I use the money I save from not eating fast foods to purchase magazines such as All You, First, and Fitness. When I am looking for something to do to stay away from eating, I read my magazines looking for health info or success stories to keep me motivated.
I recently got back on track by cleaning out my list of favorites in the Nutrition Tracker. I deleted the foods I no longer eat regularly and really saw how much non nutrient foods I had been eating since I started with sparkpeople. My habits have changed so much and it was lightening to remove so many junk foods from my "favorites".
I was at the grocery store and a label caught my eye. It said "Reduced Sodium". I read the nutritional info and the info on the original kind and the sodium content was exactly the same. It is not always what it says!
I used to buy the bags of salad and would end up throwing away (actually feeding to the chickens) salad and spinach due to spoilage or wilting. I now fill a container at the grocery store salad bar with light weight spinach and spring mix and it costs less than the bags and I waste less.
