Buy chicken with bones -- then make soup with leftovers

I usually buy my chicken with the bones in -- whether it's chicken breasts, thighs or an entire roaster.
Then I toss any left over carcass in water to cook for about 4 hours. Delicious broth and occasionally pieces of meat as well that were just too difficult to pull off the bone.
If I only have a couple of bones, I freeze them until I have enough.

Wall push-ups

Wall push-ups are a good way to get more upper-body exercise when you may not have time for floor push-ups, or maybe you're not so great at floor push-ups. They benefit chest, shoulders, arms/triceps, and core muscles. Step back just a little (safely) to "lean into the wall" more, and make the push-ups a bit more challenging. If you need to protect a wall from natural oil from your hands, try wearing non-slip or rubber gloves.

Bathroom walk

I always choose the furthest bathroom away from my office so I have an excuse to get in at least 5 more minutes of walking in my day! And drinking lots of water helps, because then I have to go every 30 mins! That's a lot extra walking!

eat lots of veggies before going food shopping

Just that. You're full, so hopefully no impulse buy and you are full with the right kind of food.

How important is it?

If something is important to you, you will find a way to succeed. If it's not, you will find an excuse to not do it.

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
