Cutting the Clutter

I am gradually getting rid of things we do not need. Each month I get a phone call for Services for the Blind telling me when the donation truck will be in our area. I mark it on my calendar so I do not forget. I keep a box in my bedroom and one in my craft room to put items in as I find things .

One day at a time

At the beginning of the month I mark a calendar with just one chore to do each day. Such as eat an apple, read a health article, walk for 20 minutes, etc. I do it with 2 friends, we give everything a point value and we each pay $5.00 whoever gets the highest points wins and they must buy something

Distraction

When I feel like I really need something to eat and I want to wait until mealtime, I call someone on the phone that I enjoy talking to. It really helps to distract me so that I wait until mealtime to eat.

Omron Pedometer - Takes a lickin and keeps on tickin!

I love this little gadget! It definitely motivates you to get up and move. I wear it daily (it resets itself at midnight) and every week download the info to my computer so I can see at a glance how I am doing. It went through the washer last week and still works... One tough little gadget!

Kitchen Sponges

If you're like me, you use your kitchen sponges for more than just dishes. To easily disinfect them, put them in the microwave for 60 seconds. Just be careful when removing them from the microwave. It will be hot!

Something on Hand

When I know I'll be out and about in my car during the day shopping or meetings or such, I try to plan ahead by bringing a piece of fruit or turkey jerky, maybe a low fat granola bar or nuts.

Commuting to work by bike

Even though I run, swim, road bike, ski, and walk the dogs for long sessions, I get the major chunk of my exercise doing one thing: commuting back and forth from work on my bike all year--8 minutes one way--4 times a day--once in the morning, back and forth at lunch, back home in the evening.
