Get back up!
Everyone will fall. It is important to forgive yourself, and get back to moving forward ASAP!
Put off eating for just 5 minutes
When I am about to have an extra treat that I do need, I put it off, and do something away from the kitchen. For just 5 minutes. Sometimes that is all I need to overcome temptation
Spark every day
Every day I spend time entering my food and my exercise. I also write a short blog.
This discipline has helped me to be accountable to myself and my Spark Friends
Smile and be kind
No matter who you have to face, and what your job is today, smile and be kind to those around you. Respect and a kind attitude will make a difference in the lives of those around you, and in your own life as well.
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!
