Prep Your Bills

I pay my bills the old fashioned way, by mail. To save time, I "prep" them as soon as they are brought into the house from the mailbox.

H20

I bought a 32 oz bottle of water at a convenience store a while back. I take it EVERYWHERE I go throughout the day. I strive to refill it 4 times a day. This means I take in a gallon of H2O daily. I feel SOOO much better. Oh yeah, and I am losing weight!

Focus on one thing at a time

Build up your skills and break habits gradually. Start with one thing that you want to change, when you accomplish that you'll feel stronger and ready for the next challenge. Baby steps really work. If you attempt everything at once you're likely to become overwhelmed.

Visual Water Glass

To get in all my water each day I pulled out a beautiful clear glass drink dispenser. Each morning I cut up a variety of fruits and add them to the dispenser along with a pitcher of ice and water. It is so pretty and it is visually inviting you to drink more water. emoticon emoticon

Linner! My secret weapon for staying within my calorie range.

You've heard of brunch, why not linner? When I'm hungry for a nice steak or other higher calorie restaurant meal, I make room for it on my nutrition tracker by eating a late lunch/early dinner. I eat a light snack at lunchtime and another in the evening and have one larger mid afternoon meal.

Take lots of pictures

Before pictures are great even if they hurt. You'll have something to compare results to. Don't forget to take pictures during your journey too. Its great to have pictures of doing active things, like hiking, walking, sports, etc. These moments will make you proud and motivate you even more.

How I get 9 glasses of water a day

I am the type of person that just can not drink plain water, I don't care how cold it is. I have a large water bottle (24 oz.)that I got from my mother in law for my birthday, and I add a packet of Propel Fitness Water to it 3 times a day.

remembering those around me

I have to remember I got myself this way not others but they are willing to help me get it off. If you don't feel like that walk with your friends do it anyway the conversation alone is worth it. I keep looking at it this way it is a little down time too. emoticon

Letting go

Everyday I have the opportunity to make many decisions, some are great and some well, need work. I'm learning to congratulate myself for the great decisions and letting go and forgiving myself for the not so great decisions. It is a process on the road to health.
