Spark Friends ......

middle age spread! Perimenophause! HELP ME! Not gaining but not losing. I WILL BEAT THIS!!!

I am pondering a new exercise routine -- I currently walk away the pounds or treadmill. Looking for something new to add to the mix.

Suggestions appreciated!

    I'm in a similar boat. I'm 41 and my weight loss has been stalled three weeks. My routine was all Leslie Sansone and the treadmill. I NEEDED to do something to change it up so I did. I purchased a punching bag and boxing gloves. I purchased a leslie sansone cd with kick boxing and strength training. I also purchased wrist weights, tubes and resistance bands and lastly I started putting my kids games for the wii to good use, wii fit, wii fit plus, wii sports resort, all of the " just dance" games, etc. and then i bought a new one called walk it out. I saw one the other day called zumba... haven't purchased it yet but that is the next one I have my eye on.

Good luck with which ever new activity you choose.

    emoticon If you aren't already doing Strength Training, I definitely recommend it. Leslie has some Great Walks that incorporate Resistance Bands and light hand weights.
emoticon Also, be sure that you are including some intervals of Speed or Inclines with your Walking.

emoticon Good Luck!!

    Absolutely love this time of year although it was a bit prettier while living in New England in the Fall. I've noticed that time is flying by more quickly as I age. LOL

TRM Drink Recipes

Tuesday, September 09, 2014

Thought I would post these since I had a few sparkies ask about them. All I can say don't get caught up in the ingredients. Give them a try! I am a tea snob and LOVE LOVE LOVE OOLONG! I modified the GGMS and added Lime and it's beyond yummy.

Good Girl Moonshine (GGMS)

www.trimhealthymama.com/main-home/fr
ee-recipes/good-girl-moonshine-recipe/


my variation included 2 TBLS of lime juice

The Shrinker (I swear this has what has made me lose almost 10 pounds since I started drinking it 1 week ago) Yes, I said 10 lbs. The food plan started yesterday.


www.trimhealthymama.com/main-home/fr
ee-recipes/shrinker-recipe2/


In case anyone is interested, here was our food plan yesterday (dropped 3 lbs this morning)

Breakfast -- 2 eggs, scrambled with handful of mushrooms, TBLS of chives and shredded cheese. 2 slices of turkey bacon.
Lunch -- 1 low carb pita pocket with 1 wedge of laughing cow cheese, TBLS of mayo with low sodium turkey. 1 Gala apple.
Dinner -- Greek burger with tziki sauce and salad.
Snack -- peanut butter cup smoothier. (DELICIOUS!)

    I read the recipes for the drinks. Seems easy, not a lot of ingredients . But I am just a tad confused, you said your food plan did not start until yesterday. Does that mean that you lived off of only these two drinks for a week before you were able to eat actual food? Or were these drinks just added to your regular diet and your slowly allowing your body to get used to the changes your putting it through by beginning making changes to the food this week?

Sorry if you explained this before and I missed it.

    The drinks sound helpful. I'm a plain water girl... Boring, I know. But, it sounds like the drinks work if you weren't hungry yesterday.

I lost weight over the weekend .... I know I am shocked too!! LOL

I logged almost 34K steps between Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

I am LOVING the Trim Healthy Mama drinks. The eating portion starts today. I have so much energy from the Ginger drink (GGMS) it is ridiculous!

Can't wait for the rest of the week.

Happy Sparking!!

    WOW 34,000 steps... Where did you go, what did you do that you got in so much activity.

I'm not familiar with the Trim Healthy Momma Drinks. Obviously they are good for you or you wouldn't be drinking them as part of your program, but do they taste good? That is one of the biggest problems I have with energy drinks. I think they taste horrible.

I need to get back in a healthy routine. Been hanging around at the same weight for awhile now.
