Food-for-thought this week:

Diets have a start and a finish, but a lifestyle change will last forever. Imagine yourself where you want to be, and that is where you will go. Being mindful about your eating can help you stay focused on your weight loss plan. As you eat, pay close attention to all your senses. Use your tongue to feel the texture of the food, gauge its temperature, and take a whiff of the aroma. Ask yourself if it is something that is really satisfying your taste buds. Every choice is yours to make!

Try this little "trick" this week . . . the “1 Times 10 Trick”

Find 10 opportunities during the day to raise your heart rate for just 1 minute at a time. You can do anything for only 1 minute, right? You’ll burn as many as 300-400 extra calories a day by doing this little trick alone!!! emoticon emoticon

Little mini-challenge for you this week! Hopefully, you’ll be reminded of this every day, when you check your sparkpage:

Tone up—without leaving the comfort of your bed! Before getting out of bed each morning, spend just a few minutes doing exercises (or stretches). The softer surface of a mattress forces your muscles to work harder, for stability and balance. Try hip raises (bridges), bicycle-abs, the clam, side-twists (while sitting up, maybe add arm circles to that one). Don’t forget stretches, too. A great one would be pulling your knees towards your chest (good for sciatica). We’ll call it---Fitness for Lazy Days! emoticon emoticon

Little mini-challenge for you this week! Hopefully, you’ll be reminded of this everyday—when you check your sparkpage:

“Get Up & Move”—at least once an hour. Studies show that hours of inactivity change the way your body processes glucose & fat. Continuous sitting causes metabolic changes that increase blood sugar levels & decrease the amount of fat used for fuel. Both then cause an increase in fat storage—not what you want to happen! Let’s “Get Up & Move” throughout this 5% Challenge!! We can do this, my friends! emoticon emoticon
