So, my new addiction is sushi rolls. Most are 200 calories or under and they are so yummy. At Wegman's I discovered the "Skinny" California roll. It is rolled with a rice noodle instead of rice so its only 100 calories a roll. "100 calories"!!! I eat two of them for dinner and its filling and only 200 calories for the whole meal. If you like sushi, you will loves these! Shhh, don't tell anyone my secret....

I work from home, so I have to be sitting at least 8 hours a day in front of the computer. I have found several short songs with a very quick beat that work well when I have a moment to hope up and walk, sidesteps, or jog in place. I turn and look out the window or door to refocus my eyes. I sit back down feeling refreshed.

Increase your food volume, be more satisfied & lose weight
Choose foods that have a high water content (fruits, vegetables, low-fat milk, cooked grains, lean meats, poultry, fish, beans) to increase satisfaction.
My favorite example is to compare two sandwiches, one with 4-5 oz sliced turkey and 1 oz cheese; one with 2-3 oz sliced turkey, a sliced tomato, 1 cup of fresh spinach, and 1 cup of sprouts. The sandwich with less protein and filled with veggies has less calories, more volume and will be more satisfying. Enjoy!
A great book to read on this subject is "The Volumetrics Weight Control Plan: Feel Full on Fewer Calories" by Barbara Rolls and Robert A Barnett (2000)
Visualizing goals is a great way to start achieving them. I write all my goals down on separate pieces of paper on a notebook with space to write my goals and what I achieved...When you look back and see how much you were able to do it's great motivation to keep going!
If you're computer savvy you can even make an excell spread sheet to track your goals and keep your activity rolling!
