Think Long Term

As much as we'd like it to go quickly, weight loss is a long term process. Never give up.

Changing Up Cardio

I cut out different cardio workouts from magazines and tape them on index cards. The cards are connected by rings. I bring them with me and pick a different workout each day.

Be a label reader!

Mostly all food labels are mis-leading. "Fat free" usually means "I'm loaded with sugar and salt", so read what's in it. Sure it may be fat free but having 40 grams of sugar per sugar kinda defeats the purpose!

Magic Erasers for Tubs

Using a magic eraser to clean the tub takes a lot of the elbow work out of removing the residue. Magic Erasers are perfect for almost all household scrubbing, but I have found them particularly helpful when trying to get water spot, residue or rust stains removed from the tub/shower.

Breakfast should not be missed

I love my oats cooked with skim milk and sprinkled with cinnamon and then grating an apple in it.

Track everything you eat

Tracking the food had help me to realize how much I was eating. Now I know how much and how good is what I'm eating emoticon

Avoiding or cutting down wine/alcohol consumption

I find that when I avoid wine, I lose weight. It's not rocket science. After a couple glasses of wine, I eat unhealthy foods or too much food. I usually have wine on weekends, but then I find that all my week long efforts and weight loss are squashed by my weekend antics. Not worth it.

GRADUAL increases

For newbies: I set very small goals for myself in my exercising. I give myself small increments of time to meet: 15 minutes on this machine today and then add 5 or 10 minutes after that. Or, run to the mail box up the street and then the next mailbox tomorrow. emoticon
