Just Get Ready

Ive recently returned to college and this site and I've been tired and unmotivated lately. I've noticed that by forcing myself to just get my workout clothes on when I know I have an hour until my roommate comes back, I become more energized and willing to workout, and put myself in a better mood for the rest of the day knowing I've done my workout

Save yourself

Every time I see a vending machine or feel hungry, I'm tempted to buy a bag of m&ms. That's at least 200 calories plus the $1 it costs. Every time I avoid buying them, I'm going to start putting that dollar aside.

Get Rid of the Problem

I still had a big, full basket of candy from my parents back home. And of course I'd eat from it all the time. After tracking the little innocent seeming eggs, I realized it was really slowing my down, so I put every single piece of candy on a plate and left it in the lounge with a note telling people to take what they wanted.

Stop Chocolate!

Anyone else who can't stop eating chocolate?

Fill up a water bottle or 16 ounce cup with water and use a Crystal Light Ice Tea pack (or whichever you prefer). 10 calories, and the taste mixes terribly with chocolate!

Sharing is Caring!

Did anyone else get enough Easter candy to last a year? I really don't want to eat it all myself, so I leave it out on my desk and tell all my friends walking by to take some.

Distracting Snack

To keep your mouth busy, make an ice pop!

Get some 3 ounce "bathroom cups" and fill them 3/4 the way with 100% juice. Place a piece of tape across the middle of the cup, and stick a toothpick through it at the center. Stick them in the freezer for a few hours.

Quick Motivation

Each day, I read the daily motivational quote and write it down on a post it note, with the date. I stick each note together, and have a snack of great quotes, one for each day I have been being healthy through this site. It's nice for a quick read without going online.

Making it Easier

A lot of times I find great workouts online, bookmark the page, ans say I'll do it later.
Then completely forget about it.

Now, I write down small descriptions of workouts, like the 60 second cardio moves, on an index card.

Goals in Sight

I recently bought a nice cotton dress, knowing it was too tight on my love handles. So I keep it on a hook facing the desk where I usually snack (I'm a college student, living in a broom closet) so I can always see it. I really like the dress, and I need to lose about 5 pounds to look good enough to wear it out.
