Many exercises can be done in your everyday clothes! Walking (just wear walking shoes), crunches, jog in place, many light calesthenics, dumbell exercises, and many Sparkpeople exercise videos can all be done in street clothes! Saves the time spent driving to a gym and changing clothes.
This water is delicious. Regular water with a hint of blackberry flavor at the end. Cuts down on my need to drink something sweet. I'm going to see if I can't make my own to cut down on the plastic bottles I'd have to buy otherwise.
When hungry and in need of a snack, I go to the package, bag or box, measure out a single serving and put the rest away. I always used to think that would not satisfy me, but I have been pleasantly surprised to find it does. It also helps to curb my "grazing" or mindless nighttime eating.
Since adding Weight Watchers to Spark People, I realize now just how much I was snacking throughout the ENTIRE day. Writing down every single thing that I eat has helped tremendously.
Chips! Measure out a serving in a bowl or plastic baggie. I never eat straight out of the bag anymore and Do Not go back for refills. :)
If I find that I ran out of calories for dessert, I eat a single Hershey's kiss. It's only 22 calories and if you really savor it slowly it will satisfy your chocolate craving and keep you from feeling like eating healthy is such a hardship.
I have decided that I fail at diets, so I am going to think of this as a Health Plan that will increase my energy, my life span, how I feel overall and the it just happens to have a side effect of weight loss. That way I am not measuring my success by the scale, but by my health improvement.
Getting healthy is almost as much mental as it is physical, at least for me. Staying focused upon the task at hand with visual reminders is a real help for me in staying the course.
