Carry a healthy snack at all times

I always carry a protein bar in my purse. I choose Pure Protein because it's a little lower in calories than some, about 180 depending on flavor. Things do come up where we don't get to eat as we planned and when I have this it helps fill me up and keep my protein up until I can get a regular meal

Walking in the rain with your bathing suit on

I highly recommend walking in the rain with your bathing suit on...I have done it and it is fun! I was thinking next time...I should bring a bar of soap and kill two birds with one stone...I would not recommend walking in the rain if it is thundering or lightening though...walk on sparkers!

Pre-Logging Foods

When I want to eat something I probably shouldn't, I go ahead and log the food. After analyzing the fat/calories, I can decide whether it's worth it to me to eat it. If it is, I go ahead and eat a serving. If not, I can just delete that food from my day and move on.

Eat the European way

A great way to eat more slowly is to NOT pre-cut your food, but cut each bite as you're about to eat it. That takes much longer than pre-cutting and you give your body time to signal when you've had enough food.

Journaling...wi
th
Privacy Concerns

If you don't want to write in a journal because you are afraid someone will find it and read it (my fear), write down your thoughts and immediately shred the paper. You have still released your thoughts which is very therapeutic.

What has worked for me....save mad cash!

I'm paid weekly, my BF check is direct deposit...mine is not. Each week I take out "me tax" for example say your take home pay is $350...10% of that is $35. So, put that amount into your tin Now, really if you are strapped use a smaller percentage out but, make it per pay check no matter what.

Pessimist vs Optimist... who are you?

Here's a quote by Winston Churchill that helps me re-think tough situations.

"A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty".

Think about it!
