I'll only have one! I'll just check my e-mails...I'll just watch one show! I'll just buy one pair, but 2 shoe boxes later...(okay 3)! Exercise is the same way for me...if I say " just 15 minutes"... I always complete my goal time of an hour! Now if I can just conquer this shoe thing!!!

Secret To Listening!

Don't just listen to what is said; listen to what is not said. Foor example: If I said, "It might rain today". What didn't I say? "Maybe it won't". God Bless, Vic.

Water

Always be sure to drink plenty of water while eating. Not only is it good for you, but it will make you feel full faster. I put my fork down between every bite and take a drink of water; it's made a huge difference!

Park farther away

I work full time and find it difficult to get all of the walking in that I want to do every day. One thing I've learned to do is to park farther and farther away in the parking lot of my building at work. It forces me to walk in the morning and the evenings and it also forces me to be on time.

Get a Pedometer

Do not underestimate the power of 10,000 steps a day. A pedometer is incredibly motivating. I won't go to bed unless I have reached the 10,000 step minimum. I am actually in constant competition with myself to see how many steps I can add by a given time each day.

Vacation Fund

When I make a plan to take a trip I start saving all the $1 bills I get in change at the store. I put them in an envelope and save them until it's time to go. I also empty the change out of the bottom of my purse & in my car once a week to a special jar and we take that to the bank cash in.

Laying Out Clothes the Night Before

I always select the clothes I'm going to wear the next day and set them out on my bathroom counter the night before. I never have to wonder (during a stressful morning!) what's clean, what matches, etc.
