Yep, I'm addicted to these thins!

Several months back, I spotted a box of a snack product called Nonni's THINaddictives on a clearance shelf. As I'm always looking for safe-calorie snacks, I picked them up, and I am glad I did!

These thin, cracker-like munchies come in a variety of flavors, like cranberry, mango-coconut, and ...

Remember - Just 10 minutes

Before SP, I always thought I that if I didn't have enough time to exercise, it was zilch for the day. Now I realize that, even on lazy days, all I need is a 10 minute block of time. I usually find that I do much more than that, so it's just getting started with those 10 minutes that's great.

exercise

When it feels hard my secret is to breathe.
I breathe out all the tension, bad vibes, negativity.
I breathe in positive energy, power, and fresh air!
It is almost as if I am meditating and exercising with breathing!

Take a bottle water and calculate how many of that bottle you need to drink in a day. Add rubber bands around the bottle in the morning and take one off for each bottle you drink. Once all the rubber bands are off, you finished your water for the day !

Just go to bed!

I am really bad about snacking at night. I start to get really hungry (or bored?) around 9pm. So when that happens and I don't want to cheat, I just go to bed early instead of staying up til my usual 11. And as a result, I get more sleep and watch less TV too! It's a win-win.
