Loose Consciously

I live a conscious life in this weight loss journey. For example, I consciously eat only when am hungry, I am conscious of my calories, I deliberately workout on scheduled days, I am alive to my body to be sure I look better each day. I deliberately face my fears and exalt my strength.

Spice it up!

I add red chili flakes to almost every meal
When I increase the heat (which I love), I eat a lot slower, and my meals last longer

Act your wage

Saw this powerful statement and it has stayed with me. Too often we use credit or put off bills to make ourselves feel better. Acting my wage means having a reality based spending plan and being willing to stick to it!

Treat It Like A Job

When I asked a young woman who had lost 200 pounds how she did it, she said that she treated weight loss like a job. No matter how she felt, she showed up. She showed up at the grocery store to buy the right food, she showed up to track her food, she showed up to walk, etc.

I grab my fat

When I want to eat something I don't need, usually a Snickers, I grab my belly fat. I reminds me that I already have a Snickers in storage.

Keep Salad Greens Crisp

Making your salad ahead is a time saver and keeping the greens fresh and crisp is easy. Wet a few paper towels with cold water then squeeze out the excess. Lay the paper towels over the salad and add a few ice cubes to keep cool. To serve just take the paper towels off and discard. Your salad will be nice and crisp.

"Frosting" an Avocado Half

A whole avocado may be too much for 1 meal. How to keep the second half from turning brown? "Frost" it with Greek yogurt! The thick yogurt creates an airtight layer, and the avocado stays fresh, green and delicious--ready to eat as a healthy "frosted" snack, or to be mashed up for yogurt-based guacamole. To make it even more elegant, sprinkle the "frosting" with dill weed or paprika.

Does Brown Bag Popcorn Work?

How many places have you read that you can take a lunch sack and popcorn kernals and make your own DIY microwave popcorn? I never believed it - but it's true! Kernals in a brown bag, fold the top a few times and pop for about 2.5 minutes - today I topped mine with feta and smoked paprika! YUM!
