Muffin Cups for Portion Control

12 Oct

Ever have one of those “aha!” moments while rummaging through your cabinets?? I’m always on the lookout for ways to help with portion control and while I was on the hunt for a snack the other day, I came across those rubbery muffin/cupcake liners. Hmmm..

A cheap and effective way to portion out snacks with materials you have hopefullyalready? Muffin/cupcake liners! Yes, these liners  can come in handy both for baking and portion control. Each liner is about a half-cup portion; perfect for nuts, fruits, or pretzels!

Do some rummaging through your cabinets (not just kitchen ones! it’s amazing what you find elsewhere..) and see what you can find to help you better portion out foods. Get creative and use your imagination!

To-do = To-done

I have some free time between clients so it’s the perfect time for a fitbit!

I’m beginning to write a personal training/fitness newsletter for the trainers and instructors and University Recreation. The newsletter will (hopefully) highlight a trainer each month where they can “brag” about their clients goals that they’ve reached, personal goals they set for themselves, and they’re favorite exercise/workout. I hope things go as planned! Stay tuned for more info on the newsletter!

How do you or someone you know celebrate when you’ve reached a goal? Do you like to be highlighted or would you rather keep it to yourself?

When thinking about how much you have to do today/the week, take a deep breath and focus on 1 task at a time.  Make a to-do list(high to low priority) and check off each completed task as you finish them. Looking at a full list of to-do’s and seeing that YOU CAN complete them will bring your sanity back. (I’m doing this as I type.. :D)
