This is for all you workout dvd people out there. Pop it in, push play, and DO IT! You'll feel so much better for the rest of the day!
If you don't add butter, creams, or ham hocks in, you can make a 15 bean soup mix last a long time. And it's so filling? YOu can season it sweet, salty, spicy, garlicky, any way you want.
I am loving this right now.
Started 6 Wednesday morning and went full steam ahead for 10 hours, bowled twice and shopped , 3 stores and errands all over. Came home and started here and I am winding down since it is 1:50 am and I should go to bed.
This is only good if you keep your word to yourself. I enter my workout pts. before I do it & then I know I MUST do it, if not I have lied to spark & more importantly to myself.
I have a rainbow that I turn on before bed and it streaks across my ceiling. Makes me feel so peaceful as I drift into dreamland. Runs on batteries and has auto shut-off. It's a very beautiful way to go to sleep each night.
When going to the gym, especially if doing the aerobic classes, try to make friends or bring one along. Motivate each other by showing up, encouraging one another, trading tips on workouts, & swapping healthy food recipes.
Blogs needn't win literary prizes. They are a way to get thoughts out of your head and/or keep track of SparkPeople progress. So dive in and share a bit.
I like to start first thing in the morning with a journal entry. This gets my mind focused and motivated to keep on my plan. The quiet before the storm of the day has become so necessary to my success.
Subtract all bills from your balance the day you get paid and what you have left over is for the other things. I have everything possible debited from my bank account and since I already subtracted them, I know the money will be there. Never late, never short if done first.
i use altoids and raw almonds to avoid bad snack attacks. If I have a craving sucking on an altoid and like brushing teeth it stops tastes from being pleasant. Almonds a small hand full keeps my appetite at bay
