Going to bed earlier is one of the first steps to success for me. If I go to bed an hour earlier then I am not hitting the snooze button in the morning, I can get up and have breakfast not be rushed, and get in morning exersises. To me that is better than watching another hour of re-runs on tv.
I don't like fish due to my early childhood, but am learning it's necessary for my health and weight loss. I don't know how to pick quality fish, properly prepare it, cook it, and then know it's done, plus it stinks the house so badly. SO, whenever I eat out, I order fish - just not fried. The restaurant chef has been trained in food preparation and the odor stays there. I just eat and reap the results.
My family owns a vacation home on a recreation lake. We spent our summers there since I was a child. My father would throw out 4 fishing lines before leaving for work in the morning. EVERY NIGHT we ate cat fish. I swore if I lived through childhood, I'd never eat fish again. Now I'm learning to!
Using the SparkPoints is a very good tool, UNLESS you cheat to get them! I nearly fell into that habit, as I am one of those who really wants my points each day! However, it dawned on me that I am the only one I'm cheating when I say I've read things I haven't read, say I've done things I haven't done,
and so on! Since making this decision early on, I am amazed at the health knowledge I have gained by actually reading the health and nutrition tips! Sometimes, I already knew about health news before it was broadcast! Yes, get your SparkPoints for REAL! you won't regret it!
