Track It!

I write down every single purchase my husband or I make. Whether it is a big grocery shop, just a coffee or anything in between. I write it down and then enter it in a spreadsheet. It helps to know exactly what you are spending to make you realize if it's really worth making that purchase or not!

Frozen Purple Grapes

Package grapes in groups of about 15 in small sandwich bags and stick them in the freezer. Grab a bag when you want to snack or for breakfast in the morning. I can actually eat a bag of frozen graps with a slice of pepper jack cheese and a cup of green tea with lemon and feel totally satisfied.

Beat the craving!

All of us have crazy cravings, right? Well, I cave in almost daily, but after taking one small bite of that donut, or a handful of m&ms, when I am satisfied with the sweetness I toss the rest of it so I can't REALLY fall of the wagon. It also makes me feel great about my will power!

2nd shelf

Most closets have only one shelf above where the clothes hang. I measure the shelf, add brackets to hold it on both ends and depending on the length of the shelf a center support, if needed. You can only stack things so high and the added shelf lets you put seldom used items and use wasted space.

Log Your Food, Log Your Food, Log Your Food!!!

Logging my food every day is probably the most important thing I do on SparkPeople. It keeps me honest about what I'm eating. It also makes it very easy to look back and get menu planning ideas!

Plain Yogurt with granola

I have found that plain yogurt with this new healthy omega-3 granola that is 30% seeds and fruit it is made by Pres. Choice is a great sweet alternative for ice cream and other unhealthy snacks I used to eat. I let it sit in the fridge for a few hours and it becomes nice and thick.

Walking in the Rain

Who said to always stay indoors when it's raining? If there's no lightning, I say "Put on a raincoat and go for your walk". It feels wonderful, even if you get a little wet. And remember to splash in the puddles!
