PLAN AHEAD AND KEEP THE FRIDGE/PANTRY STOCKED WITH HEALTHY OPTIONS

Always have a plan! Going out to run an errand at lunch? In a meeting during lunch? Plan ahead by keeping water and a piece of fruit, some nuts etc. with you in your car or briefcase. Don't be tempted by the drive thru if you are in a hurry!

Weekly Food Prep

On Sunday afternoons, I plan my food for the week and prepare my food for lunch. I then bag up my veggies and fill my lunch containers with my daily meals. Each day I am able to grab my lunch and quickly head out the door. No room for cheating when it's already made. Great time saver too!!

my favorite quote

Sow a thought, and you reap an act;
Sow an act, and you reap a habit;
Sow a habit, and you reap a character;
Sow a character, and you reap a destiny.

Exercising While Gaming

I have a list of at-home exercises that I know I can do. Whenever I play a video game, either at a save point (if the game has it), or at any "break" in the game, I step away from the console, choose an exercise on the list, and do a full set before I return to playing.

Changing Mind Set

I had to work on my mind and reset it. Before I had the mind set that I needed to eat, I had to eat, I was obsessed with food and planned what I would eat the night before and where I would be stopping to eat. I gained alot of weight this way. emoticon

The "Skinny" Pants

I went to Goodwill, found a pair of jeans 2 sizes smaller than what was my size at the time and hung them in my closet amongst my usual clothes (NOT hidden). It felt amazing to get to zip those puppies up!

When you don't feel like hitting the gym, is when you need it most!

Don't let your mind rob your body of a good workout. Stop making excuses on why I should skip the gym. Headache, Too tired, or I just don't feel like it. None of these excuses will make you look better in that bathing suit. So work extra hard on these days to show your body who is in charge!

A New Day

Even if I fail to get in my exercise for that day, or if I went a little overboard with my food intake for the day - tomorrow is a new day. Each day is a new beginning! Yesterday's bump in the road won't affect today's road to travel! emoticon

Be True to Yourself

Use the calorie tracker even when you know what you're eating isn't always the healthiest. By being true to yourself you will establish healthy habits in the long run. Everyone has a bad day or strays once in awhile, don't take it as a defeat just another mile on the road to healthy eating.
