Weigh and Measure!

I think one of the more important things that really helped me that doesn't seem to get a lot of attention in articles here is a simple food scale. So many foods are hard to measure without one! Grapes, watermelon, meats, and a lot of other fresh foods, which is the kind of food you WANT, all become very easy to track. It's a great tool :) On a side note, measure all other foods, as well. Like use measuring cups and measuring spoons when required. Make it a habit.

Create a Wish Box

Decorate a box and put all of your wishes and prayers in it. Be as specific as possible. For example instead of "I want to lose weight." Change it to: "I am at my desired weight goal." Put all of your health goals and wishes in it. "I love the taste of fruits and veggies." You can be as creative as you want to, and use affirmation statements as if they have already came true. Review your wish box daily and have faith, you may be surprised how you're inspired to make your wishes a reality.

Talk a walk each time you take a restroom break

At work I need to get up and take a restroom break a few times a day. Once I get up out of my chair I use it as a reminder to do some walking around at a quick pace before sitting back down. a quick 10 minute walk gets in some of my 10,000 daily steps and gets me energized for what I need to do next.

Egg and Spinach Scramble for Breakfast

Starting my day with this simple recipe, sets the tone for better choices throughout the day. The basic recipe starts with 1/3 - 1/2 C. eggwhites and 1 C baby spinach. Add fresh or leftover veggies, sauteed in spray oil. I like zucchini/summer squash, mushrooms, onion, sweet red/yellow peppers. Add some type of lean meat (like turkey breast) - 1 to 2 oz. chopped. Other great additions, pico de gallo, black olives, or parmesan cheese. Any combination makes a great start for your day.

Follow food plan and avoid cravings

I'm in maintenance but still cravings and overeating bothered me. I learned that making a food plan and sticking to it+ eating everything slowly, mindfully and sitting down prevents cravings.

Walk More

I walk extra if I want to or I clean my house. My Dr., just told me this week I'll never get rid of my Diabetes. I don't take meds any longer, I just control it with diet.

Yoga

Yoga is one of the few forms of exercise I can do without injury or causing a flare (fibromyalgia)... not only that, but it's a great stress reducer (helps keep anxiety away).
