Weekly Pill Organizer/Remin
der

I use a pill organizer/reminder to portion out my pills for the week. As an added reminder, I have made a routine of taking them as soon as I get up in the morning. Haven't missed a day in a very long time. =)

Make Planned Overs Not Just Leftovers

Monday nights we have grilled chicken breast for dinner. I have it for lunch the rest of of the week and on Friday night for dinner again.

Quick Roast Almonds

To quickly "roast" almonds, I heat them in the microwave on high for one minute. They come out crisp and crunchy.

Changing Toothbrushes

Because I change toothbrushes every three months as recommend, when the brand/style I like is on sale I'll buy enough for the entire year (4).

To keep track of when a brush needs to be changed I change them quarterly (Jan-Mar, April-June, etc.) on the first Sunday of the month.

Recycle Greeting Cards

My mother is notorious for losing her bookmarks. So she has begun recycling greeting cards. She chooses the part of the card or image she likes, cuts it to size and then cuts a fancy edge along the outside. It's a really nice way to continue to enjoy any card. And you don't feel guilty if you lose it!

Eat What You Enjoy

If you don't like breakfast food, don't eat. There's nothing written in stone that says you *have to have* eggs or cereal in the morning. If you like tuna fish sandwiches, have one for breakfast! I often eat chicken sandwiches in the morning. And the food police haven't arrested me yet!!! lol

Getting more steps in

We have plants on our front porch. Instead of going out the front door to water them daily, I go out the back door, walk around the house to the porch and back again. Gives me a few more steps each day.

Cleaning produce

I clean my fruit and vegetables as soon as I bring them home from the grocery store. That makes them ready when you want them and all you have to do is measure your portion size.

Tracking food

I keep a pen and a pad of paper in the kitchen so I can write down the food I'm eating as I weigh it. And then when I have time, I sign into my Spark account and add it to my nutrition tracker.

Mini workout

On those days I don't feel like doing my entire workout routine, I do a mini workout. It consists of a warm up, doing the exercises from my workout that I really enjoy, and a cool down and stretch. That way at least I've done something for the day.
