DRINKING YOUR 8 PER DAY.

I keep my water bottle with me when I am on the computer. As I go through Spark for the day , I take a big drink after entering anything for points. I can usually drink 6 cups by doing this. emoticon

Curbing Your Hunger

I frequently get the "hungries late in the afternoon or early evening. I have found the best way to curb it is to drink a cup of warm milk. It fills me up and since I use no-fat I don't add that many calories to my day's count.

Check your Water Heater.

I had noticed that the water coming out of the hot water faucet was way too hot. Checked the temp. setting and it was at 135. Since it is only my husband and I we turned it down to 100. Still plenty of hot water for our needs and a big difference in our electric bill.
We also shut the hot water off while on vacation. It has its own circuit breaker--not that hard to do.

My secret words

Instead of saying I think I can- I say I know I can.
Instead of saying maybe - I say I will.
Instead of saying I can't - I say I will try.
I always try to use the positive side of things. emoticon

Yard sales

Everytime I bring something home from the store--be it dishes, glasses, whatever, I put an equal quantity into a tote for the garage sal;e, donation to church rummage, or for Goodwill. Helps keep a lit on things.

WALKING WITH A PURPOSE.

I live on a country lane. Measured distance to and from mailbox is 1/2 mile. Also to get to my friend at the other end of the lane is 1/2 mile . I do this in the evening when I couldn't get to the treadmill or gym. The weather is nicer now and its much easier to do.
