Eating on the run

I always keep something to eat in my car in case I'm running errands and need a little something to tide me over. Usually raisins or a high energy bar. It's quick and better for me than going to a fast food joint.

Eat and drink water BEFORE you are hungry and first thing in the morning!

Don't wait until you are famished to eat. When you get up in the morning start with 1 glass of water and a banana or some small food item. Thinking this way promotes small meals through out the day which is proven to help with weight loss.

Exercise Every Day, No Matter What

I was getting lazy and not going out because of the weather. As soon as I started going out every day, going to the gym, whatever, the weight started dropping and I am getting fit. I am so happy. Would I rather sit? NO! I used the Spark Book to help me get motivated.

Be Proactive instead of Reactive

Instead of reacting to what happened, take charge beforehand. People make mistakes or slip up; it's not the end of the world if you eat cupcakes or don't exercise for a day. Simply blaming fate or giving up is cheating yourself. Plan, do, be, and keep going.

Losing motivation to complete exercise routine

Today I struggled getting through 30 minutes of exercise. But I told myself how good I will feel after thirty minutes is over. I figured I am awake fifteen hours a day (900 minutes) and I am exercising is 3% of the 900 minutes. This is a small amount of time.

Turn your grocery savings into REAL savings

Shop sales, use coupons, loyalty card discounts, etc., when grocery shopping. The total you save is usually printed at the bottom of the receipt. Transfer that amount from your checking into your savings account; you'll be surprised how it really adds up over a period of time!!

Keep a food diary

I have found that I am most successful at maintaining my weight if I track my food. At first it can seem tedious but eventually you get in the habit and if you are brutally honest with yourself it really helps keep you from overeating.
