Don't Give up

You will never get where you want to go in life (weight or anything else) if you have a mind set that keeps focusing on giving up. Stop telling yourself you CAN'T. Believe that YOU CAN. And you WILL. It's always easy to give up on something, but remember why you were doing it in the first place. Remember the only thing stopping you from getting to your dream weight or where you want to go in life is yourself. Believe in yourself. I believe in every one of you who is reading this You CAN do it.

Seasonings

You can make food more tastier by simply blending cilantro, parsley, 1 garlic (all), celery, green onions, Culantro, thyme and a little water (not to be too thick or too thin). You can store this in a container in the fridge or freeze some. This can be used to season meats along with salt and pepper (rub it in or use spoon to mix meat w/ seasoning). I am from the Caribbean and this is what we call Green seasoning. Gives flavor to the food, and smells great.

Saving using envelopes

Instead of using your card get in the habit of having envelopes for all your bills. At pay day cash your check and put whatever is due in the envelopes. In that way you will not get tempted to use the bank card because you are seeing all this money in it and when bill time comes around you will have it ready and to be paid. The remainder save it. If you are done paying off a car continue to take the money and put in savings as if you are still paying for it.

Dirty Microwaves

If you have a dirty microwave and everything you put in it blew up and now you have a tough mess to clean. Simply cut a lemon in 1/2 and put it in a bowl with some water and microwave for 2-3mins. The steam will loosen the mess and the lemon leaves it smelling wonderfully. Easy to clean no chemicals to smell.

Cleaning Glass Doors

You don't need to go to the store and buy Windex or whatever else glass cleaner there is. They still leave streaks anyway. Here is a way you can save money and actually enjoy cleaning.

Add Distilled Vinegar and water (Equal parts) in a spray bottle, and you can use this to clean mirrors or glass doors or windows. You would need to use newspapers (yes newspapers) save your paper towels they cost much more than newspapers. That's it only $3.00 max for 6 months no streaks no smells.

Soft hands & Feet

If you are a busy person and can't find time to go get a mani or pedi (both men & women) These are just simple things you can do to get and maintain soft hands and feet. Invest in a pumice ($1.00 @ Sally') and use this in the shower everyday. Also use a scrub for hands and feet as follows:

Olive oil and granulated sugar (That's it) 4tbsp of olive oil and 2 tbsp of sugar. Make a scrub and use on hands and feets only. Wash off w/ little soap and Voila. Use lotion as normal.

Soft Kissable lips

A little secret I've learned to maintain soft kissable lips. Both Men & Women
Apply chapstick or a little vaseline to your lips and about 1/2 tsp of sugar in the palm of your hands and apply to lips (with the chapstick or vaseline & sugar gently scrub lip using fingers for about 2 mins and wash off. Soft lips. No need for olive oil and honey and all the sticky mess just simple. I do this 2x a week.

Ladies an idea - Guys rather a natural lip (no sticky gloss or heavy lipstick) Hope this helps
