Oatmeal sticks with you

I have oatmeal for breakfast. I add a Tbl of raisins, 2 dried apple rings and cinnamon. After cooking I add 12 chopped almonds and sweeten with an artificial sugar (only 1 a day). Then I add a splash of milk. It keeps me satisfied most of the morning and tastes great!

Drink water lose weight

While I am preparing my breakfast, lunch and dinner, I drink 2 cups of water. The water helps to keep me from over eating because it fills me up and it adds to my over all health during the day. After my daily workout I drink 2 cups of water to replace what I have lost and this brings my total up to 8 cups already. If I work out twice there is 10 cups of water and then in the evening when I am relaxing, I will have another 2 cups. How easy is that to get your H2o into your daily recommendations

Measuring Cups

Easy measureing. Since servings are not always easy, for things like cereal, I keep the proper serving size measuring cup in the container. I get the exact serving size without having to pour into a measuring cup.

Leave your money at home!

When I go to the gym or out for a walk, I only bring my gym card and driver's license with me. That way after my workout when I'm on my way home, if that tempting voice starts wanting me to stop and pick up a snack, I HAVE no choice but to go home and eat a healthy snack there.

1 indulgent snack per day!

Well I think that I truly must live by this 80/20 rule seems to be working!! Honestly there is no way I could EVER give up on all the things I love in life...so sticking to ensuring I have one snack per day keeps a good balance of eating 80% clean and %20 junk! Like I say not that I NEED to have a cookie but my lord I love my chocolate chip cookies and if I get my butt on the treadmill and work it I deserve a cookie!!

Eat Ice Cream from a 1/4 Measuring Cup

An ice cream serving is usually 1/2 cup. Put it into a 1/4 Measuring Cup & eat it from there. It satisfies my taste buds & tricks my fat craving demons all at the same time. If I want more, I dish up another 1/4 cup. It feels like I'm eating seconds but really it's only 1 serving

Begin with Batches

I'm most likely to make an unhealthy meal choice when I'm rushed or tired. To avoid this I set aside time to cook in large batches. Then I freeze meals in individual portion sizes. When I don't have time to make lunch or I'm too tired to cook dinner, I just pull something out of the freezer.

Lunch: Pack it at Night

I pack my lunch each night, usually when I'm cleaning up from dinner. That way, when I'm rushed in the morning, I can't forget to make a healthy lunch.
