Early morning workouts

* Be a morning person "I've found that a workout is the best reason to get out of bed. I often start exercising at 5 a.m. When I commit to my health that early, I keep making good-for-me choices the whole day

Build exercise into everything

My schedule can get very crazy, so I try to build exercise into everything I do. I walk to do errands, park at the opposite end of the mall from where I'm going ( and walk through the mall, quickly so I'm not tempted by window shopping). If I'm standing in line I do small ab exercises -- isolations and isometrics, so that people don't notice. If I'm out with the children, we run around. Add it all up and it's about 2 hours of activity. Not bad for someone who "doesn't have time to exercise".

You can do it!

If you did it today, you can do it tomorrow. If you didn't do it today, you can still do it tomorrow.
If you are working toward your goal, sometimes you have to change your action steps. Not all work the same for everyone.
Keep on keeping on!

Want Power vs. Will Power

If you want to achieve your goal badly enough, you will not need 'will power', but 'want power'.
I used this phrase each time I went to eat something that I knew would undo my good habits that I had formed.
So, when you think you want something to eat that is less than stellar for your body, ask yourself what you want more. A healthier slim body or those few seconds of chewing delight.
It helps make your goal a lot easier to achieve without any feelings of guilt.

Keep a Clean House

I find that if I tidy up around me, keep at the dishes, and vacuum the house, I feel better, emotionally, and am better able to function. You can literally 'see your way clear' to other projects and tend to feel less overwhelmed.

Ant problem?

Ants hate the smell of cinnamon. If ants are invading your house, sprinkling cinnamon where they are coming in does a good job of getting them to go somewhere else and not bother you anymore.

Easy way to clean the microwave

Instead of scrubbing the stuck on food off the inside of the microwave, try this. Get a 2 cup Pyrex glass and add about 1 to 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and then fill the cup with water. Place inside microwave and boil on high for 10 minutes, The lemon juice will steam the inside of the microwave and the food will wipe right off with a damp sponge, no scrubbing!
