Movies

I love to put on a movie or a recorded show and walk on the treadmill. The time just flys!

"Say it out loud" using the blog!

I use the blog to write down what I want to accomplish. By 'saying it out loud' in the blog, I make a commitment to myself that I have to keep.

Cook Ahead

There are a lot of days I don't feel well and will grab what is easiest. It helps to schedule a cooking day every couple of weeks and cook up some meat and several dishes and freeze in portion sizes so I have something healthy to grab quickly. And to keep pulling out dishes to thaw as needed.

Out of Sight, Out of mind... and out of my mouth!!

I have to be sure to PUT every thing UP!! If there is anything out on the cabinets, I can't resist... I walk by and have it in my mouth before I know it. If I close up all snacks, cereals, etc and put them in the cabinet, I won't open it up and eat it. But if it is out, I'll eat it.

Schedule fitness appointment for yourself each day

I work off of an appointment schedule each day. My last appointment of the day is at the gym. I would not miss an appointment with one of my patients so why would I allow myself to miss my own appointment?

First one up!

I am the first one up in the morning. I get up an hour early, eat a little snack with some water and then work out.... that is my time and the family respects that. I have been doing it for over 16 years...plus, you have it out of the way for the rest of the day!

Pack your food for the day.

You can control what you eat and how much you eat by bringing your food from home. By taking a few minutes each night and packing breakfast,lunch and snacks you set up a good eating day.

Reusable Shopping Bags

As soon as I unpack my groceries from my reusable grocery bags, I put the empty bags near the door that is on my way outside. This way I can grab them on the next trip out to the car and have them ready for my next shopping trip. emoticon

Do I Really Need this Item

Retailers are experts at marketing their goods. They want the buyer to buy immediately and without thought. Everyone needs to wait until the next day for larger out of pocket expenses. Sometimes after a little more reflection the must have it results in the I do not really need it!
