Stop Being a Picker!

Learn to drink your water and eat the greens! Don't say things like you don't like them and avoid them all. There are sooo many types of vegetables in this world, dont tell me you've tried them all and hate them all? Learn to accept them! Then be rewarded with health!

Short Term Goals

Setting short term goals lets you celebrate your journey each step of the way. Each time you reach a goal....set another one. This will motivated you to push yourself a little more each time to ultimately reach your final goal successfully.

Make it apart of your everyday life.

I am learning to make exercise a normal part of my day, the same as taking a bath, brushing my teeth, and eating dinner. It shouldn't be something that you pencil into your day, just so you can have the option to erase it later.

Eat Breakfast!

Don't skip breakfast! But make it healthy--oatmeal, fresh fruit, non fat milk, egg white omelet, whole grain toast. It starts you out with the fuel you need to get through the morning and to be more active.

I know that once you take the first step to getting back on track the other steps are easier to take no matter how many steps you must take......... emoticon

Inhale Deeply

I always enjoy opening my chocolate cabinet and inhaling deeply even if I don't plan on eating it. Usually just a deep breath of chocolate "fumes" is enough to curb my desire. Now I apply that to all my foods--inhale deeply before eating. Half the delight of eating is the smell.

Plan Your Day

I heard a quote the other day.... "Failing to prepare is preparing to fail."

I thought this was very relevant to almost every aspect of our lives. When we lack motivation to complete tasks (regardless of how small it is), always seems to make the goal more attainable! Good luck.....

Stay Focused

I make sure to have diet or fitness reading materials at my fingertips to read during downtime or breaks. This helps with motivation, positive attitude, and problem resolution. Frequently these concepts translate to so many other areas of my life.

Goal = Healthy Lifestyle NOT Weight loss

Bob Harper from the Biggest Loser said, "There is no finish line . . ." This really hit the nail on the head for me. That is when I realized that weight loss wasn't my goal, a healthy lifestyle was my goal. Point is, when you reach your "goal" weight you can't just stop there.
