Special Treats on Vacation

I love to bake from scratch for my family on vacation. It's cumbersome to take ingredients along so I combine the dry ingredients in zip lock baggies before I go. On the outside of the bag, I write the wet ingredients that need to be added and the temp and time on the bag so I can bake for my family when we are on vacation.

Get Moving

Sometimes we might spend too much time on Spark...it seems like we are doing the right things for ourselves, right?...but maybe instead of Sparking, we need to get up and get moving! I know, SP points are SO addicting, aren't they!?!?

Getting your Water

One of the challenges is getting enough water during the day. I use a 44 ounce "to go" cup from the corner C-store. I used to fill them with Diet Coke, now I fill them with ice and water and I use a big straw and just suck down that water! Try it, it's so tempting, you can't help but get the 44 ounces at a time! emoticon

Do the nest RIght thing

Sometimes this journey gets tough, we lose our way. When I can't really remember the rules, I can't see the "BIG picture" I just do the next right thing. And this journey is a series of next right things...

Celebrate Money Successes Too!!!

When you pay off (or down) a credit card, celebrate the success! This might be when you hit a $1000 increment, or a $500 increment...Or the real BIGGIE, when you pay one off. Celebrate the achievement! Just don't go spend big bucks on a credit card!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Choices when Eating Out

I like the suggestions of looking at the menu before going out to dinner, however, I might feel like something different when I get there, so I choose 3 options that fit in the daily food choices, usually a chicken, seafood and a salad or pork or beef option. Then, I get to open the menu and "choose" like everyone at the table. And I get to say "I'm trying to choose between this, this and that" like everyone else.
