Eating healthier and 10 things not to do when weighing in…

With the hustle and bustle of the holidays it is pretty easy to fall back on bad eating habits.  I know that one of the first places I seem to head when hungry and in a rush between errands is the local fast food joint.  Which is a bad plan if I want to stick with good-for-you choices.  Currently, I am taking advantage of the new V8 Protein Shakes and Bars that I found at Walmart.

Along with my push to improve my choices in eating, I need to take a little look at my current obsession- the scale.  So, I put together a great list of 10 Things NOT to do, when weighing yourself.  Based on past experience, of course.  LOL!

But let’s look at the V8 Protein products first!  I started a new job this week; I’m busy trying to sell my house; I have a website to run; (make that two websites); I have a husband and father-in-law that cannot seem to feed themselves; I have an Etsy shop to maintain and products to make; I have a large list of emails that are waiting to be answered.  Oh and every now and then I sleep.
