Sign up for Races

Signing up for races in upcoming weeks and months keeps me training for a goal. It prevents me from doubting my abilities when the race comes up. I signed up for it, I better run it: Ready or Not.

TRACK

I have found it is so easy to eat WAY too many calories if I don't write down everything. For me, the BEST thing is to write down ALL the things I will eat, and STICK TO THAT LIST!!!

Wintergreen

I keep a bowl of pink wintergreen mints on the coffee table. I find when I need something sweet, instead of reaching for the chocolate, I pop a couple of those in my mouth and suck on them. They're just sweet enough and the mint cleanses my palate. And they're only 12.5 calories each.

Don't Watch Cooking shows on TV

If you're a foodie like me, don't watch any cooking shows on tv, as they only make you hungry. Watch the learning channel or home and garden tv instead. This way you're not thinking about making that potato salad, but how to clear clutter out of your family room, etc.. emoticon

Avoid mindless eating while watching TV

I keep a dish of 3 or 4 packs of sugarless gum by the sofa for when I get the munchies watching TV. There are different flavors to keep me from being bored chewing the same thing.

Drink lemon water.

Having a lemon in water will boost you weight loss and can taste better then plain water. Especially when drinking two cups upon waking. This boosts your metabolism and leaves your face looking thinner throughout the day.

Meditation

I began meditating several months ago and decided it was time to loose my weight. When you meditate everything is effortless, but you need to be consistent in your meditation. I meditate twice daily for 30 minutes each time. emoticon

Eight Cups of Water

emoticon Eight cups of water was really hard for me until I purchase a 32 oz. water bottle. I just drink two of those a day and I'm good! Also the bottle doesn't have a screw top, its easy to get into and leak proof so far. Need to carry it with you everyday for this to work.
