Bites, Licks and Tastes Count!

It is so easy to forget about counting the Bites, Licks and Tastes...those little samples eaten unmindfully while cooking. To really be able to visualize what I'm doing, every so often I will take the food I would have sampled and placed it in a baggie that I refrigerate. I do this for a week, adding to the accumulation from the previous days. It is a real eye-opener and helps keep me aware of the "hidden calories" I've may have actually had. This is especially helpful during the holidays

Healthy options means making healthy choices

My downfall is potato chips, crackers and chocolate. I love these! Of course, the sugar and salt don't contribute to healthy eating. The other day, I bought some "baked" potato chips that were low in fat. As I sat eating them, I read the label. Yuck - that was enough to say no to even this supposedly healthy option. My secret - don't buy them and bring them in my house to tempt me. Making healthy choices means having healthy options.

Stress Buster

A stress buster for me is taking a walk and talking to Jesus. He listens and I know I can lay all my burdens of life with Him and I know He can do what is for my best with what I tell Him. My connection with Him takes out the stress of life knowing He doesn't ask me to do anything that isn't for my health or my well being. That makes me happy and free knowing I can let go and Let God control my life,

Cold Outside? Do your running warm-up inside.

When it is very cold outside, the transition from being inside to going outside is easier if your body is already warmed up. Therefore, doing a full warm-up routine inside before heading out the door can make Winter running less painful. Of course, you need appropriate Winter running clothing as well. My indoor warmup consists of 5 minutes of walking around the house, including up and down the stairs, followed by a series of five dynamic warm-up exercises (Google dynamic warmup).

Counting saturated fat grams

I counted calories and walked (and walked) for several years. I was stuck! I knew it had to be a food thing, but couldn't eat any less. I went to my dietician and she suggested counting saturated fat grams too. After that, I have dropped a pound a week!

Keep Passing the Torch!

I've noticed that sharing the Sparkpeople link with others keeps me motivated as well. I want to be prepared when they ask me questions related to navigating the site. emoticon

work on portion control

Before I serve a meal, I determine exactly what the correct portion is ahead of time and serve just that amount on the plate. Any left-overs are immediately put away so i'm not tempted to give myself seconds because its still sitting in the pan. emoticon

I exercise while standing in line

I have an unusual health condition that requires moving my body even when standing or sitting for a length of time. I have fun doing lunges while waiting in line at the grocery or kicking my legs forward while sitting in a public place. People occasionally stare, but I don't mind. Maybe it will start a new trend toward better fitness. Best wishes to all my SP friends out there. You're the best! Mary in Kansas emoticon

Ball Chair

I have an exercise ball chair at my office, it is good for my core but it is great for fidgeting.
