I find myself starting sentences with this a lot as I am on this journey... Right now I am reading Jillian Michaels' "Master Your Metabolism" and I thought I'd share a few things that struck me & I find myself repeating! =]
1. Did you know.... For each can of diet soft drink consumed each day, a person's risk of obesity goes up 41 PERCENT! (I don't drink diet pop because I can't stand fake sugar but, I know a lot of people that do and this statistic is crazy to me!)
2. Did you know... Not only does Garlic (and onions, chives, scallions... pretty much anything that makes your breath stink=]) keep insulin levels stable, it also lowers cholesterol and stimulate glutathione which is an antioxidant that fights free radicals!
3. Did you know... Whole eggs are nearly a perfect food... if you eat one with an orange, you'll get the only thing that is missing, vitamin C.
I'll share more as I go along... this is a really interesting book. I can't see myself doing everything that she says but I can definitely see myself doing some of it. I love reading things like this & hopefully Jillian doesn't mind me sharing with you!!
I can't believe today is November already. My diet & exercise have been relaxed lately because I haven't been feeling well and I was discouraged by not having a weight loss after trying so hard. Tomorrow is a new day though and the beginning of a new month where I am going to give it my best! Also, soccer season is officially over and that will give me more time. Halloween was also the start of the "holiday season". It has already been hard to leave the candy alone which is unusual for me. I wish everyone the best in the upcoming months with their wellness goals!
My scale is broken and I'm not sure if it is good or bad! I think I will weigh myself in the morning when I get to work. Playing soccer tonight with my girls was so much fun!!! Hopefully I can find an indoor team to play on this winter! Tomorrow is our Fall Family Picnic so I will be working late and doing laundry... I'll write more later (I always think that!). Hope everyone Enjoys Their Day!
