Never let the water glass sit empty. I find that If I have my water or unsweetened green tea glass sitting around me I naturally keep drinking. As soon as it's empty, even if you don't feel thirsty that moment, refill it. You'll get those 8 glasses in before you know it!
i've been saying i'm going to workout forever...the hardest part for me is actually getting to the gym or doing it. My encouragement is just get up and do it...even if it's 5 minutes/day ... you'll be proud of yourself and motivation from within is the strongest kind out there.

Ask for a 10 year mortgage when purchasing or re-financing. You pay about $1 in interest for every $1 in principal on a 15 year note and $2 in interest for every $1 in principal on a 30 year note. The shorter your payment period, the lower the final cost.
I tried this out the other day and I am addicted! You do real dance moves to fun music (current and older). I danced for 10 songs (took about 30-40) and I burned 325 cal according to my HRM. It didn't feel like exercise!

Did you know that besides calories, carbs, fats and protein your Nutrition tracker can track almost ANY vitamin and mineral you consume? And when you are done tracking for the day your Nutrition Feedback Report will contain the info about these vitamins and whether you had enough of them or not!!
There are reams and reams of reports about High Fructose Corn Syrup. I only know what's worked for me. As soon as I my husband and I started cutting it out (about a year ago), we started to lose weight (don't go by my ticker, I just joined SparkPeople).
the secret to my feeling better and losing weight is walking simple really it boots endorphens and seratonin levels and it also helps you get into shape and lose weight of course you also have to eat right too i believe in portion control first and foremost
I love bright colors & black clothes, but I don't like seeing them fade and get dull. What I do is on the first wash, I put the new garment in the washer with 1 cup of white vinegar. This sets the dye and prevents fading. You can but don't have to use detergent--it's all about setting the dye.
