Me First

I have a savings account, and money goes in every time I get paid. Over time, I've increased the amount I deposit. The real trick is to save more than you think you can. After saving for years but not having as much as I thought I should, I challenged myself to save a certain amount from every paycheck - no matter what.

When you have savings to fall back on, you don't worry about paying your bills. Less stress leads to a happier life.

Asian Hot Pot is easy to do at home

I like that Asian hot pot means you can eat for hours and nibble on small pieces of food, and large veggie portions and the leftovers are soup for lunches.

The hot pot pan was only $40 at my asian market that also sells the specially sliced shabu-shabu meats.

Nutritious and frugal

Drink a glass of water first.

When you're feeling hungry and are fighting the urge to snack, go drink a glass of water. Wait 10-20 minutes, and if you're still hungry, go eat a healthy snack. If the water filled you up, you just saved yourself some calories.

cocoa/chocolate packets- use half- and save the rest for later in the day!

I discovered Carnation Instant Breakfast packets at the gym when they gave them away for free in the locker room. I happened to have a 16.9 oz bottled water and shook it up on my way to my car. I felt great after! I only buy two boxes/year. One of the variety pack and one lower sugar. So... when i'm below my goal of 6 cups of water/day- i mix half a packet and the water is down in a minute and I'm saving 1/2 the calories. I personally think we pee out most the added nutrients.

Kitchen Workout!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!

If you cook wearing your work out clothes; you'll be less likely to keep on tasting; therefore saving calories. Sounds silly and it may just be. But it works. lol
Plus it also may remind you to squeeze your booty muscles! emoticon

Key Elements: Food Tracking, Water, Exercise, and Sleep

Food tracking by reading the actual calorie and nutrition content and staying in your calorie range for your body. Real food is real fuel for the body. Water, what the body is mostly made of. can be depleted if not replaced. It can't move the nutrients properly. Exercise strengthens and prepares the body for rest. Sleep lets the body regenerate for the next day's work. All four elements are key to healthy weight loss.

Make your own mother yogurt starter

If you make your own yogurt, you probably spend a pretty piece of change on a yogurt starter that has to be replenished pretty quickly. Well you can make your own yogurt starter that will last at least a year from chili pepper stems.

Freshly ground peanuts won't separate for months.

I noticed when I bought freshly ground peanut butter at Whole Foods that it didn't separate at all. So I finally let a small bit sit and see how long it takes to separate -- 4 months. The moral of the story is to buy it freshly ground when possible. I've found cheaper places than Whole Foods. emoticon
