Hours

It's not how many hours your workout, it's what you put into them.

Inches vs. Pounds

Losing inches instead of pounds. Don't give up just because the scale is not moving in the direction you want. You will probably lose inches before pounds. Give your body time to adjust to your new healthy lifestyle. It won't happen over night.

It's you vs. you!

In this battle of losing weight, the fight is you vs. you. You determine how much effort you are going to put in it. You determine if you are going to eat healthy. So kick your butt in gear and go after your goal! Don't let you get in the way of you.

Be Positive

Remember the good things you have accomplished up to that point, try changing some of your foods and workouts to things you have never tried before...just be positive and preserver. As long as you are trying and don't give up, the plateau can't last forever.

Sugar & Spice...

Buy foods without a lot of sugars and salt. Aside from being bad for you, they contain amounts that no person would ever consume on their own. Buy foods that you can sugar and salt yourself that you control the amount.

Different Route

i really enjoy my workouts, but the drive to my trainers office takes me by some extremely unhealthy places (mcdonalds, wendys, dennys, applebees...to just name a few). so to avoid temptation i take another route that is kind of out of the way, but the benefits definitely out weight the risks..

Try Something New

Try a new exercise to class to keep your workouts fresh and fun. You never know what you might like or what you are good at.

I am trying a kickboxing class and I am really excited about.

Good vs. Bad

Don't eat unhealthy foods just to make your calorie, fat, carb, etc. If you make healthier choices you will find that you can eat twice as much. Hitting your numbers are great, but you still need to think healthy.

It's not all in the numbers!

Remember that progress doesn't have to be measured by numbers. It can/should be measured with how you are feeling both mentally and physically.
