This app is 99 cents for my iphone, it helps me eat slowly and also helps me to see how much I am eating each meal, for the whole day and over a 90 day period! Well worth the money, and it is helping me stay on track!
I have been using True Lemon & Lime products for the past several years now!! They are my "Go To" products for flavoring my water every day. They are simply dehydrated lemon, or lime, with no artificial sweeteners or other ingredients. They have several other products out there that are great too. I use the True Lime for my home-made salsa and almost all of my Mexican influenced meals!! I love these products and just wanted to share them with anyone looking for a change!!!
I've had this juicer for several years but wasn't using it. Recently with the popularity of juicing I was considering getting one of the new popular ones and remembered that I had this one. I am so glad I didn't get a new one. This one is really awesome, very powerful and easy to use and clean. I saw one in the store today for the same price I paid and the same design. They haven't changed a thing and I'm glad because it works GREAT!
Absolutely love this product! Easy to use, easy to clean and performs as it says. My old slow cooker used to heat unevenly and would burn on one side if you didn't keep an eye on it. In the ninja, you can brown your meat in the same pot and then set to slow cook. you can also put the same pot in the fridge. Love it!
Endomondo is a free app for Android keeps track of workouts. I use it mainly for walking and bike riding but there are many different categories from indoor biking & treadmill to sports like surfing and tennis. You can join challenges, create a training plan follow routes and make friends! It keeps a history of all activities so you can review them quickly.
Along with my Nike+ Sport Kit and iPod, I never head out for a run without my RoadID. In case of an accident, first responders are able to reach family and also learn vital facts by simply glancing at an engraved tag. Peace of mind for all concerned! You may carry other types of identification on your workouts - and if you don't, you should - but I thought I'd share this link in case anyone is interested. www.roadid.com
I changed to this water additive because I got sick of adding 2 of the True Lemon packets to each 16.9oz bottle of water. These I only have to add one per bottle and the flavors are great! My favorite is wild berry- pomegranate, it's a good replacement for loganberry pop. But all of them that I have tried so far are good. They are usually cheaper than the other brands, too.
I recently purchased a Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blender.
I have a hard time curbing my "hunger" unless I have 1 slimfast meal shake per day. I usually eat a piece of fruit with them to have something solid in my stomach too. I drink one at lunch and it really helps me. My personal favorite are the cappuccino delight flavored shakes.
