Saver Bites

When you go out to dinner, and you are having a hard time not eating all the appetizers, take a favorite protein bar and cut it up into small bites and place in a baggy. These can be used for any emergency hunger attacks. emoticon

Plan Ahead

If I know we are going out to dinner with family, I make it a point to narrow down which restaurants we might go to and check out their menu/nutrition info on the website before hand. I also bring healthy snacks and water along when we are out and about on weekends

placing feet on path

I am taking one day at a time. Enter everything I eat and drink...right now I am on day four...four successful days on this path. A few slips, but those I see as opportunities to learn...truly, the slips were around stuff I didn't know!

Snack

I make sure to pack at least two healthy snacks for my day at work. I leave them in my truck so that I have to take a break to walk out and get my snack. It keeps me moving and gets my mind off of the vending machine right next to my office.

Do YOUR thing!

Often people ask me what kind of workouts I do! After I give them the run down of my routine, they look as me as though they can't do it. My advice to them is always, do what works for YOU! You might not be able to do my workouts, but there is something for EVERYONE! Do YOUR thing!

CRACKING DOWN ON CRAVINGS

If you get a craving for salty foods and the crunch aspect, have some carrots and celery on hand and a light salad dressing. Dip the veggies in the dressing.
Hunkering for sweets? Try an apple with cheese, or yogurt with fresh fruit of your choice. Works wonders!

ALWAYS HAVE A PLAN B

If I can't make my scheduled workout due to life, I go to plan B and do what I can... something is always better than nothing and you can work out literally everywhere... at night at grad school, I ran stairs during my 10 min break-LOL! Stuck in airport? Run laps... who cares what people think?

NEVER SAY NEVER!

In gettin my exercises done, I wake up like any other, wanting to sleep some, I get up with pep ups like hopping and jumping to the loo. I run to the kitchen, I walk to get my fruits at the groceries, or walk to get my magazine, I generally create stuff to spurr me on!
