This is no secret, but is a habit I am starting to form. Today in fact I didn't order the Burger and Fries I started too, but switched to a baked potato & steamed broccoli. While grocery shopping I am spending more time in the produce section looking at the items thinking about ways to incorporate ...

40 is just a number!!!

I was 19 and full of spunk. I enlisted in the USMC, and spent the next 5 years doing things most young women never do. I enjoyed every minute of it, even the minutes I wasn't supposed to enjoy. I was in the best shape of my life.

Detox Drink Removed My Cravings for Carbs and Sweets

I was having such a horrible time getting back to where I once was with my healthier eating habits after I started to reintroduce my old bad eating habits.

Consistency will Pay Off!

I used to have such an "all or nothing" approach. I set myself standards of lots of exercise and healthy eating which was a good plan for the most part. However, I ran into problems when I "fell off the wagon" - when I missed a day of exercise or ate that extra cookie. I simply said - "whatever" ...

Just log it.

Even if you go way over your calories, log it. I have logged half a red velvet cake, a whole bag of Hershey's kisses, and an entire pizza.
