Choose a few healthy Breakfast and Lunch combos that you enjoy and know will meet your daily nutrition and calorie goals.
I use this You On A Diet strategy to make my busy work week easier and to stay on track. For example, I make a big batch of healthy, hearty soup on the weekend, and then pack individual bowls. Each day for lunch, I just grab one of these, some whole grain crackers and a piece of fruit. Easy!
I start my day with a good breakfast, I carry friut with me when I know I am going to be out a few hours. I stay within my calories that are given on SP. My biggest secret is Walking...I made a daily goal to walk at least 120 minutes a day. Walking daily has made my journey a success.
I step out my back door and take off. I don't have to worry about what to wear, I save money on gym memberships, workout clothes, and my vehicle, ect. I use a pedometer helps me know how many steps I've taken, and a MP3 helps with me get more steps in my mile.
I have lots of water or herbal tea through out the day
I was never a breakfast person but now I always have breakfast to start out my day that way I know that I won't eat to much for lunch and I won't make the wrong choices through out my day, my motivation is to keep going and I know that making poor choices is not an option any more, I am half way to my goal weight and I will not let past mistakes rule my life, this time it's different I have made a lifestyle chose and I am not calling this a diet, my health depends on it.
To lose weight I really don't need to have a whole gym in my house having the out side is good enough, I get the benefit of the fresh air and it helps me clear my head, my favourite breakfast is spelt bread with low fat cream cheese and herbal tea with splenda
