Food is Fuel and your body deserves the best!

If your parents gave you a nice shiny sports car for your birthday, you would have bought the best fuel, washed and waxed it, gotten the oil changed on time... and if you didn't the car wouldn't last long right? Food is your body's fuel. If you don't fuel with the right things, like a car it quit.

Start Slowly, Build Consistently

Just make one adjustment at a time, do it until it becomes a habit, then add another adjustment....pretty soon all those little adjustments add up to big changes!

walking

I am a nurse and I go into my patient's home. My patient needs to get out, so I take advantage of this time to get cardio for myself.

Hunger after work but before dinner is ready!

My biggest problem was after I got home from work while dinner was cooking I would raid the cabinets because I was hungry right then! I started eating a light yogurt while I was waiting on dinner to cook, satisfies my sweet tooth and the lion in my stomach!

Chores after Cardio... take advantage of those endorphins!!!

After I workout (especially do Cardio) I have this lasting energy that keeps me wanting to stay active for a good amount of time after I leave the gym. I take full advantage of this and plan my cleaning and chores for after gym time. That way I am still burning calories by actively cleaning!!!

The First Thing I Do After Work... is hit the GYM!

When I get home from work the first thing I do is drop my bags and change into my workout clothes and sneakers... I then either go right to the gym and get my cardio or weight training in or I put on my Jillian Michaels DVD. That way I have no change to get sidetracked and procrastinate exercising!

Never Lose Tickets!

When we are going to an event that has tickets for entrance, we clip them to the calendar for the month of the event. Now we never have to remember where we put those tickets!

Running out of time

I have two children who play ball all year round. Since the coaches require them to report at least 30 minutes early to warm up I take advantage of this time by walking/running until the game starts.
