Stephanie's fitness and health

I've been here at SP for wow, maybe a few months now? I definitely feel better that I'm actually doing something, though I am trying to focus more on being healthy than being "thin". I am vegan and I love that I can get meal plans here that don't consist of two meals of only salad everyday! (lol) A girl can only eat so much salad ;)

Hey; check it out! I read that for people who have trouble losing weight around the waist that there are two kinds of healthy carbs you should be eating: beans and whole grains. No kidding!

In a study, obese men and women who were put on a heart-healthy diet lost more belly fat when their daily meals emphasized these two foods rather than refined grains.
After an 18-month study, all participants ended up losing about the same amount of weight. BUT the people eating diets rich in beans and whole grains had especially good results around their middles. And all that was required for extra middle melting was eating whole grains instead of refined grains and replacing two daily grain servings with a couple of servings of legumes -- like lentils, chickpeas, or beans. These changes created a low-glycemic-index diet that was satisfying, blood-sugar-balancing, and belly-fat blasting! Pretty cool, hunh?

Hi!

I'm just passing through this time with this strange bit of trivia...

You're not going to believe this, but I just read that chewing gum is a brain booster! Seriously! The Researchers at Northwestern University found that people who chew gum have increased blood flow to the brain and an increase in cognitive performance. Moreover, people who chew gum have less stress, which protects brain cells from stress related hormones. The researchers recommended chewing gum particularly when you have challenging mental work to do.

Who knew?

Hi again!

Just popping in to let you know I'm doing pretty good; well...better than usual! The New Year has started off hard, but it's going pretty good for me now and I'm really excited.

We have to learn to be our own best friends because we fall too easily into the trap of being our own worst enemies. ~Roderick Thorp, Rainbow Drive

Hello! I'm back to pay you a little visit to see how the New Year has been treating you.

As for me, I haven't made much headway as far as weight loss goes, but I have re-adjusted my eating to improve my health and have been reaping the benefits of that first step back in the right direction; besides sticking to that goal, I have also been trying to get a grip on portion sizes and snacking needlessly and feel I am making some headway.

I sincerely hope that things are going well for you in this new year and that you will be able to achieve some of the commitments that you may have made for yourself concerning your weight and health.

Have a great week and keep on keeping on!

January sneaked up on me like a dream. Can you believe it's the 5th already?

Well, I did make a New Years commitment; I am returning to the way I was eating in 2009 and am going to get healthy yet again! I'm tired of limping my way through life; action speaks way louder than words.

How have things been going for you? Did you make a New Years commitment/resolution?

I hope you are doing well; please keep in touch.
