Talking to my self?!?

Hi what I've been doing every day is to tell my self " Hey I've already lost this weight" or " I'm feeling the weight going and I'm looking better already" and other similar comments. I'm speaking POSITIVE over my self and that keeps me going. I feel the weight is already gone!!!

Keeping Weeds Down

I put newspapers between my rows in my garden and cover then lightly with dirt- It keeps the weeds down and I don't have to use chemicals to control weeds. This fall, I just till my garden and the newspapers are compost for the garden.

I forgive myself for not being perfect

When I don't reach a goal, I try to understand why. Then, rather than beating myself up over my "failure", I start again at the next meal, or opportunity for exercise. It's all about loving myself & resetting my focus. Punishing myself if I "fail" only leads to frustration & throwing in the towel.

Descaling your kettle.

Simple and easy way to descale and stop scale build up in your kettle. Put 6 - 10 glass marbles in your kettle . The boiling action bounces the marbles around and breaks up the scaling.
I have a electric kettle 32 yrs and since the day I bought it added the marbles and result descaled automatically

Fast Food

When ordering fast food don't order fat or sugar laden sides. You can ruin a healthy saldwich or salad by adding a soft drink or french fries.
