"Bribery!" - the best thing since sliced bread??

When reasoning, tantrum throwing, excuses don't work to get out of the door and walk, or out of bed, or off the couch to exercise...bribery is my fallback wing girl! (I'll let you wear your SpongeBob "Geeks Rule" tshirt if you get up and go for that walk...you can take your camera and take nature snaps along the way if you do the first 3kms at least at your best pace....Self, you can listen to "Moves like Jagger" 20 times in a row for all I care if you're Jumping-Jackin' while it's playing!)

Eating Out

When eating out, I bring my own container (I hate those styrofoam clam shells), and I pack 1/2 the meal in it BEFORE I eat, so I am free to clean my plate.

Get a Whoodle!

I have a whoodle- a very active dog - if I don't walk him a lot every day he drives my family crazy. Instant support from my family and lots of exercise every day for me. I have no choice but to emoticon .

Weekend Cooking

Cook several meals for the upcoming week. I cook at least 2-3 different meals (and usually 2-3 of each meal and put extras in freezer) for the up coming week and all you have to do is add your veggies!

get up and move

If I have to sit for long periods of time, every 15 minutes or so, I get up and move around for 5 minutes.

Cough drops....your best friend and you didn't even know it.

It happens to us all. A craving hits. You can't seem to stop yourself from eating whatever unhealthy food you think you "need". My solution? Cough drops. Pop a menthol cough drop in your mouth. Trust me when I say NOTHING tastes good following a cough drop. I use this at parties as well. I'll eat the healthiest things I can put on my plate and when I'm done, pop in a cough drop. It usually does the trick. I hope it works for you as well.

Burn 400+ calories a day with a stand-up desk

You can burn 400 calories a day just by switching from sitting all day to standing. There's a do-it-yourself stand-up desk kit from bits you ca get at IKEA for under $25. I made one for myself, and bought an anti-fatigue mat so my feet/legs wouldn't get sore. Also, because I'm already standing, walking around is something I do a lot more often.
