Sparkpoints

When my motivation starts to dip, I challenge myself to see how many sparkpoints I can rack up. I look on my team boards. See where I am in the rankings. Then challenge myself to move up through the competition. It works for me. I do the same thing with exercise minutes.

Organize your bills!

I bought this great 8 pocket organizer from Walmart for $4. It has four large pockets and then in front of each is a smaller buckled pocket. (Wish I could post a picture.)

I use the larger pockets to put my bills unfolded in order by date due (one pocket per bill) then as the bill gets paid, I fold it in half write the date I paid it and stick it in the smaller buttoned pocket.

It has really helped me get my bills under control. No more piles of mail and no more missed deadlines/late fees

Keep Going

There will always be challenges in our lives to test our courage, strength and spirit. Some will be manageable and some will be earth shattering. But abandoning our workouts and hurting ourselves with food will never solve our problems!
No matter what challenge you face....KEEP GOING!

Tips for Fruit Loving Kids

My kids adore fruit. Usually that means the fruit bowl is empty before I even get any. By simply buying watermelon, canetloupe, pineapple, and honeydew melon...I extended my food budget and now have enough fruit for the entire week for the whole family.

Water Trick

I save all of my disposable bottles. I rinse them up, and refill them. Then I leave them next to the sink. That way my required water is already right there and waiting for me to drink it. No hassle and can't forget. emoticon

Laundry Soap

Laundry Soap manufacturer's bank on the fact that people FOLLOW directions. If you read the bottle, it says to use 1 cap full for a large load.

I use half a cap in a large load and my clothes still smell fresh and are cleaned. It saves a lot of money too. emoticon

Healthy Lifestyle Tab

I am financially challenged. I have to read articles to get sparkpoints so I go to the yellow healthy lifestyle tab, then to lifestyle centers, then financial fitness. Might as well use those sparkpoints where they will benefit me the most!
