Morning Time Management

Mornings could be a very hectic time in any household, especially if everyone is on a very tight schedule, and in a hurry to get done as fast as possible, and to move on.

It is even worse if you are not a morning person, and you have to drag yourself out of bed, even after the alarm goes off, and the snooze button is hit few more times (this is not a good idea).

Here are some of my suggestions to make the best of your busy morning, but it requires good planning the night before:

Is There Ever Enough Snow?

We thought that the worse snow storm of this season was over, but as the saying goes “Don’t count your chickens until all the eggs hatch”, so here we are again…..with a bigger snow storm than the one before.

In my last post I was cheering you on with signs of spring, but today I will share some signs of winter still in full swing.

Signs Of Spring – Or Mass Confusion

A couple of weeks ago, on Saturday, we had a gorgeous day. It was sunny, pleasantly warm, with the temperature in the low 50ties, but what was so peculiar about it, is that it’s still the middle of winter. Mother Nature reminded us of this reality during this past weekend.

As you know, I love nature and gardening, so I could not resist to go outside and check out how my garden is doing this time of the year.

I was pleasantly surprised, and quite confused, when I noticed some of my spring plants already popping out of the ground. It definitely is way too early for them to be peeking out, but then again, it’s the call of Mother Nature.

The Fat Smash Diet – First Day OF Detox

I already informed you about the Fat Smash Diet, introduced you to the book, posted the food list, and hopefully convinced you to join me, so we can have fun together.

So today is the BIG day, our first day of Detox, and as with anything else in life, first is always the most challenging. It will get easier with each passing day, believe me, because you are building up your confidence, self control, and most of all, you begin to feel better and eat healthier.

I printed out my lists of Recommended and “DO NOT” foods, and posted it on my refrigerator. My food shopping was done on Saturday, and on Sunday I jotted down my basic plan for my daily eating routine and a quick first day menu.

The Fat Smash Diet – Phase One Foods

As I mentioned to you in my previous post about the Fat Smash Diet, there are 4 different Phases you go through during this program, and each phase has a list of suggested and excluded foods.

Some of the excluded foods in one phase are being introduced back into your diet in the next phase, so for ideal success, you need to follow these food suggestions, eat 3-4 smaller meals per day, follow the same eating schedule, and continue to exercise.

Just think, this phase is only 9 days long….you can do it!!
