I keep measuring cups, measuring spoons, etc., in a bowl in on my countertop. This makes it easy for me to find the measurer I want, without digging through drawers or dish drainers for them. It makes meal and snack prep much faster for me. A food scale in a handy spot also helps!
Using measuring cups, spoons, and a food scale help keep calorie and nutrient counts more accurate on days that I use the food tracker.
An easy way to keep your calorie count accurate is to keep a 1/2 cup measuring cup in the pantry next to the cereal boxes. Most cereal calorie counts go by 1/2 cup or 1 cup. With the measure right there you won't accidentally over pour! Use it to measure your milk, rinse & put back on the shelf.
I'm always looking for ways to add more steps to my daily step count. I take the stairs instead of the elevator, I take the LONG way to any destination instead of the short cut . Every single step counts and they add up quickly! 321
There are pedometers available for every budget. Investing in one that suited my needs was a great motivator because I can see how much progress I am making every single day!
