Notice your surroundings; you'll feel better about yourself

When you "observe intently" God's creation, and get close to nature, you will begin to notice a change in yourself. For me, Nothing makes me more positive during "tough times". I handle things differently when I am in this mood.

Automatic savings

I have money taken directly out of my checking account on the day I get paid and deposited into a savings account in another town. That way it is harder to get to and spend on things I don't really need.

Laundry Soap

Laundry Soap manufacturer's bank on the fact that people FOLLOW directions. If you read the bottle, it says to use 1 cap full for a large load.

I use half a cap in a large load and my clothes still smell fresh and are cleaned. It saves a lot of money too.

Wipe Clean!

I keep packets of antibacterial cleaning wipes around the house (in the bathroom and kitchen), when I see something that needs cleaning I get it straight away so it's not one huge job to clean up each week. Very handy with a 15 month old running around!!

Do Abs and strength first!

Unless your doing circuit training or a specific dvd, do your abs/core exercises first, then your strength, and then cardio LAST!
Why: Because you'll put everything into the strength/ab exercises if you do them first. Your muscles will not be as tired, and it will reduce the likelihood of injury.

Breakfast & Planned Snacking

Eating a healthy breakfast keeps me on track the rest of the day. Because I start off full I don't overeat later.

I also plan a morning & afternoon snack. I fill/take a small personal collapsible cooler with the snacks I can have for the day. I can eat anything inside...guilt free!
