Trouble Sleeping

Have trouble sleeping monitor when you are having drinks with caffeine. I recently read that it takes 11 hours to get caffeine out of your system. A big wake up call for me, I generally have trouble sleeping since I work 3rd shift at a hotel. I quit drinking a bottle of Diet Mountain Dew at work because I was always finishing close to quitting time. I now sleep much better because I'm not trying to go to sleep with caffeine still in my system. emoticon

Juice Pops

I know that eating the fruit is better for you but in the summer when it is so hot I like to take fruit juice and freeze it for a healthy snack. Depending on the fruit juice I also add a little water and if I have the fruit as well I'll add a little fruit. This works better for me because if I buy a box of the low calorie fudge bars I have trouble sticking to one.

Go Heavy on the Spices

I've found that I can make many of my favorite dishes with little or no salt by going heavier on the other spices I use in the dish. An example I recently made bean soup and the only salt was in the can of tomatoes I used which was spread over 15 cups of soup. But I went heavy on the garlic, bay leaf and clove. Didn't even notice the lack of added salt or meat.

Use Less Mayo

They have the flavored mayo now. I've tried the chipolte and I find for a sandwich I only need to use about a teaspoon which only has 15 calories. This is a big help to me since I don't like mustard on everything.

Hobbies to keep busy

I've found that I eat from boredom. To combat this I picked hobbies that require use of my hands and something I don't want to chance getting food stains on like - sewing, knitting, scrap booking. emoticon emoticon

A Dollar Per Pound

For every pound I loose I've started putting a dollar in a jar. That way when I get to my goal weight I'll have some money already set aside to buy new clothes. Also it is a great motivator to see the jar filling up. emoticon

Time Management

Depending on what room you are usually in that last half hour before you leave either set your kitchen timer or an alarm clock so it goes off as a warning that you need to wrap things up and get going.
