RECIPE ORGANIZATION

I have hundreds of cookbooks in my collection as well as my computer files. I started a recipe box with the name, book or file, page, and brief notes on an index card, filed alphabetically. Each time I try something new I add a card to the file. This way I know exactly where to find it next time!

Forgiveness

If I overeat or have a high calorie snack I don't go to pieces, berate myself or give up. I sit down, and figure how to make up for it, such as exercising at a higher intensity. In the past I would call myself a failure and give up. No more!
