See it, do it.

Putting my extra bedding up this morning, I stepped up on a stool to put a blanket away. Stepping down, I decided that felt good, so why not do a few more. That got 30 reps of stair steps done in just minutes in the course of my day. Later, while waiting on eggs to cook, I did some squats. A lot of my best exercise comes when I see a short opportunity, and step up to it.

snack secret

I've always loved to snack, and recently my physician advised me to eat 2-3 snacks a day in addition to 3 light regular meals. Whoopee! But how to keep the calories in check? I've learned to prepare 50- calorie snacks of my favorite healthy snack foods ahead of time. Just now, I ate a 30-calorie slice of light cheese. Tonight I'm looking forward to my homemade 50-calorie trail mix baggie right before turning out the lights. And my favorite is barley mixed with sugar free strawberry syrup. Yum!

Wake Up and Do Exercises

I use YouTube to follow to specific exercisers: Leslie Sansone and various Pilates practices. I shower and return to be for 2 hrs. This is also the best sleep of the night.

Secret Account

I set up a secret account in a bank that is to far for me to go to. This bank is also smaller and has better interest rates. When I have extra cash I take it to that bank (to keep it active).
