fast paced music

Recently I got an android phone. My son suggested Pandora Radio - for the phone - I love it. When I go walking after school I listen to either Waka Waka station or believe it or not Irish Pub Rock Music - and get a variety of tunes that are fast paced and make for an effective cardio walk. emoticon

alternative topping

This evening I found the most amazing alternative topping for my baked sweet potato. I was cooking my chicken tenders in pineapple salsa and thought - why not. OMG - It is awesome.
Baked a yam in the microwave - heated two tablespoons of pineapple salsa and had a feast. I added a pat of butter - but that was it, not even salt. All for 180 calories!

Commit to yourself!

Commit to taking care of yourself - Set goals and decide you will meet those goals and then refuse to let other things get in the way. You will be happier in the end.

Think can not can't

If you focus on eating 5, 6 or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day and not what you shouldn't eat (excess breads, fats, etc) you will have an easier time of modifying your lifestyle. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Stress eating

Recently I started the mindless eating that occurs as your stress builds. Once I recognized it - I could deal with it - by packing carrots, celery, humus - and increasing my B-complex. Stress didn't go away, but now I could deal with it in a healthy manner. emoticon

Nutrition Tracker

You have the option to add additional meals -
I've added mid-morning and afternoon snacks to help remind me to not to wait to the main meals to eat - small feedings throughout the day helps keep the metabolism burning! emoticon

Nothing is forbidden

I've found not forbidding myself from certain foods, but eating my fill of other before I grab a piece of bread or cookies - helps me to eat less. Then when I do enjoy them, they taste even better.

Defense for Holiday over eatting

When I know I'm going out for dinner - especially the holidays - I make sure I eat 3 or 4 servings of veggies before going to the hostess' house. That way I'm not starved and I make sure I eat my veggies w/out all the cheese, etc sauces that make the dinners special.

I need the steps

Whenever something needs to be done or taken somewhere, I volunteer usually calling out the phrase -" I'll do it, I need the steps". The more I move - the more likely I am to continue loosing and keep off what I've lost. emoticon
