Forgive myself

One of the things I used to do so much, and still do at times, is beat myself up over a mistake of whatever kind. I have to forgive myself and move forward. Beating myself up with only keep me in a self-defeating cycle.

Shopping Service

My grocery store allows me to have a shopper. I make my list and e-mail it to my grocery store, pay for it and tell them when I am going to pick it up. It cost around $5.00 but I save so much more.

Use Your Public Library

Your public library has a wealth of free information.
You'll save money by not buying books you might only read once and can purchase the "keepers" like The Spark emoticon emoticon after previewing them. Good for the environment and less clutter too.

Walk in Front of the TV

I used to think only big efforts counted toward weight loss, but I've found you don't always have to go to the gym to help you get to goal. Walking, dancing, and moving instead of sitting while you watch TV can make a real difference.

Menu Planning

I use a small calendar to menu plan for each month. I keep this in the kitchen near the pantry. I note ratings on my "new" recipes (keeper, etc).

Annual Salary Increase

My payroll department will take amounts off my cheque and deposit to an employee savings account for me. This year, when I got my increase, I up'd my savings by exactly the same amount. So far, I haven't missed a penny of it - seeing as how I wasn't used to getting it in the first place.

Healthy Snacks

As soon as I bring home veggies from grocery shopping I cut them up into bite size pieces and put them in a clear container in the frig, top shelf front and center. Now my family has been grabbing the veggies more often then other snack foods.

I trust myself so that I can be happy and lose weight.

I am a Flexatarian because I eat the foods that I really like even when it seems odd to others. When ever I start losing weight a few people that are gaining will give me constant advice. Which often made me doubt myself. But I have lost 8 inches in my waist over 3 months. emoticon

ignore the lazy girl/boy m-f

ignore the lazy person inside you that says to stay in your cave and remain a bear. do you want to remain in the shape of a bear? i thought not. so just robotically get up and do your cardio and think of it as brushing your teeth (something you need to do for your health and wellness, too).
