Water water water

I drink half of my weight in water, I have found I am not really hungry most of the time but lacking in water so I make sure to drink at least half my weight in pure refreshing water.

letting the kids help meal plan

I usually ask my kids ages 4 and 10 what they want to have when I am making up the weekly menu. They are already very knowledgeable to making healthy choices. I figure if I ask them what they want then it is all around a win win situation.

Weight Loss Blues

If I feel cruddy about lack of weight loss, I remember how far I have come by picking up something that weighs the same amount as my loss. The gallon of milk reminds me actually how heavy five pounds can be and so on. emoticon

Whole Food Smoothies

Whole food blenders (like Vita-Mix) helped me make delicious healthy breakfasts and completely killed my sugar cravings. They're a bit pricey but totally worth it!

Buddy Up

emoticon Having a partner to exercise, create meals, and to bounce my successes and failures off, helps me stay positive even when things are not going as I would like them. Even a long distance partner is good because you can SKYPE one another. I love that I have my sister as my partner.

Ask... Be Heard

When eating out, ask how the food is prepared. I'm not afraid to ask for substitutions, even when they say no substitutions. Pick out two or three dishes before hand so you have an alternative. I've had little problem getting what I want prepared how I need it prepared.

wear running shoes

Put on your running shoes when you are doing housecleaning. This always makes me feel like doing things faster, harder and with more stretching, squats lunges etc snuck into my cleaning.

save dollars

I work at a cash register and whenever I come in for the day and see dollar coins, I buy them from the store. I don't spend them. They go home with all my other change.
I won't cash them in until I am desperate for bill money usually but, I am saving for next year's honeymoon this time!
