Sugar free gum is your friend

When I'm cooking I chew on a piece of sugar free gum. This keeps me from "tasting" as I'm cooking, as I'm usually pretty hungry. I would estimate two 5 calorie pieces of gum (dinner and lunch) save me 50-100 calories a day!

Fasting

Some times I fast for one meal once a week. It helps me know that I CAN control my snack habit. emoticon Also love trying new veggies too.

Set my alarm across the room

To help me get up and go to the gym in the morning, I set my alarm and place it all the way across the room. I also leave my exercise clothes beside my bed. When my alarm goes off I have to get up to shut it off so since I am already up I just get ready and go right to the gym :)

Just around the corner

If I find myself in a lack luster mood. Not really wanting to work out. I tell myself, let's just run down to the corner. This is only about 300 yards for me. I get to that corner and then repeat the statement. Just to that next light pole! Over and over until I find myself on mile 10!!

food shopping

I make sure I'm full before shopping. It stops me from making choices out of hunger.

Pick yourself back up

You have to keep picking yourself back up more times then you fall. Then you will succeed.

Plan to Succeed

Every Sunday morning, I spend about 30 minutes looking ahead at my week and then make my menu and shopping list. If I know I have sports practices at 5:30, I know it's a crockpot night. If we have a game out of town, I'll make "sack dinners" to eat on the way thus avoiding Mcdonalds.
