Ditch the 100-Calorie Packs

They look benign enough, but all they do is spike your sugar and have you craving more. While it's nice to enjoy your favorite snacks in moderation, the volume isn't really a sustainable snack. The best 100 calorie snacks are a nice piece of fresh fruit, a yogurt, or a few almonds or pistachios!

Personal Trainer

I know, I know!! Personal trainers are expensive. I am fortunate enough to be able to fit the cost into my budget even though it is difficult. But I honestly believe that if it were not for Rachel, I would probably not have learned to love exercise. I look forward to our time together.

Eat In Smaller Plate

I found by eating in a salad plate rather than a regular plate I am eating smaller portions and I drink a glass of water which makes me full therefore causing me not to want to eat more than I should. When I am done eating I don't feel stuffed and miserable, rather I am satisfied and very happy.

storage

I put one of those shoe storage things that hang on the back of the door in my pantry. I measure out snacks and put them in bags and write how many cals . I then put the bags in the organizer . When I go looking for a snack it's easier and I know exactly how many cals I am eating. emoticon

Beating Yourself Up Is Not Cardio

You're only human. Sometimes, you'll miss workouts and eat too much. It happens. When it does, don't waste even more energy beating yourself up over it. Accept it as a break from your program and then get right back to making healthier choices.

Small Actions over time = big results

Just like with weight loss, you need not tackle all your organizational issues at once. Try 15 minutes a day, and you'll find yourself with 105 minutes (1 hr, 45 mins!) per week of organizational work.

making life less hectic

I keep a binder with my routines. My routines include such things as: bedtime routine -- laying out clothes for the next day, setting up the table for breakfast the next day, setting up meds for the next morning. That way I can check to see if I've forgotten anything at the end of a hectic day.
