When I left, I started working part time but missed the full-time income.

My pants were too tight and I could no longer fit in my favorite board shorts. I was a runner and didn’t like working out but running wasn’t cutting it and after failing once again, I knew something had to change. I reluctantly joined a challenge group and to my surprise, I found I was not alone. Many people had similar circumstances and were ready for a change.

Save More Money

Shopping for groceries, and eating out less you will start to save money. Once you write out your meal plan and the ingredients you will need. Now you can shop and buy only the items you will need for that week. Sticking to your list will save you time and money

If you don't meal plan you'll find yourself going out for dinner. And you are most likely to end up exceeding your daily calorie and sodium intake! Even just stopping at the grocery store to pick up a last minute dinner may lead to poor choices. When you shop hungry, you are more likely to throw junk food into your cart.

Check the weather.
Seriously. Right now, the weather is changing, spring and summer are on their way. Check out the weather forecast, and make your plan based on how you feel and are in the mood for. Soup or Salad?
