Water Helps Drown Cravings

I have found that when I am really trying to fight a craving, it helps to drink a glass (or 2) of water and wait 10 minutes. It has worked so successfully for me, that I now tell myself I can have whatever it is I want if I simply drink my water and wait 10 minutes first. More than half the time, the craving passes and I'm better hydrated. I was initially inspired by reading an article that we sometimes crave sugar (or think we're hungry...) when we're actually thirsty. Crazy, huh?

10 minute Movement Breaks

When I first started just 2 months ago I was SOOOO unfit. Just walking from the parking lot into the building I work in was enough. So I started parking at the far end of the parking lot and walking the long way in. I made a point at break time to just go out and walk around my building ONCE. By incorporating just two 10-minute movement breaks into my daily schedule everyday I started to see a difference. Now I can walk a mile at a time and look forward to those breaks! You can do it too!

Do not start tomorrow. Do not have a "last supper". Do not wait until you have more time. Start right now! Didn't eat a good breakfast? It doesn't matter - time to start tracking and planning your healthy dinner for tonight. You deserve to be feeling better and in control right now.
