Quick and easy way to clean grass stains off white leather shoes

Sometimes I forget and wear my newer white leather walking shoes to mow the yard. I always felt like my shoes were "ruined", but today, I wiped them down with several sheets of a generic brand of "diaper wipes" - and that worked perfectly!

What's healthy in the Junk Food You are craving after workout?

I've noticed that after a good workout, when I am suddenly "craving" some junk food like ice cream or something cheese-y etc, if I take a moment to think about what is in the food that might be soothed with a healthier substitute. For ice cream, I usually find a small container of Greek yogurt with fruits or some nuts satisfy my craving and give me good nutrients for my muscles after the workout.

Help Food Tracker be more flexible & accurate -

Just enter new favorites in different size servings. For example, my almond milk nutritional info is 1 serving = 1 cup. What if I like to pour a small splash into coffee? I re-entered (and saved) a new entry using "1 serv = 8 oz" since 1 cup equals 8 oz, right? Then I can guess my splash to be 1 oz or 1/4 oz (or I could resave info with however many Tablespoons per cup.). It would work with metric too.). Makes Life Easier!

Superpower your Willpower

I read this hint in "Women's World" (May 28, 2012) issue and IT REALLY WORKS!!

When cutting back on sweets or other temptstions, it is much more powerful to say "I don't want it" rather than "I can't have it." Studies show that saying "I can't..." makes me feel deprived and weakens my resolve. By saying "I don't want...", I feel in control and more empowered to stay on track. Try it!!

Win Win Win

We have a single-stream recycling pick-up every two weeks - that means all cardboard, pasteboard, plastics (not bags, but bottles, milk jugs, etc), unbroken glass jars/bottles, aluminum & steel cans (we have a list!) can all be collected and put into the bin. Then it is weighed and we get "Recycle Bank Points" for it. WIN!

So...when I walk, I bring along bags and pick up recyclable items and carry them home. Sometimes it's extra "weight" (think strength training along with cardio, right?) - WIN!

Profound Observation made by Drew Carey!

"Eating junk food is not a reward - it's a punishment!"

I just read that from the back issues of newspapers collected while I was gone. It was in the interview he did for the Parade Magazine the 26th September 2010.

It may not seem like a "secret" but I think it is, for me, because it was something I was secretly hiding from myself. I'd go oink out on some high calorie junk food as a "reward" and then wondered why I felt so bad afterwards! But Drew just blew it out of the water!
