Read even the Healthy Food ingredient lists, SNEAKY Food industry!

Be sure to read all packaged food labels. The food industry is sneaky with the chemicals and word replacements. Soy and sugar replacements seem to be in everything!

Even the healthiest “packaged” foods can shock you. READ every label. The food industry can be SNEAKY!!

Vision Board & GOALS

I "vision collaged" my back of the door mirror, this way I "SEE" it all the time!!! Everyday, sometimes several times a day! Foods, Exercises, Physically fit bodies, places I want to go and things I want to do!! Anything that is something to strive for or look forward to I put it on the edge of that mirror. SO when I do that one last check in the mirror before I sweep out the door I know what I want in LIFE!!! EVerything I want to live for is there: Prayer, Familiy, Friends.Healthy Lifestyle!

If you eat it, and you don't need it, it's still a waste!

When I was little it was "eat everything on your plate!" Now my Mom says "if you don't need it... put it in a container and save it for later!" I actually did this when I was living with a host family that served us. I would save the extra food that I didn't need and eat it the next morning for breakfast or the next afternoon for lunch. Saves a lot of calories and it saves preparing another meal (or at least part of one)! Good luck and good eating!

Off the couch, on the floor..

Determined to stay off the couch in the evening after a long day and exercise, I found if I sit on the floor I end up doing all my Calisthenics, yoga poses and stretching, while hanging with hubby and enjoying our tv show.

Review and Tweak the Plan~

Whenever i'm getting off track or even when i'm feeling a little bored I look over my old blogs. Almost all of them give me a more positive perspective or solutions to what I want to tweak or change. Should I not feel more empowered or motivated to a new direction then I hit some of my SP friends blogs.

1/2 that portion...Break
fast,
Lunch, Dinner

Half that portion! I half the portion of whatever i'm about to eat. If it can't be halved without wasting part then I don't eat it Example: Sandwich you can half & save for later...cookie you would have to share if a person is available or throw the half away if you have no one to share it with. IF I would have to waste it then I don't eat it. Planning!
Don’t be a gingerbread woman, be a ROCKSTAR!

Use your leftovers!

It sounds silly, perhaps, but I wonder if we really know how much money we throw away with the leftovers each week. I started making a concerted effort to use every bit of food that is in the fridge. Whether restaurant or home leftovers and I found I was stretching 4 more meals, at least, by either reheating or using them in another way. I think we take how much food we have for granted sometimes.

Go green to wash the greens

Sew a drawstring bag from two kitchen towels. When you wash your lettuce, you can put it in the bag and shake so that the towels absorb the moisture. The towel bag can be washed and recycled. Use this for washing grapes too! emoticon emoticon

Baby Carrots - How They Came To Be

Baby carrots were "invented" buy a guy who was on a road trip and saw piles and piles of orange on the side of the road. When he got closer, he saw that they were carrots. He asked the farmer what was going on and the farmer said they were trash since they wouldn't sell at market. (See more info)
