STICK-WITH-IT TIPS




It is hard to start a NEW LIFE CHANGE when it comes to DIET and WORKING OUT....
here are some things that might help....

  • Don't deny yourself - If you like ice cream......eat some....either have a smaller amount than you usually have....or find a healthier substitute......I love DRYERS slow churn....it has 1/2 the calories....and takes GREAT...


  • CHOOSE wisely - Don't feel up on empty calories - Candy has empty calories...but exchange it for a ORGANIC apple, string cheese (did you know that Sonic has string cheese....can't say you can't get a quick snack)


  • EAT - Food is Fuel for your body....you got to eat....watch your portions....make a fist.....that should be a serving size.....You should have a serving of - COMPLEX CARBS, PROTEIN, FRUIT AND VEGGIES..... 5-6 times a day.....that sounds like a lot...but it works....If you can't have a meal...try a ZONE or POWERBAR....


  • LIVE-IN the MOMENT - Don't worry about tomorrow or the future...just worry about today


  • DINE-IN - Cook at home - you eliminate lots of butter and you can control your portions...and if you can't..... opt for slimming options....."Hold the mayo"....order fruit or yogurt instead of french fries....don't pour on the salad dressing....just dip your fork in the dressing and then get your salad on the fork....


  • DON'T just use the scale as your SCALE - Use how you feel, how your clothes are fitting, and just your overall health for your measurement if you don't see your weight changing on the scale.


  • MONITOR YOURSELF REGULARLY - Some people weigh every week....just to keep on track


  • STOP MINDLESS EATING - Eat just when you are sitting down - DON'T GRAZE


  • SET an EXERCISE MINIMUM - I just read about this one....but I LIKE IT - When you start, tell yourself, no matter what, I had to exercise for at least 20 minutes a day, four days a week. (or whatever makes it work with you) Once you meet that goal, you will probably want to do more.


  • KEEP A WELL STOCKED KITCHEN - With healthy snacks such as WHEAT BREAD (if you don't want to use the ESEKIAL bread, then make sure that you find wheat bread that doesn't use the word "ENRICHED" in the ingredients) YOGURT, GRANOLA BARS, PROTEIN BARS, SUGAR-FREE PUDDING, STRING CHEESE, and NUTS


  • FIND A PARTNER - Whether it is a friend or spouse, it makes it easier to accomplish your goals if you have someone to hold you accountable. I know since Toby has started eating better, it sure makes me keep to my guns. If you don't have a partner....consider this blog and myself your partner.....I will make you accountable....


Do you have anything that helps you STICK WITH IT?

I have a picture of myself when I was about 50 pounds heavier and when I start to veer off course, I look at that picture and know I never want to look that way again.
