Quote of the Day

I've had my "stuff" in storage since I sold my house a couple of years ago. I've been crashing at my parents house helping them out, but recently my brother and his wife and my parents put a deposit down on a house being built that has a suite apartment for my parents. While at their house, I had minimal "stuff", basically my clothes and my computer, tablet, and phone. No bills except for my car insurance on a 2007 sports car, and my storage unit.

I found I really liked the simplicity of not having much "stuff". 

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

It can be difficult to control emotional eating! We emotionally eat for many reasons. It is important to develop lifestyle solutions to end emotional eating. This can be done by creating a list of activities to do in emotional eating situations. Choose the activities you enjoy, and try one next time you want to eat emotionally.

See Kerry's list of activities to try instead of eating to control emotional eating on her Healthy Diet Habits website!
