    The biggest rule I've ever lived by was, if I can't do it myself than I probably don't need it. This is towards food. It took me to the point where I had dairy goats and made my own butter, cheese, yogurt and ice cream, not to mention garden, livestock, poultry and mini brewery. I was thinner and stronger back then. I let it lax in the last couple of years but I'm working back to it.

    I'd probably die, as I am the only person I know with such a black thumb that I can't grow weeds.

    Don't piss off the wife is the only rule that I live by.

    That's a very good rule! Same rule my grandfather had, he had a long and happy life because of it.

    Be honest with myself and what I am eating. I find I tend to stop logging when I have not been following my healthy eating plan, eating too big portions. (I also do this weird thing with myself. I remind myself this is not my last supper and at some time in the future, I will eat what I love, but just not today). In life, I try to be kind and give other people the benefit of the doubt.

    Focus on what I can influence or control to help achieve my goals, not on stuff I can't change. Strive to balance current Ann's hedonic impulses with future Ann's health needs, because both of me are important. And have fun.

    Stay within my calorie goal for the week. If I'm going to go over my goal for the day, I log the extra for the next day and force myself to stay under goal for that day.

    General rule for life: Choose kindness

    My diet is in check so my only other kind of health related goal is that at 11pm whether I'm tired or not; I turn off all the lights and put my phone away so that I fall asleep. I used to be up till 3am regularly so this was a huge deal for me.

    This is a rule I need to enforce on myself!

    A friend always used to ask herself, do I need this or do I want this? She always swore by it. I do like the apple theory in the OP- going to try it!
