Keep a package of baby wipes in the fridge. On those hot days after a walk or run, wipe your sweaty face and neck with the cold wipe for an instant refreshing feeling.

Exercise clothing laundry

Wash specialty exercise clothing with a baby detergent such as Dreft or Ivory Snow. They are formulated to rinse away thoroughly & leave clothes almost residue free. Also, don't use softener sheets if you dry them. These steps will make them last longer & retain ability to wick away moisture.

Save that tomatoe paste!

Save the rest of tomato paste in the can by wrapping approx one tbsp amts individually with Saran wrap then into a Ziploc bag and then into the freezer. When you need tomato paste, take one out and throw it unwrapped into the pot frozen and it melts almost immediately. Quick, easy and frugal!

Homemade clarifying shampoo

Don't buy those expense shampoos that say they get rid of the "build up"from using hair products. Simply add 3-4 teaspoons of baking soda to your regular shampoo bottle. Your hair will be clean, shiny and less frizzy!

Do it in reverse and small increases!

I found that if I did my strength training workout in reverse, increased my cardio by 10 minutes and increased my water intake by 2 glasses, I broke my plateau because my body didn't know what was happening!

Take your Fiber!

I keep a container of Benefiber stored with my coffee cups. I also keep a plastic tablespoon inside the Benefiber to easily measure out the correct amount. This way I remember to take it every morning with my first cup of coffee!

Easy pretty feet!

I always liberally apply Vaseline petroleum jelly to my feet before putting on my socks and sneakers. After my run/walk, my feet are always smooth and soft. My feet always look nice in sandals or strappy shoes!
