Little Solutions

It's all about a bunch of little things--not one big thing. There is not one big solution, but several little ones. Their summation is the "one thing" that can help you find your way.

GET UP!

If you have a sedentary lifestyle, keep moving whenever possible. Fold laundry while watching TV, walk instead of sit while talking on the phone. Even standing burns more calories than sitting!

Get your sleep!

Get enough sleep each night in order to have energy in the morning to exercise or otherwise stick to your plans. Being overtired makes you vulnerable to the excuses we all make. Being well rested makes you ready to face the day.

Baskets display pretty sandals

I have some pretty jeweled sandals and I display them in a basket, clustered in a decorative way to show off the jewels. I also decided to get another basket in which I arrange my tennis shoes, back side up and I tuck the basket under the clothes. They make my closet very festive and reduce clutter.

Love ice cream but not the spare tire?

I looooooovvvvvee ice cream! However, it is usually full of calories; even the frozen yogurt. Put your favorite kind of yogurt in the freezer, shake it randomly to freeze evenly, but go back before it is completely frozen. Then ENJOY!!

Don't think about it, just do it!

Whenever I find myself thinking about my exercise (ie: running) and I'm tired, I end up talking myself out of it. If I stop my mind chatter and go thru the motions, I get myself out there and am glad for it. The less I think about it, the more I do it.

keep money in wallet at work

When at work I have to wear a uniform. So I keep all my money in my wallet in my backback which is in my locker. I'm not tempted to spend on the vending machines. That also saves on calories.
