I'm Being A Regular Domestic Diva Today! :)

Friday, June 12, 2009

I decided to get off my posterior end and do something productive today. I started with vacuuming the floors and you wouldn't believe the dog hair. I've been restricted from repetitive motions up until last weekend. Today I just took the bull by the horns and decided to clean up the house a little. Our male dog has a thick coat and he's shedding his winter fur. When I took our fur babies to the vet yesterday, the vet told me to get an undercoat rake and comb him 2X a week. That will stop the excessive shedding and make the dog feel much better. You wouldn't believe the hair that came off that poor animal! I filled a whole wastebasket full of hair and could have kept going! He took a dim view of being groomed after about 15minutes so I quit. I was surprised that he lasted that long! But the hair I vacuumed off the carpet and floors told a real story! No wonder my sinuses have been stuffy!

Next I think I'll make the lasagna that I got the SP recipe for on Wednesday. It should be good. I'm looking forward to making the house smell spicy! Yum! I'm going to be a domestic diva today!

Make The Effort To Walk Today

Tuesday, June 09, 2009

Ever have one of those days when you just wake up feeling blah? Today is one of those days for me. I've decided that the remedy that I'll use to combat the blah feeling is exercise. I will be leaving the house shortly to take a walk around the neighborhood. Exercise is my drug of choice to combat the blahs and to garner some of those "feel good" endorphins. By noon time I should be ready to roll! The lesson here is to do something active, daily, for at least 30 minutes. Here I go!

If all these colorful emoticons don't unblah your day after your "feel good" workout, then I'm afraid there's not much else I can do for you!!! LOL!!!

Eating Breakfast Gets Your Day Off To The Right Start

Monday, June 08, 2009

Eating breakfast gets your day off to the right start. When I was a little child, I recall my mother insisting that I eat breakfast every morning. It became a habit. As a teenager, I experimented with different foods and eating or not eating them. I even tried not eating breakfast for a while. Guess what I discovered? Eating breakfast really does make you feel better and get you off to a great start in the morning! Whether you eat a big meal or just cereal, fruit and water, you need to refuel your body after not eating for 8+ hours. Advantages are: more energy, less fatigue, better concentration, less hunger at lunch time and more efficient body movements. There have been many studies done that support eating breakfast. So do your body a favor and give it the fuel it craves in the morning; even if you don't initially feel hungry. Eat a healthy breakfast. You'll be glad you did!

    This is so very true! Also, it's been said that if we skip breakfast we tend to eat more and gain weight. So, it is better to eat a balanced 3 meals a day...or 4-5 small meals a day; whichever works.

Today is the Start of a New, Fresh Week

Sunday, June 07, 2009

Today is the start of a new fresh week. I can be anything I want to be this week. I can be a success and I can be healthy. It's my decision and I'm going to be a healthy success. I will eat breakfast every day, I will eat lunch, dinner and 3 snacks to keep from getting overly hungry. I will drink my 64+ ounces of water and eat 5+ fruits/veggies. I will stay in my calorie range. It will be a rewarding, successful week!
