smaller meals more

I try to mix up the foods I eat. I try to eat smaller meals more often. Lots of different foods. It helps me feel less deprived. I also enjoy the hungry girl cookbook lots of low calorie recipes.

Switching up the exercise!

When I have reached a plateau in the past, I have switched my exercise routine. For instance, I would walk one mile in the morning and one mile in the afternoon. One of those miles I would walk very brisk and the other at a slower pace. I have found that I just have to exercise more!!

Using the Credit Card

I use the credit card for EVERY purchase (unless it is a really small store and I want to help the owner.) It gives me points which are valuable, but more importantly: When the statement comes I can check every expense and make adjustments in the future. I know exactly where and how I spent my money

Learn to enjoy it!

At first I hated to go to the gym. SO I learned to plan a healthy snack that I loved for my after gym time. Now when I exercise, I can look forward to that VIta Top muffin top with peanut butter or whatever enjoyable snack I have planned and it keeps me going.

Meal Planning

I take a half hour on Sunday Morning to plan out my meals for the week. This way I don't have to scramble each morning making sure I have a healthy meal ready when I get home from the gym. I prepare meals in the morning befor work, so that my husband can put it in the oven when he gets home!
