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! :)

Hypnosis

When I decided that I had to lose weight and get healthier I had several visits with a hypnotist. We worked on helping me to commit to healthy eating most of the time, tracking what I ate, staying at my calorie goal and moving every day. This is a lifestyle change that I've stuck with since October 2011 and down 80 pounds. emoticon

Tasty Low Calorie Salad Dressing

I'm really picky about my salad dressing, but I found a new one "Follow Your Heart" Low Fat Ranch, which works great! It's only 25 calories for 2 tbsp and it is very tasty. It's a bit thin, but the flavor is full and I find I use way less calories than before. Plus there's no cholesterol.

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.

Asian Hot Pot is easy to do at home

I like that Asian hot pot means you can eat for hours and nibble on small pieces of food, and large veggie portions and the leftovers are soup for lunches.

The hot pot pan was only $40 at my asian market that also sells the specially sliced shabu-shabu meats.

Nutritious and frugal

cocoa/chocolate packets- use half- and save the rest for later in the day!

I discovered Carnation Instant Breakfast packets at the gym when they gave them away for free in the locker room. I happened to have a 16.9 oz bottled water and shook it up on my way to my car. I felt great after! I only buy two boxes/year. One of the variety pack and one lower sugar. So... when i'm below my goal of 6 cups of water/day- i mix half a packet and the water is down in a minute and I'm saving 1/2 the calories. I personally think we pee out most the added nutrients.

eat lots of veggies before going food shopping

Just that. You're full, so hopefully no impulse buy and you are full with the right kind of food.

Cough drops....your best friend and you didn't even know it.

It happens to us all. A craving hits. You can't seem to stop yourself from eating whatever unhealthy food you think you "need". My solution? Cough drops. Pop a menthol cough drop in your mouth. Trust me when I say NOTHING tastes good following a cough drop. I use this at parties as well. I'll eat the healthiest things I can put on my plate and when I'm done, pop in a cough drop. It usually does the trick. I hope it works for you as well.
