IF YOU HAVEN'T WORN IT IN A YEAR, DONATE IT

Get rid of anything in your closet that no longer fits or you don't wear because you don't like it. Make a list, donate it to charity and get a receipt for an income tax deduction.

Have faith in yourself

Sometimes we accidently let our minds run off with unwanted issues we need to deal with...making them more stressful/scary than they may be.The more we focus on the negative (what if's) & assume negative (reactions), the more it affects us negatively. CALM your mind. YOU CAN take charge of it calmly, peacefully, LEAD interactions & affect outcomes through YOUR behavior, words & actions. Stay in positive control of your mind. Aim to enter it in as relaxed state as you can.

Clean Produce

When you get home from the market, wash the veggies & put them in appropriate containers. That way when they're needed clean-up isn't necessary.

Baby is awake

When my daughter gets up before the rest of the house I take her for a walk. It is better than turning on cartoons to keep her quiet. Not only does it help her go back to bed but it is helping me lose weight as well.

Extra Movement

What I like to do. Is when I am doing any housework. I turn the cable box off. (tv is my stereo) put my playlist on from my hubby PS3. Nothing soft or ballady. Something that really gets me moving. So while doing housework I am getting a little bit of cardio in too. I dance. Do a little dance (headbang, mosh, Charleston) choose your poison. Just make the housecleaning more fun and to your advantage.

Keep Moving!

I was tired of sitting at my desk ALL day with very little activity. So I founded a walking club at work! Also, each time I get up to use the bathroom, I do a set of an exercise I choose at the beginning of the day. Air squats, pushups, burpees. It keeps me moving!

Getting Your Veggies In

I love vegetables but my husband does not. So to take care of him and satisfy my need, I chop them up very small and add as many of them as I can whenever I can. He can't pick them out but they are a part of our menu. He often does not know they are there and therefore does not complain. emoticon
