ANYTHING THAT I CAN DO TO AIDE ME IN MY EMOTIONAL EATING IS A PLUS.

JUNE 10-- DAY 14 FREEDOM CHALLENGE

Friday, July 11, 2008


JUNE 10


WATER REQUIRED 11.5---- CONSUMED 12

FRUITS 2 REQUIRED--CONSUMED 3 KIWI FRUIT, 1/4 CUP BLACKBERRIES, 1/2 CUP STRAWBERRIES.

VEGGIES REQUIRED 1 --CONSUMED 5 ---4 CUPS SPINACH, 1 CUP BROCCOLI, A LITTLE OF GRATED CARROTS, GREEN PEPPERS, ONIONS.

EXERCISE 33 MIN AEROBICS. THAT PILATES BALL WILL BE USED MORE SINCE I FOUND OUT THAT I WILL NOT FALL ON MY FACE FROM IT.

EXPERT SOLUTIONS:METABOLISM MISTAKES

1 – What is a better choice than diet pills? BETTER FOOD CHOICES, AND SPACING OUT MEAL DURING THE DAY.

2 – Why is (severely) restricting calories such a ‘bad’ thing? EATING TOO FEW CALORIES MAKES IT HARDER TO LOSE WEIGHT, SLOWS YOUR METABOLISM, CAUSES YOUR BODY TO LOSE MUSCLE AND AFFECT YOUR ORGANS.

3 – What should be ‘focused’ on in order to lose weight? NUTRITION, FITNESS, SLEEP, STRESS MANAGEMENT, THEY ALL WORK TOGETHER IN HELPING YOUR BODY FUNCTION AT HIGHER LEVELS.

    Woohoo on those veggies and fruit! That's pretty darned impressive! And sounds like you got in a fantastic full-body workout as well! As for the bike (or the treadmill) - I don't have to say anything - the family looks at the sweat, the fierce expression and the legs moving: they just kinda disappear and ask the question later. :)

Cheers,

1 – How are ‘running shoes’ designed? THEY HAVE TO ABSORB SHOCK WHEN YOUR FOOT HITS THE GROUND SO THEY HAVE MORE CUSHIONING. THEY ARE DESIGNED FOR FORWARD MOTION.

2 – How are ‘trail shoes’ designed? THEY HAVE ADDED TRACTION FOR RUNNING AND WALKING IN GRASS, MUD, AND ON TRAILS.

3 – How are ‘walking shoes’ designed? THESE SHOES ARE STIFFER . THEY PROVIDE MORE SUPPORT SINCE YOUR FOOT ROLLS FROM HEEL TO TOE.

4 – How are ‘cross training shoes’ designed? THE MOST VERSATILE SHOE. THEY GIVE YOU MORE SUPPORT AND CHANGES IN DIRECTION AND IMPACT.

5 – What are the 3 types of arches? FLAT FOOTED, HIGH ARCHES, AND THE NORMAL ARCH.

6 – How often should you replace your shoes? 5-6 MONTHS.

7 – When and why should you shop for shoes?IN THE EVENING WHEN YOUR FOOT TEND TO BE LARGER.

8 – After reading this article which type of shoe do you think you should be using for YOUR personal cardio choice? CROSS TRAINER FOR MY AEROBICS. I PRESENTLY HAVE A WALKING SHOE. I MAY INVEST IN THE NEAR FUTURE FOR A CROSS TRAINER SHOE.

    Neato. I'd keep the walking shoes, too, unless they're all worn out - you may prefer those for the days you just want to walk! :)

Great blog - love that you're getting in so many veggies! :)

Cheers,
Maya
