Secret Weapon: Almonds


My favorite snack, when I am starving and crabby, I find that if I eat about ten or twelve UNSALTED almonds, it is a great pick-me-up with only maybe 85 calories approximately...and it satisfies, plus it gives you some protein fuel. I pre-count them and put them in a little container .

Walking to lose weight

I never will park close to a store when I shop. I park a good distance from the entrance. Every bit of walking will help. Try it?

Track your food no matter what!

I always carry a small note pad and a pen in my purse. Since I do not have internet access 24/7 to track my food I use the notepad to at least write down what I ate. That way I can not forget anything or better yet lie to myself that "I haven't eaten anything all day".

BMR

It is important to know your basal metabolic rate. It is the number of calories you need to function each day at a minimal level. There is a spark article that will tell you how to calculate it. I was surprised at mine and it made me realize I have a few more calories to use each day .

Busy Mind

I am more or less a stay at home mom..work two hours a day; monday-friday. So I found myself eating because I got board. So what I do now is sewing projects. This helps me keep busy verses eating when I am board.
