Remember to CHALLENGE Yourself to Taking the Stairs Today at EVERY opportunity! You burn 4 calories for every 10 steps you climb.
When you're stuck in an office and just need something sweet, grab a sucker. They're not super low in calories, but they take a long time to eat and keep your mouth busy. As a former smoker, I have a serious oral fixation and this works great to get me though my afternoon slump. Plus no mess!
When faced with a plateau I've found I need to amp up my fitness routine and mix in some different elements. Now research shows a need more than 3 hours of fitness activities. I'm taking up dancing, adding biking again, and researching speed walking increasing my speed!
Fiber One has a NEW cereal, called Caramel Delight....I can barely stop eating it after one serving, it's THAT good! I use Blue Diamond Unsweetened Vanilla flavored almond milk (40 calories) with it, and I just LOVE it.
I love the Fiber One Cereals. Just like in the commercials you would think that it should taste like cardboard but doesn't. This cereal is so delicious!!!! I have had the Honey Clusters and the Raisin Bran.
Those under the bed shoe organizers are perfect for the storage of flip flops. They're designed to hold 12 pair but because flip flops are relatively thin I can store 24 pair. I can see them at a glance because the zipped cover on top is clear. Best of all it stores under the bed.
This isn't anything new but wear a pedometer everyday and make it a habit. You'll start to pay attention to how much you move and you'll be motivated to move more and beat your "daily records". You'll be surprise how well this works to keep you moving!!

Eat a piece of fruit 20 minutes before each meal
