Be a mentor

If it's not enough doing it for yourself, do it for someone else! I want to be successful as a mentor to my little sister. This is to improve both of us!

Workplace

Never take the elevator. Always use the stairs several times each day

Stairs

I take the stairs two at a time or run up them.

Be kind to yourself.

I learned to stop criticizing myself. I wouldn't say such cruel things to anyone else. So, why say it to myself?
You are doing something to improve yourself. Give yourself due credit and pat yourself on the back. This type of self talk reminds you that what you're doing is something positive and keeps you moving forward.

Eat a pound of vegetables every day

This is what did it for me. Get a kitchen scale and eat at least a pound of vegetables every day. They fill you up, and you have less room for junk. No food is off- limits, but who has room for a large dessert or second helping of meat when you've just eaten three grilled zucchinis or a shoebox sized serving of spinach?

Spiked water trick

I meant to buy water flavoring this week but forgot. I don't much get inspired by water, even bottled, and I can drink Diet Coke Cherry or Vanilla Zero by the VAT. This isn't good, even though moderate diet soda consumption is ok. So I got the idea to spike my bottled water with about an ounce of Diet Coke. The water spiked with diet cola has enough of the flavor to make it interesting, but it's still mostly water. It makes it much easier to get eight glasses a day.

Reminding Yourself of Why You're Doing This

We all mess up, but we can limit our mistakes if we remind ourselves of why we're doing this. I find it helpful to post my goals in places that I will see them constantly. For example, I have them set in a really pretty frame on my computer desk, I laminated them and use it as a bookmark, and I even have them written down on an index card that I carry in my wallet. It makes it a lot harder to spend money on junk food when I open my wallet to pay and see my goals staring me right back in the face.

Park as far away as possible!

I am a regular weight lifter/gym goer, but I still do the classic "park as far away from the business as possible". And I try to walk places that aren't unreasonable far apart. Really adds up on my step tracker!
