Have a look at your sparkpage

What have you written? Do you get a negative feel, as in "Ive never been able to lose weight..", "Im always letting myself down" etc. Change all those words into positives! For example "I know I can lose weight and I will" Because your time is now.

Quick airfreshener

Boil some water in a pan and add spices (cinnamon, cloves or whatever you prefer, maybe lemon peel..?) Let it simmer and instantly your whole house smells lovely. When I did this the first reaction I had from my sister in law was "Mmm, have you been baking?"

Add weight to your stroller/pram

For extra resistance, add some weights under your pram when youre out walking. Filled water bottles for example. Maybe put them in a bag if you dont want people to think you transport water somewhere every day..

Move things in your kitchen!

For that extra little exercise, move the cups and everyday items you need often a bit higher up or lower down in the cupboards or further away from the kettle etc. for extra exercise! Same goes for toothbrushes and other things.

Low calorie pasta sauce

with lots of hidden vegetables if your kids are fussy. Tinned tomatoes, peppers, onion, garlic, thyme, grated carrot, and seasoning. Mix it straight in the saucepan. Endless varities on vegetables and spices, add what you like. Last time I had cinnamon in, was yum. This also works as a sauce for meats.

Are you living your life on "pause"?

Well, that is motivation enough! Life is passing us by, we must enjoy it with or without extra weight on our bodies, although some things might be easier without all those pounds. So, go out and live, and the pounds might just give up their attempts of growing on you. A rolling stone gathers no moss ;-)

Put cheap shampoo in "expensive" bottles

Especially if you have a fussy teenager around.. and same goes for washing up liquid and things, if you are concerned about what others will think.

Second hand or home made Christmas presents/Birthd
ay
gifts

This year I thought as a challenge- being inspired by going green and saving money - to only give second hand or home made Christmas presents. For example I have a couple of lovely glasses I dont need, I can fill them up with home made fudge and give away.. If you have kids you have plenty of time until Christmas to find what they want on ebay or similar places.
