healthy pizza at home

Boboli makes a 100% whole what pizza crust, I like to throw some low-sugar marinara sauce on it, mozzarella cheese, some minced garlic, assorted vegetables (my favorite is broccoli and onion), and a sprinkle of almost every spice in my cabinet.

frozen delight

I have been trying to cut back on added sugar which hampers my ice-cream options. What I do now is mix 1/2 cup Breyer's no sugar added Vanilla ice cream with 1/2 cup of frozen fruits and a tbsp of wheat germ. I mix with a spoon, and I enjoy a sorbet-like treat.

e.g., with frozen strawberries:

secret from dr. oz

This isn't my secret, it's one of his weight-loss rules that I thought would be very challenging but instead am finding it to be very helpful. Stop eating 3 hours before bedtime.

Those hours are when I tend to eat the most junk! By following this rule I am literally cutting out probably a third of my food intake for the day!

putting things in perspective

i was speaking with a soldier from the army who told me that since his tour in iraq, he rarely feels rattled. why? b/c he tells himself - no one is shooting at me here.

i do not serve in the military but i still use this mantra as a way for me to put things in perspective. yes, sometimes there are pretty tough things that happen in my life, but you know what? no one is shooting at me. i can handle it & it will pass.

night routine: water by bedside

every night before i go to bed i fill a glass of water and put it by my bed. in the morning it's the first thing i see and i take it with me as i start my day. i get in my first 2 glasses of water easily, and i actually have come to enjoy drinking water first thing in the morning. it also makes it easier to drink it the rest of the day.

fruits in the morning

i find that if i can get in a couple of servings of fruits and veggies for breakfast, i am more likely to meet my 5 servings quota.. to do this - one fruit and a glass of juice* can total up to 3 servings..

very motivating

(only some juices count as 2 servings per glass)

a year forward and backward

once a day i like to take some time to envision where i would like to be on the same date one year ahead. what do i want to look like, where do i want to be going, what do i want to be doing.

also i like to reflect back to what i was probably doing a year before. what was i worried about that i have overcome? what was i working on that i have accomplished? etc..
