snack secret

I've always loved to snack, and recently my physician advised me to eat 2-3 snacks a day in addition to 3 light regular meals. Whoopee! But how to keep the calories in check? I've learned to prepare 50- calorie snacks of my favorite healthy snack foods ahead of time. Just now, I ate a 30-calorie slice of light cheese. Tonight I'm looking forward to my homemade 50-calorie trail mix baggie right before turning out the lights. And my favorite is barley mixed with sugar free strawberry syrup. Yum!

Wake Up and Do Exercises

I use YouTube to follow to specific exercisers: Leslie Sansone and various Pilates practices. I shower and return to be for 2 hrs. This is also the best sleep of the night.

Secret Account

I set up a secret account in a bank that is to far for me to go to. This bank is also smaller and has better interest rates. When I have extra cash I take it to that bank (to keep it active).

First Track Then Eat

Before eating use your Spark Tracker to find out the nutritional numbers and know the calories you are about to consume. If the numbers are too high then make a different, healthier choice.

Make a challenge of an outing

When I do errands or going to the store, park a little distance from where you want to go and walk. That helps my heart, my muscles tone up and helps my whole body. Sometimes I get short of breath but so, maybe I stop and make like I'm adjusting my shoe or something. I know people that park as close as they can even illegally and then pay to work out in a gym
