Pre-measure coffee for an easier morning

I pre-measure coffee into filters and stack them on top of each other in an empty coffee can. When making coffee, I just grab a filter from the stack and go. I also have a can for decaf as well. It's amazing how much time I save. Those minutes here and there really add up.

Reuse those fruit/vegetable bags

Our grocery stores use those plastic bags for your fruit and vegetables, so I save them up and use them for the garbage scraps when chopping up food for meals. I simply slip them into an empty box already headed for the trash or a bowl I have sitting on the counter. When it's full, I toss it.

Honesty truely is the best policy!

Be honest with yourself! Sometimes I would take a few bites of something (cookies,cake,chocolate!) and the devil on my shoulder would tell me I don't need to write it down...luckily the angel on the other shoulder has become louder and I started to really hold myself accountable.

I always have water when I exercise. But I noticed that when I started doing the Leslie Sansone Walk Slim DVD { and it goes for 35 minutes},that I would get dehydrated because of the constant movement of interval training -walking. So, now when I am going to workout using that or any other DVD...

strawberries

I picked 14 quarts of strawberries, gave 4 to my daughter. Tonight I made 2 strawberry pies, 2 jars of jam, sliced some for cereal, and sugared a very big bowl to make strawberry pancake syrup tomorrow. I have about 50 more quarts to pick but it is raining. I'll make more jam and pies. Love them

Wii "Walk it Out" ~ A fun new way to get your walking in!

I recently purchased "Walk it Out" for Wii and what fun! You walk around Rhythm Island and earn chips with each step that you spend to decorate the island with trees, cars, streetlights, etc. Really cute and an hour of walking can go by in a snap!

Weight Loss Secret of Success - Work Smart, Not Hard

A secret to success for me has been maintaining a daily caloric intake LESS than what SP suggests. I don't do it on purpose but have found most often that I am not hungry enough to consume the 1400-1700 calories each day. This allows me to be a little more lazy with regard to exercise.
