Portion Control

Saturday, May 12, 2012


Portion Control per Dr. Oz....

Forget about scales and measuring cups. You can use your hands to measure the right portion size:

Carbs = Fist
A serving of carbs should be about the size of your fist.

Protein = Palm
A serving of meat, poultry or fish should be about the size of your palm.


Fats = Thumb
A serving of fats should be about the size of your thumb.


Fruits and Veggies = Handfuls
For fruits and veggies, grab all you can hold!

Always combine your carbs with fats (but no more than a thumbís worth). This will help you slow sugar absorption and control your weight.

MOTIVATION

Friday, May 11, 2012

"The secret of discipline is motivation. When a man is
sufficiently motivated, discipline will take care of itself."

-Alexander Paterson

This quote is right on time for me. I'm finally back in a good place with my workouts and now I have to work on getting my eating (and lack there of) in order.

Have a Fabulous Friday Sparkers!!!

SHUT UP and GET UP!!!

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

I haven't had any sleep.
I'm tired.
I've (literally) been awake ALL night.
I need sleep.
I don't want to get up.
It is too cold outside of these covers.
I don't feel like changing clothes.
I don't feel like putting on socks, shoes and a sports bra.
I have horrible cramps with a headache to match.
I don't feel well enough.
I just flat out don't feel like working out.
What different will it make?!?
I can't do that workout. It is toooo long and hard.

Excuses...Excuses...EXCUSES!!!

As long as I laid there and went through all this I could have been half way done with the workout.

I told myself to just shut up and get up!

If you can't make it through the whole 55 minutes then do what you can today and do better tomorrow.


Well I shut up!

I got up!

AND

I made it through the whole 55 minutes of Turbo Fire and LOVED it. I didn't think I could do it. This was my first time trying the 55 Fire Class. It was awesome. I'm super uncoordinated and slow, but I'm proud to say I kept up very well. This was a major accomplishment for me which I followed up with 1 mile of WATP for a total of 70 minutes of cardio!!! Completing this 55 minute Turbo Fire workout gave my confidence and self esteem a major boost! I'm soooo happy that I shut up and got up.


Next I will complete the 60 minute class. emoticon

When you THINK you can't...KNOW that YOU actually CAN!!! Be like NIKE and JUST DO IT!!!!
