Everyday Resolutions - Bite-Size Changes Once a Week

  • I'm officially here to save you (us) money, time, calories, waistlines, and sanity. Do the following just one teensy little time a week. You can thank me later.

  • Ditch the Venti-Mocha-Shimmy-with-a-Cartwheel-and-a-Splash-of-Parcheesi. You'll save what - maybe 12-15 bucks a month? Also, we mustn't forget about saving your waistline, ass, and the world. Well - maybe not the world...
  • Switch out brown rice for regular on your next sushi order. Not a sushi fan? That's okay - just start cooking with brown rice instead of white, whole wheat/wholemeal pasta instead of regular, or just request brown rice next time you hit Panda Express. The whole grains and fiber will work wonders!
  • For the last half of your lunch break or maybe just before dinner, take a quick jog. If you're not up to the task (or if it's way to stinking cold), then just head out for a brisk walk. Seriously - 15 minutes, and you'll feel like the most accomplished person on the planet, and all those 15 minutes start to add up!

  • Instead of mindlessly flipping channels on tv (Bones - Family Guy - CSI - Family Guy - Law & Order: SVU - House - Yeah - I know the drill.), pick up a book, and start flipping pages. Find something you like, and before you know it, you'll be an avid reader again! Plus, I can personally attest to the fact that you'll feel far more accomplished.

  2. I used to visit Starbucks or Coffee Bean at least once a day. I started making coffee at home last March and presto chango! More money, and I did loose weight. Who knew? Great post!

  4. Very good tips. I agree that little things oddly make me feel so accomplished. I made myself into an avid reader last year to (even wrote a blog post about it). Now onto that jogging part....
