I have been a Sparkpeople member for almost 5 years. I have learned a lot about nutrition, fitness, and my own unhealthy patterns in this time.

My key issues are emotional eating, consistency, and a lack of mindfulness. I have a long way to go, but I am learning to really love myself for me, at any size, along the way. I really want 2015 to be a productive and healthy year!

Sharing another little tid-bit I read (in Womans World Magazine):

Drinking tomato juice is an easy, convenient, inexpensive way to get lycopene, selenium, and Vitamins A & C into your diet. Tomatoes contain many powerful compounds, and the bottled or canned juice, which is made from cooked tomatoes, makes these compounds more readibly absorbed in our bodies. Plus the thickness of the juice is very satisfying & makes you feel full.

Hint: Champions, if you are doing the Wk #4 Challenge - EAT A RAINBOW, think RED . . . check! emoticon emoticon

Little mini-challenge for you: Gain energy from eating some vitamin C-rich foods.

Over the next few days, concentrate on adding foods rich in vitamin C to your meals or snacks. There are plenty of options, including red or green bell pepper, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, strawberries, kiwi, cantaloupe, and papaya. Or get a liquid dose with a glass of orange, grapefruit, or vegetable juice. A chewable vitamin C is also a viable option (I find this easiest, actually).

A deficiency in vitamin C may deplete your levels of carnitine (a substance that helps your body burn fat for energy) by as much as 50%. As you'd expect, that can make you feel a lot less energetic! Many of us don't get the C we need, so adding one vitamin C-rich food can help you bring those levels up and keep you going strong throughout the day. emoticon emoticon

Little tid-bit I read over the weekend & wanted to share . . .

"Just take a bit of whatever you're craving and let it sit in your mouth for a count of 30. You'll fully relish the texture and flavors--and trick your brain into thinking you've eaten more!"

We are the Champions, my friend! We can rock this Challenge! Keep up the good work! emoticon emoticon emoticon
