The Computer

I set a timer for 15 minutes when I sit down at the computer. When the timer goes off it is time to get up and do something while moving about. Tada---more housework don. If you want, time the housework for 15 minutes and then back to the computer.

Tracking Ahead

This is what keeps me from getting off track. If I wait until it's time to eat to see what I can or can't eat, I get stressed and have a very high potential of screwing up.

Lipton Green tea with super fruit

Drink this tea during the day. It fills me up and tastes good without anything in it. It comes in many different flavors.

Use a Fitness Program for Free!

When I began exercising, there were so many programs I wanted to try! We'd go broke purchasing every single workout DVD out there, right? So, instead of buying them, I get them free on YouTube. Although not every program is there, you can find several popular ones including: Zumba, Leslie Sansone, Denise Austin, Tae-Bo, P90X, The Tracy Anderson Method, Insanity... You can also do what I did, create a personalized playlist of the videos you like best for a customized, FREE workout!

Satisfying dessert

What I miss the most in low calorie diets is dessert. I cannot eat just one or two cookies. For 100 calories, I have a sixteen ounce root beer float. I use diet root beer and one-half cup (100 calories) of slow churned low fat vanilla ice cream. Mmmmmmm delicious and extremely satisfying!

Count the calories you didn't eat

Whenever I turn down a high calorie food instead of feeling deprived, I note it in my food diary and the calorie content of that food. On days where I very nearly don't go to the gym I note that down also. At the end of the week, I tot up how many extra calories I would have consumed/ not burned and take it away from my loss. Seeing the weight I would still be had I given into these impulses keeps me on the straight and narrow. Instead of feeling deprived, I feel empowered! :)
