Never beat yourself

Never tell yourself you made a mistake, you really just gave your body a greater challenge and your mind more motivation to work harder in the gym! Calling yourself out on double snacking or what not will only bring you down and ruin your mood with your friend or family when really ther is nothing you can do but to work harder in the gym and/or let it go. Stay Positive! :)

Hypnosis

When I decided that I had to lose weight and get healthier I had several visits with a hypnotist. We worked on helping me to commit to healthy eating most of the time, tracking what I ate, staying at my calorie goal and moving every day. This is a lifestyle change that I've stuck with since October 2011 and down 80 pounds. emoticon

Don't weigh yourself after a sinful day!

Weighing yourself right after having a bad day will not reflect your true weight! So this might get you down without a good reason. Just get back on track and weigh yourself then! emoticon

Dancing in the office

I shut my office door and dance to a favorite song at least twice a day. I try and pick a song that is at least three minutes long.

OMAT - One Month At A Time

In my OMAT team, we pick one reasonable and reachable goal for each month and work on that small goal for a whole month. By the time the month is done, you've now broken an old habit and created a new one! I've been doing this since September 2013 and it's the one thing that helped me finally budge the scale!

Throwing the ball with the dog

If your dog likes when you throw the ball like mine does then here's an idea I found out today.
Throw the ball and do jumping jacks until they bring it back.

Love long-cooking oatmeal? Hate stirring? Use your crockpot

My hubby loves the oatmeal that takes 40 minutes of constant stirring until it's cooked. (example is McCann's Steel Cut Oat Meal).

Now he can use a small crockpot, 4 cups cold water, 1 cup oats and set it on low just before going to sleep.

6 hours later, an entire pot of perfectly cooked oatmeal.

Me First

I have a savings account, and money goes in every time I get paid. Over time, I've increased the amount I deposit. The real trick is to save more than you think you can. After saving for years but not having as much as I thought I should, I challenged myself to save a certain amount from every paycheck - no matter what.

When you have savings to fall back on, you don't worry about paying your bills. Less stress leads to a happier life.

Asian Hot Pot is easy to do at home

I like that Asian hot pot means you can eat for hours and nibble on small pieces of food, and large veggie portions and the leftovers are soup for lunches.

The hot pot pan was only $40 at my asian market that also sells the specially sliced shabu-shabu meats.

Nutritious and frugal
