Sharing

Sharing my positive attitude and the good I see in others comes right back tenfold ;^) When I see someone in a nice outfit or a pretty hairdo or a smile on their face I tell them even strangers. It seems to brighten their day and brightens mine as well ;^)

Eat only what tastes good!

I try to make sure that everything I eat is enjoyable and tastes good. If it doesn't I put it aside. For me this reinforces my "choosing" and puts me in control of my food rather than the other way around. Imagine--even things like cookies may not be up to my taste standards emoticon

The elevator can be an exercise site

Some days, my knee objects to my use of the stairs. While I wait for the elevator, I do some stretching and, while in the elevator, do hip flexors, squats or other stretches. Then I walk the long way around the floor to my office. The ride is not wasted &, through the day, I can get 10 or so in.

Visualize

If you don't always feel like exercising when you start out just visualize the end goal. The vision board recommended by SparkPeople is a great tool. It takes time to adjust in the changes to your lifestyle. Be kind to yourself knowing you will get there because you want to get there.

Recycling

Our recycling company wants the plastics and can rinsed out, but I find it a huge waste of water to rinse out some items. So instead I fill the container with water and let it sit-then it usually just needs a quick swish to be rinsed out well enough. emoticon

Reevaluate you Pantry...

REALLY take a look inside your pantry and your refrigerator....will the food in there make you FAT or will it make you THIN and HEALTHY.? Just because we stay within our calorie range doesn't mean we are eating right. So stock FRESH foods of all colors to get the best results and remember protein.

Free Workouts

Instead of exercising at the gym, our group meet at the park, beach, track, and mall to do circuit training. Those of us that participate in organized exercises bring our new moves back to the group. We have a fun combination of different types of exercises.
