I type in my password at least a half a dozen times a day on various website and work applications. I've changed my password to be self affirming. It will be something like, "Iamhappy!", "Mylifeisgreat!" or "Iwillbethin!" I add a couple of numbers at the end for security purposes.
No one thinks they have enough time in the day! Do all your cooking in one batch on the weekend. Make enough for lunch and dinner for 5 or 6 days of the week. This free's up a TON of time in the week, and leaves you with one "play" day to eat something different.
Each day, try to learn something new or do something you have never done before! It will energize you and add "spice" to your life! Play the Trivia Game on SparkPeople. Check out a book from the library that you normally wouldn't read. Try a lawn game like Bocce ball. Try a new recipe using a vegetable you have never tried before - think jicama. Brainstorm and find something 'new to you' to SPARK your life, today!
Magnesium protects us against heart disease, lowering blood pressure, protecting against diabetes preventing the recurrence of kidney stones and improving the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome. Magnesium supplements also strengthen muscles and work with calcium to ensure strong bones and protect against osteoporosis. If taken along with a diet rich in magnesium sources, they can protect against a range of illnesses. Magnesium and calcium should really be taken together.Consult your doc!
Carbs greater than 9g per hour triggers insulin. Insulin is the fat storage hormone. Insulin is a storage hormone that is secreted by the pancreas to allow cells of the body to take in glucose from the blood.

Collect all your spare change and put it straight into a savings account. It might be just a little, but it will all add up! Also, if you do rebates or even surveys, put this "extra" income into your savings to help boost your account even more!
I know this is a no brainer but when I am carting everyone from point A to B to C to D ...I have started putting a small cooler in the back of the car and I have fresh fruit & veges and sandwiches in it so no one goes hungry and we can escape the fast food train. Then someone said I should stick $5 in a jar and spend it on something at the end of the month. GREAT IDEA as everytime you go thru a drive-thru you spend 20-25 dollars you are still saving money.
For those who are limited on space try a Tuppermaid container that holds clothes and instead of putting clothes in it put dirt and plant some seeds then put by the window. You have vegetables and don't have to go to the store for them.
