Avoid Unwanted Snacking

Don't cancel out all your hard work by snacking on calorie-laden foods. Here are seven easy ways to help you say no to all your guilty pleasures:
  1. Down eight or more glasses of water a day.
  2. Eat five to six planned, well-balanced meals a day.
  3. Load up on fiber.
  4. Never eat from the bag! Put your food on a plate or bowl.
  5. In the morning, plan out what you are going to eat for the rest of the day, healthy snacks included.
  6. Keep a food journal.
  7. Find a weight loss partner you can consult with daily about what you've eaten.

I had the opportunity to go to a make-up seminar hosted by the one and only EnKore of EnKoreMakeUp onYoutube. He is such a great person and a fabulous make-up artist! I had so much fun learning tricks and tips from him. I am a newbie at this make-up thing (that I enjoy so much now) and I was so happy when he complimented me on my make-up! Someone even asked me if I were a make-up artist! I really like a natural look w/ nice colors to enhance the look. I even bought some make-up from MAC which were are discounted prices, I had so much fun. I will def share the tips that I learned from him with you.
