Start the day with a smile

The easiest way for me to do this is to be kind to the morning cafeteria workers who swipe me in; they become so happy that someone is being sincere and kind, that it just makes me bubble over with happiness and makes it impossible to not start the day happy!

Eat within your calorie range to save money!

If you eat within your calorie range, you will save money. If you eat 200 + calories more per day than you should, you could be using those calories the next day instead. If you do this each day, by the end of the week, you'd have 1400 plus extra eaten calories--the cost of another day's eating!

TV Time used wisely

I keep a 2 lb. dumbbell by where I sit. While I'm watching shows, I use it! There are really a lot of arm exercises you can do while sitting.

Consistency IS KEY

Someone exercising 20 minutes a day will see better results than someone who slogs it out for 2 hours 2 days per week, it has taken me years to figure that out.

Sustainable Weight Loss

Sustainable weight loss means making lifestyle changes that can be done for life. Itís moderation in eating & exercising. Diet is a quick fix that fails over time; lifestyle changes get you there & keep you there. No more yo-yo cycles.

Extra money goes into online savings

When I receive extra checks, such as reimbursement or other refund checks, I put them directly into my online savings account. I benefit by saving the money rather than spending it and by earning a higher interest rate than my local bank. Those small checks add up quickly and so does the interest!

Foot Power

I don't use a car unless what I need is in another city.Even then, I can usually find another way. I walk to mass transit and carry reusable bags and a backpack everywhere I go. This way, I can get a workout and do all errands without leaving much of a carbon footprint. I shop for just what I need.
