Use cream, NOT lotion

Some lotions evaporate so fast, they do more harm than good. This is according to my dermatologist, who tells me to use cream instead of lotion.

Take magical steps towards your miracle

I used to kick myself for what I should have eaten or should have done. Spark People has changed me. Now I imagine every positive step I take towards being healthy as magical.
-take my meds or do a blood sugar test
-choose a fiber rich snack
-go for a walk
-make a post on a Spark People thread
Some days I "run a marathon of steps" and some days are just one or two "baby steps" but they all mattter! They all add up. Look for an opportunity and run with it!

Buy generic

When you purchase OTC medicines, check the labels of the name brands, then the labels of the generic products placed next to them on the shelf. You will find they contain exactly the same ingredients in the same proportions. Then, check the price difference. Go with generic!

Save SOMETHING every Payday

My hubby and I have a small emergency fund, but we still weren't saving on a regular basis. We decided to save $25/paycheck, which sounds pretty painless, but adds up toe $100/mo and $1,200 saved per year! Pick an amount that you know you can stick back every paycheck and stick to it. You will be amazed at how quickly it adds up!

Getting a reality check

Run SparkPeople Reports such as "Calories & Nutrients over time" and "Calorie Differential Over Time" for a reality check.

Looking at those graphs today really highlighted for me why my weight loss is so very, very slow.

Remove Onion Odor from hands

When you cut up very strongly scented foods like onion or garlic it's next to impossible to get the smell off your hands. If you have a stainless steel faucet that's really all you need. Just wet your hands and run them over the faucet and wash with hand soap. No more onion smell!

Most Comfy Bra EVER!!!!!

Spanx!!!!! Here it is. I went to Lord & Taylor determined to find a comfy bra and tried on the Spanx Bra. Not cheap $62. But worth every penny. Thicker, soft straps, front closure but you can get different styles. No hooks, stitching, tags to bother you. I need 2 more they only had black but they have them online. Spanx.com

When I want to snack

When I want to snack, especially at night when I'm not even really hungry, I paint my nails. Cant stick my hands in a bag of chips or popcorn if my fingernails are wet. :-)
