Don't Clean Your Plate

Always leave some food on your plate - even if only 1 bite. It will help you un-learn that you need to clean your plate - like your mother always told you to !!

Make It A Routine

I am no longer able to work out in the mornings like I like to so as soon as I walk in the door in the afternoon, I change into my workout clothes and head right back out the door. Do not pass go and collect 200 dollars. Just get outside as fast as you can.

Excercise even when u don't want to.

It's hard to excercise when u do not have the motivation. But if you just push yourself and make it a priority it becomes a habit. Then all you can do is think about how can I fit a workout in. If I'm having a busy day and I can't get a full hour of excercise in I'll fit in just 20 mins.

All or Nothing Mentality

What a relief it is to know that I have choices! It has been a long time coming after growing up in an environment where the all or nothing mentality prevailed.

Save money on fuel

Get a smaller car or a car with a smaller engine. Some people buy a car due to its looks or practical features. Going for a smaller car or one with a smaller engine saves considerably on gas as well as servicing/maintenance costs.

In the parking lot

Before I decided I wanted to be healthier, I would always park close to the front of the parking lot. NOW, I park at the back of the lot and pick up the pace when I walk into the store.

Spark people make me brave

I have always talked bad about how fat I was or am. But I always made it a joke and even laughed when others made a joke about it. But now I have more tools to my benefit so I can now speak of how it really does hurt instead of laughing along with others.

One Hour at a Time

I just keep telling myself "one hour at a time" to get through difficult days - to remind myself that each hour I stay strong is an hour closer to my goals.

Delete, delete, delete

I found that I would order things I didn't need by getting a "really good" coupon in my email from a site I used in the past. Delete those "great offer" coupons from your email unless you already had planned a purchase from that vendor.
