Thank God

No matter how bad your situation seems, it could be worse! When you're down, thank God for even the air that you breathe, and praise Him; it'll change your perspective!

Have a craving for lasagna?

Instead of using noodles, use eggplant slices. You can par boil them for a minute remove and start to layer. Ricotta cheese is low fat, has omega 3's for your brain and heart, calcium and protein. Add green bell pepper, chopped onion, and olives as you layer with some ricotta, parm, and tomato sauce. Yummy!

Margarita flavored jello

Have you ever tried the margarita jello mixed with some lime juice and sugar free cool whip? You pour it into a 9x13 pan and sprinkle some lime zest on top. Cut in little squares and it's delicious on a hot summer day. For an adult treat, add a little tequila to the mix! One of my favorite treats, although the jello seems to be seasonal. Hope they bring it out soon! It's so hot here and would be great for the holiday weekend.

Measure like your weight loss depends on it!

This is the key piece of help I received from Spark to get me off my plateau. I have 4 sets of measuring cups, 6 sets of measuring spoons, and 3 glass measures-at the end of the day my husband can't believe they are all waiting to be washed and used again tomorrow! emoticon

Commit to Completing Just 3 Things a Day

I often ignore things on my to-do list for weeks. So I try to accomplish just 3 things every day. It can be whatever 3 things from my to-do list I want; it's an easier target than doing everything; if I get them done early it motivates me to do more; It sets me up to over-accomplish and feel good rather than disappoint myself.
