Healthy Snacks

As soon as I bring home veggies from grocery shopping I cut them up into bite size pieces and put them in a clear container in the frig, top shelf front and center. Now my family has been grabbing the veggies more often then other snack foods.

I trust myself so that I can be happy and lose weight.

I am a Flexatarian because I eat the foods that I really like even when it seems odd to others. When ever I start losing weight a few people that are gaining will give me constant advice. Which often made me doubt myself. But I have lost 8 inches in my waist over 3 months. emoticon

ignore the lazy girl/boy m-f

ignore the lazy person inside you that says to stay in your cave and remain a bear. do you want to remain in the shape of a bear? i thought not. so just robotically get up and do your cardio and think of it as brushing your teeth (something you need to do for your health and wellness, too).

Eternal Vigilance PLUS Positive Self-Talk

Eternal vigilance means that I track my food, my exercise and my weight daily. But when you're no longer losing, you're no longer getting external compliments: others take the slim you for granted. That's when the positive self-talk and small rewards (bribes?) become key to weight maintenance!

Nutrition Tracker Entries

If you have a menu that you eat on a regular basis, you can go back to a day that has that menu logged and copy it to the current date. My breakfast seldom varies. Oatmeal with cinnamon and cranraisons, 1/4 cup 1% milk, 1 cup orange juice, Coffee with 14 cup milk. I can log all this with one click.

Don't want to work out?

On those days when I don't want to get up at 4:30 AM to work out, I say to myself "Remember, you've never regretted a workout, but you always regret NOT working out." Works every time!

Ended late night cravings with battery powered (massaging) toothbrush

The money I spent on Junk Food in one trip to the grocery store paid for a new Arm & Hammer battery powered toothbrush. Now, when I have a craving in the evening for that bowl of ice cream, I just go for the clean mouth massage instead.

After the darkness comes the dawn

Even the dark times have their use; spring bulbs are nourished in the cold and dark winter earth and Easter follows Good Friday. I try to remember this.
