FMM: Weight-Loss Tips
- Drink water, water, water. I have noticed a big difference in how I feel since giving up soft drinks. I, honestly, get a little tired of water sometimes though - that's when the little Crystal Light packets save me!
- Track/log what you eat. This is huge for me. I don't think it matters what method you use to track/log your food, but do it. It is interesting to see what different foods do to your mood, energy level, weight loss, etc.
- Make exercise an appointment on your calendar. All of my fitness activities and exercise are on my calendar on my computer at work and this syncs to my iPhone. The appointments are marked as private so that others at work that have access to see my calendar can't really see what I am doing, but they know not to try to schedule during those times (i.e., lunch hour 3 days a week for short runs, after 4:30-ish all other days of the week, etc.)
- Pack food to take to work. I pack my breakfast, lunch, and two snacks for nearly every single workday. I also set a little "rule" for myself - If I didn't pack it, I don't eat it. This is especially helpful during the holiday cookies, lunches, etc.
I am always looking for tips and tricks to help me. I appreciate all the advice that I have gotten from others in the past and know that it has really been a huge benefit.
