Planning Ahead

I try and plan ahead what I'll eat on any given day --- especially when I'll be away from home making sure I have healthy food (such as a yogurt, low sugar granola bar, nuts, assorted fruits & veggies) so I won't get that hungry feeling that sabotages the best dieting plans.

Whenever you buy an item that comes with a battery charger (electronics, toys, cell phones, etc.), put a label on the charger identifying its' purpose.

Exercising on a budget

With finances being tight, I walk at least 30 minutes a day, and do a 10 min bootcamp video. I belong to 4 bootcamp teams and do a different bootcamp each month. When can't go outside to walk, utilitize free cardio videos on exercise.tv and realage.com. emoticon

One Day at a Time

Borrowed from the 12 Step Programs...plan meals & exercise for today. Yesterday is gone - can't change it; tomorrow isn't here yet, don't worry about it. Work through today...one meal, one activity at a time.

Patience

I'm horrible at buying things just because they're on sale, or seem like a good deal. If you're not positive you want something, go home and sleep on it. If you're still thinking about it the next day, then go back and get it.

NEVER give up

Fall 7 times get up 8? How about fall 999 times get up 1,000! Quitting is not an option. Remind yourself constantly that this is about your HEALTH & not just about losing weight. It is NOT a diet, it is a LIFESTYLE, an example we are setting for those around us. Especially those who look up to us.

Make it a Reward

We all know that we feel better after a good workout.

When you're having a rough day and only want to crash in front of the TV, tell youself if you make it through the work shift, you'll reward youself with a great workout.

Mind over matter. It's not a chore; it's an energy high.

ADD PLYOMETRIC EXERCISES TO YOUR ROUTINE

Switch up your work-out routine and add some new moves! All of our movement is front to back...try skipping sideways on the treadmill. Jump up as high as you can landing softly multiple times. Skip instead of walk. Your body will wake up and say HUH? emoticon emoticon
