Track everything

Much like counting my calories, I track everything I spend. I Have an excel spreadsheet that I sit down at night and put everything into just like I do my nutrition counter. 3 years ago I was almost bankrupt and I make a very good salary. Today I have my credit cards paid off.

Walking

When I am on the phone I walk in and out of the rooms in my home. It makes it go a lot faster when you are visiting with a friend.

Coupons

I am a huge fan of coupon shopping. At the end of my receipt where it tells me how much I saved with coupons, I put that amount away in an envelope at home ... the money saved throughout the year buys Christmas presents!

Setting clothes out the night before

If I set my workout clothes out at night, I know in the morning I won't have to dig through my closet. Everything will be ready to go, and it motivates me to get up and do my workout!

100 calorie packs kept me fat

I fooled myself eating 100 calorie treats. I sabotaged my health thinking I was eating less to feel good about eating something nutritionally wrong. I bypass them all together I haven't missed them one bit. Money is better spent on fruits and organics I used to think were out of my budget range.

Zucchini "Pasta"

Try using a vegetable peeler to peel a zucchini or two. then cook it quickly like it were fettuccine. Not only it makes a great healthy substitute (with way less carbs than pasta), it also tastes great!

Workout Motivation

I put a pair of socks in my tennis shoes every night and sit them on the pedals of my stationary bike or on my treadmill. Seeing that(almost like imaginary feet are inside), sets off a spark in me to get moving in the morning and I seldom miss a workout now!
