Think and ACT like a Skinny Person

Skinny people eat in moderation, exercise and are active. It isn't about depriving yourself of every pleasure in life... live your life like a skinny person and you will soon be one!

Another Water Tip

Buy several refillable water bottles (I prefer the stainless steel myself.) Keep at least four full of water in the refrigerator to have on hand. Then there are no excuses for not having time to get water before leaving the house; just grab a bottle and go. Good for the environment too!

cardio does it

I feel I get more out of my workout when I do cardio. I do about 30 to 60 minutes of cardio exercise a day. Then I focus on the strength training and abs.

Getting Your 8 glasses of water

I purchased a new 32 ounce water bottle and Pur water filter from Walmart. I do not buy sodas for my family and everyone drinks Crystal Light, even the kids. I fill my cute little pink water bottle full of crystal light and carry it everywhere. It's my new best friend. By afternoon, I have my 64!

Salsa Instead of Salad Dressing

I substiute salsa for salad dressing alot of days. 2 Tbsp of Salsa only has about 15 calories. This is 25% the calories found in many fat-free varieties of dressing and an even smaller fraction of the calories in regular dressing. Fewer to no additives either depending on the type you buy.

Only carry cash and pay yourself allowance

We have a spending plan (budget). On payday, I go to the bank and get certain budget categories out in cash: food, clothes, allowance, fun, gifts and haircuts. Having a plan and using cash is huge! And, allowance for grown-ups (we call it "mad money") helps to keep adult wants in check too.
