Breakfast on Cedar Lane

Try to fix meals ahead of time. This will save you time for friends and other things I like to make double the portion of food that way you have food for two different nights. You could make dinners and freeze them too.

Tricking your tongue!

I learned that when I crave sugar, the best thing I can do is drink black coffee! Bitter is the opposite of sweet. ( and I truly enjoy black coffee). When I do this, my sugar craving goes away completely! Try it!

To stay consistent, tell yourself that you need to JUST DO IT! It will become a habit or a pleasure even!

Play in the dirt!

Not only will a garden let you enjoy fresh vegetables without all those pesticides (not to mention they haven't made a 3000 mile trip to your table). You can also freeze and can to enjoy these wonderful veggies all year long!
All that playing in the dirt is a great workout too!

Confidence

If you are comfortable with yourself it doesn't matter how big or small you are, confidence is key. It is sexy, it makes you the person people want to go to.

Eat more to lose more!

I was eating near the bottom of my range, and nothing was happening! I was cycling between 187 and 188 for 2 to 3 weeks. So I started reading a couple of articles and blogs on eating more to lose weight. I started eating towards the upper end, and at today's weigh-in I broke through the plateau!!!

Menu Planning

Planning a menu a month in advance is a great way to keep your kitchen and grocery list organized. If you are on grocery budget, this is a great way to stay within that budget, since you already know what you will be eating through the month.

Be a picky eater.

Don't eat things you don't like just to be nice. Eat good, fresh food in smaller portions.

Always brush you teeth after you eat

I know it's obvious, but this is another reason to avoid food when you can't eat. My teeth are clean, I don't wanna dirt them again.
