Made a commitment to a running team

I recently joined a local running club. Having payed the annual fee and and stated my commitment to this small group is motivating me to keep going for the runs. Before joining the club, I repeatedly made excuses for not running, since I was not accountable to others.

Wash it...

Take your temptation of choice to the kitchen sink and run it under the water from the faucet for a minute. If it's still there when a minute is up eat it.

Track

Not really a secret to SPers but I have found that when I have gotten out of tracking is when I plateau. Which then I realize is not really a plateau but me overeating. LOL! When I track I lose--bottom line!

Track vitamins!!

Did you know that besides calories, carbs, fats and protein your Nutrition tracker can track almost ANY vitamin and mineral you consume? And when you are done tracking for the day your Nutrition Feedback Report will contain the info about these vitamins and whether you had enough of them or not!!

"Difficult" holidays

Some holidays are emotionally charged for some people, through lack of social support, negative memories, etc. I give myself permission to "re-translate" them! On Mothers' Day, I honour beloved teachers and professors who shaped and nurtured the person I have become. Food doesn't have to = love!

Spice it up!

"Spice it up!" Every movement that I do counts. While I'm brushing my teeth, I do leg lifts. While I watch TV, I do crunches. I try to clean more often now instead of just sitting on the couch. Also, if there are errands to run, I volunteer to do them, just to get out and get moving!
