I have a control Journal which came from the fly lady plan. In the journal I keep my budgets, to do list, shopping list, menu plans, and other helpful information. I decorated it with all my favorite motivational quotes and it keeps me going. Decorating it makes it more fun to carry around and all information I need to remain focused and accountable are in it.

The British Journal of Nutrition found those who ate peanut butter for breakfast had a smaller rise in blood sugar than a control group not given the PB. They said...PB reduces blood sugar jumps by slowing the bod's absorption of carbs. Portion control is the key. It is heart healthy and does not have artery clogging fats. Enjoy A slater on apple slices for breackfast..try Skippy's new Dark Chocolate PB for a treat....go for it.
I love to write and anybody who knows me knows I keep many journals. One I keep is called a Humour Journal, another a Blessings Journal and a Happy Journal. They sound similar but are different. When I am feeling down I pick up one of these and flip through my entries and it picks my mood up.
Humour Journal is where you write things that make you laugh; Blessings is where you write down ALL you can think of you are blessed with; Happy Journal is a place to write down the thinngs, people etc., that cause happiness. Writing them down preserves the memory & lifts you when you feel down.
