Did you hear about the bank-robbing sheep that keeps evading the cops?

He’s on the lamb.

Stop Saying "I can't"

Monday, September 03, 2012

emoticon

Your mind really can trump matter, particularly when that matter is hot out of the oven. New evidence demonstrates that when faced with temptation, people watching their weight who thought "I don't eat pie" versus those who thought "I can't eat pie" were better able to stick to their plan. The 'don't' statement signals a sense of determination and empowerment, which makes the refusal strategy more effective.

How does one little word change things? Framing your behavior as a 'don't' firmly places you in the driver's seat, whereas a 'can't' statement signals deprivation and a loss of power. In addition, the don't-versus-can't effect holds true when the statements are said aloud to food-pushing friends.

Bottom line: When you're tempted to have seconds, hold firm by saying, "No thanks, I don't want any more."

    Much of our battle is our mind. What our tapes in our mind keep telling us over and over. If those tapes are positive, you will succeed, but most of us have some negative tapes that we need to deal with. What I did was ignore those tapes with exercise. when I could physically feel better, these tapes stopped running. emoticon emoticon

Long Story, Short

Sunday, September 02, 2012

(From Weight Watchers Magazine)

Readers shared their weight-loss journeys-in six words.

1. Started. Stopped. Started. Won't give up.

2. Repeat offender finally figures it out.

3. Believed she could so she did.

4. My favorite jeans finally fit. Elation!

5. Giving my all - no going back.

6. Made up my mind. Lost my behind. (My personal favorite!)

7. Drive by instead of drive thru.

8. I dropped pounds. Now jaws drop.

Feel free to add to the list!

Mine is: NEVER giving up on this journey.

THUMBS UP/DOWN

Stairs 1, Elevator 0:

Yet another reason to hoof it up the steps - they're faster than taking the elevator! In a recent study, researchers found that walking up stairs was nearly three times as fast as waiting for the elevator.

Breath of dessert?

One company claims that simply inhaling a cartridge of "breathable desserts" such as apple pie helps cut cravings for the real thing. Thanks, but air a la mode doesn't entice me.

    Go Stairs!

Air chocolate is good, but you can't beat the real thing.

    With you on the elevator and dessert vote -- stairs are a great way to work in that little bit of natural exercise (and they get easier with repeated use). I'd rather skip the apple pie smell and go right to the apple.

3 ways to make a good first impression

Friday, August 31, 2012

1. Remember trait transfer. In “trait transference,” whatever you say about other people influences how people see you. If you describe a coworker as brilliant and charismatic, or arrogant and obnoxious, your acquaintance will tend to associate you with those qualities.

2. Laugh at yourself. Showing vulnerability and a sense of humor make you more likable and approachable.

3. Radiate energy and good humor. Because of the phenomenon of “emotional contagion,” people catch the emotions of other people, and they prefer to catch an upbeat, energetic mood.

    SOOOOOO True!!! I needed to be reminded of this. I tell my daughter all the time, "Give out what you want to get"...but lately, I think I've forgotton the energy and good humor part.
Thanks for the reminder-Love it!
