Reinforcing the Positive

I count my exercise time as one of my special goals "do one thing for me every day". Checking that goal box and putting the note in as to what it is reminds me why I am on this journey - to become a better me!

Clip Those Coupons!

Most grocery stores coordinate sales with coupons that are available in the Sunday paper or on websites like coupons.com. Wholesale clubs like BJ's allow you to combine their coupons with manufacturing coupons. ( Just buy things you'll use- no one wants a pantry full of expired cans of "veg-all".

Fiber One Cottage Cheese

At 80 calories, 2 grams of fat and 5 grams of fiber this is a great product! In weight watching terms it is 1 pt versus 2 (for other light cottage cheese products) for a 1/2 cup serving. Love it with fresh pineapple or blueberries!

burning calories

I add extra cardio/exercise by (no choice) parking far away at the parking lot at work AND instead of taking the elevator always use the stairs and try to go up them quickly when I can.

Pay yourself FIRST

Every pay check or any payment you get you should set aside 10% into a savings account you don't touch. Save it for true emergencies only. This way, your savings will grow and hopefully you'll be living within your means.

Hard boiled eggs

I hard boil eggs a dozen at a time and keep them separate from the other eggs, so I don't mix them up.

They keep for a long time and I can grab one quickly and peel and eat rather than another more high calorie snack.

Brush your teeth for better health!

Proper brushing of your teeth can protect you from many illnesses, including heart disease. Inflamation and infection in the mouth can travel throughout the body and cause many problems. I recently learn to brush and floss properly and it's made a world of difference!

Me, Myself and I

I do the exercise and the eating healthy for me. I stay focused on me even though it benefits my family. Sometimes we need to be #1 in our lives.

Cardio Blast

I can really advice you all to purchase Coach Nicole's DVD's. In 15 minutes you have a nice workout at any fitness level. You can also combine workouts so you can easily turn it into 30-60 minutes of good exercise.
