    I think I’ve done well to get to this point but know there is more I can be doing. Slip ups are not such a challenge these days. I start every day fresh and don’t let the negative talk get in the way. 🙂

    Serve small portions of food [the size of your fist]. If your still hungry take a second small helping.

    It’s wrong to eat your money’s worth. There are parts of your food [i.e. gristle/fat left on plate because it’s not healthy for you]. There are times when you won’t be able to finish your plate: 1. Place in plastic container and reheat and eat later. 2. Do not feel bad if you have to throw it out. NEVER OVEREAT OR STUFF YOURSELF — YOUR BODY WILL COME BACK TO HAUNT YOU.
    Advertising online or in the newspapers — they want to sell their product. It doesn’t matter if it’s healthy or not. This is a sales gimmick to buy their product.

    Unless you have a medical reason keeping a food diary is a personal choice and a commitment. The following is suggestions from my group: A food diary should include breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, exercise, how your food was cooked: i.e. baked. broiled, fried, grilled or microwaved. Also, include sauces, spreads, dressings and condiments. You are observing what you eat over a period of time and then adjusting your food to healthy choices that will help you lose weight.
    Health benefits of pepper, which is a spice which improves digestion and promotes intestinal health.
    Mustard is better than mayonnaise and ketchup = mustard has no fat or sugar = mayonnaise and ketchup have sugar.
    Garlic builds resistance to diseases and keeps germs away.
    Taking fish oil pill daily is a natural mood pill and good for cholesterol.
    Mission 24: Actions:
    My group benefits of daily micro-exercise:
    Take the steps instead of the elevator with the exception of: if you’re walking with medical canes, crutches, walkers or in wheel chairs, etc. take the elevators.
    If you own property doing yard work is a great exercise; planting gardens and flower gardens is also great exercise.
    Daily walking up and down your street; walking in the hallway; playing with your cat are great exercises. I have two people who walk a mire or more per day. Also you can walk in a mall before the stores open.
    We talked about pedometers. I’ve tried about 10 different ones and none of them worked for more than a month. At this point and time I think they are a waste of money. The exercise belt with the watch during exercise works great.
    To be a mover and a shaker would be to dance to your favorite TV Show or play your favorite music via DVD or radio.
