Mantra

The other day I had to get ready for a special event. I looked through my closet and saw ALL the clothes I "grew out of".

I now have a mantra, "I need to wear those clothes."

I repeat that over & over & over & over & over & over when I'm tempted with something good.

Savor the sweet, eat less doing so

When I get a sweets craving I usually do this: I turn off everything that distracts, sit down comfy, and start to enjoy what I craved. Then as soon as I notice i'm not savoring each bite, just eating I stop. My craving is then satisfied and I don't need the whole thing.

Ways To Get In Your 8 Cups Of Water Daily

I make it a daily routine to drink one cup of water before and one cup after each meal(including snacks). Most days I have 3 main meals and 2 snacks therefore I have no problem getting in 8 cups of water per day. I average 10 to 12 cups per day.

whether this will work for everyone...my dad when he retired from the government decided to lose 40 pounds. instead of grueling workouts he resumed playing tennis a sport he loved as a young adult and any thing my mom made for him he would only eat half . two months later, he had lost 30 pounds. :)

Taking one room at a time

love crafting but was sitting in too much clutter to enjoy it. I decided to take 1 room at a time and gave myself a deadline. Toy room, bedrooms, kitchen/utility are done. I have thrown out over a dozen bags of junk and given a lot to charity. Nearly done I will relax with kids and do my crafts!

Save those coins!

This is a proverbial "oldie but goodie". Spend cash on items, when you can, and hold onto the change (coins) you get back. Count em out and roll em up over time. I just deposited $66.00 into the bank, using that towards paying principal on my car loan. It does help.

My Knees

I visualize me doing more things by loosing this weight and decreasing the pressure/stress that I have already put on my knees. "Baby steps"..slow and steady, if I mess up..no time to beat myself up about it.. get back on task.
