T.G.I.F.

I see my trainer or schedule a cardio class for Fridays. Before I started doing this, I always skipped fridays at the gym. By scheduling something I never miss a Friday. Now Friday's are my favorite work out day because the gym is not as busy! emoticon

Drink Tea

Whenever I feel like snacking, I make myself a cup of herbal tea and drink it. If I'm still hungry after drinking the tea, I know I'm legitimately hungry and will have a snack. But more often than not, having something hot and thinking about what I'm doing will stop me from snacking.

Subscribing to a Team Thread

One of the easiest ways to stay informed on your Spark Teams is to be notified when a new thread is started and subscribe to any current thread, then you will receive an e-mail when anyone responds to that thread giving you the opportunity to respond to them and keep involved in the team.

Weighing...

I used to avoid it like the plague, afraid of what I might see. Then I started doing it every day. Some days I'm up, some days I'm down, but it always helps me understand what worked and what didn't from the day before. Some disagree with this technique, but I've found it helps me stay on track.

Prep Your Bills

I pay my bills the old fashioned way, by mail. To save time, I "prep" them as soon as they are brought into the house from the mailbox.

Use what you'd never thought you'd need after high school.

Remember sitting in Math class and wondering why you needed to know Math after high school? Especially calculus and advanced algebra? I'll tell you why you need it...

Make a budget.

Mind Games

When I am out eating with buddies and the temptations become overwhelming, I start counting how many "things" people are eating. Like corn fritters or nacho bites. It is not to be disrepectful to them, but to help me get through that moment.

Plan your workouts

Use the Workouts function of the Fitness tracker to develop various workouts. Add the one I want to do at the beginning of the day and spread out the exercises into your day. I like to sneak in a set everytime I go to the ladies' room.

H20

I bought a 32 oz bottle of water at a convenience store a while back. I take it EVERYWHERE I go throughout the day. I strive to refill it 4 times a day. This means I take in a gallon of H2O daily. I feel SOOO much better. Oh yeah, and I am losing weight!
