Have Fun!

By watching the Biggest Loser or seeing others struggle and hate what they are doing is no way to live. May take some trial and error but have fun and appreciate that you are doing.

Allow yourself some latitude

Ease into exercise. It wasn't until week three that I started cardio. I will move into strength training when I feel ready. It is too overwhelming to take on strength training right now.
Also, I get up and the first thing I do is exercise so it is behind me for the day.

Clean Eating

Eating clean has changed my life! I eat as close to the source as possible and very little processed food. Clean Eating Magazine and Tosca Reno's Eat Clean Cookbook are staples in my kitchen!

Forgive Yourself

You will slip up and have bad days/weeks/etc. Just acknowledge that you messed up, try to learn from it so it doesn't happen again, and start fresh RIGHT THEN. Guilt, regret, and self-hatred do not help. Love yourself enough to move forward and focus on the now.

Any workout will do.

I have found that any amount of workout is worth doing. When I can't do a full workout, half will do, so much better than nothing

Baby Steps

Do not do it all at once. Build and take baby steps. Start with sleeping more, drinking 8 cups a day and making sure you eat breakfast lunch and dinner. Build upon it and add new things every week or two as you feel comfortable.

Increase your Veggies

Too busy to cook a real meal but want to get your veggies in? Take your meal-in-a-box (let's say it's a box of tuna helper) and add a bag of frozen veggies to it, making it more nutritious (and it feels like you can eat more).

Set Workout Goals

If you're like me, exercising without a point is boring. Set goals like setting a personal record for your 5k, holding your yoga pose for longer than you've ever before, or increasing your weights every 3 weeks. Better yet? Sign up for a race or competition for extra motivation!

HOCKEY - Learn to Play as an Adult and Burn TONS of Calories!!!!

Have fun and burn amazing amounts of calories by learning a new sport - Hockey! I usually burn between 700-1100 calories during a 60-75 minute session. I don't even realize it because I'm having so much fun! Check your local ice rink for an adult learn-to-play session.
