As you go about your day, take one minute and clean that spotty mirror or that splattered-on microwave. Also, did you just use a screwdriver or hammer; put that tool away right now!
Whenever I don't feel like exercising, I remember what I read on someone's blog once , , "Exercise is a privilege." Consider yourself blessed that you are able to still walk, run, and exercise, when so many others cannot due to age, illness, or handicap. It really make you not want to abuse the privilege!
Next time you go thru the fast food drive thru (for a salad of course - lol!) don't throw those extra napkins in the trash! Bring them in the house and use then. Plus, think of all the trees you will be saving!
Each day clean out your pockets and/or purse of change and put in a container. When full take to bank and add to your savings. You would be amazed how much you can save using this small, but mighty method of saving money.
Beware of Diet Soda! I find that Diet Cola and other diet sodas give me the munchies. It's because of the artificial sweeteners (like aspartame) in them! Also, they tend to give you a bloated stomach and help you hang onto belly fat. Try eliminating them and you'll FEEL and LOOK so much better. I was drinking 5 cans of diet cola a day and now I am down to NONE. One little change - and I'm saving money too because diet soda is expensive and WATER is free!!
