Spiked water trick

I meant to buy water flavoring this week but forgot. I don't much get inspired by water, even bottled, and I can drink Diet Coke Cherry or Vanilla Zero by the VAT. This isn't good, even though moderate diet soda consumption is ok. So I got the idea to spike my bottled water with about an ounce of Diet Coke. The water spiked with diet cola has enough of the flavor to make it interesting, but it's still mostly water. It makes it much easier to get eight glasses a day.

cottage cheese

I liked cottage cheese but it did not agree with my stomach. Can't take credit, saw it on youtube. I blend the cottage smooth in the blender Now its fine and a good source of protein. Great tip.

Add pics to help organize

Regardless of what you are organizing, take a picture of it, and put in on the outside of the container for an easy visual of what is there. This works well with shoes, crafting supplies, and decorations!

Put That Exercise On "PAUSE"--You Heard me!

When I decide to do a chore, read a bit, watch tv, or anything else, I pop in my exercise dvd/video for the day. Whenever I need a break, I turn it on and work out as hard as I can for up to ten minutes. I then put the dv/video on "pause" and go back to whatever it was I was involved in. Doing short spurts of intensive exercising really pushes my body. I am more inclined to push to the limit for ten minutes, rather than complete a dvd/tape in one sitting I garner maximum calorie range in a short

Lunch: Pack it at Night

I pack my lunch each night, usually when I'm cleaning up from dinner. That way, when I'm rushed in the morning, I can't forget to make a healthy lunch.

Dirty Microwaves

If you have a dirty microwave and everything you put in it blew up and now you have a tough mess to clean. Simply cut a lemon in 1/2 and put it in a bowl with some water and microwave for 2-3mins. The steam will loosen the mess and the lemon leaves it smelling wonderfully. Easy to clean no chemicals to smell.

Lasagna without noodles

I blanch cabbage leaves and drain them and then use them in place of the pasta. It freezes beautifully and my husband and I hardly miss the pasta.
