Tuesday's Tips: 11

Here we are, approaching a New Year and the time when everyone makes resolutions. The question is, do you actually remember what your resolutions are and do you keep them? I manage to do well on some of them, but honestly, most of the time my resolutions are unrealistic.... sooooo....

Tip: Set REALISTIC health goals for yourself.
If you need to lose 50 lbs., then say "I can lose a pound a week." If you do better than that great, but the point is 1 pound a week is much easier to attain than 10 lbs. a week. I was realistic with my weightloss goals and I managed to lose 30 pounds in 4 1/2 months.

You can do it! And, if any of you want me to help cheer you on, just drop me a note, and I'll gladly help in any way I can. :)

Sunday Sweets- Frozen Deliciousness

I have a weakness for ice cream, but lately I've been avoiding it as much as possible. My goal for this holiday season is not to gain weight! It's not easy, but I'm finding more self-control than I thought I had.
Anyway, I've discovered how much I like eating frozen fruit like Strawberries, Banana chunks, and Raspberries with Hershey's syrup on top. It's really good and not bad on calories.

1 cup Frozen whole Strawberries = 50 calories
1 tbsp. Hershey's Syrup = 50 calories

100 calories? That's totally doable. :)
