Change your time zone

I missed logging in a couple of days because it was after 9:00 pm and I'm on the west coast. I just thought the website was on east coast time before I realized I could change my time zone in the planner section!

Walking/Running Distance?

If you don't know how far you have gone when walking or running, Google Maps allows you to chart your path and while doing it, it tells you how far you have gone. Then you can figure out how many miles per hour you have walked/run - helps when it comes to tracking your exercise.

IF YOU MUST DRINK ALCOHAL!

IF YOU MUST DRINK ALCOHAL (NOT RECOMMENDED DURING WEIGHT LOSS!!!) TRY USING FLAVORED WATER AS YOUR MIXER. THEY COME IN TASTY FLAVORS PLUS 0 CALORIES ;-)

Be honest with yourself

If you bite it, write it!

When tracking your food, be honest with yourself. Don't "tweak" the amount you ate to make it fit into your calorie range -- you will only hurt yourself. If you don't want others to know what you ate, you can always set it so no one can see your food tracker.

Sugar vs. Water

Because of my prior dependence on "sweet drinks" when thirsty, I have come to feel like I want sweets when I am thirsty. I have gotten into a habit of drinking 8 oz of water and waiting 10 minutes before deciding that I need a snack.

Savor the rushing surge of motivation!

Finishing what I start helps me stay on track. I love the rushing surge of motivation I feel just as I approach the end of my workout... it's that feeling of accomplishment and inspiration all rolled into one.
