Cooking

I cook from scratch, which means dinners usually take an average of 2 hours - a lot of that standing and doing stuff in the kitchen.

Challenge yourself!

I create mini challenges for myself like seeing if I can go an entire day without spending money. Then two days. It forces me to realize the little places I spend my dough but I also find I eat better because I pack lunch and my snacks for the day!

Dessert gum

I'v found chewing the Extra dessert gum in flavors like mint-chocolate ice cream, key lime pie, watermelon, strawberry-banana and strawberry cheesecake after dinner are a good choice for "dessert". I find I look forward to this treat emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Helpful Around The House

About a year ago we noticed that our son (nearly 4) really wanted to help us clean. So instead of saying no you're too little, we encourage him to help with chores that are safe for him to help with. He helps with the garbage, the laundry (changing from washer to dryer and dryer to folding), put the silverware away from the dishwasher, and gets to hold the cord while I vacuum. Everyday he keeps his room picked up, he gets $0.25 for his piggy bank. It works for us and the house stays nice and neat.

One Day at a time

Keep in mind that change occurs even it is not clearly measurable. By saving one penny a day at the end of the year it's $365.00 - the same goes with this. Small changes ends up with big results

So easy a 2 year old invented it

My neice, who hasn't entered the terrible twos, even though today is her 3rd birthday, is a genius. She wakes up and says, "It is a perfect day." She then proves it. If we all woke up that way, our workout would be automatic, our bodies perfect, our food choices, perfect. Imagine? emoticon

Exercise during TV

About a month ago, I bought the “Shake Weight”. I got it to give me something healthy I can do during commercials when watching TV. At first I could only shake it for a few seconds at a time. Last night I was able to shake it every commercial for almost the length of the entire commercial break.

You CAN do this!!

You can do this. One day, one small thing at a time. Take the stairs. Replace one bottle of soda with water. Get up off the couch. You can do this!!

SLOW DOWN! Cut your food as you eat, instead of before...

As an extremely fast eater, I used to cut all my food up before I ate it. And before Icould blink, all my food was gone. So, I tried cutting each bite individually... (cut one bite, eat it, cut next bite, eat it, etc) I found that doing it this way makes my food "last longer" and I am more satified in the end!
