Walk

If I can take a few minutes away from my desk during stressful times, I find it helps reduce my stress level. A couple laps around the building is plenty to feel better.

When I couldn't sleep I got on Spark and started getting points.

Even though I did eat, I made healthy choices and logged my points. I also did a short exercise video which helped me get back to sleep. This is a big improvement for me over the past binging habit. I have included the calories from last night in today's count so feel I've progressed instead of giving up as I always did in the past. Today is a new day!

Working Out Stress

When feeling overwhelmed by stress, I go bowling and laugh at how bad I am at it. Bowling allows me to release pent-up aggression. If there is no lane available at the bowling alley, it's time to shake out my duster outside. Negative energy, be gone!

Stress Reliever

Every morning whether warm or cold, I make myself a cup of coffee, sit out on the porch and chill. I'll log into Spark Coach. Pet the cat. Listen to the birds. Breathe in the fresh air. Start my day chilled. I spend as long as my morning cup of Joe. But ohhhhhh, the peace it brings to the rest of the day.

All about your drink :D

I drink cool water to keep hydrated, it tastes better cold too. Cold water also burns calories because your body needs to warm it in order to process it.
I drink warm drinks, hot tea, if I am feeling hungry. Warm/hot drinks make you feel satiated.
It may not be the best tricks, but they are definitely helpful to me. Especially the hot drink emoticon

Quick and easy way to clean grass stains off white leather shoes

Sometimes I forget and wear my newer white leather walking shoes to mow the yard. I always felt like my shoes were "ruined", but today, I wiped them down with several sheets of a generic brand of "diaper wipes" - and that worked perfectly!

Vision Board

For various goals in my life I always start with a "Vision Board" A sortof collage made up of photos, pictures (from magazines or elsewhere), key motivational images and words that pertain to the goals I will achieve. Currently I am in the process of recreating myself by the time I turn 60 (in 2 years) and weight loss is a part of that

TROOPONS - Support Our Troops with coupons

Instead of mindless eating during prime time TV, I clip coupons that I don't use for the troops. They even take some expired ones! This is a great cause AND keeps my fingers busy so I don't grab those chips. It takes some time to clip and sort, but I feel it's the least I can do! Go to their website for more info: www.supportourtroops.org
UPDATE: Just sent out $4,184.57 worth of coupons today!!
