When your stressed and need something to help get your mind right try gardening. I like to yell and complain to my plants as I re-pot them or do my outdoor weeding and planting. The plants never complain if I yell and swear or get too rough with them. When I'm pulling up the weeds and digging in the dirt planting new seeds and bulbs or even just re-potting my old over grown plants I'm getting a great workout and relieving all that stress I started out with in the beginning.
To keep those pesky yet playful squirrels out of your bird feeders add some cajun or red ground pepper to your bird seed and stir it in. The birds aren't affected by it at all. One sniff of it and the squirrels turn tail and won't touch your seed again! It works better than any of those silly domes or deterrent. And is a LOT cheaper!
Instead of buying chocolate bars or bags of m&m's get individually wrapped chocolates like Hershey's Kisses. They take longer to unwrap and eat so your more likely to eat less of them. I'm so lazy sometimes I won't even get to the first one LOL It's too much like work!!
I love when people enter in "famous quotes" from other dieters and comics and such. It helps to put a laughable twist on the hard dieting facts of life. One of my faves I've heard was "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels" but I forgot who said that. lol My blog has a ton of them!
