Don't Try to Find Time - Just Do It

I never "find" time to exercise - I just exercise and then somehow the time comes to fit in all the other things.

Dress for Success

Wear your 'best' exercise clothes, regardless of where you exercise. If you have only one good outfit wash it more often if needed. Get rid of the old ripped faded baggy clothes and wear something that feels and look goods and makes you feel like an athlete.

Freeze! The Chocolate That Is

Freeze dark or any kind of decadent chocolate you like. I find that if I let the bag just sit in my cupboard I am more apt to just grab piece after piece until I've binged big time. Freezing it not only keeps you from overindulging, but letting it melt slowly in your mouth helps you feel satisfied with less.

Don't Forget To EAT!

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and it truly is for many reasons. Breakfast should be your BIGGEST meal of the day. Plan a breakfast high in protein, carbs, and fiber. It's so important because it jumpstarts your metabolism in the morning. If you skip breakfast because there's no time, I recommend a protein bar like the Detour Lean Muscle Bar. 370 cal, 3g fiber, 33 carbs, and 32g of protein and a slice of Nature's own white wheat w/2.5g fiber and 55 calories.

A Better Burger Bun!

Next time you make a burger at home, try using an Orowheat 100% Whole Wheat Sandwich Thin in place of your usual burger bun. They taste great, and really allow the flavor of your burger to shine through!

Being Outside in the summer heat

Drink 2~4 glasses of cool fluids for each hour of physical activity you do outside, including walking. Don't forget your sunglasses to protect your eyes!
