Cheat Day?!

Everybody here has probably tried having a cheat day, a day where you're free to indulge (hopefully still in moderation). Of course there have been concerns about how healthy- and if cheat days are even healthy- they are. I don't agree with cheat days, I personally cannot handle doing them. But I reccomend that if you can handle having a cheat day, that you do it during the week!

Put That Exercise On "PAUSE"--You Heard me!

When I decide to do a chore, read a bit, watch tv, or anything else, I pop in my exercise dvd/video for the day. Whenever I need a break, I turn it on and work out as hard as I can for up to ten minutes. I then put the dv/video on "pause" and go back to whatever it was I was involved in. Doing short spurts of intensive exercising really pushes my body. I am more inclined to push to the limit for ten minutes, rather than complete a dvd/tape in one sitting I garner maximum calorie range in a short

Take a sip of water between each bite

I find that taking a sip of water after each bite of food helps me to slow down when I eat. In addition to increasing my water intake, It allows my brain to catch up to my stomach and recognize when I am full. This simple act prevents me from overeating at meals.

Get a more active job

I have had many desk jobs where I sit at a desk most of the day without much activity. My secret was to get a more active job where so that I can get in my exercise as a work. I don't really like sitting at a desk all day anyway.

Jury Duty

When I was on jury duty, I used the lunch break to eat, then walk around the courthouse block 4 times. I also used the bathroom stall to do wall pushups, standing ab twists/air punches, squats, lunges, knee raises, and tricep dips (it helps to use the handicap bathroom if available, for more space and the bar for tricep dips.)
