COMPETITION

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

Do you feel as if you're in competition with every woman's body you see? How do you stop this negative thinking?

Think of your body as an instrument, not an ornament. Focus on what it does for you: breathe, run and keep blood flowing. If you're truly stuck in comparison mode, repeating a mantra like "I am I; you are you" can help break the habit.

QUICK CALORIE CUT

Monday, May 30, 2011

A simple way to keep yourself from going for seconds or more at family meals? Fill your plate in the kitchen and keep the serving platters there-not on the dining table. In one study, researchers videotaped people eating family-style. When asked how many servings they'd consumed, all study subjects thought they'd eaten one or two. But most had polished off three or four servings without realizing it.

    For me, family style eating only happens on holidays. And holidays are famous for adding on the pounds! That ought to tell us something. Most people have the serving dishes on the table I think. Chris

BURN MORE CALORIES

Sunday, May 29, 2011

...BY WALKING WITH FRIENDS

The news about walking just keeps getting better. Not only does it help you burn calories-about 100 per mile-and give your heart a workout, but a recent study at the University of Illinois suggests that regular walking might even make you smarter by improving the connectivity of important brain circuits.

The American Heart Association recommends that you aim for at least 30 minutes of brisk walking five days a week. But getting off the couch can be a challenge. One solution? Join a walking group-or start your own. Being involved with a walking group applies a helpful does of peer pressure that inspires you to walk more regularly and go longer distances-resulting in more calories burned.

So, reach out to your friends, neigbors, co-workers, relatives and start emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
