Stick to minimum 10 minute work out

I have an elliptical machine at home, that is rather stiff compared to ones at the gym. I make myself stick with it for 10 minutes, and I can usually last about 30-45. It is just getting thru the first 10 minutes that is the hardest for me.

Eat Chocolate

I'm a chocolate addict. I have been since I was a child. That was the hardest thing to let go, so I've decided not to. Don't give up your sweets completely. Just give yourself a fraction. Don't have a whole candy bar, have a fun size.

Batch Cooking with Recipe Calculator

I enter ingredients measured in grams. After the meal is done, I figure out how many servings it makes and weigh one portion in grams. I then change the title to include the amount of grams in one serving. I can freeze in larger portions and don't have to remember serving size.

Push past that barrier

I have been working hard on the elliptical at the gym. Some days when I get on and I think oh my I can only stay on here five minutes. I dig deep, push for 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and then I hit my stride and stay on for 20 minutes. I just have to push myself.

Write goals first thing each morning!

The first thing I do each morning, is to write my goals for the day in my journal, at the end of the day I write if I met my goals or need to work on them. It has helped me a lot!

Off limits cabinet

My husband does not have a weight problem and does not want to give up his sweets. So he has his own cabinet that he keeps his snacks in. I don't even open that cabinet. It keeps them off of the counter so I don't have to be tempted every time I go into the kitchen!
