The Kitchen is "CLOSED"

After reading today's article on procrastination, I know I am on my way. I started tidying up the kitchen after dinner (versus my morning routine). Now upon waking, the kitchen is done (morning dread is gone too), Now I can have a new routine by using that time to exercise and set daily goals.

Ideal picture and description

Have a picture at least in your mind and better if you have it on paper. If you can identify with this image that you will look like once you reach your ideal goal, then you have beaten much of your weight loss struggle.

Will Power

When people offer me foods that will undermine my resolve, II just don't even think the food but just automatically turn it down. Any brief urge passes.

Staying out of the cupboards

When the urge to over eat sets in the first thing I do is put cream on my hands. The greasy feeling keeps me from wanting to touch food. Also I don't want to taste the cream while eating.
Hope this little trick works for you too.

Discouragement to Encouragement

On days where you feel discouraged and blue, just take a 15 minute stroll through a local park, around a lake, or along a stream. Your discouragement will be turned into encouragement, and the blues turned into smiles.

Inspiration to get you moving in song

This song can push me when I am ready to stop or push me when I don't want to exercise. "Put One Foot in Front of the Other"

Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you'll be walking cross the floor
Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you'll be walking out the door
