The art of writing

At times we want to just EAT but if you tune in you will find, you really are not hungry for food. We can be hungry for love,laughter, peace or adventure.Before you go to your fridge, grab a pen & paper & write your feelings out. Your craving will diminish & you will find what ur really hungry for.

Talk a walk each time you take a restroom break

At work I need to get up and take a restroom break a few times a day. Once I get up out of my chair I use it as a reminder to do some walking around at a quick pace before sitting back down. a quick 10 minute walk gets in some of my 10,000 daily steps and gets me energized for what I need to do next.

Egg and Spinach Scramble for Breakfast

Starting my day with this simple recipe, sets the tone for better choices throughout the day. The basic recipe starts with 1/3 - 1/2 C. eggwhites and 1 C baby spinach. Add fresh or leftover veggies, sauteed in spray oil. I like zucchini/summer squash, mushrooms, onion, sweet red/yellow peppers. Add some type of lean meat (like turkey breast) - 1 to 2 oz. chopped. Other great additions, pico de gallo, black olives, or parmesan cheese. Any combination makes a great start for your day.

Follow food plan and avoid cravings

I'm in maintenance but still cravings and overeating bothered me. I learned that making a food plan and sticking to it+ eating everything slowly, mindfully and sitting down prevents cravings.

Walk More

I walk extra if I want to or I clean my house. My Dr., just told me this week I'll never get rid of my Diabetes. I don't take meds any longer, I just control it with diet.

Yoga

Yoga is one of the few forms of exercise I can do without injury or causing a flare (fibromyalgia)... not only that, but it's a great stress reducer (helps keep anxiety away).

Just took patience...

After 21 yrs of suffering mobility issues, post motor vehicle accident, I began working with a Physical Therapist who knows what he is doing(finally). I also began using Spark People! With the support and info provided here I was able to apply what I need to not only lose the weight I need to but to get healthy and fit at the same time. When I began PT I had a range of motion of 0 degrees of my left ankle. Today? I was ased if I would like to be discharged for my birthday!

Rest

I have just started exercising muscle groups hard and have gotten sore, especially my back and arms. Today I took it easy and rested. I feel renewed. Maybe will rest again from exercise again tomorrow. This is a new adventure for me. I am 62 and have not exercised for ten years.

more veggies and whole grains

2 secrets - I took large bags of frozen vegetables into individual steamer bags with just 2 cups each - you can find these near the plastic sandwich bags in most stores. That way I can pull out a bag and make a serving batch quickly with no waste. (you could do one cup instead)
