My husband came up with this idea. Everytime I feel like reaching for food that isn't healthy or don't feel like working out, I have two choices: early death or LIFE! His idea: Simply say outloud (or in your head if others are around): "I CHOOSE LIFE!!" When you look at it that way, a can of pop, a donut at work, or a thick slice of pizza just don't have the same appeal they used to. Or when I don't feel like pushing for a 10 on my last minutes of my cardio, I yell out (when the gym is empty, which is everyday): "I CHOOSE LIFE!!" as many times as it takes to get me to finish the final push.

- Feel free to add on to this list ...
