ENJOY WHATEVER YOU DECIDE TO EAT

Saturday, August 07, 2010

Just had to create this blog...
Just finished reading a delightful blog from THE SLOWEST LOSER team: How to lose 8 pounds in 13 hours. It was so funny.

The gem in it was some tips about never eating when you're not hungry, eating slowly, not overestimating your calories burned, AND... ENJOY WHATEVER YOU DECIDE TO EAT!

That last bit really hit home. I read all these fantastic diets...most of them filled with things I would never eat, or recipes with more than 3 ingredients which I would never cook. If I could just find a diet based on French & Italian bread, butter, raspberry jam, 1/2 & 1/2, Reeses pb cups, I would be in diet heaven. But alas, I have to eat these in moderation, balanced by protein, veg and fruit in larger quantities. Okay, Okay. Reality sucks!

    That's so right! Eat it, enjoy it and move on. The operative word being "move".

    I agree we should enjoy what we eat. If we are going to change to a healthier lifestyle which includes our diets then it should be based on what we enjoy and will use.

I really enjoyed your blog. You put some hard core truths into a humorous and fun summary. I do agree-whatever we do chose to eat we really should enjoy it. Sometimes it takes a bit of experimentation, but nutrition doesn't need to be something dreadful. emoticon

    How wonderful! I've met with one fellow sparker, she happens to live in the same city and I do and only a couple of blocks from me!
I was thrilled to meet her, isn't it great to be able to meet members face to face?

Abraham Hicks' Recipe for Joy...just had to share

Sunday, July 25, 2010

Recipe for Joy

Seek joy, first and foremost.
Seek reasons to laugh.
Seek reasons to offer words of praise to self and others.
Seek beauty in nature, beasts and other humans.
Seek reasons to love. In every segment of every day look for something that brings forth within you a feeling of love.
Seek that which uplifts you.
Seek opportunities to offer that which uplifts another.
Seek a feeling of Well-being.
Know that your value can only be measured in terms of Joy.
Acknowledge your absolute freedom to do any of these things or to not do any of these things for it is, without exception, your choice in every moment of every day.

Curves Since June 24th

Thursday, July 22, 2010

I have been faithful to the three times a week since June 24th. [Pat on the back!] Went to give blood today and my iron was too low to donate! Among the causes of low iron is new physical activity! Who woulda thunk it??? She indicated that my body will have stablized the iron in about 3 weeks. Meanwhile, beef, spinach, peas...

    Hello Gail! I didn't know that new exercises would affect our iron either! We learn something every day and thanks for that info!

    I had never heard that exercise affected your Iron count. I guess it is a good thing that I LOVE Spinach. And I ate a Spinach Omelet before I donated blood on Tuesday.
Go Spinach!! emoticon

Curves!

Saturday, June 26, 2010

HI! Yesterday I signed up for Curves. Today I went for my first event. Did a one time around circuit for my first time...Pretty out of shape. But Suzy, my trainer was impressed at how much I remembered from doing Curves a few years ago. It's going to take a while to build up...need to be patient with my body, and at the same time consistent! emoticon

    I hope you enjoy Curves as much as I do. If you really Push yourself you WILL get results. But it can be all too easy to 'Go through the Motions' on the machines. If your Club offer Curves Smart, I would sign up for it. The Computer helps keep you focused during the Circuit.

    I've thought of joining Curves and wondered how I'd fare on those machines.
Now if I can just find someone in my area who belongs to I could hitch a ride with them ~ I don't drive :-)
Let us know how you do there? Sounds great to me!
