Waste

I was always taught to clean my plate so I wouldn't waste food. Then one day my husband asked me why it was less wasteful to use my body as a garbage can for food I didn't want or need. I have never, ever forgotten that. I can leave food I don't need on the plate now. I won't use my body as a garbage can.

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!

First Track Then Eat

Before eating use your Spark Tracker to find out the nutritional numbers and know the calories you are about to consume. If the numbers are too high then make a different, healthier choice.

5 minutes

Some mornings I dread a workout. I tell myself I should get dressed and go anyway if I do five minutes it is 5 minutes more than I wanted to. Usually after 5 minutes I am committed to finishing the workout. Sometimes you have to take life 5 minutes at a time.

Don't eat anything that comes through a window!

Eating while driving can be more dangerous than texting. The word search in Fast food is FAT just take out the s for speedy. Plan ahead using SparkPeople and than go in and eat or wait til you get home. Cut the meal in half and use .5 as the serving size and have an entire meal for tomorrow. emoticon

Track before eating

I track what I eat before I eat it so I know where I'm at with calories. That way if I want a little extra, I can see if I've got the calories for it before I give in and eat it. It's like balancing a checkbook.

Begin with Batches

I'm most likely to make an unhealthy meal choice when I'm rushed or tired. To avoid this I set aside time to cook in large batches. Then I freeze meals in individual portion sizes. When I don't have time to make lunch or I'm too tired to cook dinner, I just pull something out of the freezer.

Exercise: The triple-whammy

A thirty minute workout is more than a thirty minute workout!

1. You're not consuming any calories during your workout.

2. You're are burning calories during your workout.

3. You will continue to burn more calories in the hour after your workout.
