    COOL! I saw both of you. Way to go...what a great cause, congrats to Team Shadden!

After one of my hubby's military deployments back in 1994 our family was followed on two separate interviews (one in our home) by a news channel in Florida. They filmed his homecoming after a long 8 months. It was so exciting, our son was a baby and our daughter was nearly three. We have a tape of it..good times.

emoticon emoticon Team Shadden, well done!

GARGLE WITH GARLIC

Garlic juice and garlic oil has been observed to reduce levels of circulating fat in the bloodstream, stabilize blood sugar levels and improve the fat burning rate in the liver. It also stimulates adrenaline hormone production in your body which can trigger fat release from storage tissue and use of these adipose stores for energy. So utilizing this potent flavor can actually help whittle away the waistline! Furthermore, garlic can stabilize cortisol levels reducing lean muscle mass breakdown which simply means you’re burning fat and building protein. You don’t have to actually drink or gargle garlic juice. The more convenient and less face puckering alternatives include whole bulbs,
minced garlic and supplement capsules. Keep a small bowl of gar-lic on the kitchen counter and include it in omelets, salads, stir fries, sauces and dressings. Just remember to brush your teeth. The supplement, EnerPrime, contains high allicin potential garlic concentrate, used since Biblical times for endurance and strength. In this form, the garlic is activated by water to form allicin which has powerful antioxidant and cardiovascular-supportive properties.

BLOW A BUBBLE

Studies have shown that chewing gum raises your metabolic rate by about 20 percent, allowing you to lose up to an extra 11 pounds of fat per year! This is partly due to the “twitching” effect – small muscular contractions resulting in an increase in burnt calories and boost in body temperature. In this case, those twitches are coming from all the tiny jaw and facial muscles involved in chewing. Just be careful to choose gum that doesn’t contain high amounts of sugar and remember that sugar-free gum contains potentially toxic artificial sweeteners. Excessive gum consumption can cause stomach discomfort and put you at a potential health risk from the chemicals in artificial
sweeteners. However, one to two pieces a day can be effective and will often help to curb your appetite.

    I did read somewhere that the chewing motion makes you want to eat more, but I have no idea where. I'll have to keep that tip in mind, thanks.

AUTO EXERCISE

Believe it or not, you actually can perform a workout routine in your car. While breaking a sweat while driving is near to impossible, you can use a simple calorie expending trick that musters up enough heat to give your metabolism an automobile boost. The trick is called “isometric” muscle contractions. This means that you use your muscles to apply a force against an object, but the muscles don’t actually move or change in length. For example, if you press both hands together as hard as possible and hold for 5-20 seconds, this is considered an isometric exercise. Other examples include thigh contractions, floor stomps, headrest pushes, butt squeezes, bicep flexing, shoulder shrug holds, and stomach tightening. You’ll be amazed at how much a series of these movements can raise your body’s temperature and increase the heart rate,
all without leaving the driver’s seat.

CHAINS OF FAT

Medium chain fatty acids, also called medium chain triglycerides,
are different than other fats. They are small and able to penetrate cell
membranes easily without requiring significant help from additional
proteins and enzymes for uptake and energy utilization. They are
preferentially burnt as fuel over other fats. They are digested and absorbed into the bloodstream much more efficiently than larger fatty acids so they can then travel into the liver for immediate conversion into energy, rather than to storage as fat. So how do you get them? Many supplement companies offer MCFA or MCT’s, often advertised as a great source of fat fuel during long term athletic activities. Natural food sources are limited but coconut oil and coconut milk are your best bets!
