chocolate cravings

I have learned that if I allow myself a small piece of chocolate at lunch time, this tempers my chocolate cravings. I buy the individually wrapped dark chocolates. I like Dove the best, but I usually get what ever is on sale. This keeps my cravings at bay!

Morning Affirmations

I have learned that my morning affirmations help reduce stress and start my day with a positive note. I get up a few minutes earlier each day and spend time with SparkCoach or a devotional book. I do this just before my morning workout or just after (depends on the day.) This is quality time I spend with myself. This only takes about 10 minutes and prepares me for the day ahead.

take the stairs

As much as possible, I take the stairs at work and add stair trips at home. If I have several things to take upstairs or downstairs at home, I break it into manageable chunks and make more trips up and down the stairs. At work, unless I am carrying something that I couldn't manage on the staircase (which really isn't all that often) I take the stairs. Our staircases at school are extraordinarily steep, so this is almost a workout all by itself!

Walmart Laps

When I got to Walmart or any other store, I park in front of the opposite door that I am planning on using. I take the longest route from one part of the store to another. I also try to find a cashier as far away from the car as I can.. My husband jokingly calls these my "Walmart Laps" emoticon

5 days a week doesn't have to mean 5 weekdays

I get up so early (5:30 am) that getting up even early during the work week seemed daunting. So, my five days starts on Saturday mornings! So two early mornings aren't really all that early. On the weekends, I can sleep in until 7 am and still get a good morning workout in. Once I started this...the exercise excuses disappeared! emoticon
