Slicing Garlic

I put a little oil on my fingers to keep the garlic from sticking to them and as you slice it keeps it from sticking to the knife too.

Natural Cleaning remedies

Since I have a 2 year old, I am always looking for ways to clean without having harsh chemicals around. I use Vinegar and water instead of Windex, Baking soda instead of Comet and now I came across this article.

Don't forget to wash your soap bottles too.

When cleaning your kitchen sink area, don't forget to clean your hand soap, dish soap and/or lotion bottles too. They can carry germs and putting them back on a clean sink kind of defeats the purpose. I use a bathroom antibacterial foam cleaner, spray them, rinse, then dry and germ free! :) I also throw my sponges in the dishwasher with every load.

Calculating Calories to lose weight

To calculate how many calories to eat daily in order to lose 2-3 pounds a week use the following equation: Multiply your weight (in pounds) by 12 and subtract 1,000. (Note: If you calculate a number thatís less than 1,200 calories, follow the 1,200-calorie plan. Eating less than that, itís hard to meet your daily nutrition requirements.) Recalculate as you lose.

Window Surf and Shop to avoid mindless munching

When I am tempted to snack or eat out of boredom not hunger, usually all night long, I get on a website or read a magazine full of clothes I dream of getting into and window shop. Before I know it the urge to snack has passed and I'm even motivated to get up and exercise instead sometimes.

Get up, Get Dressed, Get Moving!

Every Morning, first thing, even before my Coffee/Tea, and logging on SP, I get dressed, work out shoes and all. It reminds and motivates me to exercise. If you work a 9-5, change as soon as you get home, whenever it fits your schedule best. If I'm in my tennies and sweats, I feel dumb just sitting on my rump. ;)

Stay in control when baking goodies.

When I bake a cake or cookies for my family, I keep a bowl of fruit or vege's right on the counter where I am working, so when I am tempted to even lick a spoon I can reach for a healthy snack instead. Then later have my ONE cookie! :)

Send yourself weigh in reminders.

I weigh in on Mondays and I set up email reminders to come every Friday, I flag them and leave them in my inbox until I weigh in to keep on track over the weekends!

5% Journal

I have a notepad/journal I carry with me everywhere. On the first page is a list of my starting weight minus 5%, then that weight minus 5% and so on down the line to my goal weight. When I see that everyday, I get so excited about the day I can check off each one and I stay motivated. It's my own personal challenge.
