Logging my food

I try, try, try to log my food consistently in the SparkTracker. Whenever I slack off...I don't do as well.

Eat in advance of hunger

Even if I'm not hungry, if more than two and a half to three hours have passed, I have a healthy snack that is pre-planned and prepared. If I wait until I feel hungry, there's no telling what I might eat.

Fake it until you make it.

When I first began a fitness program, I didn't always know all the moves or the steps. Really I didn't even always feel like going. But I just kept at it like I knew what was going on. Like I wanted to go anyway. Eventually I did want to go and I did know the moves. I just had to get started.

Destressing my life

Stress is a real big issue for me in my daily life.
I have learned to recongnize the warning signs, such as excessive energy with no focus, irritability, yelling, rapid beathing, etc.

I have been cooking whole meals in my crockpot for 31 years:same crockpot too! It only costs a few cents a day to run one, instead of using an oven or microwave! Banked the saved $ and renovated my home's whole interior!

The Food Obsession

Keep youself busy, don't spend all your time thinking about food. I plan out my next day's menu the night before and prepare what I can. I simply know what I am going to eat and therefore do not have to worry about it. Plan ahead. Do something that's not all about you.

Secret Ingredient

I put fresh pico de gallo on everything. I purchase it from my food store deli and it really ups the spicy factor on my sometimes boring healthy foods.

Move it while watching TV

When I am watching TV I walk back and forth to get steps in. On comercials I go on a fast paced walk around the house. This burns calories better than just sitting.
