Sore Throat Remedy

I hate a sore throat. You know the kind where you can't even swallow? Well I found a remedy that is both remarkably dependable and remarkably gross! Take about a cup of lukewarm water and add a tablespoon of cayenne pepper. Mix with spoon. Then gargle with it every 15 minutes.

Filling up on food, without filling up on calories

I take plenty of salad and fruit to work for lunch and fill up on this. It gives me energy during the day and doesnt fill me up too long and keep my sluggish. By the time my evening meal comes I can eat a nice portion and still feel full, without over eating.

Plan and Pack

Plan and pack your daily foods and take them with you to work! Whatever is packed is what you eat that day. You don't have to try to figure out what you can eat next!
Planning, packing, sticking to it...makes you healthier!

Portable Water Cooler!

I have a 44 ounce insulated mini cooler. First thing in the morning I fill it up with water and lots of iceand then again after lunch. It keeps the water cold and is more convienent than running upstairs 8-10 times a day! Makes sure I get my water in and keeps it cold all day!

Tall, Slim glass

I use tall, slim glasses instead of the shorter glasses. These look nice, hold the same or less liquid, and give you a sense of drinking more of your favorite beverage. They also slow down your drinking. You will have less of a tendency to "wash down" your food this way.

Meditate: It's Great!

Meditating relaxes my mind and my body. After 30 minutes of stillness I feel great. Better than any massage.

Water at meal time?

It is best to have your water or drink at least 30 mins before your meal. This will help you digest your meal much better.
