If you've overindulged

If you've overindulged and are WAY over your calories, do NOT count the day as "blown" and keep eating--stop overeating RIGHT THEN, be kind to yourself over it, learn from the experience, and resolve to start anew from that second on!

Stop blaming the food!

There is no such thing as a good or bad food. Food is fuel. Depending on what you put in your body will help you lose or gain weight. Some food will give more energy than others. Find out a good combination so you don't deprive yourself and gorge later.

Make Yourself a TREAT Bowl

Make yourself a big bowl full of healthy treats such as flavored water packets, sugar free candy, Special K snacks, Weight Watchers snacks, 100 Calorie snacks, and Full Bars. Keep whatever you put in it around the 100 calorie range. You can have 1 treat out of it 3 times a day!!

Wall Push Ups in the Bathroom COUNT!

This might sound weird, but it works! If you work in an office setting that has individual bathrooms, sneak in a few extra exercise minutes throughout the day. Every time I visit the powder room, I sneak in 30 wall pushups. Since I've increased my water intake, this often means 90-120 pushups/day!

Keeping track of Keys

I used to lose my keys all of the time...sooo...now I use a key ring with a clip on the end. I attach a book ring or key ring around the strap/handle of my purse/bag and clip the keys right to it. You can also clip the keys right to a ring or zipper on a duffel bag/backpack/purse.

Create Clutter-Free Zones

Having a clean, organized house lowers your stress and settles your mind. I use to say "My house reflects my state of mind' when my house was dirty. I meant it as a joke but now I realize how true that statement actually is.

Grilled Corn

I love it when my husband makes grilled corn on the cob. He brushes it lightly with olive oil, sprinkles with sea salt, freshly ground pepper, and garlic powder, then wraps in foil. Throw it on the grill while meat is cooking, and it is the perfect summer veggie!

Planting Containers

I found that if I soak the dirt in a container before planting, the plants are happier, and you won't be surprised later by how much the dirt has compacted down - leaving that ugly gap!

Set the timer

I am amazed at the number of things I can do in the day if I set a timer. (15 mins-bathroom,20mins-laundry
)
I even set it for fun things, reading a book, craft, visiting SP pages. It helps me stay balanced with my time. emoticon

Check the price per unit

When grocery shopping, make sure you check the price per unit. Don't simply assume the bigger box is the better deal; stores have gotten wise to that idea and often the big container does, in fact, cost MORE per pound/ounce/cracker than the small one. Crazy, but true.
