mashed potatoes

I find mash potatoes to be very boring and tasteless, so when I cook them now I'll add a head of cauliflour and boil them together then mash them. Put them in a casserole dish sprinkled with cheddar and broil till the top is browned, Great flavor and everyone loves them. emoticon

minimize the cravings

When I get cravings for chips or cookies at the store I allow myself to purchase the 100 calorie bags of crackers and cookies or instead a big bag of chips I will buy the variety packs of chips because I know I will eat a whole big of Dorito's if they are in my cabinet.

Do what you love

It's very simple. Pick and do an activity that you love or think you might love. If you absolutely hate running, you are going to give it up. That's a sure thing. If you love running, nothing will make you stop. If you think you would love doing Yoga, go do it and see. It's that simple.

Vegetable tray in the Refrigerator

Instead of cleaning, cutting and bagging fresh produce, I make a colorful tupperware party tray. I fill each section with a different veggie: broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, zuccini...you get the picture.
Snap the top on and it is ready when you are. Bagged veggies go back in the drawer.

Cutting the Chocolate Craving

This works for me. There is a part of my brain that waits to tell me when I haven't met my chocolate requirement. It then SCREAMS "Eat chocolate now!" and that's when I take a super B's supplement or B 100's. It is safe and within the hour the screaming has stopped. Really!

Making water enjoyable

To keep water interesting and not so tasteless I'll add a slice of fresh lemon or orange. Any fresh fruit will work to add a hint of flavor.

Make mini goals and post 'em!

You know what you want to do. What are your ultimate goals? How are you going to get there? Sometimes they seem monumental. Set mini-goals. Weekly, monthly, or longer, and post them. Write them out in a blog, journal, or on paper and POST IT. Be accountable, check them off and be proud! You did it!!
