Greek Dressing

You can add creaminess to a salad by pureeing a cucumber and some Greek or plain yogurt together. Add a little olive oil for a healthy fat. If it is still a little thick add a splash of lowfat milk. Let this "rest" at least an hour. You may add herbs, as well, but with flavorful veg underneath you may not need any.

Looking Back at Polls You've Taken

Looking back at a poll you have already taken will let you know when you took it and how you responded. I've come across some I did a year or more ago and realized that my answer now would not be the same. In many cases it's a glimpse to baby step achievements. emoticon

Happy Sparking!

Know Your Trigger Points

Knowing what foods and/or situations can set you up for a binge is helpful. Make a list of those things and come up with a strategy that will enable you to head off the next attack. Having a great defense in place will make your journey easier and easier.

Penny a point; Quarter for each 30 minute workout!

After tallying up the day's spark points I get out my mason jar and put in the equivalent amount of change (penny per point) into it. Better than a piggy bank - I can watch it add up!

In another jar I put in a quarter for every 30 minutes of exercise workouts I do in a day.

The money is adding up. I'm saving the quarters for running shoes. I'm not sure what the other jar's savings will go to.

Perfect Days

When I have a perfect day, i.e., all my nutrients are in range and the meals are simple, I print off the page and save it. It makes for easy meal planning during a busy week!

Walking Challenge

When hubby leaves work for his 40 minute commute I leave the house for a brisk walk. I meet him somewhere up the road. Each day I try to go a little further than the last time. The bonus is, I can accurately track my milage using the car odometer.

Shake on the Chia Seeds!

Empty spice shaker with decent size holes? Fill it with chia seeds and set it out. A little shake here, a little shake here, and before you know it you get in the habit of adding some nutrition to your foods.

Medicine Bottles for Storing Change

Empty medicine bottles are great for storing change. A typical small bottle will hold $10 in quarters. Those are great to have on hand for parking meters, the laundrymat or for tolls on a trip.

When hubby empties his pockets at night I also have designated bottles for nickles and dimes.

Give yourself a Holiday Gift

Holidays are an opportunity to gift yourself and others with the treat of a food you may not be familiar with. Something with lots of nutrients, delicious and "body" friendly. Today I'm adding kiwi to the traditional fruit platter at the family holiday gathering. (I was shocked how many said they'd never tried it!)
