This or That? It’s all about small changes and BIG results!
Mustard > Mayo
I recently jumped onto the mustard train, toot toot! Using mustard on sandwiches is a small change that will make a huge difference on your waistline. I do not like the bitterness of regular mustard so I get French’s Honey Mustard instead! My sandwich world has been totally rocked!

Moving > Lounging
A good way to keep active is cleaning while you’re watching TV. I have a TV in my room and kitchen, so instead of just sitting and watching my shows I like to organize and keep myself on my feet. No better way to watch TLC!

Dancing > Drinking
Don’t get me wrong, I like sitting and catching up with my girls at the bar just as much as the next girl. But all the calories in alcohol PLUS sitting on your lazy bum, isn’t a good mix. So get up and go on the dance-floor! You will burn calories and be too preoccupied to think about that Cosmo waiting for you at the bar.

Non-Fat Milk > 2% Milk
I did this a few years ago and I actually learned to like non-fat milk better than 2%! It’s not as thick and creamy; it’s more refreshing and better for your waistline!

Froyo > Ice-cream
Next time you are getting an ice-cream craving, skip the good old Ben and Jerry’s and get yourself some frozen yogurt! I like to add fruit and fat free cool whip to mine!

Healthy Eating > Dieting
The danger with dieting it that it needs to become a lifestyle change. If you are only eating salads and dry wheat toast, the second you go back to normal eating habits you could gain all the weight back! So instead of dieting, just make substitutions. You can use wheat bread instead of white bread, an omelet instead of bacon wraps, or chicken sandwich instead of a burger.

Positive People > Debbie Downers
A key to staying positive and happy is surrounding yourself with people who are also positive and happy. If you are around people who look at the glass half full it will start to rub off on you. We are creatures of our surroundings and habits, so make sure your friends fit what you want for yourself!

Cool Down > Fuel the Fire
It is a way of life, we all argue. But a way to keep your sanity and become a more pleasant person is learning to walk away, cool down, and ultimately choose your battles wisely. Sometimes when we get so angry we just want to get our 2 cents in and win the battle! But you need to ask yourself, is this argument worth it? Just learn to step away from the situation and return to it when both parties are in a more rational and calm state of mind.
