I find that drinking a cup of coffee about 1:30 - 2:00 in the afternoon keeps me from feeling so hungry. It's almost like a little snack. It gives me a boost of energy too, which I think keeps me from feeling like I want to eat.
It costs nothing to be kind and friendly with everyone. From the custodian on up, there are no unimportant jobs or unimportant people. You never know when you are going to need the kindness and support of others.
Use a plastic collander in a microwave safe plate to cook your ground beef. Cook 1 minute at a time and stir and break up chunks after each minute. After it is cooked all the fat will be in the plate and you can put the meat in a skillet to brown it.
Change your mind,
Change your life,
Change your body.
Use it up,
Wear it out,
Make it do,
Or do without!

I have found since I began wearing a step counter that I do move around more. I make extra trips, take the long way, etc. Yesterday I made 19,000 steps, including my workout. I think I have finally broken through my plateau and begun moving in the right direction again.
Anytime I am doing an activity where I would normally stand in one place for several minutes, such as drying my hair, brushing my teeth, washing dishes, I do side steps. I wear a step counter and I can add hundreds of steps to my day!

When ever I eat salad I ask for the dressing on the side. Then I dip my fork in the dressing and then take a bite of salad. When I am through I have used only a small fraction of the dressing, but I still get the dressing taste with every bite and I don't feel I have missed out on anything.
