get a dog - a high-energy, smart one

seriously - get a dog along the lines of a border collie or standard poodle - the einsteins of the canine world.
you MUST walk them twice a day - such high-energy dogs require a minimum 45min walk a day PLUS they need exercise (walking is *so* not "exercise" for these breeds!) and then they need jobs - that means you need to train them.

you'll be moving and shaking in spite of yourself!

portioning out meat for ease

When I come home from the grocery store with meat I package it as soon as I get home. If it is ground meat I portion it into 1oz meatballs (using my scale) for recipe usage and portion control that way I know that I am getting the right amount and am less likely to ever eat, it's also easier to defrost. My chicken I portion to about 5 oz per package. I have noticed that I don't need to eat as much meat as I thought I did.

Reaching my Water intake goal

Crystal light, i know its 5 calories for one servings, but if it means I'll meat my water intake by using 2 or 3 a day ill scrape off calories somewhere else. I buy the ones for a one serving size bottle and keep a bunch in my purse, at my desk, in my car, and i always order water if and when i go out and mix it in. And then i use the bigger portion one to use in a water bottle at home in my fridge so when im thirsty i drink that instead. Did i add its low cost also!

GNC Pro PerformanceŽ AMP AMP 100% Whey Protein- Chocolate

After Gastric bypass, I had to figure out ways to get protein other than meat, being I really don't like meat. LOL I have tried so many protein powders, its not even funny! Most I can handle, but don't love, this one I LOVE! With only 130 calories, 2 grams of fat, 8 carbs, 3 fiber, only 2 grams of sugar, and 20 grams of protein, its a wonderful way to get that extra protein boost so many need. I love how little sugar it has, and the taste is very good. emoticon emoticon

Is Canned Salmon Better For You?

Canned salmon is packed with the bones in it and can actually be better because the bones provide calcium for YOUR bones and teeth. When canning they also remove some of the fat. Maybe this is a healthier choice.
