Still enjoy wine with less guilt

I bought seltzer water and I love sauvignon blanc. I've begun filling my glass half way with zelzer water, adding ice cubes then the wine - totally has cut down on my wine intake and I still feel like I'm indulging

relaxation

I take 15 minutes a night to myself. I lock the bathroom door and light a lavender candle, fill the tub with hot water. Anyone brave enough to knock on the door will hear about it. This has become an every night thing with me. It takes the stress out of the day and makes me a nicer person over all.

Go through each tab! One each day and explore the possibilities!

I have found that if I go through a new (portal) tab option, screen or button on the web-page (which ever page I am on) I find new and helpful bites of mental stimulus! Health ideas, medical knowledge, recipes, testimonies, quizzes... I can't stop finding something new! The Spark People site is like a buffet that keeps having the food changed out with something new that can do nothing but add to my success! I keep learning something new that will definitely help me get there sooner than later!

If you don't like the taste of water

Add slices of frozen fruit to your water for a better taste. I buy a bag of mixed fruit but you can add almost any fruit. Strawberries, watermelon, raspberries, etc. It taste better than some of those taste additives from the store, and you get your fruit serving! I will mix up to a cup of fruit into my days worth of water and drink throughout the day.

A tip to track your water intake...

I don't know about anyone else, but I forget how many cups of water I've had to drink because I drink from a water bottle...try putting 8 rubber bands around the bottle (if it's an 8oz bottle) and remove one each time you finish a full bottle & have to fill it back up.

Managing Holiday Splurges

My secret for holiday eating: I told myself I could go over no more than 2lbs gaining weight back for the holidays. I kept myself in check by still weighing myself everyday and when I splurged on cookies, cake or carbs, I did it moderately. I only had a small slice of cake or 2 cookies or a small helping of mac n cheese. I kept it to 2-3 small splurges per day and still exercised as well. I kept to my 2lb over goal and now I'm back on track! emoticon

2013

Write the year "2013" on at least 10 of your checks. My mom taught me this trick years ago and now I no longer accidently write a check with the wrong year on it. emoticon

Whose water bottle is this?

I happily now have my whole family drinking PLAIN water {though we used to LOVE Propel!} and with that accomplishment comes everyone's water bottle and no identification! So, we put our first initial or both intials on the cap and it solves the problem! Plus if someone is sick, I know WHICH water bottle is mine!
