Take a vacation from work - NOT exercise!

Even on vacation, it's easy to get in at least 10 minutes of cardio. Try taking a brisk walk around the property or some laps in the pool!

Make appointments with yourself for execise

Whether I have got way off track or suddenly realised I just let a few weeks of no focused fitness activity pass, I find that I need to check my calender and block out specific time with specific goals to aim for.

Getting rid of the Damp Smell.

Often thick Towels & Bed sheets don't dry fully in the Dryer & later develope a damp,dank Smell if not dried properly.To beat this add 0.5 cup Vinegar in the last rinse----Hand or Machine wash-----this fluffs up the Bedsheets, Towels softens them and leaves the Clothes with a clean fresh Smell!!

Use Quicken or other money-managing software

I set up 3 accounts on Quicken. One for savings & investments. One for mortgage, credit cards, loans, etc. And one for checking accounts I use to pay bills, etc. It is motivating to see the Debt decrease and the Savings grow every month. It is also a reality check to track how much you owe or save.

Meal Planning

Grab a notebook, scan your cupboards, and plan your meals for the week using ingredients you already have on hand. Make one stop at the grocery store for that week for anything else you need. I find I have less chance to put unnecessary things in my cart if I buy only what I need for the week.

Self control when eating out

I believe that once a healthy lifestyle is established it is possible for a person to lose weight while occasionally dining out at fast food restaurants.

Do it for yourself and not someone else

When I try to lose weight to make someone else happy or impress someone, I never can. I am most successful when I am doing it for myself.

Take action

When you are feeling low, take action to do something positive. If you can do just one small thing, it can be a trigger for doing the next small thing, then the next, and before you know it you may have started an upward swing and feel more positive already!
