How to beat eating in the evening

I do well all day long with keeping my meals on track, but evenings are a challenge. I've learned if I make some hot tea (herbal or different flavors) and sip it while keeping my hands busy with some type of craft (I love to knit), it really helps me not snack all evening and "blow " my efforts for the day.

Find a Challenge!

Find a challenge team to join. Being on a team helps keep you motivated. After all, you are not in it for just yourself, but for an entire team!

Cravings

I have tested it several times : if I tell myself " want to eat just one thing" in the afternoon, I always overeat ! So, now, I know that when I have this "permissive thought", I must say "no" !!

10 minute Movement Breaks

When I first started just 2 months ago I was SOOOO unfit. Just walking from the parking lot into the building I work in was enough. So I started parking at the far end of the parking lot and walking the long way in. I made a point at break time to just go out and walk around my building ONCE. By incorporating just two 10-minute movement breaks into my daily schedule everyday I started to see a difference. Now I can walk a mile at a time and look forward to those breaks! You can do it too!

Make a change...

Don't focus on making giant life changes.... Focus on making a small change. Small changes will lead up to changing a life.

Finally losing the weight

Tracking everything I put in my mouth and reading labels. I don't know how many times I've picked up a candy bar, read the label and decided it just wasn't worth it. I do know if I truly want that candy bar, I have to make adjustments to what I eat for the rest of the day. It's nice to know nothing is off limits.

change it up

when I get bored I find something new to do.
At 330 emoticon I walked the halls of the school for 15 minutes each morning. Later I added the stairs and another building. Once i had my fill of that I started spinning class. Now I road bike and jog. Now i'm 48% of my former self emoticon

Starting out slow and giving your body time to adjust

Most people start out exercising full on and when they feel the pain, they back off. I start out slow and add exercises and repetitions slowly. This gives my body time to adjust to the extra exercise time and repetitions.
There is no need to hurt yourself and make exercising something to avoid. Make it easy and fun. Add an exercise a month if you like.

A Rewarding Week

Instead of giving myself a (non-edible) reward for pounds lost, I give myself a reward for every week of healthy habits. This helps me stay motivated going week by week, and knowing that if I keep up a healthy lifestyle, the pounds will follow.
