3 PM Hunger

Every day at 3 pm, I feel hungry. Some days I save a part of my lunch and other days I eat whatever I can get my hands on. A few weeks ago I discovered that a green apple and a bottle of water is just as satisfying.

Dorm room cleaning

When my dorm room gets out of control and quite a bit messy, putting on good tunes while I clean makes me more inclined to not only just clean, but more inclined to dance while I clean, which adds some cardio to my day, and makes cleaning fun!

individual packets

If you divide large packs of crackers, pretzels, or chips into snack-size bags (about 1 cup each) you'll be less apt to overeat.

Better Than Peanut Butter

I love peanut butter and I have tried living without it, but it was hard. I had been finding other alternatives for the food I love, but I was having a hard time finding a pb swap until I discovered Better Than Peanut Butter. Its fantastic and tastes EXACTLY like peanut butter. 2 TBSP = 100 cals!

Live within seams, live within means

I decided to pack my lunch everyday during Lent (40 day habit changer). I have lost weight and saved money. Extra money will be going to food pantry at church.

Put the brakes on a bad mood

When I feel stormclouds of frustration entering my mind, I purposefully and mindfully bring back the sunlight by stopping whatever I'm doing, and taking a quick stretch or walk break. A simple trip to the most-distant water fountain in the building can shake off the negativity!

no clean-up for slow cooker

I just love the new Reynolds slow cooker bags. I put one in my slow cooker every time I use it. Once the meal is done you simply pull out the bag throw it away. No more soaking or scrubbing of your slow cooker.

Dip your fork in your salad dressing.

Helps you to eat less dressing. Still get the taste of the dressing, get to taste more of the salad, and less calories. :)

Minimize the negativity

I have never been a positive person. Lately, I have been focusing on the positive things that have occurred since beginning my healthy lifestyle instead of the negative. This has profoundly changed my outlook in life in general, not just with weight loss and healthy living.

Time to Lose

I did not gain all the weight I want to lose overnight so I should not expect to lose it overnight. It will take time and the older I am, could impact the speed at which I lose.
