Swaying is for trees

Sunday, June 12, 2011

When a thin pal orders a big meal, her tablemates are likely to follow suit. Lock in your healthful choice, and when the waiter asks if everyone is ready, say, "I know what I want-mind if I go first?"

    I noticed that a group of ladies often end up ordering the same thing. Dinner for me when I eat out is broiled fish, salad with dressing on the side and a vegetable instead of potato or rice. Lunch is soup and a salad. I also don't care for most diet dressings so I just dip my fork in a dressing I like and use very little of it that way.

    Another challenge, but I have learned not to let others influence my choices - even when they try to talk me out of it. Thanks for sharing, and have a fantastic day!

Oxygen-mask Rule

Saturday, June 11, 2011

The oxygen-mask rule applies to eating, too. So many women put all their time and energy into making sure their loved ones eat heathfully, but then make bad food choices for themselves. Witness the apple slices and organic peanut butter in your little ones backpack and the...well, nada that's edible in your bag. (Mints don't count.)

While fixing your kids' snack or a whole-wheat wrap for your guy, take a minute to throw together an equally nutritious nibble for yourself, such as a pear and 1 ounce of cheddar, or roll up a second wrap for youself.

See the bright side

3 ways to think more positively.

Give Thanks. Tell others what you're grateful for. When you share positivity, the energy changes.

Keep Moving. Stay physically and mentally active. Otherwise, moods can spiral downwards.

Focus Forward. Lofty aims improve your outlook. Live in the future with short- and long-term goals.

"Diet Foods" aren't always

Wednesday, June 08, 2011

Manufacturers often shrink portions so they can make eye-catching claims such as lowfat on the box. But when was the last time you ate only 7 potato chips? Eyeball the serving size. If it's 2 tiny cookies emoticon emoticon, think, Will I really stop after 2? No? Move on to a single serving of something that WILL satisfy.

    So true I've started making my own snack packs also, the 100 calorie packs are much more expensive and not satisfying. Thanks for pointing it out to all Judy. emoticon emoticon

    You are so right about this. The 100 cal. packages we can save money and just make our own 100 cal packages. You know the opposite is also true.
