Tracking Water

I have two 1 oz. medicine cups with lids that I keep 8 beads from a broken necklace in. When I pour myself another glass of water I move a bead from the cup labeled "drink me". I leave these on my water cooler, and when I leave the house I toss them in my purse.

Modify to Keep it interesting

doing repetive things can get boring, and your body can get so used to it it doesn't help as much - modify by doing 10 sets straight, then adding something different like head turn s or leg lft sfor the next 10, alternate- or do your whole circuit in reverse, or change your route....

Papertowels

Put a papertowel in your container/zip lock with fresh cut veggies to absorb moisture. For best results place a papertowel between each layer of veggies and replace throughout the week as needed. Also works well with fresh cut fruit such as watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew etc.

Traveling Tips

When traveling for work or vacation, always bring running shoes and a good resistance band. They both are light and compact enough to fit in a suitcase, and will give you a convenient, portable gym away from home.

Sit on a ball

I spend about 30 minutes in the morning on sparkpeople reading articles and blogs while I drink my coffee. It really helps me stay motivated. I started sitting on my exercise ball while I'm reading and you'd be surprised at how it engages your muscles even though you aren't "exercising"

Use washcloths rather than paper napkins.

I purchased inexpensive white washcloths and set them at each person's place. If not soiled, they can be used for another meal. To keep separated, clip with a labeled clothes pin. They are more absorbent, bigger, and add little to the laundry load. I haven't purchased paper napkins in ages.

Change your WORK environment

Talk with your boss about changing your work environment to help you reach your fitness goals. It can be small things, but make big differences. On the phone a lot? A headset. At your desk? An exercise ball. Show how your productivity will be better and most work places are happy to accommodate.

Fake it til you make it

If you don't feel like working out fake like you do until you get down there and actually feel like it. If you don't feel like being happy smile and fake it until your are laughing and actually happy.
