Pull out your measuring tape

I rarely step on the scale anymore. My measuring tape is a much better indicator of my progress. Since muscle weighs more than fat in one's body and takes up less space, inches reduced tells a better story than a simple weight number. If the scale hasn't budged *and* I've lost a few inches, obviously I'm shedding fat and gaining muscle. So ditch the scale and get out your measuring tape once a month.

Visualize Your Morning

Mornings are not my best time of day. As a stay at home mom, I can flit away a few hours of the morning and then wonder where the time went. My new working plan is to plan my morning the night before. When I get into bed, I think about what I want to accomplish and then visualize myself performing my planned activities. This morning I was very slow moving. Because I had planned and visualized my morning, I accomplished my plan. Slowly, but I accomplished it all the same!
