Make list, have aplan and stick to it

I make a list before I go to the supermarket or shopping for clothes- and I stick to it. I don't purchase anything unless it is on my list. I've learned to save a ton of money by preparing a budget and sticking to my plan/list

Taking it one day at a time

I look at the weight loss journey that I am going through and realize that I am going to take it day by day cause we can all have our bad days and we all have our good days. By taking it day by day I find it's easier to change my habits my slowly than to stop "cold turkey".

A positive attitude

Keeping a positive attitude no matter what your status can make Sparking easier. When you are unable to exercise - at least the one you love - due to an injury. Don't dwell on it....give your knowledge to others.

Rest is so important

I've found that 7.5 or 8 hours of sleep are a must. If I don't get the rest I need, I drag through the day. I have to force myself to exercise and have a desire to eat lots of unhealthy food. If I get the sleep I need, then exercise is easy and the food temptations are don't bother me as much.

Stairs instead of Elevators

I took a firm resolution not to take anymore elevators, and I tracked it on "Other Goals." By now it has become such a habit that I "naturally" look for the stair case in a building and not the elevator. I can feel a clear difference in my heart rate.

soup mugs

When things get dull by eating soup or cereal all the time, I switch to coffee mugs or cups. I can take them out on the deck, or just at the table. Easier to handle.
