Portion Control – DIY Snack Bowl

Control your portion with this DIY Snack Bowl 

Making my own snack bowl to control my portions and save money. This bowl has dates, cheese, cashews, and grapes. I used a 2 cup Pyrex bowl with lid. Use this bowl to create a healthy snack bowl. This bowl holds my morning and afternoon snack. 

I keep myself accountable by using Pyrex bowls, I use the 1 cup, 2 cup, and 4 cup.

I wish Pyrex made a glass half cup size with lid, it would be a perfect set.

I’ll keep you posted on my weight loss using my bowls.

Growth

Growth is a journey of self-reflection.

Grow in life.

 

The journey into self-love and self acceptance must begin with self-examination … until you take the journey of self-reflection it is almost impossible to grow or learn in life.

I think I got this book if you are interested in getting a copy let me know $2.00 plus shipping and handling.  


Quote: Peace

What is peace?

“It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.”

Each week I meet on our Weight Loss & Wellness Conference Call with some awesome women who talk and share our hearts.  Our goal is to find balance and peace in our life.  We discuss the six dimensions of health: Spiritual, Emotional, Environmental, Physical, Social and Financial health. (SEE-PSF) 

Our call is teaching me how to find “peace”.  I am not the same women I was last year because of the time I have spent with these women. Every thing is not perfect or balanced but I am at peace with myself.

Love you, Wellness Partners…

Peace

Daily Quote: Birds of a Feather

Birds of a feather flock together:

Who are you spending your time with? The older I get the smaller my circle. It seems the most of my time is at work.  Light bulb moment this is a good reason why you should be doing what you love with the people you love.

Proverb:

People of the same sort or with the same tastes and interests will be found together.
