A dehydrator can help avoid food spoilage, extending your food budget.
Leftovers can be dehydrated in a matter of hours and then stored for later use. They resemble the processed foods we buy for convenience but don't have the same additives and fillers. It only takes a moment to add water and reheat for a quick meal.

I've been stuck in the same weight range for so long, but I just kept trying the same workouts. I just started working with a personal trainer and already I feel a difference! Get someone who knows their stuff to help you make a change!
It's a little expensive, but I am willing to invest now to start a strong foundation for a healthy life!
Even if you don't have a 401K, pay yourself first. Take out 6% (or whatever you are comfortable with) and invest in a CD or something. Do it with every paycheck and then rollover that CD when it comes to term.
Talk to a banker or financial advisor before doing any investing.
I avoided running at ALL costs (even when I was 110 pounds and 14 years old.) I hated the out of breath feeling, but I started a 5 training program to increase my endurance, and guess what.... I actually like running. I'm not out in freezing temps or the rain I'm not THAT into it, but I like my treadmill or a short trail walk/run. I never thought I would, but once I learned HOW, and accepted it was a process I have loved it.
I highly recommend investing in shoes (something I didn't believe when I first started.) Take it from my knee injury before I made the investment, the proper shoes MAKE THE DIFFERENCE! Go to a running store and invest a little in them, they will take you far and save you a TON of pain!
