Just breathe

Sometimes things get to be too much, A friend suggested this and it works. Just Breathe. You can do this right how, no matter how stressed you are feeling.
Just
Breathe.

Protein Up

Meet your daily requirement of protein! It seems I never have trouble meeting fat and carb requirements but protein is elusive. I bought protein powder and enjoy protein smoothies with frozen fruit and skim yogurt after the gym!

Make appointments with yourself for execise

Whether I have got way off track or suddenly realised I just let a few weeks of no focused fitness activity pass, I find that I need to check my calender and block out specific time with specific goals to aim for.

I drink water when I cook

I always have my water with me when I cook. If I feel the urge to "nibble" I drink water. This really fills me up and I don't eat as much at meal time!!

Watch your back!

Be VERY careful with your back when making basic movements - bending down excessively can be quite hazardous! Also, when picking up items, do not use your back for momentum (don't ask me how I know this.....)

secret to learning how to drink 8 glasses of water a day

start by drinking 1 glass a day with some lemon or orange juice in it. Do for about a month. Work up to 2 glasses for another month and gradually increase. It took me 6 months. Then for more I took a year to add 2 more glasses for 10 glasses a day. You can stick with 8.

Smelly vacuum

To keep your vacuum smelling fresh and not spreading stale, smelly air around your room, spritz your vacuum filter with an air freshener or a few drops of fragrant oils -- works great and will last a few weeks.
