Giveaway: Digital Kitchen Scale & Nutritional Consultation

March 13, 2012

Staying healthy is all about staying motivated, taking the time to make healthy decisions. Best way to do that? An online tracker. SlimKicker is all about keeping you motivated to make healthy decisions by rewarding you with the chance to win prizes just by staying healthy. They use virtual coaching and social media to keep you motivated. Best way to make healthy decisions? Fill yourself with information and tools to make those choices.

 

A few of my favorite tools:

Planning on Sundays- I usually grocery shop on the weekends and spend an hour prepping my lunches. I cut up fruit, veggies, dish out hummus or dips, make sure I have enough snacks for at work, and think about what I will make that week. The more I prep the better I eat all week. Sunday afternoons my fridge is usually pretty full of containers and items ready to grab for my lunch box.

 

Schedule Your Workouts- I put Monday, Wednesday and Friday workouts at 6am on my calendar. Yes it can be hard to get up and get going but I know how much better I will feel after a workout. I have a lot more energy during the day too!

 

Talk to Someone- If you are having a hard time with choices, talk to a Nutritional Consultant. SlimKicker is giving away an email session.

 

Weigh Your Food- Yes it seems extreme but if you are really dedicated it can help you really know everything you are eating.  I use my scale in baking or very complex recipes to make sure I have everything measured accurately because I want it to turn out! One of my favorite foodies, Alton Brown, is a big believer in weighing everything. My scale comes in handy for some of my great-grandma’s recipes that were translated from Czech and are in grams. You can clearly see how many grams are there versus 1/2 cup.

    I stay motivated by others around me. Seeing them eat right and exercise motivates me to do the same as well. It helps to have friends who understand what you are going through to help support you.

    A printed photo from a recent vacation of me in a swimsuit keeps me motivated. Still not quite ready for that bikini… :)

  3. Shari says:

    Well, I need some extra motivation right about now…but what tends to help keep me motivated is to think about how good I’ll feel while traveling the world. Honestly, 17 hours on an airplane sucks, but it sucks a whole heck of a lot more if you’re fat!

    I would love a scale and consultation. As I try to do more baking I’m seeing a huge difference between weighed measures and “scooped” measures. I stay motivated to make healthy choices by thinking how physically bad I feel if I don’t. Not gonna lie though, being pregnant has made it hard not to give in to my sweet tooth lately :-/

    This is awesome, as someone with colitis, I have thought about going to a nutritionist to solve some of my run issues…

    I stay motivated a number of ways, mostly I want to keep improving, and I want to be very active in my older years… it keeps m e going

    I stay motivated by surrounding myself with others who have the same type of goals! i feed off of their success as well as my own! Also, my kids tend to keep me motivated, I want to be able to be healthy and active so I can keep up with them and be the best mom I can! :)

  7. i stay motivated by remembering the big picture and reminding myself of my goals!

    healthy living blogs & other fitfluential members’ blogs help too!

    I motivate myself to make healthy choices much the same way as you. I keep lots of healthy choices on hand, meal plan, and pack my lunch and snacks daily. When I don’t have to pick something healthy from a cafe or restaurant because I packed a healthy lunch, it’s really so much easier to be healhy.

    Try to stay motivated by how I feel thoughout the day – and realizing that I never regret going for a run or to a class. You can stay motivated to work out by choosing things you really enjoy – like a yoga class- I find a class that I love the teacher and practice and truly enjoy being in the moment. I am (oddly) motivated to work out prior to work – so I can enjoy my “afterwork” activities more!

  10. Misty T. says:

    I stay motivated by using myfitnesspal.com and thinking about the fantastic successes my friends are experiencing.

  11. I motivate myself by thinking of how I feel after exercising and from eating healthy. I also have found reading healthy living blogs really motivational!

  12. Beth says:

    I stay motivated by reading healthy living blogs :)

    I stay motivated by signing up for races to work towards! I make short term and long term goals to meet! Also, I’m going to school for Nutrition so it helps that I surround myself around healthy, motivated people!!!!
