Linner! My secret weapon for staying within my calorie range.

You've heard of brunch, why not linner? When I'm hungry for a nice steak or other higher calorie restaurant meal, I make room for it on my nutrition tracker by eating a late lunch/early dinner. I eat a light snack at lunchtime and another in the evening and have one larger mid afternoon meal.

Round up

We round to the closest 5 or 0. When we pay a bill or for any item we buy, If the total is 22 we round to 25 and "forget" about the remaining 3 dollars, If is 26 we round to 30. At the end of the year that "forgotten" money sure adds up

Take lots of pictures

Before pictures are great even if they hurt. You'll have something to compare results to. Don't forget to take pictures during your journey too. Its great to have pictures of doing active things, like hiking, walking, sports, etc. These moments will make you proud and motivate you even more.

Favorite show workout

When I am really having a hard time getting motivated to workout, I DVR one of my favorite shows or pop in my favorite movie and then pull the treadmill out in front of the tv. I am more likely to workout longer because I'm not thinking about walking I am thinking about my favorite show!!!

Stay Full

I often get hungry between meals. A glass of water and an apple are life savers that set great examples for my students.

Get Strict With Yourself

Moderation not working? Can't control your cravings? Get strict with yourself! Go a whole day- a whole week- a whole month- without junk food, sweets, soda and anything else you binge on. You will see amazing results and feel accomplished.
