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.

Dont ruin it for yourself !

Instead of thinking "Oh I'm on a diet I have to starve myself or eat foods I dont like " Stop ! Eat everything you like within moderation and stick too it ! And make sure you have a treat once a week to celebrate your recent success and this will then motivate you to carry on your diet the next week...

Accountability

I have been motivated to run a half marathon by one of my SparkPeople friends. To make sure I follow through on this, I registered for the race next January and posted it all over Facebook. The more I tell people, the more I have to be held accountable for running in the race.

Chicken

My husband and I buy two cornish hens at Aldi's for around $2 or $3 dollars. I rub all kinds of yummy herbs on the outside and throw in the rotisserie. Not only is the fat running off as it cooks, but we have perfect portions without having to break down a whole chicken ourselves.

Keep a small piggy bank

I'm saving money. I do not want to spend bucks on things for myself, so I started tossing my change into a little piggy bank. Boy does that sum up at the end of the month. I usually always have a extra 10+ in there. That money I use to splurge myself without the guilt.
