Gum or brushing teeth

After eating even a snack, I either go and brush my teeth or get a piece of gum. It deters me from wanting to eat more. emoticon

Don't eat anything that comes through a window!

Eating while driving can be more dangerous than texting. The word search in Fast food is FAT just take out the s for speedy. Plan ahead using SparkPeople and than go in and eat or wait til you get home. Cut the meal in half and use .5 as the serving size and have an entire meal for tomorrow. emoticon

Getting enough water is as easy as 1,2,3,4

Many say it's hard to get enough water. Here is how I worked up to getting my water:

1. 8 glasses is daunting, but 4 seemed easy. So I started with 1 glass with breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack.

2. 4 was easy (8 still seemed like too much) so I made my 4 bigger. 4 bottles of water (16oz each) and suddenly I was drinking my 8 glasses.

3. I increased the size of my bottles by 4 oz at a time (first 20 then 24) now I drink 4 24 oz bottles

4. you can finish one bottle on any drive

Ice cream replacement

Put your favorite 0% fat fruit flavored yogurt in the freezer for 3 hrs and it'll have the texture and taste of ice cream in a fraction of the calories! (My favorite is Elle & Vire 0% fat strawberry yogurt at just 51 kcals!)

Same food; different presentation

The basic breakfast of eggs, bacon, and cheese can be presented so that it appears to be quite different meals.
Chop up your veggies and bacon and heat in skillet, pour over the scrambled eggs, put lid on top, put on low for 20 mins is a fritata. Add cheese at the end of cooking.
Or line a muffin tin with cooked strip of bacon, add the scrambled eggs, bake for 20 mins at 400 -- now you have a breakfast muffin. Top with cheese.
Or keep it simple and just scramble the eggs and bacon

Exploring Super Foods using Sparkrecipes

When I come across foods that are so-called super foods, I go immediately to Sparkrecipes to find ways to use them. The latest super foods are quinoa, chia seed and kale. I've never cooked with those foods, so it's a new culinary adventure. It's great that I have a husband that will try anything new! emoticon

Shredded Parmesan vs shredded cheddar

Parmesan has about 30 less calories per 4 Tablespoons, and half the fat. For me it's a better choice for an omelet.
Also I've noticed that already shredded cheddar frequently is coated with something that has carbs.

Never beat yourself

Never tell yourself you made a mistake, you really just gave your body a greater challenge and your mind more motivation to work harder in the gym! Calling yourself out on double snacking or what not will only bring you down and ruin your mood with your friend or family when really ther is nothing you can do but to work harder in the gym and/or let it go. Stay Positive! :)
