Develop A Positive Attitude

I see the positive side of all circumstances and situations. Being positive won't prevent problems from occurring but will lessen their effect on us. Always believe in yourself and trust that things WILL work out for the better.

Rejoice in the progress

Some days we just need to congratulate ourselves on how far we've come. there aren't a lot of outward signs of our diet yet. we aren't even close to where we hope to be. we still have a long way to go. That's okay. we need to rejoice in the progress we've made

Music is a great motivator

I have a music work out playlist. It plays all the songs, from my pop music phase, along with Broadway musicals. Songs, that I can sing along with while I am working out. That way, when I can't do the exercise on the tape I can dance to the music to keep moving.

Staying on Track

We all know our big goal. To get there, I think it's imperative to have a series of small, reachable goals that we can hit at least once a month. Make them specific but not 'hard'. Ex: work out every day - hard; effective work out 3 times this week - easy. 2# this week-hard. 5# this month-easy

Making it better

I have found that substituting salt with red pepper and herbal seasonings take away the need for that salty taste.

Take Care of All of You

Taking care of yourself means not just your body. Talk to your family doctor if sleep disturbances, depression, or anxiety are concerns that good nutrition and exercise are not easily combating or creating overwhelming stumbling blocks to getting started with healthy lifestyle changes.

Spice It Up!! - Listen to Great Tunes

Since I started in January, my greatest motivation for me while running has been the great tunes on my iPod! I have bought the xtreme cardio cd's and also a few others from nike for planning for your first 10k. I find that this music really pumps me up and keeps me going strong!!

Body Fat

To me it is the loss of body fat that is important. That and inches. If I weigh 175 lbs and I fit into my 32 inch waist pants comfortably, I am a happy camper. I have to remember that muscle weighs more than fat, it is not to me the weight, rather where it is on my body and how my clothes fit.
