Baking

I love to bake and I substitute everything I can and still have great taste. I will use egg whites for most of the eggs, applesauce for 1/2 the oil and splenda for 1/2 of the sugar. I also use mini chocolate chips and use less.

When you really need a sweet treat

I mix 1/2 a container of low-cal strawberry yogurt & mix it with 2-3 Tbs of fat-free whipped cream and add sliced bananas. You can also add cheerios or granola. emoticon

The wonder spice!

Cinnamon is so cool! I have high blood sugar, and no med care to help. Cinnamon has helped to bring my BS down some, and I feel much better.

Quick walks

During the work day, instead of trying to fit in a long walk, I take 2-15 minute walks. Helps relieve stress and makes me more productive.

Don't leave home without snacks and water.

Whenever I leave the house for any reason, I think about how long I will be away and if I think I will be hungry or thirsty during that time. Then I bring healthy snacks and always carry a water bottle with me. I use a refillable water bottle and always have it wherever I go.

Talking to a Police Officer

Last night I was stopped by a police officer. While searching for my registration, I placed my a small corner of my driver's license in mouth. The officer was angry that I did that and asked that I wiped the license before giving it to him. So, don't place your license in your mouth.

Round Up!

When entering debits or checks written into your register, round up to the next nearest whole dollar - over the course of many transactions, you'll find yourself socking away hundreds of dollars a few never-missed cents at a time! I have saved about $500 dollars in two years!

Green Cleaning

I use white vinager to clean just about everything. I keep a spray bottle with 1/2 vinager and 1/2 water. I use it to wash windows, floors, bathrooms, laundry, and carpet stains. it is a great sanitizer and deodorizer. the vinager smell will go away. Baking soda and vinager help clean drains.

Strength & Cardio at the same time!!

I made a goal to walk to my local shops and to the school & pre-school instead of driving the car. As I have a baby too I have found it great exercise pushing the pram, especially up hills. My little girl (4 y.o.) likes to hang on to the safety strap & I usually end up dragging her up hills too LOL.
