Fat scimming

To remove the fat floating on top of stews, soups etc. Take a slotted spoon, put an icecube or two in it and gently strain the top thru it. The liquid goes thru, the fat coagulates and stays in the spoon. The melted ice is just water.

sneaky strength training

i walk to the store and on the way back I do bicep curls with the bags I am carrying and other arm exercises. Since every day I buy something different, it is different weights for variety. so I get cardo and strength and the things I need as well.

Cleaning trays under stove burners

First I soak those catch-all trays under my stovetop burners. After I clean the rest, I take a fork and lightly scrape at all that gunk cooked on them. Most of it comes off in seconds, then I use the scrubby for a quick finish.

getting goodies in hard Times

I use my spark points to give gifts that I couldn't afford in reality. I also give myself presents for doing a good job, I try to make sure it is something I really want, so every day there it is reminding me to save up for it. This is having your cake and eating it to.

Motivating others to let you exercise

being a help to my family is my greatest motivator. Getting them to understand that exercise is good for me is my biggest obstacle.They all work but getting them to let me do it was a job, I cited my health, weight and bad blood test results. emoticon

Chilling Treats

when I buy fresh fruit, I always prepare it, (peel and dice) then put some in the fridge, some in serving size bags in the freezer. I use the frozen servings in lunch boxes, they keep the food cool and thaw by lunch time. For snacks, I only let them partially thaw, enough for comfortable eating.
These are expecially good for hot weather snacks or refreshers at work like construction where you need extra liquid and cooling. emoticon
