Not watching the clock

I set a timer so I don't focus on the time. Especially on a challenging day it helps me know I'll complete my workout but not let the clock seem that it has stopped.

stop hitting the snooze button

If you have to hit the snooze button or more than once, you're likely not getting enough quality sleep. This leads to a number of unhealthly situations. Monitor and start to increase you hours of sleep and check to see if other issues affect your sleep. emoticon

Fighting Negative thoughts and feelings

when i feel that way I take a journal and write on one page and answer the negative ideas on the opposite page after taking a break. Often then I can respond as I would if answering a friend or colleague and listen to the positive side of myself. emoticon

Cooked chickens

I found at my local grocery they clear out the days leftover cooked roasters, turkey breasts ect at 1/2 off after 7:30 PM It happens that's when I walk by and if they have some I'll pick one or two up. at 3.50 a bird they cost less than if I bought it and cooked them myself.

Getting Walking in

I keep my sneakers in the car, when I get home I put them on and take off. I find I'm more likely to walk if I do it first before getting involved in the evening activities
