coffee and tea grinds

if you have a cat take the used coffee grinds and tea grinds and sew them in a pouch. Any used scrap of material will do. Cats take to them like they do catnip. I had a cat that loved it and I didn't have to buy the catnip.

candy

My diabetic nutrionalist said to have small amounts of candy or something sweet in order to satisfy the sweet tooth. I have the minature candy bars usually 1 but sometimes 2 and its enough to satisfy my sweet tooth sometimes for days. It's enough to keep me from binging on sweet things.

more time for exercise and nutritious food.

When you pick up for 10 min. a day you remove the clutter. Soon you are doing it 3 times a day and removing what was there before thereby leaving more time to exercise and cook homemade food that's nutritious because you don't have to clean.

indoor garden

For those who are limited on space try a Tuppermaid container that holds clothes and instead of putting clothes in it put dirt and plant some seeds then put by the window. You have vegetables and don't have to go to the store for them.

Kroger crackers

This is so light and crunchy and quite tasty. They are as good as the Zesta crackers. So much better in price though. I totally recommend them. They are so worth the price if you have them in your area.

trying to get to sleep

when I have trouble getting to sleep I go on the computer and do my computer work for the next day. I don't like to toss and turn so its better to get rid of e-mail or do the points for spark people for that next day. That way I sleep in later the next day and feel rested. emoticon

exercise, diet and sparks

I sit at the computer and do my e-mail on Sparks and instead of eating I get absorbed in the mail. Then with everyone talking about exercise I excuse myself and get motivated to doing my exercises. I also don't think about eating all day because I'm busy talking online.

I find that when i eat the things I don't like that much first it leaves me the rest of the meal to enjoy what I do like.

lemons

Lemons are not only good for fish but also for water to where it tastes like lemonade or cuts the taste of water so you can drink it. It's also good for salads as a dressing whether or not you eat at home or in a restaurant. It's a very diabetic friendly side item.

getting free things for relatives and myself

I always enter my mom and daughter's info as well as my grandson's father info on the free sites and do it all at once so they don't have to take time out from busy schedule to do it themselves. Everyone benefits. With firefox I just click on the info and it brings it up automatically.
