Stretching Your Dollars

WAtch the weekly sales flyers and if you have a Coupon Lady to watch check her out too. Last week, though I religiously read flyers, I missed a "Free" item and caught it when watching the Coupon Lady.

Buying Meat Cheaper

Check if your grocery store has a freezer bin for when especially fresh ground meat gets close to its Best Before date and see if they freeze it and reduce the price by 25-50%.

14 right 7 to fix!

So if you eat 3 meals a day for a week, that's 21. So, look at what you do right... breakfast is perfect every day and so is lunch, that makes 14 right immediately... and surely all suppers aren't bad, so really how many meals to you have fix? Mine may only be about 3 or 4, that seems a lot more doable! (Long as I don't count the snacks! - coupla cups of herbal tea to start)

I Cannot Tell a Lie

Post your exercise you plan to do on your tracker. Then when it comes time if you are thinking of excuses not to, you have to because you've committed to it and you have to be accountable and not tell a lie. Worked for me tonite. emoticon

Cooking meals ahead

Today, I cooked up cabbage roll casserole, Rockin' Morrocan Stew and SP recipe for Keema. That's a lot of food for 2 people...but nice variety... But, after cooking, I portion many lunches up individually and freeze them. Nice variety of supper and pre-planned lunches too!

Watch your nutrients!

I track my food and was always way low on folate and magnesium. A dr. recently told me that low magnesium could be causing the pain in my arm. So, I am paying closer attention to how much magnesium I am including in my diet.

No more leftovers

We don't eat the :leftovers: after supper anymore. Since I started SP, I take an extra portable dish and dish up my lunch from the meal cooked for supper. Before we used to just eat them! Now, I have healthy portable meals, a variety and never have to buy out!
