Plan a menu

Every weekend I sit down for an hour and plan my menu including snacks for the next week. I type it up and post it on my frig. I will plan down to how many calories I will have each day. I make sure that I have about 4 weeks of menus and rotate them. I also try a new recipe each week.

Out of Wack

I follow My S P exercise plan but on my off days I do a little bit extra. You don't want to complete rest for your off days. I just do enough to where my muscles can heal but my body is still burning off the fat. emoticon

Freeze portions

I buy brown rice in 20 kilo sacks and then I cook 1 l dry measure at the time and weigh in 150 g portions that I freeze. Three minutes in the micro makes it ready to eat.

Sparkteams

Finding and JOINING sparkteams that get you SPARKED is one way I stay interested longer and learn much more than I would other ways. Like my interest in organic gardening or NCIS! Its a whole group of us involved in the same thing,bonding together over a common interest using it to stay on track!!

My motivation activation

My family motivates me. I want to be here long enough to enjoy them and any grand babies I may get down the line. They motivate me to stay healthy to someday see that.

Eat to lose

Eat the right foods. When we eat a lot of carbs our bodies can't use all that sugar and it stores it as fat. Eat 3 meals a day with 45 to 60 carbs and a sufficient amount of protein. Increase activity and lose. I did this and lost 45 pounds in 4 months. Keep busy. add 2 snacks each day plus meals.

Do it for yourself

If you are going to lose weight do it only for yourself. If you want to do it for someone else you're not going to be successful. If someone tells you that you can't or won't take it as a dare & prove them wrong...better yet...prove yourself wrong!
