Fitting in extra steps

When I go grocery shopping, I park the cart in an out-of-the-way spot and bring armloads of groceries back to it. I get more steps in and it's great for when the store's crowded; I can duck and weave through the people with carts and get my shopping done faster than people who push their cart everywhere they go.

MAKE A PLAN AND STICK WITH IT, Don't focus on the Big Picture!

It is hard to stay motivated when life itself can throw negative trials your way. Such as the scale tipping upwards, job related issues, family problems, and such...... when you are trying your best to loose weight and stay focused on a healthy life-style it doesn't take much to throw you off kilter! Don't allow this steal from what you have already accomplished!

Water Helps Drown Cravings

I have found that when I am really trying to fight a craving, it helps to drink a glass (or 2) of water and wait 10 minutes. It has worked so successfully for me, that I now tell myself I can have whatever it is I want if I simply drink my water and wait 10 minutes first. More than half the time, the craving passes and I'm better hydrated. I was initially inspired by reading an article that we sometimes crave sugar (or think we're hungry...) when we're actually thirsty. Crazy, huh?

No More Elevators!

No matter where I am, or where I'm going, I only take the stairs. At the airport with luggage? Stairs! At work on the 6th floor? Stairs! At the mall, movie theater, stadium? STAIRS! It was hard at first but now I don't even think about it.

How to beat eating in the evening

I do well all day long with keeping my meals on track, but evenings are a challenge. I've learned if I make some hot tea (herbal or different flavors) and sip it while keeping my hands busy with some type of craft (I love to knit), it really helps me not snack all evening and "blow " my efforts for the day.
