CARDIO!!

Every time someone asks me "how did you loose all the weight?" My answer is always the same "CARDIO"
Start with just 5 minutes a day and build on it every week. You'll get there!!

The scale doesn't lie

This is the best way to know if I need to scale my eating back and my exercise up after returning from a trip.. I'd rather know when the difference is small...before the weight creeps up on me!

Eat Breakfast!

Don't skip breakfast! But make it healthy--oatmeal, fresh fruit, non fat milk, egg white omelet, whole grain toast. It starts you out with the fuel you need to get through the morning and to be more active.

Snack

I make sure to pack at least two healthy snacks for my day at work. I leave them in my truck so that I have to take a break to walk out and get my snack. It keeps me moving and gets my mind off of the vending machine right next to my office.

Drink Tea

Whenever I feel like snacking, I make myself a cup of herbal tea and drink it. If I'm still hungry after drinking the tea, I know I'm legitimately hungry and will have a snack. But more often than not, having something hot and thinking about what I'm doing will stop me from snacking.

Weighing...

I used to avoid it like the plague, afraid of what I might see. Then I started doing it every day. Some days I'm up, some days I'm down, but it always helps me understand what worked and what didn't from the day before. Some disagree with this technique, but I've found it helps me stay on track.

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.
