Paying for bottled water.

If you're new to adding water to your life and are trying to figure out how to cram in another few glasses of water..

Marching while cleaning!

I got a Biggest Loser workout CD. Twice a week when I get home I put it in the stereo and start cleaning my house which includes a lot of putting stuff away.

Applesauce for Oil

When baking, I use applesauce instead of oil. I get the packs of individual sized applesauce so that I don't waste opening a can or jar and the rest goes bad. YUM!

15 min to success

When I don't feel like working out I tell myself that I only have to do 15 min and then I can stop. Usually by the time I get to the 15 min I am through the hardest part and I end up having a great workout but if after 15 min I don't want to work out anymore, I don't. Don't lie to yourself.

know you deserve it

Every time I feel myself wandering I remind myself that I am losing weight for me and that I deserve it. In the past I had low self-esteem and some of those bad habits are still aound, I have to remind myself that I deserve to look good and feel great as much as anyone else does

All the support

This is the one true support group I have found that people really care about other people, and I know I need support. It puts a smile on my face when I log in and see how everyone is giving goodies and reading blogs. This is a true family!!!!

Planning ahead

I admire the spark members who are able to stay on track without tracking their food. It is I guess reserved to a small select group which I don't belong to. I don't like tracking but the times I have been successful I have. So once a week I take the time to plan it all in advance! It works for me!

Portion it out!

I was recently given a great big bag of my fave chocolate (Cadbury's Giant Buttons). Before Spark, I would have eaten the whole thing in one sitting and blown the day's calorie allowance on chocolate. Today, I weigh out 20-30g portions into tiny tupperware boxes and enjoy a guilt-free choc fix!

upset tummy

I was feeling lethargic today and remembered that a few of the kids at school I work had the gastro bug and sure enough, went to the doctor and he told me to eat nothing else but plain rice and so I made some and that is all I am having for dinner. It really is working.
