Dog Wipes

Many dogs, and cats for that matter, need constant cleaning around their eyes and/or mouth. Soft shop towels are fantastic to use to gently clean these areas. Just tear the amount required (no sense wasting a whole towel on a small animal), moisten with warm water, wipe.

Gentle for the pet and you can just throw it away. Makes sanitary sense to me!

Available at auto shops. Usually less expensive than the big stores that they are also available in.

Dealing With Stress

On those days that I can't get to the pool to swim or I don't have the time to do a whole exercise video (or other circumstances prohibit) I can usually find 10 minutes to take the dog for a walk. It gets me outside ( which is also a mood lifter), I walk faster than if I don't have the dog, and I get in a minimum of 10 minutes of exercise.

Removing Snow off Vehicle

Try using a wooly dust mop to remove snow off of your vehicle. Floor mops have long handles and the wool won't scratch paint like some shovels. Added benefit...a cleaner mop!

My Stress Buster

No more emotional eating! When I am stressed I have learned to rely on my journal. By writing the start of my stress out I am able to problem solve the issue instead of eating.

Purse Safety

Do you ever place your purse in the empty baby carrier of the shopping cart? Take an extra minute to loop and fasten the baby safety strap thru your purse strap. Now you can take your time reading those nutrition labels and give your arms and shoulder a rest. If a thief decides to grab your purse, he will have to run away with the cart as well!! ;)

chocolate cravings

I have learned that if I allow myself a small piece of chocolate at lunch time, this tempers my chocolate cravings. I buy the individually wrapped dark chocolates. I like Dove the best, but I usually get what ever is on sale. This keeps my cravings at bay!

Meal Times

I found that eating with a smaller plate helped for awhile. Now I have gone down another plate size, small glass and kids' silverware. emoticon
