SOCK DUSTERS

Useful dusters! I use unmatched socks for dusting the house. I spray a little dusting spray on the sock turned inside out and start dusting. If it gets really dirty, I turning and finish up. They are also great for washing cars!

Measurments

Don't forget to measure your body. Muscle weighs more than fat so even though you may not be losing pounds you could be losing inches. I find that losing inches is just as exciting as losing pounds. Either way you are healthier!

Nutrition tracker

It's hard to always find the motivation to log meals into the tracker but what helps me out a lot is as soon as I'm done grocery shopping, I add all of the items I bought into the tracker and save it in my favorites. That way, when I'm eating it later in the week, it's a breeze to do.

V8 in the afternoon

Have a glass or two of V8 in the afternoon instead of a coffee or diet pop. It will fill you with some fiber and you will be getting at least a serving of vegetables depending on how much you drink.

Nailpolish remover

Instead of using cotton balls use an old dryer sheet. It's so much more effective & doesn't leave any little strings from the cotton.

Simplify

When putting your kids laundry away put together their outfits for the next week (or so) and put in a spot designated for them. So with younger kids you can just grab and dress them and older kids know where and what they need to put on.
