Start walking every day.

I would procrastinate about walking every morning. Now I just do it before I do anything else in the morning and it is done!

Simplifying my nutrition tracker food groupings

Numbers come hard to me, especially calories. emoticon I've learned to label my food groupings with the calories involved as well. For instance, instead of (milk and cereal), I now have "Milk and Cereal 195." I have a food group named "GLOP" which is now "GLOP 250." By listing the calories with the food group, it's easier for me to remember how much I'm eating without having to go into the collection itself. (I haven't tried this with my "favorites," but that's next.)

Exercise Goals! (Running for me)

Setting and reaching CONCRETE goals is the most motivating for me in my fitness and weight loss journey. Since I have a concrete date to run my first 5k, and a concrete path to get there using couch to 5k programs, it has been a HUGE motivation boost now that I have been on the path to reaching my goals the past few weeks. Plus exercise you KNOW you've done it or not, weight loss is sometimes a crap-shoot certain times with plateaus and such. emoticon

Fruits and Veggies! (Especially veggies)

Getting plenty of fruits and vegetables in is what keeps my weight loss going the right way. They are packed with vitamins for energy, healthy and full of fiber, more filling than other things, and vegetables especially are low calorie, while fruit helps with the sweet tooth! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Stop eating right before bed

I made a conscious decision to stop eating a couple hours before bedtime. It has made a tremendous difference in my weight loss efforts. I think maybe my body is more comfortable when it doesn't have to digest all night when it's already trying to be in recovery mode. Try it out!

Hot Lemonade

I love coffee but am not a tea drinker and know it's not a great idea to drink coffee right before bed but I do love a hot drink in the evening so I came up with a caffeine free alternative. I squeeze out the juice of a lemon (a Meyer lemon is best if you can find it). I add boiling water and calorie free sweetener. This hot lemonade is very satisfying on a cold winter night.

Bathroom exercises

I use the trip to the restroom to get a set in on my exercises. I pick an exercise for the day (like squats) and do 10 every time I use the facility. If you get your water in for the day you get a lot of sets in. emoticon
