The tried-and-true habits that have helped you lose weight the right way.
exercise morning and evening
I cook a large amount of food in one day, and then section them into proper serving sizes for lunches for my partner and I during the week. We don't have to think about lunch or snacks (I make those the night before) - just grab and go and we know it's all healthy and properly portioned, etc.!
It is so much easier to go workout or resist the poor food choices if I've had a good night's sleep. Make time for those 8 hours!
I keep a water bottle with me at all times and refill it often. By the end of the day I know I have drank the water that I should to stay healthy and promote my weight loss.
Make up all your salad ingredients. Put them in a ZipLock bag then pour a tablespoon of dressing (Vinegar & Oil mixes are best) then zip up the baggie and shake. All the ingredients are covered and you have used maybe a tablespoon of dressing. All the ingredients get covered.
I poor 1tbs of my favorite dressing into a side dish and dip my fork before each bite into the salad dressing and then put the salad on the fork. You tend to eat less salad dressing and you take more time in between each bite
Yes, this is an obvious one, but it really makes a difference. Having the right nutrition makes your body work better. The fiber, vitamins, and low calories make fruits and veggies the perfect snack or side dish to any meal.
Don't get stuck in ruts. Try different types of exercise during the week. Also try different foods. Don't let your body get used to you eating and exercising in the same manner each day. This is helping me.
On the days that I have to go to school, I usually pack a lunch the night before. The lunch usually includes a bottled water and at least one peanut butter sandwich on wheat bread. That way, I won't have to worry about wasting money and gas on getting something to eat in between classes.
I got excited to go and buy new water bottles. I now carry them around with me everywhere! Having it with me is a constant reminder that I'm on my way to getting healthy, and keeps me on track with drinking my water everywhere I go.
