Lifting heavier weights, fewer reps, do compound exercises. This doesn't bulk me up at all. It produced far better and faster results than running, swimming, pilates, yoga, or dancing. I still do all that too. Also, I don't need to spend more than 60 to 90 mins at the gym to see great results. I do this first thing in the morning and get it out of the way. It's a level of exercise that is very doable. I eat sensibly and don't deprive myself of anything I want to eat. I just don't overeat. Being deprived is a horrible feeling.

Treat your run like a dance party. Dance party! Also, if it hurts when you do that, don't do that.

Don't diet. Learn everything you can about intuitive eating. And drink lots of water!

1) Get your exercise out of the way early so you feel that you've accomplished something that day! 2) Everything in moderation 3) Eat slowly so your brain will notice when your belly is fully 4) Crash dieting and restrictive diets rarely work and are difficult to maintain -- Make changes that you can see yourself keeping up for life.

Yes, no-one ever regrets working out... but KNOW when to stop once you've started!! Ugh, I'm in pain today...

I've often said the same as hippiegirl posted: "No one ever regrets working out." I am hugely regretful the day after I decided I needed to lay on the couch instead of working out. I'd rather not deal with that baggage.

Shop the perimeter of the grocery store because that is where the fresh unprocessed foods are!

Eat when you're hungry, stop when you're content (not full). Food = energy. Fiber is awesome.

Don't stress about the food when eating out - at the very least you can always have a salad.

Get enough sleep. Without that, all your other good acts start off with a handicap.

Suck your stomach in when you're waiting in line. It tightens your abs and doesn't take up any time.

I also use Hippiecowgirl's quote for motivation! It works most of the time! :) As for healthy eating, I read a quote like this in a magazine once: "Add 1 fruit or vegetable to every meal and you are instantly more healthy."
