You deserve it!

Sometimes spending a little extra money on a bag of apple slices or a kit with hummus and pretzels is okay. If these smaller portion sizes (or convenient yet healthy foods) allow me to stay on track, it's worth it! Plus, it can actually save me money because they don't end up in the trash! emoticon

Do One Thing, Do it Well - Cynthia Heald

The author foused on this at a recent women's event highlighting simplicity. You can gracefully say no because your focus is on one important activity. You are honored to be asked, but no, not at this time. Another point, never just automatically say yes. Pray, then get back with a prayed out, thought out response.

Be 100% honest with yourself

The first indicator of eventual failure is denial even in the smallest way. Don't fudge anywhere! Even if you feel ashamed about a slip up it's far better to embrace the mistake and move on then try to ignore it. It also helps when you want to see what is working and what isn't further down the road.

Easy pretty feet!

I always liberally apply Vaseline petroleum jelly to my feet before putting on my socks and sneakers. After my run/walk, my feet are always smooth and soft. My feet always look nice in sandals or strappy shoes!

Smaller Plates

When serving food, use a smaller plate. (You can always go back for seconds.) Less food, better portion control. Since the plate looks full, you won't miss the larger portion.

Each Moment is a Gift

It's so easy to get caught up in all the things that weren't perfect - the snack you ate too much of, the workout you skipped, the bad day you had. What's done is done, so change this moment into the life you want to live. Get up and go for a walk or do a few crunches or push-ups. Prepare a healthy snack to have ready in the fridge. Let go of the past!
