Ask... Be Heard

When eating out, ask how the food is prepared. I'm not afraid to ask for substitutions, even when they say no substitutions. Pick out two or three dishes before hand so you have an alternative. I've had little problem getting what I want prepared how I need it prepared.

wear running shoes

Put on your running shoes when you are doing housecleaning. This always makes me feel like doing things faster, harder and with more stretching, squats lunges etc snuck into my cleaning.

save dollars

I work at a cash register and whenever I come in for the day and see dollar coins, I buy them from the store. I don't spend them. They go home with all my other change.
I won't cash them in until I am desperate for bill money usually but, I am saving for next year's honeymoon this time!

I've Been Telling ALL My Friends

I had NO IDEA what I was putting in my body. I'm still trying to figure out how to get my daily "ums" (calcium, potassium, magnesium). I love the nutrition tracker - that's what I brag about!

Sugar- 4 grams a serving or less

When shopping the stores on the inner parameters, notice the sugar content on labels. Aim for 4 grams or less per serving. This awareness will help you stay the course on choosing cleaner foods with less imitation flavorings and strange unnatural ingredients. It's an eye opener for sure.

No Cash No Problem

I tend to not carry any cash with me, I find when I have that $5 or $10 in my pocket everything seems easy to purchase. If I don't carry the cash I won't spend it. I find it stops me from going to vending machines as well
