V8 juice is only 30 calories.

Anytime I feel like a snack, I enjoy a cold glass of V8 juice. Its such a healthy boost. The store brands are quite good and a lot cheaper than the name brand. It really does the trick. It's low calorie, surprisingly satisfying and filling.
(don't forget to shake it everytime)

Do everything before you eat.

I was posting a message when I thought I should share.
I actually clean up everything in the kitchen that I can before we eat. Then I pack the lunches and freezer containers. This leave only enough food that is really needed. Then everyone puts their plates in the dishwasher and something in the refrigerator and we 'all' leave the kitchen really quick. It feels great to sit down with the clean kitchen, lunches packed and a little something extra in the freezer for later. And no over eating!

Green Giant low fat creamed spinach and mashed potatoes

Seriously, You MUST try this my friends. Just Green Giant low fat frozen creamed spinach in your mashed potatoes. The Green Giant Cream of Spinach is 70 calories per serving. It can replace some of the butter and milk so calories equal out. It's so creamy and healthier. Make it to your taste, I added onion, garlic, hot sauce. Why did it take me so long to learn this little trick? It's so pretty on the table too.

So you ate candy yesterday. It is okay to enjoy today.

Remember your NOT a bad person for eating some Halloween candy. That's not what life is about. Don't beat yourself up or think negativity. Just make some better choices today and enjoy today. Let's stop the guilt for food choices.

McDonald's 4 Year Old Cheeseburger Video. This should make you think.

Have you seen the video on the 4 year old french fries from McDonald's. You decide if you want another for yourself or your kids. This is downright scary.

A haircut really?

It's my first haircut in about 6 months. I can't say in words how well it makes me fell. I keep looking in the mirror. No, It did not make me younger or thinner. But just plain special.

Lesson learned.... take care of yourself. Do little things for yourself. It will keep you motivated.

Renew pillows in your dryer. Tried and tested by me. lol

You can renew the life of your pillows in the dryer. The dryer not only kills mites and bed bugs but all other germs. It then fluffs them up like new. I do mine every week for 20 minutes and it really works.

Traveling and snacking.

Try this for a easy, cheap and quick snack. You can get really hot water (free) at any of the newer gas stations. There is nothing better than a hot cup of soup for a quick pick me up. Just pack a few different kinds of cup of soup for the trip.
If you use their cup it may be a few cents but worth it so you don't spill or burn yourself.
You can do the same thing with the small individual prepackaged tubs of instant oatmeal's. Just add the hot water.
