Plan ahead for your lunches. This is a critical step in maintaining a healthy diet. Don't leave it to chance. If you do, you'll be much more susceptible to fall into old habits and reach for something unhealthy. The next time you go to the supermarket, make a list and buy specific ingredients for your lunchtime meals. Make sure you prepare them ahead of time. It is important that they are convenient, nutritious, and delicious!

Give yourself a break! An occasional indulgence in a high-calorie treat won't negate all of your hard work. It's ok to diverge and "cheat" every now and then. Just make it the exception and not the rule! Do not give that treat so much power. Instead of focusing on guilt or feeling bad about yourself, just get back on track by trying to fit a little extra exercise in over the next few days.

Find ways to sneak extra movement into your day. This type of movement doesn't need to be fast paced or totally exhausting. Just make an effort to move your body more than you normally do. For example, walk wherever you can. Take the stairs instead of taking the elevator or escalator. Or instead of working in a chair, try standing at your desk. You'll notice that just standing up to break up your periods of sitting down will boost your energy levels. Lastly, leave a one word note on your desk of "move." This will give you the reminder you need to keep moving throughout your day.
