What do you need more of? Remind yourself daily!

Desktop picture... pops up every time I turn on PC

To remind myself to eat more fruit... delicious Fruit sprawling all over the screen!
Found an awesome picture that makes me want to eat veggies, I use it when I don't find myself eating enough veggies.
When my body is craving exercise, but I just can't get myself to do it... I encourage myself with pics that inspire me.
To remember to drink more water, a pic of a refreshing glass of water.

And so on...

Save $$$ and time...buy meat in bulk!

Buy meat in big packages...

Making supper anyways... cook the whole package...
cool extra meat, divide, freeze in amount needed for a meal...
ex. ground beef, chicken
Precooked, saves you time!

or... divide, freeze uncooked meat in meal amount you need
ex. lean ground beef 1 lb. in each ziplock,
single chicken breast in each ziplock...

Save $, Time... easy, quick... grab what you need!

when you go over your calories early...

Eat a light, balanced dinner, drink lots of water, don't beat yourself up, plan your meals in advance for next few days, so it doesn't happen again.

OverEat... Do something extra!

If you find that you overeat during a Family Function, Holiday Get Party, Office Snacks, etc...

Go for an extra walk... take the stairs... you'll feel less full and less guilty after.

Portion Control

Buy meat in bulk... divide ground beef, chicken, etc... Freeze in individual portions in Ziplock baggies... when you want to make a dish, you just grab a bag... defrosts quick... also cheaper than buying smaller packages.

If you're cooking for 2 a lot... make portions for 2... and so on.
