Small Rewards

If you're like me I enjoy a treat after dinner or a healthy dessert. If you have been really good all day you must reward yourself for a job well done. I look for high quality dark chocolate on sale, my favorite place is Whole Foods. I keep it out of sight and every day break off a small piece. Yum!

Bath time!

Whenever I get the urge just to EAT for that sake of EATING (not hunger, just appetite), I take a hot bath with a good book to distract me. Soon you get so wrapped up in the book you forget about the craving! You also get to check out all those awesome muscles you've been working so hard to build!

Not really mine

Last night, a member posted to my blog and I had to pass along the secret she gave me. If you ever get hit with a food craving, just think to yourself that that particular food doesn't own you. You are your own person. For someone like me this is great advice as I'm proud of being my own person.

Zero Calorie Sweet Pickles

I love sweet pickles on my sandwiches but can't afford the calories. Yesterday, I found that Mt. Olive makes no sugar added ZERO calorie bread & butter pickles as well as sweet jerkins. I put them on my subway sandwich last night when I went out & they were great.

Use smaller dinnerware

We decided to buy smaller dinnerware in order to help control our portions. We use 8" diametre plates for most of our meals, but because the plate is filled we don't feel like we are doing without. It's made a big difference, especially for meals like pasta.

Leave the Snack bag and Take the Bowl!

You will always eat too much of a snack if you just eat from the bag or box. Take a bowl, measure out the serving size and then put that bag/box away! Eat from the bowl and you won't be packing on extra calories/fat without knowing it.

Spice up your life!

Adding spice to your food (hot chili flakes, cinnamon, and chipotle powder for example) is a great way to keep up your metabolism and add flavor without adding fat or extra salt!
