Friday's thought... Here are some tips to help avoid gaining weight this weekend:
1) Don't use the weekend as your excuse to binge or eat badly
2) Pump up your activity level to help balance out extra calories
3) Do activities with family/friends that aren't connected to food
4) Make your weigh in day Monday to keep you accountable
5) Be the designated driver at any weekend parties so you don't add huge calories from alcohol.

Thursday’s thought… A 15 minute stroll is better than nothing, but don't expect to see dramatic weight loss results. You've got to kick it up a notch and do at least 30 minutes a day of heart-pumping exercise. If you want to burn calories and fat then include running, spin classes, interval training, hiking, or circuit training in your regular exercise regime. Annette :-) ... See MoreSee Less

Tuesday’s thought… Skipping breakfast may seem like a great way to save calories, but your body will actually hold onto fat because it thinks it's being starved. People who regularly eat breakfast lose more weight. So make sure to eat breakfast each morning to jump-start your metabolism. Annette :-) ... See MoreSee Less

Monday’s thought… Don’t deliberately skip meals thinking that this will help you lose weight quickly. In fact, it can do the opposite! Skipping meals can mess up your metabolism and lead to binging later in the day due to lack of food. Forget quick fixes, this is about having a healthy lifestyle. Annette :-) ... See MoreSee Less
