Start Small To Make Exercise "Routine"

If you want to make sure Fitness is a Habit, start small with something you know you can do. Start walking or walking stairs at your office (I did this) for 10 minutes 3x a week. Make the habit first--even say it out loud to others--once you have the routine then add minutes or intensity!

Stop humanizing my food!

Food does not have vocal cords. It cannot 'call' me from the cupboard/freezer/fridge. Why should I 'love' certain foods - they don't love me back. Once I put food in its proper context, I can enjoy it, but not give it unnecessary power over me.

Track everything

Much like counting my calories, I track everything I spend. I Have an excel spreadsheet that I sit down at night and put everything into just like I do my nutrition counter. 3 years ago I was almost bankrupt and I make a very good salary. Today I have my credit cards paid off.

Walking

When I am on the phone I walk in and out of the rooms in my home. It makes it go a lot faster when you are visiting with a friend.

Coupons

I am a huge fan of coupon shopping. At the end of my receipt where it tells me how much I saved with coupons, I put that amount away in an envelope at home ... the money saved throughout the year buys Christmas presents!

Setting clothes out the night before

If I set my workout clothes out at night, I know in the morning I won't have to dig through my closet. Everything will be ready to go, and it motivates me to get up and do my workout!

100 calorie packs kept me fat

I fooled myself eating 100 calorie treats. I sabotaged my health thinking I was eating less to feel good about eating something nutritionally wrong. I bypass them all together I haven't missed them one bit. Money is better spent on fruits and organics I used to think were out of my budget range.

Zucchini "Pasta"

Try using a vegetable peeler to peel a zucchini or two. then cook it quickly like it were fettuccine. Not only it makes a great healthy substitute (with way less carbs than pasta), it also tastes great!
