Shop the perimeter of the grocery store!

Stick to the perimeter of the grocery store when shopping. You get your fruits and veggies, meat, eggs, juice, healthy breads, etc and skip all that processed food that is loaded with salt and other preservatives! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Share a Trainer with Friends

Sharing the cost of a trainer makes it affordable to have personalized attention. Plus you won't miss a work out because you won't to waste the money you've already paid on the trainer. Friends waiting for you keeps you accountable to show up (and accountable when out together at restaurants).

combining the sales with the coupons

I use several websites to help me plan but I use coupons combined with the sales of the week. Grocery stores run on 6-12 week cycles and I hold my coupons until the item is on sale. Also Kroger and Publix do double coupons up to 50 cents.You can also stack a store and manufacturers coupon together.

Daily destressing vitally important!

emoticon most people come home with some degree of stress @ the end of their day. I've found that it is just as important to destress from your day as it is to breathe. My way is to watch my aquarium for 20 minutes without any outside interference and spa music playing - very effective!

No Rules

I'm one of those people who somehow must find a way around every rule. The more I am not supposed to do something the more I want to do it. That mindset goes triple for food. So I don't have food rules. I eat what I want as long as I'm not allergic to it.
