Trader Joe's

Sunday, April 29, 2012

My daughter wanted to pay more attention to her eating habits, less fast food and more stir-frys unless it's her favorite subway sandwich, oven grilled chicken with lots of veggies on whole wheat.

She had been doing her homework watching her favorite You Tube videos, Benji man(organic) where he makes those Awesome ! Stir-frys with Shrimp, Beef or chicken with different sauces such as orange-ginger,general tso, and original .

when we got home we stir-fried a few of his dishes.

one of her favorites.

Our stir-frys were delicious.

we also ate Chobani Greek Yogurt for a snack.

Friday, September 09, 2011

I have 16 Weeks lefted until the end of the year to get my Health back on track.

Being out sick from April 20th until now I didn't put forth my best. Some of the problems were due to me and some due to my Doctor.

All is well and I'm back to work. This time I will set Mini Goals each Week

1. drink more water
3.cut out Sweets..... gradually

Being at work 8 hours aday will help me, stay focused, especialy snacking and less Stress is my Goal.

Now I have 2 Options

Been there Done That, I got Discouraged for a minute because of all the hard work I had worked for had to be put on hold until my Health Improved. Listening to my Doctor it worked out for the best.

I'm feeling what normal people Blood Pressure should be ....120/80

I'm on the right road again

My Blood Pressure is Under Control, I feel so much better

4 Tips For Dieting In Stressful Times

Thursday, August 04, 2011

During Stressful Times It's easy To Reconnect With Old friends Like Ben & Jerry or A Slice Of Chocolate Cake

1.) Eats Lots Of Vatimin C. Keep EATING Fruits And Veggies Rich In Vatimin C Like Broccoli, Spinach And Berries.

Studies Have Shown
That Vatimin C Helps The Body Manage Stress More Effectively By Boosting Natural Defenses That Keep You Healthy And Balanced.

2.) Don't Punish Yourself. If You Spend The Night With Hagen Daaz, FORGIVE Yourself.
Don't Starve Yourself The Next Day To Break Even. Just Get Back On The Horse with Your Next Meal .
Denying Your Body FOOD And Dwelling On Slip-Ups Will Only Add More Stress To Your Life. Just Move On !

3.) Exercise More
Working Out For Atleast 20-30 Minutes Can Incresae Your Endorphines Leaving You Exhilarated And Refresh And Less Tense. Plus Exercise Burn Calories And Can Curb Appetite Because Of The Hormones Releases During Exercise

4.) Get Some REST. When You're Tired Or Run Down Everything Feels A Lot Worse Than Actually is.

    Wow! I don't think I've ever had any Ben & Jerry's but did you HAVE to show it! Anyway, I don't think I missed anything. I do like all types of berries - they are great plain and simple! In fact, the berries and freggie pics look better than the ice cream!

Thanks for posting!

    I totally agree with you. I'm going to make it a point to walk on the WW bridge at least 2 - 3 days a week after I get off from work in the morning. This way my workout is done if I have to return to work that night. This walk is mostly on an incline. So, all I have to say for myself is,"Hello Sexy Legs". emoticon OMG! I just love your new background.

The Heart Of The Matter

Thursday, May 26, 2011

On April 2o, 2011 I was Hospitalized with Hypertension Crises, Ruled Out Mini Stroke. Since then I have been home recovering, reading up on more Information about High Blood Pressure

which by the way measures the force of Blood against your Artery Walls. When it's consistenly high, it can WAKEN YOUR BLOOD VESSELS and significantly increase your risk of HEART ATTACK, STROKE and KIDNEY FAILURE.

I'm Thankful I got passed all those mentioned above by taking control and making Lifestyle Changes.

*Cut Down On SALT

You should be eating 2,300 milligrams of sodium aday.
Limit Salt by Buy fresh, plain frozen or canned vgegies that say " NO SALT ADDED" Use Fresh meat and FIsh. Use Herbs, Spices and Salt-Free seasoning blends, Cut back on Instant Rice, Pasta, or Cereal which tends to have added Salt.
Rinse canned foods, such as Tuna look for low- or reduced-Sodium, or NO SALT -ADDED.
Remember, Kosher Salt and Sea Salt are just that- SALT !

*STRESS LESS-Too much Stress can cause HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, an IRREGULAR HEART BEAT and WEAKEN your IMMUNE SYSTEM slowing down don't overcroud your schedule, getting enough Sleep, Exercising and Taking time to Relax.

*EXERCISE-30 to 60 minutes aday, break down your sessions to 10-minute Intervals through the day.

*LIMIT ALCOHOL- Though can actually lower your Blood Pressure at the time you are drinking it. When it wears off it makes your Blood Pressure Rise.You don't have to cut out alcohol all together, but LIMIT how much you drink.

Knowledge is Power, after my Hospital Stay I can never read enough Informatio on my High Blood Pressure.

I'm doing better with my new medication at this point.

    I'm so glad you are better and learning how to control the hypertension. I appreciate your posting this blog, DH was just diagnosed this week and I've learned so much just from reading your blog and the comments. I have so much more to learn but you have motivated me to get out there and research. Thanks for sharing with us.

    emoticonSounds like a rough time...do you have a copy of the D.A.S.H. program? (Dietary Approach to Stopping Hypertension, I think...) It's available online and in book form (why buy the book when it's free online?) Here are several links you may find helpful:

m/consumers/ho/nut.dash.diet.pdf (actually, if you go to www.healthyinfo.com/consumers, about halfway down, you will find a section on Heart Health that contains several references to DASH)


If you are interested, I have several .pdf DASH cookbooks that I will share if you send me your e-mail address. (I don't know how to make attachments in SparkMail.)

    So good to hear from you again! Scary that you had to go through that, too. Glad that you're all right. It's an eye opener how much salt is in processed food. Will share your blog with others, and refer back to it for myself.

    Nice blog! People don't realize that 2,300mg of salt is one Teaspoon!!! I've learned so many salt free ways to season my foods, like with pure Madras Curry, Smoked Paprika, Smoked Chipotle Pepper, Garlic & Onion Powder, using marinades like lemon juice, lime juice, balsamic vinegar, plain rice vinegar. All can give great flavor to foods without the added salt, and I add chopped garlic to practically everything!!!

Thanks for sharing, keep getting your rest too!
