Vision Board

I have a large magnetic whiteboard for my vision board. It's easy to add things to it, with markers for time limited goals, with magnets for documents, or with tack for magazine cut-outs. It's right by my stationary bike and I review it every morning.

Use your dominant hand

December is full of parties and get togethers! If you hold your drink with your dominant hand while you stand and chat, you'll be less likely to reach for more food!

Use Mason jars with regular blender

I just read this... most regular blenders will accept Mason jars, so you can grind spices or your coffee beans into a Mason jar, and store right away. Simpler clean-up, no need for separate coffee or spice grinders, or to buy one of those 'bullet blenders'. It's also good to know if you happen to break the that jar/lid that comes with your blender. (see clarificiation in"more info", following comments rec'd.)

Check teams first thing

Even if I don't have time to do a lot on SP, I make a point to check my list of teams. It's a good reminder of my goals, since the teams reflect my interests.

Carry Over the Candy

I'll be checking the store today for Hallowe'en candy on sale, but it has to be the right candy - that is candy that can also be used for baking. It will join the leftovers that didn't get handed out last night and used for Christmas baking. Makes nice treats for guests, for cookie exchanges, or for visiting.

Strainer for all your drains

A plumber advised us to ensure there's a strainer in all our sinks and showers. You may not notice how much hair, etc. flows down the drain when you shower or shave, but your pipes sure do. We haven't had a clogged drain since we did this 10 years ago.

Eating out with baby

One of the best buys we made when we had a baby was a hand crank food mill. We brought it with us everywhere. Whether travelling, eating out, or at family gatherings, we would just take some of our own food and grind it down for our son. It made us super aware of eating healthy, since we were sharing with him. And he got used to eating what we eat, and being included at mealtimes. For us, it was much simpler than carrying around baby food.

Paper towel substitute

I bought a bunch of white dishcloths at the dollar store that I use instead of paper towels in the kitchen. If they get stained, I can always wash them in bleach, and they are easily identified by their white colour.

There are SO MANY TEAMS!

When I read a blog that I like, I check out the teams the writer belongs to. It's a great way to browse, and odds are they belong to at least one team that interests me, since their blog interested me.

Using a lunch bag to reduce tempation

Bringing my own lunch to work saves money. I could put it in the fridge at work, but that would mean being tempted by muffins and danishes that are left out from morning meetings. I prefer to pack my lunch in a bag with an ice pack - that way I stay away from the temptations, and my morning and afternoon snacks are handier when I'm really busy.
