Eat 2 Breakfasts

I eat Breakfast in two stages. I eat within half an hour of waking up - often fruit and whole wheat toast and then around 10 a.m. I eat some protein often with fruit again This helps me because if I eat all my breakfast when I get up around 6, it's tough to make it to lunch.

Magazines

I have recently subscribed to Women's Fitness Magazine and Shape Magazine. I'm eager to read them and when I do they really keep me in the right (healthy living) frame of mind. For me they have been very motivating.

Love Ice Cream

My weakness is ice cream. Putting half a cup in a bowl - even a small one looked ridiculous. I keep a supply of Dixie kitchen cups which are a half cup but makes me feel like I'm getting more.

Drinking Water

I have a 40 ounce water bottle that I carry with me all the time. I fill it up in the morning, and when its empty I fill it up again - once I've drank two of them, I've gotten more than my 8 glasses!! I put a straw in it to sip on water all day.... before I know it it is gone!

LOW CAL SNACK TIME

When I have nearly exhausted all of my caloric intake for the day & still need a good sweet snack, I have Jello in the little individual snack cups. Sometimes, I'll also have a teaspoon of non-fat cool whip on top.
