Goals

Before starting your program take time to set your goals. Without a road map to base your decisions on it will be difficult to know where you are heading or be able to reward yourself along the way. Rewards of small goals will keep you focused and encourage your success.

Polishing Brass the Green way

Use a lemon cut in half and rub it over the brass object. You will see the tarnish coming off. Once you finish this take a wet rag and wipe the lemon off. Follow that with a good drying with a soft cloth. The brass will shine and be tarnish free.

journal

Journaling can help you to know where you are and where you are coming from. It helps you to see what you may have done to affect your program and how to correct yourself to get back on track. Journaling is a great way to express yourself, review your actions, and motivate yourself on your journey.

Priorities between people and things

Things can be replaced but people can't. If you keep that attitude then when a thing is lost or broken you can realize that it can be replaced. What can't be replaced is the relationship with the person that may have lost or broken a thing that is yours. Where do your priorities lie?

Read Labels

Reading labels and avoiding added salt has helped me to eat healthy and lose weight. So many items items from OTC meds to food have added sodium written in variouus forms. By avoiding items that contain sodium I have been able to keep from adding pounds due to water retension.

Food tracking

Tracking food each day helps me know what I have actually consumed, the calories, and the nutrients. I can observe what is different from day to day and pin point what may have caused a weight gain or loss.
