Keep up with laundry and the dishes. How does housework affect fitness? Well, if I don't have a clean sports bra and clean toe socks for my run, I probably won't go. If my kitchen is a mess and the pans and plates I want to use are dir... Read more

Watch your drinks. Track them. Water is the healthiest option. Eight glasses per day is recommended, but I need more when running long in the summer. When I first started losing weight I drank a lot of Crystal Light, diet soda, diet lemonad... Read more

Music can be a big help. Don't feel like exercising? Listen to 10 minutes of upbeat music and I'm ready to go! Too wound up to slow down to eat a leisurely meal? Listen to some relaxation tunes, I call it "massage music", and once I'm... Read more

Sleep really does help. Sleep helps my energy level so I feel more like exercising. And sleep strengthens my resistance, feeling good increases my motivation to keep feeling good, and sleep reduces my urges to overeat. So when I haven't sle... Read more

Don't Starve. Eat enough good food to fuel activities, and an occasional treat is okay even while losing. For years I tried low calorie diets, 600 calories, 800, 900 or 1000 calorie diets. I'd lose most of the time but soon would regain. I... Read more

Don't sit and watch TV. Stated more positively: if you choose to watch TV, move while you watch! Way back in 2008 when I started on my current healthy eating effort, I recognized that eating at night after supper in front of the TV (especia... Read more

If cardio isn't fun, slow down! Well, at first perhaps no cardio was fun and I had to remind myself of the health, appearance, and energy dividends it would pay. But once I got pretty regular with cardio, especially running but Zumba or cyc... Read more

Don't forget tangy and sour foods. I first noticed when I was probably 10 years old, fat and not wanting to gain weight, that tangy, sour foods helped me control my raging sweet tooth. Our movie theater sold huge dill pickles and eating one... Read more

Rewards for accomplishments. When I first hit goal weight in March of 2009 at my Weight Watcher meeting, I was so excited. I had an impulse to get an ice cream sundae to celebrate and then laughed at myself! Instead I went to my favorite c... Read more

Pre-plan meals. I have resisted this HOW over and over, but I recognize that I have done my healthiest eating when I pre-plan. I love having a whole week's menus planned, but recognize it rarely works out as planned. Something comes up... Read more

Now that I've blogged 15 HOWs, I want to categorize them. I'm hoping to look for major omissions before I start adding some of the finer points, like I did with my WHYs. I was thinking SparkPeople's Secrets of Success Categories might be... Read more
