Working toward kicking the Diet Soda Habit to the curb!

I have to admit that I am addicted to Diet Soda. For years, I have regularly drank 2-4 cans a day.. sometimes more. For sure this isn't good for my body or my pocketbook. Since I can't quit cold turkey, I have told myself that I can have one only after I drink 8 oz of water first. It is working! The past two days I have only had one... If you have issues with soda you might want to give this strategy a try. Spark on!!

It's OK to rest!

We often have days when we don't feel like working out, but usually once we get going we get in a groove and are in for the long haul. However, if your body is sending a stronger-than-usual signal that it's just not up for a workout today, it's ok to listen once in a while and take a break for a day. Sometimes we need a day of rest so that we're at our best when tomorrow comes.

Filling my 32-oz Nalgene bottle with water when I start the workday, I finish it often mid-day, and sometimes I go for a re-fill.

Drink Water

Whenever I feel "hungry" between meals, I reach for my water bottle and drink at least 8-12 oz.

This practice has helped me to get beyond the cravings and taken my mind off my so called "hunger". Drinking water fills the void, helps you feel fuller longer, so that you can make it to your next meal without cheating on sweet or salty snacks loaded with empty calories. Water is completely calorie free! And it's healthy! emoticon

Drink plenty of water

When I'm hungry, I reach for my water bottle first. Sometimes I realize that I'm just thirsty - not hungry. Before eating meals, I drink water so that I don't eat more than I have used to... emoticon Also, drinking more water has helped my energy level, reduced my headaches, and cleared my skin.

Running from Stress

Last year I trained for my first marathon, quite an undertaking for someone who is overweight and leads a busy life. However, I found that the more I ran the lower my stress was. I was working crazy overtime, raising 2 small children, maintaining a relationship and running 10-15 hours per week, between 4 and 22 miles at a shot. I found that my Sunday 20-mile run wasn't leaving me exhausted for the work week. On the contrary, I was more alert at work and more energized with my family.
