Be Prepared

I have found that if I prepackage my snacks (carrot sticks, any cut up fresh veggies), cut up fruit, cheese cubes, etc., I have a better chance of keeping my Blood Sugar regulated. No More Digging thru the cabinets for something to Snack On !!!!

Every Week I Try To Change My Routine Just A Little

Last week I cut my 2 XL cup a day coffee habit down to one large cup with cream. This week I am having one large cup a day with almond milk instead of cream. It really is about the small changes that make all the difference in the long run. Small changes will keep you from going crazy.

Accountability

I go to a water aerobics class twice a week with four friends and that keeps me accountable! I also attend my husbands cardiac rehab program three times weekly which is a really good workout and that helps support him in his heart health and me in my weight loss!
