Forget about your mistakes (after learning from them of course)

I sometimes have a problem at night and it shows up on the scale the next morning. However, I've learned that the faster I forget about it and get back on track, the better!

Load up your kitchen pantry with healthy food, snacks, veggies & frutis

I have made it impossible for myself to snack on unhealthy food by stocking my kitchen with ONLY healthy food. That way, I control what I eat at home besides it is a great motivating factor when I have to eat out where I remind myself that what I do at home cannot be undone elsewhere.

Yes, Man

I know it sounds silly, but being more positive has helped me A LOT!!! Eliminating simple phrases like "no, I can't do this" and "I feel silly" has done so much for me. I'm not very far towards my goal yet, but I am definitely on the right track to getting there.

Diaper Cream!

This might sound obvious but if I think I can get away without a shower after the gym I get "hot spots" in my body creases. It even happens in the summer if it is particularly hot. Use diaper cream with zinc in it on those spots and it will soothe your skin and keep it healthy.

INSANITY

This series of workouts really are the toughest CARDIO workouts on DVD. You have to be in pretty good shape already. Do not attempt unless you are already an advanced exerciser. You could really injure yourself.

Breadmaking

Baking my own bread has become easy and cost effective. I started using the "Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day" plan about 2 months ago and I love. I used to buy 2 loaves of bread a day for my family. Now, I bake it myself for a fraction of the cost.

Use the SP point system to your advantage

I aim to get all the points I can each day for one important reason (besides being competitive). The point system makes sure I am tracking, reading, learning, sharing, giving, goal-oriented, eating well and exercising. In other words, I keep myself "balanced" by doing all of the "sparkpoints".

Eyeing the Measurements

Sometimes it's difficult to stop the meal in progress and say "Hey wait a minute while I grab my measuring cup!" so it's good to train yourself to memorize what a cup or a half cup of grains or peas etc. looks like, so you can make your best estimate when you sit down to a meal at home or at a restaurant.

Think and ACT like a Skinny Person

Skinny people eat in moderation, exercise and are active. It isn't about depriving yourself of every pleasure in life... live your life like a skinny person and you will soon be one!

Another Water Tip

Buy several refillable water bottles (I prefer the stainless steel myself.) Keep at least four full of water in the refrigerator to have on hand. Then there are no excuses for not having time to get water before leaving the house; just grab a bottle and go. Good for the environment too!
