My Grandma use to keep a bucket on her counter. She cooked healthy all day long. When she had waste from fresh veg, fruit or eggshells she would put it in the bucket. Later, she'd take it outside and spread it around a tree or garden where both flora & fauna would enjoy it.
Bonus ~ it cuts down on stinky, yucky, garbage cans & doesn't add to our landfills. :)

You know you can burn calories while gardening, I have always found gardening to be my happy medium. Where else can you dig a hole and stuff all your angry, negative feelings and disappointments of your day and watch something beautiful bloom/come from it. You can also help your environment as well by given back what so many of us take from nature. I love the satisfaction and enjoy the results of my labor and burned calories by the results I get year after year. Plus all the wildlife it attracts.

I'm sure everyone's had days when they've 'cheated'. It's easy to say I messed up and give up all together. I've done it myself a few times. If you find yourself feeling guilty after over indulging in a favorite snack, scrap the guilt, count the calories, and move on. Every day starts off with a clean slate, and every meal is an opportunity to start over. So scrap the guilt, and jump back on the road to good health bandwagon!306
