What You Don't Know May Help...

I cover up the display on the machines at the gym in order to focus more on the workout and not the time. Then as I start to feel tired I will peek at the display and realized how much time went by quickly--it helps to focus on music or the tv if there is one.

Work with your body...not against it

I've been learning recently that a plateau is when my body is trying to create a new set point because I've lost a certain amount from my last set point. I believe we should relax and practice maintaining our weight for a few weeks. Then we can try losing again.

Making my smoothies last longer.....

This works. I pour a fourth of my smoothie into a glass and the rest I freeze for another time. Then I add more ice and one cup of nonfat milk and blend away until creamy. It's good.

Spark Workouts

While on vacation or work trips I find the spark workout to be great. I take my laptop along and pull up a work out! Even the kids get into it when on vacation!

Tracking Food helps binge control

I'm always in danger of binge eating, out of control then depressed. I've noticed that I can contol and stop a binge by food tracking during the binge. I have done this the last 3 times I started bingeing and it worked. I stayed on track by tracking! Try it.

Start again now

If I slip up and eat something I didn't plan for, I try to tell myself "Just start again right now and things will be okay."

Recycling batteries

Instead of throwing used batteries away, they should be recycled. I use a Ziploc bag and hang it from one of the keyhooks in our kitchen. Once the bag is full, we take them to our local hazardous waste facility for recycling. You can recycle cell phone batteries, alkaline batteries, etc. this way.

Keep Going

Don't let other distract from your goal. People who don't understand will try to bring you down. Don't let them do that. Just keep your eye on the prize and keep going.

You're doing great!!

Find the Successful Person in Yourself

It seems like we can all see and appreciate the successes in others, but what about your own successes? Do you acknowledge how great you are when you eat grilled chicken instead of a cheeseburger with fries? What about each glass of water you drink? Each bite of fruit or veggie? Success is yours!
