Baggies and cooking spray are your friend

Roast or grill veggies (carrots, onion, peppers, etc) using olive oil cooking spray to avoid fat and calories and use seasonings. I cook a lot at once, weigh out 6 oz and put them in a baggies and into the freezer. They are sooo sweet when they are thawed. I do the same with meat so it's on hand.

Re-evaluation

It's okay to start fresh when you're having trouble staying consistent. Sometimes evaluating what isn't working is the next step for continued (or new!) success.

Stinky Sneaker Secret

Fight stinky workout sneakers in your locker/ closet by putting a Bounce sheet in them after working out. I put Bounce sheets in all of my drawers and closets so my clothes keep smelling fresh. Just recycle the ones fresh out of the dryer when you do laundry.

Skinny Cow Low Fat Ice Cream Sandwiches

When I look for a treat I like to make sure it has some nutritional value. These are great because they only have 140 calories and 1.5 grams of fat. The carbs are a little high at 30 grams, sugar is 15 grams, however they do have 3 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein. Just Yummy!

Exercise first thing in the morning

Getting up at 4:30 and getting my exercise done before I am awake enough to make excuses works for me!

Tools of the trade

Set your smaller pieces of exercise equipment, i.e. resistance bands, dumbbells., in a common area so you can fit in a little exercise throughout your day.
