Time Management

Depending on what room you are usually in that last half hour before you leave either set your kitchen timer or an alarm clock so it goes off as a warning that you need to wrap things up and get going.

Off day on days

So you have (slightly) overeaten. You don't gain four pounds all of the sudden. So what happened happened and go for it again and don't be too surprised if you have lost a couple of pounds because of your 'terrible misstep'. Go for it! Goodluck and together we will make it!

I would fix batches of pasta or stew with vegies and portion into 1 cup bowls...I would freeze until ready to pack my lunch before going to work.

No one will do it for you

Tired of ostracism? Rejection? Loneliness? You are the only one who can make a change. Do it. Follow spark people's plan. Exercise, and count your calories. It will work, if you put in the effort. Or, you can remain lazy and feel sorry for yourself.

Stay Flexible in your Plans

Although I like to have my day organized and planned and hope it runs smoothly, as a mom to 3 young kids it really helps to stay flexible in my schedule. Instead of sulking over the missed opportunities, make new ones.

Get Enough Quality Sleep

Poor sleep and a lack of sleep really affects all aspects of my life. When I get enough sleep, then I get more done, I'm more active, I eat better, I make better decisions, I cook better meals, I enjoy my life more. If I'm tired, then it's all quite the opposite!

Coping with workplace temptations

The staffroom at work is always full of cakes, cookies and chocolates. I used to be the person who put everything away at the end of the day to prevent flies and mice having a midnight feast. Now I leave everything uncovered. Next day my appetite for sweet things has completely gone.

The Meal Planner and Shopping List

The meal planner and shopping list do it for me. I go over my meals for the week changing anything I'm allergic to or am not particularly fond. Print my shopping list and go shopping! It helps when cooking to know all the ingredients are there and nothings missing. It's makes life so much easire.
