About a year ago we noticed that our son (nearly 4) really wanted to help us clean. So instead of saying no you're too little, we encourage him to help with chores that are safe for him to help with. He helps with the garbage, the laundry (changing from washer to dryer and dryer to folding), put the silverware away from the dishwasher, and gets to hold the cord while I vacuum. Everyday he keeps his room picked up, he gets $0.25 for his piggy bank. It works for us and the house stays nice and neat.
If you buy a soda (the small 20 oz bottle) while out and about, save your bottle after you're finished. Take it home, wash it, and fill it with water. If you prefer your water cold put it in the fridge. Then grab it when you need to exercise or go out and about again. It's all ready and you have 2 servings of water right there. You can keep re0using as long as you like. Save money and helps you get in your 8 water a day.
In the past, if I slipped up, I would say 'screw it' and just keep eating bad for the rest of the day. It would turn into the next day, then the next week. Now, I don't wait until the next day, I start with the next snack or meal. I feel good about, and the little slip up is a lesson learned.
