Walking in the rain
If it is raining when it is time for your walk, go to a parking ramp and walk up and down it. The incline is a little change of pace and you can 'car shop' while you walk. Just watch out for cars!
Ever Loose Your Car?
When parking in a large or unfamiliar parking lot, use your cell phone to snap a photo of the row or space number. It beats wandering around attempting to set of your panic alarm to find it.
Steps at Work
Now that it is cold where I live, I can't walk outside during lunch. Instead, I have been walking the stairs in our office building.
Work out at Lunch - Don't Shop
I make it a rule to work out over my lunch 4 times a week. Not only to I get exercise, I am not eating out, or shopping to kill time.
Spark All Day
I leave SP up all day in a seperate window. It makes it easier to track ALL my food and when I get a few minutes, I can check out a few articles, earn some points, etc.
When making something you know your family likes, make 2 and put one in the freezer. It save time!
What I hate
i hate being fat more than i hate exercise and diet
Stay logged in all day
i stay logged in all day and post my food/exercise/water as i go. it helps me stay in budget and is a little reward to myself.
Bring your own nail polish to a pedicure. That way, you can touch up with the same color and extend the life of your pedicure.
I never, never fold kitchen towels or underwear. Whip those babies in a drawer and move on!
