My dog is my favorite "tool." In the year and a half I've had her, playing and walking with her provides more motivation to move than any inanimate tracker I've used. :)

I pay attention to the fedback from my fitbit and I would never track my sleep or activity as well as it does.
YET - Keeping my food tracker every single day has the greatest impact on my weight loss journey. So I make sure I log every bite.

Ah yes, my fitbit died. Took me a while to decide on a new one but I miss the sleep insights and step reminders too much to wait anymore!

Hunting, fishing, gardening, and preserving tools. It’s a bit of an extensive list.

There is no bad food, only bad cooks.

For me......


Primary Tools
1. Rules (regarding appropriate body maintenance: fuel, exercise, sleep, etc)
2. Firm Resolve (to adhere to my rules)
3. Love/Support (from God, family, and friends) MOST IMPORTANT

Secondary Tools
1 Comfortable shoes and workout clothes
2 Music
3 Basic cookware (stove, pot, microwave, blender)
4 Indoor cardio equipment (I shamefully admit I rarely run outdoors anymore)

What are your favorite tricks and tools for maintaining a healthy life style?

I've got some things that help me in the kitchen:

This olive oil sprayer is awesome! It doesn't clog, and a couple of spritzes is all I need for an entire pan of chopped veggies to roast or grill. It's much easier to coat the surface of a pan or a food without accidentally using too much. I weigh the bottle before I spray and then after to get the amount used. evooilsprayers.com/

Nutritional yeast: love, love, love this. So yummy on veggies, eggs, salads, and in things like eggplant "meat"balls. My family doesn't care for it but they don't notice when it's part of a recipe. It doesn't taste like cheese exactly but for me it's just as good (especially when paired with avocado)

Everything But the Bagel seasoning: my new favorite to go on anything savory including eggs, salads, meats, veggies, and in yogurt dip. Found in the spice aisle or alongside the bagels!

A good food scale - the quintessential must have. I do everything in grams... my scale does fractions for ounces (e.g. 5 1/2), which I hate, but not enough to buy a new one :)
