walking

I try to walk everyday, except if it is raining or snowing. It is one of the exercises that really has helped me loose the weight. Sometimes I walk 25 minutes and sometimes 30, 35, 40 etc.

chore/reward

A chore is only a "chore" when you let you brain think of it in a negative way. I now see chores as opportunitis to burn caloris...it's mind over matter. So, go rake the leaves and reward yourslf with a crisp juicy apple!

Use what you have available

I use my surroundings to get in "extra" exercise. I "live" and work downstairs in my townhouse but the upstairs is part of my home/life and I have a list of things I can/need to do upstairs. I always use the upstairs bathroom, for example, not the downstairs one, etc. emoticon

stretching

My co-workers have become completely used to me doing body stretches while carrying on a conversation with them. There are a lot of them that can be done while sitting in a chair or standing. I of course avoid the sitting on the floor one! Oh how nice it would be to work at a daycare. LOL

Extra Exercise

Instead of just doing 1 big shopping trip, I make multiple smaller trips. This keeps me moving for a longer period and hopefully burning more calories.

Drink water lose weight

While I am preparing my breakfast, lunch and dinner, I drink 2 cups of water. The water helps to keep me from over eating because it fills me up and it adds to my over all health during the day. After my daily workout I drink 2 cups of water to replace what I have lost and this brings my total up to 8 cups already. If I work out twice there is 10 cups of water and then in the evening when I am relaxing, I will have another 2 cups. How easy is that to get your H2o into your daily recommendations

Scheduling fitness

I setup a schedule for working out on my work computer. In Outlook I schedule when I am going to work out and set it on weekly repeat. I set reminders 20 minutes before I have to leave so I make it to the class/gym on time. Definitely helps when I'm focused on something.

A newsy sugar determining fact

When looking at how many grams of sugar are in a food, or drink, divide by 4(32g divided by 4 =8). This tells you how many tsp of sugar are in a serving! 8tsp is far to much for this Sparker!!

Perspective to get back on Track

If you got a traffic ticket, you wouldn't spend the whole day breaking traffic laws. So why would you blow the whole day over a slice of pizza? by Beth Donovan 2009
