Tip Jar Tuesday



I hope that I am getting re addicted reacquainted with all of you this week while my hubby is traveling!!

I thought I would share a weight loss tip, since I am on a motivation bandwagon!!

Here are a couple of things that are helping me get through the hungry times:

1. Take a multi-vitamin in the morning..might not notice at first but after 2 or 3 days it really does help curb cravings for things that you should not eat....

2. Guzzle down the water..by a really cool water bottle I♥ my Camelbak so you might want to check them out. They make drinking water easy and cool looking =)

3. Stop eating after 9pm. If you go to bed about 9pm stop eating at 7pm. Go to bed hungry. If I am famished, I will make myself some DETOX tea at night. You can pick that up at target for $6 and again, you may not notice for a day or 2 but by day 3 it is really helping!!!

Great tips, Tara. I am trying to drink lots of water now and I take the dog for a long walk everyday.

I was about to say that you are using hubby gone time wisely!! ;o) Hopefully the boys don't rat you out! Thanks for the tips. It is awesome that everyone is so motivated right now. It helps just seeing people committed to getting healthier. That, and I just booked our trip to California for the end of March beginning of April and I WILL fit back into my old clothes by then!!

I am trying to drink lots more water, too. I find I feel so much better. I kid myself by thinking that a coke (with all that caffiene) will help me through the day. Also, I love not eating late just because I feel better in the morning. Great tips!

Great Tips Tarah. I might have to check out the Detox tea- it is by the regular tea? or the weightloss section? Anything to help!

Thanks for the great tips! I love the new look and the header is so cute! For whatever reason, I kept looking for E whenever I saw the Inaguration today and I really don't even know what he looks like! He was the only one I knew who was there! LOL Whatever!!
