Never give up!
No matter how hard things get, never stop trying. Take a break if you have to, but keep coming back to you life goals.
Tell your friends and family about your goals. They will help you achieve them!
The Exercise Routine
My secret to success is in my routine.
Every morning, I get up, spend 20-3- minutes doing simple yoga and drink my pot of tea. Then I make a small healthy breakfast and my daily smoothie.
I have 10 minutes to write something for SparkPeople, then I get ready for work.
It works for me, and keeps me in line with my life goals.
Have a great day!
Love the fabulous feeling of healthy!
There are two feelings that I have loved for many years:
1. The feeling of sweets in my mouth, and that satiated full feeling after a tasty meal.
2. the peaceful feeling that I have after a good run, or when I am on top of a beautiful mountain.
I have taught myself to pass up #1 whenever possible. I save that satiated feeling for special times with friends and family. Even then, I hold myself in check. I know that overeating is a weakness of mine.
Drink your 8 glasses of water every day. Include peppermint tea, and other noncafinated teas in with your water!
Tempted? Wait 5 minutes!
Today I avoided a bad food choice by just putting it off for 5 minutes. I enjoyed the white truffle ghost so much that just a little ice cream today did not seem right.
When I splurge, I will really enjoy it. A little ice cream would have left me wanting more. Instead, I came home and made a vegetable soup. When itís splurge time, I will have something really tasty!
Todayís enjoyment comes from enjoying the fall foliage.
Never give up! Take a break if you need one, but never quit.
I blog something encouraging every day. In the process, I am encouraged by both my words, and the comments of others. Read my blog about snowflakes!
When you are making a bowl of salad, make 2! Make enough for several days of salads. You will eat more salad when salad is ready, or even partially ready for you to eat.
Get up early!
My key to success is to get up at 5 and have time to first pray. exercise and Spark. It sets my mood for the rest of the day.
I never make just one salad. I always make 2-3 salads and have one ready for tomorrow's lunch. When I need something to eat, I grab the salad first.
