Life Expectancy Calculator

I saw this on Dr. OZ the other day and teared up when a women from the audience learned that her life expectancy was only 69 years old. I took the quiz and I'm having my whole family take it. You can find it online at http://calculator.livingto10

Take a PICTURE - It will last longer!!

Yesterday, I had my daughter take a full-length picture of me with my phone. Because my goal is look good for my daughter's wedding pictures in September, I checked my phone-photo during several moments of weakness today. I had to force myself, but it worked!!

Think ahead!

When I know we will be going to a restaurant for dinner, I will pull the menu from the internet and make my choices in the morning. I'll enter them in my nutrition tracker right away and make the rest of the day's choices based on what I plan to eat. Makes ordering food so easy and carefree!!

Delegation is Not a Weakness

I have a friend who won't let her children or husband help with the housework because they don't do it as well as she does. She's tired and stressed a lot! I send my kids an e-mail from work every morning with some praise, love, and a short "to-do" list. It's so nice to "see" the kitchen table or an empty trash can or vacuum "lines." when I come home. It may not be perfect, but it's a start! emoticon
