Spark Money

One of my teams had a challenge to put $1 in a jar each day you logged on Spark. I have put the money in every day since I joined on 11/9/09. I plan to continue doing so until my 1 year anniversary on Spark and then add $1 for each pound lost!

Tools of the trade

Seeing actual work done. I use a M2 from Curves that calculates my calories everyday If I'm low at the end of my day I jump on the eliptical to finish. I use a odometer on my bike and heart rate monitor for my runs. At Curves I am on the Curves Smart and it tells me calories. This all pushes me.

Don't Watch Cooking shows on TV

If you're a foodie like me, don't watch any cooking shows on tv, as they only make you hungry. Watch the learning channel or home and garden tv instead. This way you're not thinking about making that potato salad, but how to clear clutter out of your family room, etc.. emoticon

Tune out those little voices in your head!

Little voices in you head telling you that you can't? Or to go eat? Pop in your Ipod or turn up radio and block out those voices.

Staying Consistant with Exercise

I exercise 3-5 times a week. If I slack on my exercises I feel more tired and down on myself. Even though I sometimes don't feel like exercising I push myself to do it and then I feel great afterwards. So I would saying that exercising is like giving a gift to myself.

Break it down

Whenever I buy a large package of tempting food or even meat, as soon as I get home II use ziplock bags break it down into individual servings. For meat I break it down into one meal.

Temple Blessing

"This body God has given me, is a blessing. I promise him everyday not to mistreat His temple with starvation, diet pills, deprivation or excess exercise. Because if I do these awful things to his temple, I'm just showing him how unappreciative I am of this beautiful blessing in my life."
