Plan Plan Plan

What has always helped for me is to plan - plan my food, plan my cardio, plan my strength. Don't just say you're going to do it, write down or enter your food into the nutrition tracker. Schedule your cardio/strength out for the week - track it in the fitness tracker.

drink, drink, and drink more water!

The most important thing in staying healthy and weight loss is to drink, drink drink! So many people struggle with it. I bought a SP water bottle and take it everywhere I go... it keeps the water cool and fresh. And you feel so much better when you are hydrated.

H2O

I drink 1.5 liters of water a day before I can drink my diet soda. I fillter water and refill bottles every Sunday for the following week. My soda consumption has been cut in half or more and I am saving money while staying hydrated.

Water Water Every Hour

I purchased a 4 cup mug with a straw.
Each day I have a "contest" with myself.
I try to empty the mug by Noon...then refill it.
I try to empty the mug by 3:00...then refill it at home.
I try to empty the mug by 10:00...voila...12 cups of water in for the day!

Staying on Track...Even at a Restaurant

When you're going to a restaurant, pull up the menu and plan your meal AHEAD of schedule. When you get to the restaurant, decline a menu. When the waitperson takes orders, give yours first and excuse yourself to the restroom to wash your hands while others are ordering to avoid changing your order.

Goal = Healthy Lifestyle NOT Weight loss

Bob Harper from the Biggest Loser said, "There is no finish line . . ." This really hit the nail on the head for me. That is when I realized that weight loss wasn't my goal, a healthy lifestyle was my goal. Point is, when you reach your "goal" weight you can't just stop there.

Find a Friend

Surrounding myself with friends who share my goals of healthy living and enjoy the activities I'm trying to include in my week really keeps me on track. We keep each other accountable and we challenge each other in training...and we get to race and celebrate together afterwards!
