Protein Shake

I always have a protein shake within an hour after I work out. I try to have one with a good mix of carbs and protein. It gives me a good boost of energy and my muscles get what they need to keep me going until my next meal.

Keep Moving Forward

I have messed up so many times on my weight loss journey. Sometimes for weeks. I learned that no matter what keep moving forward! If only just to log on to read a few articles is all you can do for the day it is better than nothing. emoticon

The Scale is Your Friend, but...

While I was losing weight it really helped to weigh only once a week, and even then not paying too much attention to that one event. What I focused on was the lowest weight of each month. That numbered captured my continuing progress much more accurately.

being believed in

It's one of the most known but little appreciated parts of raising a healthy, happy child. Most successful adults commonly credit their success with people in their lives who they felt "really cared for and believed in them".

Diet is a 4 letter word

This isn't a diet, it is a lifestyle change. Nothing is off limits, but you have to use moderation.

Cash only

I found that by using cash only I'm a lot more careful with my spending and have saved quite a bit each week.

Brag about your accomplishments

Tell the world how awesome you are, even if it's for something small. Post it in your status, shout it out in your blog. Give yourself the praise you deserve! Toot your own horn! This will help you focus on the positives rather than focusing on the work remaining to be done.

Want it...Do it...Own it

I believe you have to want it...then go after it and do what you are capable of doing but not over push yourself...then if you do good or bad...own it...you make the success and if one thing gets you down don't stop...just keep going.

LOG YOUR FOOD

I know a lot of people do not want to count calories. I used to be one of them. Using the Nutrition Tracker is essential to learning what you eat and where you need to change.
