Moderation In All Things

I have learned since being on Spark People that moderation in all things has helped me reach my goals. I eat the foods I love but only eat them in moderation so that I don't deprive myself. It is working for me. Then I don't feel like I am missing anything.

Getting My Water In During the Day

Whenever I go out to eat, I always ask for a glass of water as well as whatever I want to drink, unsweetened tea. I drink the water before my meal comes and then my drink with my meal. Good way to get in my water for the day!

Guilty Pleasures

Afternoon Snack

Every day during the week except weekends I have an afternoon snack. A bag of celery sticks, baby carrots and cherry tomatoes. I also have a piece of fruit and a Fiber One bar. It really helps me get through the afternoon and be ready to exercise when I leave work!

Get in Your Exercise While You Shower

In the morning before I take my shower, I do calf raises on the shower stall door. I also do wall push-ups or close arm wall push-ups after I put conditioner in my hair while I wait the 2 minutes. At the end of my shower I have a squeegee that I use to clean the doors. 3 exercises in one shower!
