WOO HOO WE'RE HALF WAY THERE!

Saturday, January 17, 2009

If you've made it this far, congratulations! I know it's not easy staying on track day after day, but that's what it takes if you really want to get healthy. Today is your chance to sit back, take stock of how far you've come and reward yourself for all your hard work. The challenges are all very easy today, so enjoy this break and gather your energy for your new challenges tomorrow.

Your Active Challenge

Accumulate at least 10 minutes of extra walking today.
Remember, you can split it up or do it all at once...just keep track of the time.

Your Exercise Challenge

Rest.
You have no structured routines today except for some light stretching, so take some time to rest your body.

Your Flexibility Challenge

Take 3-5 minutes to perform the exercises in the Seated Stretch Workout.

Your Nutrition Challenge

Check in with yourself.
Take at least five minutes today to flip through your journal and checklists, reading through all of the nutrition challenges you've completed. Write down the hardest challenge you've experienced so far and the easiest. Keep this information handy for future challenges.

Your Mind/Body Challenge

Reward yourself.
Take at least five minutes today and think or write about what you've accomplished so far in the 30-day challenge. Then make a list of five things you could do to reward yourself for your hard work. Choose one thing from that list and either do it today or make plans for doing it in the future. Some ideas:

Schedule a massage for next week
Download a new song for your MP3 player
Buy a book or magazine you've been wanting to read
Rent your favorite movie for an afternoon treat
Sleep in one morning
Go to bed early one night

Your Day Fifteen Checklist
How'd you do with your challenges today? Use this checklist to cross off everything you accomplished or make notes on what you didn't accomplish and why. You can also use the checklist to make substitutions for any challenges that didn't work for you or create even more challenges for yourself.

REST? That would be what you say? LOL
Today I definetly did different thing from the norm I did my bulk cooking so that i would have three different kinds of soups in single serving sizes for our lunches on the days that we both work. I did my cleaning of course Not all of it but most of it I will finish the rest of it tomorrow Plus I want to make up a few low fat pizza pops ahead so that we have our suppers premade on the days we both work too!
Then I changed out the old seat on my stationary bike adn got on it for a half hour! No day of rest for this chick!

  


I hope you're feeling energetic today, because

Friday, January 16, 2009

I hope you're feeling energetic today, becauseour challenges are getting a bit more difficult. Today you'll actually be combining cardio and upper body strength training, but remember that you can always modify the workouts to fit your schedule and fitness level. Your nutrition challenge will also be a tough one - you're not changing what you're eating, but how you're eating so you may need to take some time to think about how you'll change your eating habits. The good news is, you're only doing it for today and it's just an experiment. Do your best to follow through with all the challenges today and to be creative if some of these challenges don't work for you.

Your Active Challenge

Sit on an exercise ball for at least 5-10 minutes today.
You can do this while working, watching TV, reading, etc. If you don't have an exercise ball, spend 5-10 minutes standing rather than sitting at some point during the day

Your Exercise Challenge - Strength & Cardio

Part one: Do at least 20 minutes of medium-high intensity cardio exercise.
Begin with a warm up, then increase your intensity (either by going faster, higher or increasing resistance) so that you're at a level 5-6 on the this perceived exertion scale. Stay there for 3 minutes, then increase your intensity to Level 7-8 for 1 minute. Alternate 3 minutes at Level 5-6 with 1 minute at Level 7-8 for 20 or more minutes.

Part two:

Either before or after your cardio (or at a different time today), perform 1-3 sets of 12-16 reps of the following upper body exercises, using enough weight that you can ONLY complete the desired number of reps. 1-2 sets of you're a beginner, 2-3 sets for int/adv.

Pushups
Chest Press
Back Extension on the Ball
Lat Pull with Bands
Seated Overhead Press
Tricep Extension w/ Bands
Bicep Curls

You can find details as well as substitutions for these moves at this Upper Body Progression Workout.

Your Flexibility Challenge

Part one: Stretch for at least 5 minutes after your workout.
Your options:

Lower Body Stretches
Total Body Stretch
Part 2: Perform this Seated Stretching Routine at least once today. Another option is to perform each of the following stretches:
Neck Stretches
Back Stretch
Trunk Twist
Shoulder Stretch
Lower Back Stretch
As always, feel free to substitute with any moves you like.

Your Nutrition Challenge

Change your eating habits for one day.
Using the information you got from yesterday's challenge, change your normal eating patterns to see if this new way of eating works better or worse.

For example, if you usually eat three large meals and two small snacks, split your larger meals and eat half at one time and the other half when you feel hungry again (or 2-3 hours later). If you usually go long periods of time between meals, have a snack in between. If you usually skip breakfast, try eating something in the morning. At the end of the day, write down what you did and how you felt. Were you more energetic? Was this way of eating better or worse? If it was better, could you eat that way more often?

Your Mind/Body Challenge

One-Minute Meditation. Find a quiet place to sit and close your eyes. Breathe deeply and focus on your breath by counting to three for each inhale and three for each exhale. Continue this for at least one minute (or more if you have the time). If your mind wanders, notice what you're thinking about and then gently focus on your breath.
If you have a hard time finding a quiet place, try your car, the bathroom, your desk during a lull or, if you're at home, a time when the kids are occupied.

Your Day Fourteen Checklist
How'd you do with your challenges today? Use this checklist to cross off everything you accomplished or make notes on what you didn't accomplish and why. You can also use the checklist to make substitutions for any challenges that didn't work for you or create even more challenges for yourself.


  


You should be feeling pretty good about yourself

Thursday, January 15, 2009

If you've completed all the challenges so far, you should be feeling pretty good about yourself. You should also be more aware of what you do each day that either moves you towards a healthier lifestyle or takes you away from it. Your challenges today will help you with that, especially the nutrition challenge where you'll take some time to think about how you eat and how that affects your energy levels. In other words, are your eating habits helping you or hurting you? Hopefully, this information will give you more insight into your body and open your mind to new possibilities.

Your Active Challenge

Accumulate at least 15 minutes of extra walking today.
Do it all together or split it up throughout the day, making sure you keep track of the time. This can be anything including walking around the office, taking the stairs, walking the dog for extra time, etc.

Your Exercise Challenge - Light Cardio

Do a steady, light-medium cardio workout for at least 20 minutes or more.
This can be any activity as long as you can get your heart rate into the lower end of your target heart rate zone. On this perceived exertion scale you would stay around level 4-5.

Your Flexibility Challenge

Perform the following stretches at least twice today.
For the dynamic moves, do each for 10-12 reps. For the static stretches, hold each one for 15-30 seconds.

Dynamic Standing Cat Stretch
Hanging Back Stretch
Warrior I
Spine Twist
Seated Hamstring Stretch
Quad Stretch


You can find instructions for these exercises at Morning & Evening Yoga and Total Body Stretch.

As always, feel free to do your own thing or choose a different flexibility workout.

Your Nutrition Challenge - Examine your habits

Examine your diet and eating patterns.
Without changing your normal eating habits, take some time to write down everything you eat today, what time you ate and then rate your energy levels after each meal from 1-5 (1 being very energetic and 5 being not energetic at all). At the end of the day, answer the following questions in your journal:

How many times did you eat today?
How many meals did you eat?
How many snacks did you eat?
How long did you go between your meals/snacks?
How would you rate your overall energy for the day?
When were you the most alert and energetic?
How do you think what you ate affected your energy levels?
Take some time to read through your answers and ask yourself if what/when you're eating is helping you or hurting you. Would you feel better if you ate smaller meals more often or do larger meals with small snacks keep you going? Sometimes the way we eat is simply a habit that's become ingrained so ask yourself - is there a better way? If so, write down a different way of eating you'd be willing to try for one day and what you would need to do it. Keep this handy - you'll need this information for tomorrow's nutrition challenge.

Your Mind/Body Challenge

3-Minute Total Relaxation
Lie down in a quiet place and close your eyes. Begin by tensing and contracting your muscles starting with your feet. Curl your feet and toes, then hold that as you move up and squeeze the calves, then the quads, then the glutes. Hold the lower body and feet very tight and move up, contracting the abs and then the arms, curling your hands into tight fists. Keep holding everything tight as you squeeze your shoulders up towards your ears, clench your jaw and squeeze your eyes shut tight. When everything is tight and tense, hold it for 5 seconds, feeling your muscles start to burn. Then on a long exhale relax everything, letting your muscles melt and your body sink into the floor as the tension drains away. Continue relaxing and breathing for at least one minute or longer.

Your Day Thirteen Checklist

How'd you do with your challenges today? Use this checklist to cross off everything you accomplished or make notes on what you didn't accomplish and why. You can also use the checklist to make substitutions for any challenges that didn't work for you or create even more challenges for yourself.

What kind of Oxidizer are you?

Thursday, January 15, 2009

Slow Oxidizers
Keep in mind that carbohydrates are made of smaller molecules called glucose. The more complex the carbohydrate, the more glucose molecules linked together. Slow oxidizers utilize the nutrients in their food slowly and do not release glucose into the blood quickly enough. As a result, energy production and availability are delayed. To best serve your metabolism and to feel energized both physically and mentally, you require foods with a higher percentage of carbohydrates. Your ideal maconutrient ratio is 60 percent carbs, 25 percent protein and 15 percent fat.

Proteins
The best proteins for slow oxidizers are found in leaner meats. It's not that you can never have steak again, but, high-fat proteins slow the rate at which you convert nutrients into energy, which is what you're already doing too slowly, so the less the better. In general, I suggest you stick to the following list: white-meat chicken, turkey breast, lean pork, catfish, cod, flounder, perch, sole, trout, white-meat tuna, swordfish, low-fat cheese, low-fat cottage cheese, skim milk, low-fat yogurt, egg whites.

Carbohydrates
Although your metabolic type is better than the others at processing carbohydrates, you still have to pick and choose carefully. You want to avoid simple carbs, which break down to their simple form of sugar very quickly, and choose complex carbs instead. Follow this list of ideal carbohydrates when deciding on a meal or snack:

Vegetables: asparagus, cauliflower, celery, mushrooms, spinach, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, collard greens, cucumbers, garlic, kale, leafy greens, onions, peppers, scallions, sprouts, tomatoes, watercress, beets, eggplant, jicama, okra, yellow squash, zucchini

Fruits: apples, berries, cherries, citrus fruits, peaches, pears, apricots, plums, tropical fruits, olives
Grains: barley, brown rice, buckwheat, corn, couscous, kasha, millet, oat, quinoa, rye, spelt

Legumes: tempeh and tofu; beans, peas (should be eaten fresh, never dried)

Fats
You should follow a low-fat diet to keep your metabolism working smoothly. This does not mean no fat because fat is an essential part of any healthy diet. You should allow 15 percent of your caloric intake to come from fat. You can go over that percentage if you like, but eating foods that are too high in fat can make you feel lethargic, anxious, and irritable. Choose from this list of fats when cooking a meal or having a snack:
Nuts/seeds: raw and unsalted only eat very sparingly
Fats/oils: vegetable or nut oils such as almond, coconut, flaxseed, olive, peanut, sunflower, walnut

Things to keep in mind
It's not enough to know the foods that are ideal for you You also have to learn which foods are the worst for you. If you find yourself straying from the list of suggestions, remind yourself of the following guidelines.
Limit your intake of fats and oils, as they will further slow your ability to convert food into energy. Avoid red meat unless it is very lean and stay away from high-fat dairy, nut butters.

Don't drink alcohol. It's most often accompanied by empty calories, which can lead to a sugar crash as well as an increased appetite. If you choose to have a drink, avoid sugary cocktails, beer, and wine. Stick to clear alcohols like vodka and rum with calorie-free mixers like diet and club soda.
Don't drink too much caffeine. This too is less of a concern for you than it is for fast oxidizers, but caffeine gives you energy by acting on your adrenal glands, causing them to overproduce adrenaline. When the caffeine's effect has worn off, you feel tired and sluggish.
Don't exceed one serving per meal of simple or starchy carbs like potato, pasta, and rice, and always eat it with a lean protein to help stabilize your blood sugar. Keep in mind that 1/3 cup of pasta is a serving.
Remember to consume your ideal foods in accordance with your caloric allowance; otherwise you will not lose weight.

The Balance Oxidizer
If you are a balanced oxidizer, your diet is the easiest to follow since you require an equal percentage of carbs, fats, and proteins in order to optimally process, produce, and use the energy from your food. You feel your best on a diet that incorporates a wide range of foods. Your ideal macronutrient ratio is 40 percent carbs, 30 percent protein, and 30 percent fat.
Proteins | Carbs | Fats | Things to Keep In Mind

Proteins
You operate best when you are getting 30 percent of your total calories from protein. Choose from this list of proteins when deciding on a meal or snack: herring, sardines, anchovies, salmon, shellfish (mussels, lobster, shrimp, crab, oysters, scallops), octopus, squid, dark tuna, eggs, white-meat chicken, turkey breast, lean pork, catfish, cod, flounder, perch, sole, trout, white tuna, swordfish, low-fat cheese, low-fat cottage cheese, skim milk, low-fat yogurt, and egg whites.

Carbohydrates
With regard to carbs, the most significant difference between balanced, fast, and slow oxidizers is not the types of carbs allowed but the quantity. You should get 40 percent of your nutrients from carbs, but like everyone, you should avoid simple carbs and foods that have a high Glycemic Load value. Refined sugars, those found in cookies, sweets, and soda and processed grains like white bread and white rice, should be shunned whenever possible, especially on a weight-loss regimen. You'll do best with a mix of fruits and vegetables from both the fast and slow oxidizers' carb lists.

Vegetables: asparagus, cauliflower, celery, mushrooms, spinach, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, collard greens, cucumbers, garlic, kale, leafy greens, onions, peppers, scallions, sprouts, tomatoes, watercress, beets, eggplant, jicama, okra, yellow squash, zucchini
Fruits: apples, berries, cherries, citrus fruits, peaches, pears, apricots, plums, tropical fruits
Grains: barley, brown rice, buckwheat, corn, couscous, kasha, millet, oat, quinoa, rye, spelt
Legumes/lentils: tempeh, tofu, beans, peas (all fresh, nothing dried)

Fats
To best support your metabolism, you should be getting roughly 30 percent of your calories from natural oils and fats. Don't eat excessive amounts of fat, but don't specifically restrict your fat intake. You can choose from fats on both the fast and slow oxidizers' lists of permissible fats.

Nuts/seeds: walnuts, pumpkin seeds, peanuts, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, almonds, cashews, Brazil nuts, filberts, pecans, pistachios, coconut, macadamias
Fats/oils: butter, cream, almond oil, peanut oil, coconut oil, sesame oil, flaxseed oil, sunflower oil, walnut oil

Things to Keep In Mind...
Eat the foods that are ideal for you, and remember the following guidelines of what to avoid.
Don't eat meals made up of just one macronutrient. Make sure you adhere to your ideal ratio of 40 percent carbs, 30 percent protein, and 30 percent fat.

Don't drink alcohol. It's often accompanied by empty calories, which can lead to a sugar crash as well as an increased appetite. If you choose to have a drink, avoid sugary cocktails, beer, and wine. Stick to clear alcohols like vodka and rum with calorie-free mixers like diet and club soda.
Don't eat foods that have a high Glycemic Load value. If you should happen to eat foods with a high GL value, make sure you accompany them with protein in order to slow the rate of oxidation and stabilize blood sugar and energy levels.
Don't drink too much caffeine. In the forms of coffee, tea, and soda, caffeine gives you short-term energy by signaling your adrenal glands to release adrenaline into your blood. When the caffeine wears off, you feel tired and weak.
Don't overcook your meat. Avoid overcooked animal products because heat destroys essential amino acids and valuable enzymes.

Fast Oxidizers
Keep in mind that carbohydrates are made of smaller molecules called glucose. The more complex the carbohydrate, the more glucose molecules linked together. Fast oxidizers breakdown the nutrients in their food rapidly; as a result, glucose is released into the blood quickly. The carbs you consume will be turned into energy immediately; your body will store the excess carbs as fat. So for a fast oxidizer, foods with high carb ratios cause fatigue and carb cravings and promote fat storage.
Fast oxidizers should eat foods with more proteins and fats in order to slow their rate of oxidation, and to better promote stable glucose (blood sugar) and sustained energy levels. Make sure there is protein in everything you eat, including snacks. Your ideal macronutrient ratio is 20 percent carbs, 50 percent protein, and 30 percent fat.

Proteins
All proteins are not created equal. In addition to chicken and fish, I suggest eating a wide range of proteins that will help slow your rate of oxidation, including: herring, sardines, anchovies wild game, salmon, shellfish (mussels, lobster, shrimp, crab, oysters, scallops), octopus, squid, dark tuna, cottage cheese, milk, yogurt, eggs, cheese and turkey.

Carbohydrates
Your metabolism thrives when your carbohydrate intake is limited, but there are different kinds of carbs. Some aren't as bad for you as others. Avoid simple carbs, which convert to sugar quickly in the bloodstream. The carbs you can incorporate into your diet are the complex kind. Here are the complex carbs I recommend:

Vegetables: asparagus, cauliflower, celery, mushrooms, spinach

Fruits avocados, olives, apples, and pears (in limited quantity and never without protein on the side)
Grains: sprouted-grain bread only if possible (Ezekiel bread is a well-known brand that is available at supermarkets and health food stores)
Legumes: tempeh, tofu
Fats
To best support your metabolism, you should be getting roughly 30 percent of your daily caloric intake from natural oils and fats. Here are the fats I recommend:
Nuts/seeds: walnuts, pumpkin seeds, peanuts, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, almonds, cashews, Brazil nuts, filberts, pecans, pistachios, coconut, macadamias
Fat/oils: butter, cream, almond oil, peanut oil, coconut oil, sesame oil, flaxseed oil, sunflower oil, walnut oil

Things to keep in mind
Along with knowing the foods that are ideal for you, it is important to know the foods that are the worst for you. You don't always have to eat off the ideal foods list, but the following foods will sabotage your weight-loss efforts.

Don't ever eat a meal that is predominantly carbohydrates.

Don't drink alcohol. It's most often accompanied by empty calories, and it will lead to a sugar crash as well as an increased ap�petite. If you choose to have a drink, avoid sugary cocktails, beer, and wine. Stick to clear alcohols like vodka and rum with calorie-free mixers like diet and club soda.
Don't eat carbohydrates that are high on the glycemic load. It is important for all metabolic types to limit their high-GL intake, but it is especially crucial for you. If, on occasion, you eat high-GL foods, make sure you combine them with a protein in order to slow the release of blood sugar.
Don't drink too much caffeine. Caffeine speeds the rate of oxidation, which is the exact opposite of what you want. Avoid caffeinated beverages whenever possible, and keep your over all caffeine consumption to a minimum aim for no more than 1-2 eight-ounce cups per day.
Don't overcook your meat. Avoid overcooked animal products because heat destroys essential amino acids and valuable enzymes.
You will have fewer physical ailments and feel energized if you eat the foods that contain the ideal macronutrient ratio for your metabolic type. You must remember to keep within your caloric allowance in order to lose weight.

Processed foods are in fact poison to the human body. They mean certain illness and disease and inevitable demise!
