Great Breakfast Idea

Cottage cheese with cut up strawberries mixed in it. Get your fruit and dairy at very few calories and it is really good.

Keep the Water Coming

Every time I empty my 8 oz. glass of water, I refill it right away. Then it's sitting on the counter conveniently reminding me to have more every time I pass by, and I find it easier to drink a whole glassful if it isn't quite refrigerator cold.

Track Your Exercise Before You Work Out

I usually work out in the afternoon, so I track my work out in the Fitness Tracker when I log on to SparkPeople first thing in the morning. It keeps me accountable for doing my work out even on the days when it's the last thing I want to do. Plus it's motivation to see how many calories I'll burn.

Watch the Sodium!!

Use the nutrition tracker and add sodium to track and keep it under 2000 mg a day....you'll be surprised at how you change your food choices to fit the sodium requirements.
It will force you to eat more natural foods like fruits and veggies! Stay away from processed foods....You'll feel better!

Blessings Book

Take time each day to write at least one blessing in your life. At the first sign of disappointment in yourself or 'letting the buzzards get you down', grab your blessings book. Slowly read each blessing aloud. You will renew your perspective that life is better than your emotions are allowing.

Photograph BP Monitor

My BP Monitor stores my daily blood pressure readings, but when it comes time to transcribe them to paper to show the Dr. it scrolls through too fast.
Recently I've been using the digital camera to photograph the date and reading. I can take my time getting them on paper then.
