Chocolate Milk and post workout pain

To keep yourself from getting sore after a workout drink a glass of chocolate milk. It works emoticon AND it's YUMMY!! Hershey's makes a Sugar Free Chocolate syrup that is really low in calories (only 15 calories for 2T)
I do the every time & have yet to get sore, even when I do something "new"

Make Your Own Coffee Pods

If you have a coffee maker that uses single use coffee pods and you're having a hard time finding them as I am or just find them too expensive...make your own. I found tea bags (no tea, just the bags) at Whole Foods (100 for $4.99). They are larger than the single tea bags so I trimmed the bag a bit. Open the bag and spoon in 4 tbsp of coffee and fold over and staple at the fold. I made 40 pods for $6.57 or 17 cents each.

photo food labels to track nutrition

tracking nutrition is essential for losing weight, but i can't always find the foods i eat. to be precise, i enter the information from the package labels, but the kitchen is not near the computer - so use an iphone/smartphone to take a photo of the label and then enter it in the nutrition tracker later. also works for when you are not at home!

Fruit organization

When you buy your whole watermelon, immediately cut it open and cut out the fruit from the rind and place the chunks in containers. This will make for easy enjoyment and keeps your refrigerator free from a large watermelon taking up space. Thus saving you money from having to throw out old watermelon that has not been eaten.

It's not exercise, it's an adventure!

I started mountain biking to strengthen my legs so that I could walk more steadily. I had to decide this was an adventure. When I was told, "I envy your determination!" I replied, "Don't envy my determination, join me for the ride."

Exercise doesn't have to be brutal. Find your starting point, the point that is right for you. From there, when it becomes easy, then slowly intensify it. Make adjustments for progress. This is what I had to do. Now I have begun strength training. I LOVE IT

Salads

When eating out and you have that list of heavy salad dressings from which to choose, opt for a couple of lemon wedgies. It really sparks up the salad.

First Thing Every Morning

I've never been a morning person & LOVE to smack the "snooze button" on my alarm several times when it blares at me in the morning. For the past week & a half, I've been jumping out of bed & getting on my Gazelle for 15 minutes while watching the local news instead of staying cozy in bed. I find that I actually have more energy for the day & I have a feeling of accomplishment! emoticon

One Bag In, One Bag Out!

i have a large family, and things always pile up, to the point where we are overrun with things. now, for every bag of items i bring INTO my house, one bag of equal size of items has to go out that same week. this is the RULE. this includes clothing, food, toys, even electronics! outgoing items can be donated to charity or given to family/friends. this helps us keep our home clutter free, make room for new things and to share with others.
