The Special K Challenge

The challenge states that it call help you lose 6 pounds in 2 weeks. I took the challenge this month and lost 8 pounds. I really enjoyed the variety of Special K products on the plan: cereals, protein and snack bars, fruit crisps, crackers, waffles....the possiblities were limitless.

cravings solution: mashed potatoes

I keep single serving size portions of homemade mashed potatoes in the freezer for (carb)cravings. Potatoes, non-fat milk and some light margarine. Low calorie count(175) for cravings, nice craving abated feeling and even includes some protein(5g) and fibre(3.4g).

Shopping Service

My grocery store allows me to have a shopper. I make my list and e-mail it to my grocery store, pay for it and tell them when I am going to pick it up. It cost around $5.00 but I save so much more.

Menu Planning

I use a small calendar to menu plan for each month. I keep this in the kitchen near the pantry. I note ratings on my "new" recipes (keeper, etc).

Healthy Snacks

As soon as I bring home veggies from grocery shopping I cut them up into bite size pieces and put them in a clear container in the frig, top shelf front and center. Now my family has been grabbing the veggies more often then other snack foods.

Super Yummy Green Smoothies!

I make a green smoothie most mornings to give my fruit and veggie intake a kick start. Simple combinations of mildly flavored greens and delicious fruits can pack in as many as 5 or 6 servings in one go! These are scrumptious and portable. Don't let the color scare you :)

Load up your kitchen pantry with healthy food, snacks, veggies & frutis

I have made it impossible for myself to snack on unhealthy food by stocking my kitchen with ONLY healthy food. That way, I control what I eat at home besides it is a great motivating factor when I have to eat out where I remind myself that what I do at home cannot be undone elsewhere.

Eyeing the Measurements

Sometimes it's difficult to stop the meal in progress and say "Hey wait a minute while I grab my measuring cup!" so it's good to train yourself to memorize what a cup or a half cup of grains or peas etc. looks like, so you can make your best estimate when you sit down to a meal at home or at a restaurant.

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!
