Why Keep It?

If I have not worn an item of clothing for a year, I give it away to charity. I believe that someone else needs it more than I do.

Take a nap

Sometimes when I feel like eating a start to reach for a particularly unhealthy choice or trigger food, I stop for a minute and check to see if I am really hungry or if I am feeding my fatigue. If I'm getting ready to feed my fatigue, I take a nap instead of eating!

Happy Place in My Heart

Everyone who knows me will tell you that I am the happiest person they know. They are right. Want to know my secret?
I have an attitude of gratitude and a forgiving memory. I am thankful for the blessings in my life and I forgive hurts easily - I often even forget them, which is better. When I start to slide into negativity or into the poor me stuff, I close my eyes, take a deep breath, and look into my heart where all my joy resides. When I open my eyes, I am centered and prepared for any challenges.

Greek Yogurt

If you have trouble keeping your protein intake high enough and in the right proportion to your carb intake, try greek yogurt. It's much higher in protein than regular yogurt, has a smooth tangy taste, an be used as a substitute for sour cream and is available in flavors, too.
