Now, time for a little encouragement:

"Life is all about choices. Whatever we choose, we look like, feel like, and live like. Choose to move more, nourish yourself with whole foods, and chill out to de-stress. Every moment, we alter our destiny by making better choices." Dr. Pamela Peeke

Great Tips from Discovery Health:

1. Portion Control - Since your stomach is very small, all the food you eat should be able to fit into the palm of your hand, including lean meats, poultry etc. (fruits should be the size of your fist).

2. Calorie Counting - Keep count of calories up to 1,500-2,000 calories a day for a healthy diet. (Read the back of labels and wrappers to check calories)

3.Eat protein first thing in the A.M. - The first thing that touches your lips in the morning is what you will crave all day. Try drinking six ounces of fat-free milk before you drink or eat anything, to keep you on track all day long.

4. Drink at least eight ounces of water, eight times a day.

5. Limit the amount of calories you drink daily - i.e. soda and juices, which contain high sugar and lots of calories.

6. Eat plenty of fruits and green vegetables.

7. Use light and low-fat product. Using these items will help you cut the fat that you are eating and excess calories as well.

8. Take at least 20 minutes to eat your meals - Eating should be an enjoyable event. Slow down the pace to allow your body to digest properly.

9. Eat every two to four hours to increase metabolism - Eating smaller portions more frequently will help keep up your energy and raise your metabolism so you can burn calories even when you are not exercising.

10. Keep individually wrapped low-calorie snacks and fruits in the car. If possible, store bottles of water and snacks in a portable cooler or cooler bag, to keep things cool until you can get to them.

11. Prepare meals in advance - If you eat out a lot, prepare your meals at home and brown bag for school or work to help you make healthier meal choices while on the go.

12. Lighten your meals as the day goes on. Your body burns calories throughout the day, so eat a good breakfast, a medium lunch, and a light dinner with more veggies and no carbs at dinner.

13. Eat more whole grains. Opt for whole grains to add to your diet by checking the packaging to be sure that the first ingredient listed consists of "whole grains".

14. Check serving sizes to keep count of calories. For example 1/2 cup of rice=120 calories. But the serving size is four per container. Be careful how many servings you eat.

15. Read all labels and ingredients. Check to be sure what your eating doesn't contain high sugar or sodium content that will make you gain excess weight.

16. No fried or fatty foods. Cut out deep fried and fatty foods from your diet ie. donuts, french fries and potato chips.

17. No late night snacks - Monitor or eliminate your nighttime snacks. Those are the calories your body will have trouble burning off.

18. Aim for 30 minutes of cardio daily. At least 30 minutes of walking, jogging, running, or jumping rope can help you burn calories and shed unwanted pounds.

19. Don't obsess over the scale. Keep your scale in a basement or attic to keep from obsessing. Only weigh yourself once a week at a set time/day in the morning,right after you wake.

20. Keep food logs to monitor eating. Make notes of the food you ate, what time and the portion size to keep track of eating habits. The more honest and accurate you are, the better you will be at tracking.

Pescetarian: Someone who doesnít eat meat but eats fish or seafood.

Flexitarian: A hip and trendy word for what some people call a semi-vegetarian. Someone who isnít a vegetarian but eats several vegetarian meals a week and might be selective about what types of meat she does eat (such as organic chicken only) and how often.

Personal Information:
Southern Diva St8 out of Texas. I think we should all live by the golden rule, and strive to make this world a better place. Sounds corny, but that is how I really feel.

Other Information:
My hobbies are Shopping, Reading, Shopping, Watching Movies, and did I say Shopping? I have a serious shoe fetish, and can never pass up a pretty dress. I also love interior design and could watch HGTV sun up to sun down. I think the Tivo is the greatest invention since the automobile-not really, but its in the top 10 :-). I am totally addicted to any court shows- Judge Judy, Judge Mathis, The Peoples Court, Law and Order,The first 48, and CSI. I also love hospital dramas like House and Grey's . My all time favorite HBO shows are OZ, Sopranos, Six Feet Under, and Sex and The City-unfortunately, all shows have ended, but my love still goes on. I have a wonderful husband and two biological children 15 and 6, and one step son 14. They are all great kids.
