Free Gym Exercise

I recently that one of the churches in my town has an inside walking track and small gym. You do not have to be a member of their church to use their facilities.
You do have to attend a one time short orientation to use their fitness equipment ( their insurance requires this) but not to use the track.
They do have a dress code such as no exercise bras worn without a top.
You can bring your own music of your choice.
Beat of all it is totally free.

Hydrogenated Oils~The Silent Killer that are in your foods

Hydrogenated oils are referred to as the Silent Killer, if you see the word hydrogenated on the label ingredients put that item back on the shelf. They are in pizza, pot pies, cereal, Crackers, cookies,donuts etc. Cyberparent says hydrogenated fats, although not saturated, act like saturated fats in our bodies and can do as much, or maybe even more, harm. Get your fats from Omega 3's and Omega 6's and please check the labels.

Spit it out

Lately I've been finding myself losing the battle against junk food and binges...however, a bite doesn't count against you until you swallow it. Twice in the last week I gave in to the temptation for a food I really didn't want or need. Both times I was immediately disappointed so I spit it out and avoided triggering a binge! Gross but effective.

Nuts about NUts

I carry a baggie of almonds (no salt) on hand. When I get cravings/hungry, I grab a handful and I feel satisfied! This is a GREAT way to not over eat and still feel the sensation of eating!

Begin with Batches

I'm most likely to make an unhealthy meal choice when I'm rushed or tired. To avoid this I set aside time to cook in large batches. Then I freeze meals in individual portion sizes. When I don't have time to make lunch or I'm too tired to cook dinner, I just pull something out of the freezer.

Stay positive!

I recently discovered that I wasn't eating enough for weight loss. It is something I struggle with due to allergies, but I am still positive that I am on the right track. Once I discovered this issue, I started to maintain the weight loss and I am losing a pound every two weeks. Win situation for me. Staying positive works! Smiling helps too.

Candy Jar at Work

I use to keep chocolate in my candy jar on my desk at work, but I have now replaced that with raisins. It helps with my craving for sugar and still fulfills my urge to snack.
