Reusing Address Labels

I use the often misprinted free address labels to mark my lunch that I put in the company fridge. They're not wasted & I don't go hungry from a 10 finger discount!

My own dressing

I knew I was going to have a salad at KFC with a friend, so I brought my own salad spritzer to use instead of their 280 calorie dressing. My friend noticed & the conversation about my choice allowed me to also Spread the Spark!

Walking Home with Groceries

When walking home with groceries, carry two bags so you can carry approximately the same weight on each side, easing pressure on one hiop or one side of the lower back.

Visualizing Success

As I wake up, before getting out of bed, I visualize a successful day - staying within range nutritionally, exercising and seeing me fit, trim and healthy. I picture my meals, I see myself working out and I picture me wearing my Aloha print sundress!

Cutting Board Use

I have a very small cutting board that is really too small for its' intended use. I put it on one of my refrigerator shelves and use that surface for small items that would tip or tilt if an edge caught on the metal. (soda cans, Activia yogurt or small containers)

The elevator can be an exercise site

Some days, my knee objects to my use of the stairs. While I wait for the elevator, I do some stretching and, while in the elevator, do hip flexors, squats or other stretches. Then I walk the long way around the floor to my office. The ride is not wasted &, through the day, I can get 10 or so in.
