T NEED THAT." Emphasis on the word NEED. Seems simple, but it works for me.
Instead, if I am home, I drink cold water with fresh lemon or lime squeeze. If I am out, I breathe deeply 6 counts in, 6 counts hold and 6 count slow release. 334
