Quote of the Day

Success.....Go Get It!  It takes ACTION!

Success.....go get it! Success takes action! You get an idea, you plan, you take action to accomplish your plan! 

Break the tasks down into manageable sections! This last week my daughter called me and said she was overwhelmed by her yard and she needed my help.  What was a beautiful yard when she bought her house several years ago had gotten overgrown. Yards do that when you don't tend to them!  

I went to her house, took pictures of the front and back and made a TO DO list after breaking her yard into 12 different projects, or areas.  Each project has different tasks. I sent the list to her and said, lets pick an area and spend time on just that area....forget the entire overwhelming yard, just focus on one area and one task in that area at a time. After three days of working several hours, it already looks so much better.  It will take another 2-3 weeks to complete all the areas, but she has her plan and her path to success and is no longer overwhelmed!

It helps her stay motivated to have my help, and she is so excited over our success, that she is tackling tasks in between my visits to help!

Recipe of the Day or a
Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day

Cabbage soup is a must for the colder months of the year! It is full of nutrition and a large pot stewing on your stove will make your house smell heavenly, especially if you brown your bacon first! 

It's a tasty meal that will get you excited about leftovers! Adding a pot of soup each week to your weekly menu plan is a great lifestyle solution to adopt!

Cabbage Soup Recipe by Kerry of Healthy Diet Habits

All soups can be tweaked to your taste buds! Vegetable soups cooked in broth, versus a cream base, are a healthy diet habit. They offer nutrition from various vegetables and are generally a low calorie, filling meal. Pair this cabbage soup with a slice of hearty bread and a salad! The added bonus is leftovers.

You can get the Recipe for Cabbage Soup from Kerry's Healthy Diet Habits website!
