Dance Masters

My friend and I hit the dance club on weekends! The music pumps you up and it doesn't matter if you can actually dance or not because you just move!

DO IT YOGA STYLE

This past week I had lower back troubles with pain
radiating down both legs down onto my feet. Never
in my life did I ever feel pain like this. I did research
and I am not a big fan of medicine, so I turned my complete
attention to Yoga and the different poses that target
pain in the body.

My salad trick

When I am eating salad, I keep the dressing on the side and dip my fork into it before spearing some veggies. I taste the dressing without overdoing it with the calories!

Wear tighter Clothes while eating

I don't know if this has already been posted, but I found that if I wear pants that were a bit loose before I went off track, and are now a bit tight, I wear them when I eat. I am reminded of my setback, and I feel full faster and eat less automatically.

tackle procrastination

If you walk into a room or look at an item and the first thing you think is "I need to...", stop and do it if you have the time (if it will take 10 min or less). If not, put it on your calendar as a task and stick to it.

Benchmarks

I bought jeans from goodwill in different sizes...14, 12, 10, 8. I love trying to work my way down the sizes and it is an inexpensive way to get to my goal. When one size gets too big I re-donate them too. emoticon

Focus on a new short-term goal!

I hit a plateau that lasted 6 months, and I wanted to give up! So, I gave myself a new goal: 2 months to get back in gear before my vacation in May. I started "Insanity" exercise program, got a HR monitor, and am tracking everything. It totally renewed my motivation, and I'm finally losing again!

Shred your cheese!

I used to think that 1 oz cheese serving was surgeon's general personal joke on me. Not anymore! Finely shredded, even half an ounce looks big - it gives you enough flavor and tricks your mind that you're eating lots! This doesn't work for pre-shreded stuff; it gets all packed in transport.
