500 a day

Saturday, January 08, 2011

Like anyone who has been at it for a while, I have a few healthy habits already in place. So usually when I read an online article titled "Simple ways to cut 500 Calories" I don't get much out of it as I am already doing most of the suggestions. I have attached a link that actually has given me a few new ideas or reminded me of some things that I have not been doing. Some ideas are pretty basic for veteran Sparkers. We have become pretty good at swapping out the foods we eat for their healthier versions and know that drinking water instead of pop will save lots of calories. But this article has a few gems in it. So instead of going on, and on, and on - which I am prone to do - I will give you the link and let you decide if there is anything of merit to be had.

    Thank you for posting this link Maggie. I love when people post things like this. I can't read it all right now but will go back to it later today to see what else I can find. The article, as usual, started me looking for other things on the page. I ended up researching 400 calorie dinners on the net. I found some nice links which I will share in a blog soon.

    You're right, most of it we already know, but it doesn't hurt to read it again and look at it in a different way.

    Thanks, Maggie for sharing this link. Found a few things rather interesting.....running errands and grocery shopping.............burns 500 calories...seriously?? Who knew?
Or am I looking at this as another excuse for not having to exercise on shopping day?
Hope you have a great day. emoticon
