BACK ON TRACK

Summertime brings vacations and the strong possibility of overindulging while we are enjoying ourselves. If this occurs, as soon as you are home again, get back into your routine. Even if there has been some weight gain, start tracking that food and exercising again!

Thomas Bagel Thins

Delicious! Half the size of a normal bagel, same taste. Great for lunch sandwiches or my favorite, breakfast sandwiches! Only 110 calories and 1 gram of fat per serving, plain, whole wheat and the everything bagel.

FOLEX FOR CARPET STAINS

Folex is in a white bottle with purple writing and has a spray trigger. If you have an old food stain, spray some directly onto the stain and rub with your finger or sponge. I have seen it work on 2 month old chocolate stain that was dried into the carpet after using another product. It is a little slice of carpet heaven in a bottle. Works even faster mixed with hot water....

Changing Tastes

If you gradually change the way you eat, you will gradually change your tastes for foods. Don't eliminate something completely at once--cut back on it and eventually you won't have the desire for it as much as you did.

defining priorities

Since one trigger of over-eating or mindless eating is stress, find ways to reduce stress. For me, one way has been to simplify my life, know what is most important to me and devote my time to those pursuits. As I find I have more time, I can incorporate more, but for now, I need to stay pretty basic. For me, my priorities are ME (my studies and my health) and my family. When I feel more balanced I'd like to get back into some of my other interests.

Life goes on

I have learned that life goes on and we make it what it is by our actions and attitude. We cannot stop or reverse time even though at times we would like to, so let it go and move on. One step at a time.

Brownie Binges

Since I just can't say no to brownies, and I can't bake just one (let me know if you can) I freeze them so that I have them if a craving is too great, but I don't eat them just because they are there. emoticon

Start Today

You can put it off, but six months or a year will pass before you know it and you'll look back and think, "Wow, if only I'd started with baby steps back then, I'd BE at my goal weight by now!"
