Drink Water While Eating To comsume less Calories.

My grandmother who i grew up with used to tell me eat your food 1st then drink. I'm sure this makes a lot of sense and can be scientifically proven. However, I've found that sipping water between bites of food made me full faster and as a result i consumed less calories.

veggies and dip

A few days ago I bought precut veggies, (only because they were on sale). I made a light dip last night, and this morning was able to put some into a smaller container portion out veggies and go. I also grabbed a V8 low sodium to help get the veggies my body is craving!

Fresh Smelling Rooms

Now that it is getting time to run the air conditioner I install a clean filter and lay a favorite smelling dryer sheet on top. It will take a day or two but you will start noticing the smell every time you run the ac. When you don't smell it it's time to put in a new one.

Chew gum

to avoid nibbling and munching during cooking, I pop in a piece of gum. The gum is usually done just about the same time as dinner.

Role Model & Roll Unmodel

Post a role model photo on your fridge, yourself as you desire or someone you admire. Also, post a roll unmodel, someone you do not want to look like. Scare yourself straight.

Doing Sit-Ups (Crunches) Will Save Your Back!

Not only will abdominal exercises strengthen your bones and the muscles of the back, but they'll also strengthen your entire midsection - which takes weight and pressure off your back. So add crunches to your routine as well as leg lifts and bent-over back rows. (You: The Owner's Manual)

Spread my calories throughout the day

We're all different, but for me, the hardest time to control my eating -- both what I eat as well as portion control -- is after work if I skimped on breakfast and/or lunch. By tracking, I have learned that I need to evenly spread my calories throughout the day.
