Shop Aldi's - They Have Healthy Options, I Swear

I used to think that Aldi's was only full of super processed junk food. However, I have found my favorite things there like hummus, light cheese sticks, produce, low sodium/sugar canned fruit and soups. While there are certainly temptations if you are looking to lose weight and save money Aldi's can't be beat!

A place for everything

I now use the example of knowing exactly where my toothbrush goes to keep me on track for having a place for each item as defined as that.

How Spring Cleaning Helps!

One doesn't have to spring clean all the time ........ in fact LESS if you are vigilant about picking up after yourself and having a place for everything. I find I can clean as I go on a daily basis, minutes here and there ........ and find extra time for workouts, and fun in general! (wrote blog: Spring Has Sprung" on 3-15-14) Hope you come read.

Don't Dither Move On

If packing up a house, don't dither over items you're not sure if you want them packed or are unsure how to pack them. Keep moving and working on the sure things. You'll find while you're showering or doing other tasks, your mind will be working behind the scenes to help you decide.

Stay in touch!!

When I was doing my best during weight loss was when I checked in with SP every day. Then life got crazy and I got away from the site. Of course then I gained almost all my weight back!

Become a clean freak

Staying busy is a good way to stop boredom eating. When you are cleaning out your closets or organizing your christmas decorations, you arent thinking about food. At the end of the day, you've been active, avoided boredom eating and have a visible accomplishment emoticon

Visual Motivation!

Besides a Vision Collage, place a small jar filled with pebbles or marbles, one for each pound or half pound you have set your goal at. Take out the pebbles or marbles as you lose those pounds. Keep your jar on the kitchen counter or close to the refrigerator as a reminder to stay on track.
