Belvita

Belvita breakfast biscuits are really tasty and they're very balanced nutritionally. I fnd that if I eat a package of them and a glass of milk, I'm full until lunch. It's a great grab and go breakfast for when you're running late and otherwise wouldn't be able to eat. TIP: there are 3 flavors, but the blueberry ones are the best--they taste like a crunchy blueberry muffin! emoticon

If you have trouble getting your veggies in, eat a sliced tomato or have a glass of low sodium V8 with breakfast.

Record every bite

I know it's tediouis, but log every single bite you eat on the nutrition tracker. You'd be surprised how much those bites add up. I started doing this and found out I was regularly consuming about 500 more calories per day than I thought! Even if it's one cracker, two chips, one taste of cookie dough..log everything!!

Make your own dishwasher detergent cheap!

In a plastic container, mix 1 1/2 cup baking soda, 1 cup Borax, and 1/2 cup kosher salt. Mix well. Use in your dishwasher like powdered detergent.

Put food in the tracker BEFORE you eat it

When I track my food after meals, I always find that I ate more than I thought I did. I've started planning my entire day's meals, and I put it in the tracker, and look at it before meals/snacks to make sure I stick to what I planned to eat. Might not work for everyone, but it helps me.

Use yogurt to coat chicken

You can use a little plain yogurt for coat chicken with if you are going to bread chicken. I like it better than using egg because it makes the chicken a little juicier!

Art brushes make great makeup brushes!

Attention ladies: instead of makeup brushes, go to the local craft store and buy some paint brushes instead! They work just as well, and sometimes better!

Just go!

Don't spend to long thinking if you feel like exercising or not. Throw on your shoes and GO. If you think about it too hard, you'll talk yourself out of it.

Weigh in on FRIDAY

If you have trouble overeating on the weekend, then switch your weigh-in/measure day to FRIDAY. This way, if you lost weight, it'll be on your mind over the weekend and help you stay healthy!
