Do you balance your checkbook?

You should be treating your calories like cash in the bank. Unfortunately we dont get an immediate overdraw fee or else believe me.... We would not be going over our calories so frequently. I have been tracking every morsel on livestrong and even eating healthy (not crazy and I dont diet) and I cannot believe how fast 1310 calories go. Between my two supplement shakes and vitamins that take up 110 calories I am left with 1200 calories to get me from 8 am to 10pm. I seriously am a huge advocate for something like a fitbook or
Pay attn to those calories no matter what you eat and you can watch the scale go down.

A nightly routine can set you up for success.

I know for myself if I go into something with a plan, I am a lot more likely to finish and succeed. I get a daily email from Jonathan at No Excuses Workout and I love his "3 nightly routines to set you up for fitness and weight loss success".

1. Schedule your workout. actually plan what you will do and at what time.

2. Plan your food and drinks. Prepare ahead what you can.

3. Get your workout clothes and/or workout bag ready the night before.
This is something so simple that can make a big difference. You have done one step in the workout process already, just finish with the actual workout. This is a great and easy,I truly think it will help whether you are going to the club, running outside or working out inside your home.

Morningstar! I love you.

So if you are a mom trying to get in shape, feed your family quickly and are now fearful of most meats (or not), I totally suggest Morningstar mealstarters, sausage, chicken burgers etc.....
I just tried the meat crumbles tonight in a quesadilla and they were AWESOME!
I am very interested in buying my meat/poultry from an organic farm this summer but for now this is going to work awesome!

I know you'll (who is you?, dont think anyone will read this, lol.) stay tuned to find out which ones i choose. So anyway, Im back.
