Healthy Tips

There are several healthy habits that have contributed to my weight loss.

I thought I’d share a few.

1. I try to drink (2) 8 oz glasses of Water with each meal. I keep a cup with me the rest of the day and sip on it constantly. If it is hard for you to get all of your water in, try keeping a pitcher of water in the fridge with a slice of lemon in it. Sometimes when things look more appealing, you’re more apt to go for it.

2. Be aware of your trigger foods, and if they present a problem for you, then do NOT keep them in your house. If you live with other people that enjoy your trigger foods, simply ask them to keep them in a place where they are not visible to you!

3. I keep the fridge stocked with healthy snacks, and I go there first. I try to avoid the pantry. You might likely find chips, crackers, cookies and packaged snacks there. I do best when I avoid those snacks. I like to enjoy those at someone else’s house. 

4. I keep most fruits and veggies in the proper compartments in the fridge, but if I keep visible the fruits and veggies that I plan to snack on over the next few days, I’m more apt to eat them, and less apt to end up throwing them out!

5. Try to take an hour or so each week to meal plan. I feel less stressed about “What’s for Dinner?” when I take a little time each week to plan. You are also less likely to eat out of convenience and make a poor food choice if you already know what you are going to eat. 

6. When you’re grilling up some chicken breast or turkey burgers, or whatever you’re grilling that will freeze well, throw extra on the grill, then freeze them! This has come in so handy on nights when things don’t go as planned. And as much planning as we try to do, these nights tend to happen often. I also like to cook up some chicken, shred it, and freeze for easy taco dinners, or pizza night. I can also throw together a great soup with a little stock, some veggies and my pre-cooked chicken.

7. Now that I have discovered that I DO like Quinoa if I cook it in Chicken broth, I like to keep a bowl of that in the fridge to toss in a salad, or a soup, or into another side dish!

 

Those are just a few of the things that I can think of that have been really helpful for me in my journey to a Healthier Me! As I think of more, I’ll be sure to add them!

  6. Hello, Julie!

    Stumbled upon your website through Pinterest. I just began WW last Wednesday, so finding you and your site is right on time for me! Your sharing here is really great (!) and will be a great motivational tool for me to incorporate with everything else I have to do to stay on track with the WW program. THANK YOU! I, too, have thought about, and am interested in being a leader. Well, this go ’round with WW isn’t my first rodeo, let’s just say! I had fantastic success with WW years ago and am looking forward to a great success (and a permanent one!) again. GOOD LUCK with your endeavor to lead!

    I look forward to reading more of you!

    Best Regards,
    Susan P!
