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.

My weight Loss

I have cut down on my portions at each meal and exercise more and drinking lots of water. At snack time I eat more fruits and vegetables.

Salad Dressing

I dress my salad by using a 1 gal. Zip Lock bag. I put in the greens and add 1-2 tsp. olive oil 1st. I shake the bag for 15 sec. or so and coat all the leaves with the oil. Then I can add the kind of vinegar I like. Crumbled cheese, nuts, etc. sparingly on top! Uses so little & tastes so good!

THE SAUCER METHOD OF EATING

I have started using a saucer to use as my portion control apparatus. When I fill the saucer up that is it! I eat no more for at least 2 hours! ! I try to eat 6 small meals a day. This has helped with the shrinking of my stomach!

When the kids are snacking, chew gum!

I noticed when journalling my food, that when I am making my daughter's after school snack I was eating extra calories. Now I have fruit before I pick her up or chew sugarless gum as I make her snack! It REALLY keeps me out of her food!

Keep It Fresh

To keep from getting bored, and to keep my body guessing, I change my workout routine every month. This way I'm always working different muscles, and I get to look forward to a new routine every month.

Become Purposefully Inefficient!

One great way to get more active each day is being purposefully inefficient. Carry your groceries in one bag at a time. Seek out the rest room farthest away from where you are, go to the mail box yourself instead of asking your kids....You'll be surprised how your activity level will increase!
