The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason is full of financial wisdom! It's a fast read and you can find it free at your local library. I highly recommend this book!

What to do with leftovers.

Don't throw food away. Enjoy your leftovers tomorrow for lunch or, yes, breakfast. You made it healthy to begin with; it will be healthy all over again. Every time you chunk food in the garbage, envision dollar bills you're throwing out, because that's what's really happening. If you hate leftovers, shop for and prepare exactly what you'll eat and no more. What to do with leftovers? Eat them!

Stop comparing!

Occasionally I find myself comparing my body and weight loss to others. Rather than getting depressed and giving up, I take a step back and focus on how far I've come. This journey is for me and every step forward is a personal success.

Managing Apts

When my children were living at home, I use to struggle on who and when they needed to be somewhere.. So I took a binder and split it into 4 sections.. The first tab being a calendar.. (all apts, practices and games were put in here), 2nd tab being a list of all my kid's friends, address, parents names and phone numbers. 3rd tab, was their school schedules/classes, and teacher's names, 4th tab was a list of emergency numbers, Dr. Dentist, hospital, work and such... This book stayed by the phone

water water water

I notice the more water I drink the more weight I lose. Ever since my gall bladder surgery my appetite went way down. So I took advantage of it and decided since I couldn't drink alot of pop anyway I have been drinking more and more water. I keep losing weight and the appetite has stayed the same.

Adding more meal categories

I'm still breaking myself of the Junk Food/Grazing habit, so I've added these two titles as additional meals so I can see at a glance, (because I'm now committed to "honestly" list these foods on my nutrition count) - where I've made poor food choices, and resolve to do better. It works for me!

Starting the Day Healthy

I find that if I make the effort to start the day off on a healthy note, I'm much more likely to continue the trend all day. I eat a healthy breakfast like oatmeal and fruit. Then I feel motivated to eat a healthy lunch, dinner, and work out. On the other hand, if I start off eating loads of pancakes, bacon, etc. I figure 'It doesn't matter' for the rest of the day....and tend to splurge or give up.

Mock caprese

Like caprese but don't want the calories of a big hunk of buffo mozzarella? Substitute lowfat cottage cheese for the mozzarella. And if you don't have fresh basil, buy a plant rather than a bunch at the grocery. You can snip enough for caprese from a freshly planted basil plant.
