Each day

Each day is the beginning of a new life for me. Each day anything is possible if I stay positive and focused.

Engaging my pocketbook and friends in the goal

I need a goal to work for. I pick a race that I'm going to run and I PAY FOR IT as soon as possible. If I'm paying $50-$75 to run a half marathon, it is a constant motivator. I HATE to lose/waste money! I also tell my friends. If I tell them, I wont to go back and say I didn't make it.

Sweet tooth

I've always had a sweet tooth and I've learned the hard way to only buy a single serving if I need a treat and not a whole bag. It's much harder to resist treats that are at home.

Sparkbuddies are the best

You know how your family and friends get tired of you talking about eating healthy and exercising and taking care of you? Your Sparkfriends don't! They are always willing to listen to you, offer advice, encourage, take YOUR advice, and cheer each baby step forward!

Cleaning Is an Exercise Adventure

The best way to clean to mix it up. Use the step stool and instead of a bucket of water, go up and down the steps to rinse a dirty cloth. Don' t be afraid to get on your hands and knees and stretch to the back of the cupboard. Reach for the stars and get any stray cobwebs too! Enjoy the result.

Extra Steps Make Big Differences

I always read about it but never did it - now I can't imagine not doing it! Taking the stairs and parking farther away from store entrances help me get in my 10,000 steps a day!

don't tell your buddy if you can't make it

Make a plan to meet somebody at the gym at a certain time. Ask them not to tell you if they can't make it for some reason. This way, you HAVE to show up, because they could be counting on you, and there is less chance for you to back out if they do!

Try it more than once

When you try a new class like cycle/spin or pilates, you should try it more than once. 3 to 4 times preferably. The first time you will be too new and trying to learn everything to enjoy it. And will likely have soreness after. By the 3rd time, you can tell if you are going to enjoy it or not.

A veggie at every meal?

Thats right I said it...lol I have found that if I eat some type of very fiberous veggie like celery or something along with my fruit and other meal foods.. it helps me keep from snacking so much.. Strange but worth a try...
