Fitting in more exercise

I normally don't sit on the couch while watching TV. You can find me exercising on the floor or walking (Leslie Sansone style) while watching my favorite TV show.

Schedule

I'm a procrastintor so I've decided to made a daily schedule each morning. I'm not going to obsess about completing my list but I think it will help. I sometimes write things in my planner but never get around to do them. emoticon

Health and wellfare tip......

I have been taking my laptop outside and have been sparking on the deck. That way I get to enjoy sparking and nature at the same time. I'd rather be a deck nerd than be a kitchen table nerd!

Why pretend?

Why pretend you will do something if you know you will not? Why not just face the facts and go on your merry way. Last month I decided that I was going to learn to cook Asian food. Who was I kidding? I hate to cook.....I might as well face it.....it's not going to change!

Do you have a sweet tooth?

I have found a great way to satisfy my sweet tooth. Instead of taking traditional vitamns (I have a hard time swallowing big pills) I take two adult gummy-type vitamins daily and caramel flavored calcium chews. It's like a double whamny, vitamins and sweets at the same time.

Banana bread

We eat bananas regularly but sometimes one or two get overripe. I used to pitch them but now I stick them in the freezer. I have a recipe (no nut for the teen with allergies) for banana bread that calls for two bananas so when I get two in the freezer I pull them out on Saturday and make the teen banana bread.

Perscription for procrastination

I am a procrastinator. If I let myself, I would spark all day. In an attempt to limit my time on the computer, I start my day collecting spark points. Once that is done, I turn off the computer until I do the chores/activities that I really need to do, Then, when I log back on later in the day, I get to visit with friends, comment on blogs, and do whatever I want on the site gult-free. emoticon

Christmas tree decorations

We have a small family (mostly out of towners) so there are few presents under the tree. To fix that, I wrap empty boxes and decorate them with ribbons and bows or used decorative boxes. It makes 'under the tree' more festive. emoticon

Maintenance

I have been maintaining for three weeks and am doing fine. My secret is just commonsense. I am continuing to track my food and exercise and it has been working. When I cheat (am trying to keep it to a minimum) I just have to be careful for the next few days.
