A little tax secret

I use a free program called "It's Deductible" available online at:

ine.intuit.com
You
can create and save a list of all the things you donate to charity and directly import it into Turbotax if you use that software. Otherwise just printout the list.

Organize those little charging cords!

Use binder clips on your desk or dresser, clip the clip to the edge then thread your charging cord through the wire loop. This keeps them off the surface but ready to be used. At the other end (on the floor) plug in the chargers to a power strip and you are ready to go.

Google timer

It's easy getting lost in surfing the web, even on sparkpeople! I have a free google sidebar tool that I set up with a timer, the weather, a clock, a calendar and a memo list to keep me organized. I use the timer to limit my time on the computer. It measures up to 60 minutes.

Menu Shuffle

Use the portable post-it flags to write down your different dinner entrées. Use different colors for each category (beef meals get a red flag, chicken yellow). You can plan your menus for the week by sticking the flag on the calendar day you plan to have the meal. If you need to switch just move it.

Exercising Your Sense of Humor

Opportunity may knock only once, but temptation leans on the doorbell.
It is very difficult sometimes being consistent in following your fitness plan. Keep your chin and spirits up by exercising your sense of humor.

Closet shuffle

When your closet starts getting overcrowded, take all the hangers with your clothes and put them in backwards. If you use a garment, you can reverse the hanger. After a month pull all the clothes that are still hung backwards and remove them -- you're not wearing them and they just take up space!

"No Shortcuts"

"There are no shortcuts to anywhere worth going."
I've found this to be true in my journey to fitness. It's the process of building good habits - food journal, exercise, being part of the sparkpeople community that gets you where you want to be.

Lattes for Less

Make your own sugar free, fat free latte...look in the yellow pages for grocery supply places, they stock the bottles of latte flavorings and have a sugar free selection. Make a latte with 1% milk, coffee and flavoring for pennies!

Schedule yourself first!

Make "YOU" the priority for the week. Before you make any commitments schedule "YOU" time - whether its exercise, meditation or journaling - give yourself the time to do the things you need to be successful for your goal. Then fit in the other stuff as best as you can.

"Shorten" the workout

Thirty minutes on a treadmill or reclining bicycling seems a lot of time but if you set the display to time elapsed until you get to 15 minutes and time remaining for the last 15 minutes it just doesn't feel like much. After all it's only 15 minutes!
