Cut out baked goods

I was pretty much hooked on baked goods. Removed them from my diet except for allowing one "cheat" day per week.

That in addition to daily cardio work contributed to 20 pound weight loss.

Drinking enough water

I have found that for me, one of the best ways to be sure I get the sufficient amount of water (and not overeat!) is to take a sip of water between each bite when I eat. Even if it is a snack, I do this, and it has really helped with my weight loss goals!

Walking

I am a smoker. Yes, I need to quit. Instead of sitting outside to smoke I know walk fast up and down my driveway. I can get at least 600 steps in per cigarette. emoticon emoticon

Walking across the parking lot...to the store.

I park the furthest away from the store and get in some extra walking.

Workout at lunch

I'm lucky enough to work within 5 minutes of a gym. So, instead of going out to lunch or just killing time, I head over and get a good 30-45 workout it 4 or 5 days a week. I eat my lunch when I get back to my desk.

Create a workout plan

Whether you workout in a gym or at home, you should create a plan of daily workouts. Start with one week at a time and write down what you're going to do on each day and for how long. If you get extra exercise in, it's a bonus! Also, try to alternate between exercises to avoid getting bored.

Exercise

Try to fit as much exercise that you can in a day. If you need to take a trip less than 1 mile walk to your destination. Plan family excursion that center on hiking. It does not have to be rough terrain. You get exercise, spend time with the family & enjoy nature.

Cardio dance workouts!

I feel so much more motivated to exercise when I have a workout that's fun and different. Hip hop, belly dance, and even hula are really fun and a great workout!

Love My Pedometer

Consistently wearing my pedometer has made me much more aware of how much I move during a day. I get up and "walk" even when I'm watching tv- no more sitting for hours at a time!

Too Busy in the Evening, Try Mornings!

When you find yourself too busy in the evenings to fit in a workout. Try to commute to work in a different manner or get in early. I now bike to work and walk to lunch to fit in exercise I normally would have to go without during busy weeks at the office.
