Vary Your Caloric Intake

Jillian Michaels said on the Biggest Loser to vary your caloric intake: eat on the low end for two days, eat in the middle range for three days, eat on the high end (even going a little over) on two days. This keeps your body guessing. I did this all last week and lost 3.5 lbs!

Think of your Calories as a Budget

The best thing I was ever told was to think of my calories as a budget. Know how many you can have each day and before you eat something ask yourself if you can afford it. If it's worth the amount you have to spend and you have the calories eat it if not rethink it.

Lunch: Pack it at Night

I pack my lunch each night, usually when I'm cleaning up from dinner. That way, when I'm rushed in the morning, I can't forget to make a healthy lunch.

Shop Aldi's - They Have Healthy Options, I Swear

I used to think that Aldi's was only full of super processed junk food. However, I have found my favorite things there like hummus, light cheese sticks, produce, low sodium/sugar canned fruit and soups. While there are certainly temptations if you are looking to lose weight and save money Aldi's can't be beat!

A place for everything

I now use the example of knowing exactly where my toothbrush goes to keep me on track for having a place for each item as defined as that.

How Spring Cleaning Helps!

One doesn't have to spring clean all the time ........ in fact LESS if you are vigilant about picking up after yourself and having a place for everything. I find I can clean as I go on a daily basis, minutes here and there ........ and find extra time for workouts, and fun in general! (wrote blog: Spring Has Sprung" on 3-15-14) Hope you come read.

Don't Dither Move On

If packing up a house, don't dither over items you're not sure if you want them packed or are unsure how to pack them. Keep moving and working on the sure things. You'll find while you're showering or doing other tasks, your mind will be working behind the scenes to help you decide.

Stay in touch!!

When I was doing my best during weight loss was when I checked in with SP every day. Then life got crazy and I got away from the site. Of course then I gained almost all my weight back!
