Food(s) for Thought
(The point is ..... do NOT go to the supermarket when you're tired, upset, hungry, angry or anything other than on track and motivated!) .... Please read and enjoy. This was written on reflection of one of those 'been-there-done-that-got-the-... Read more
Too much wheat in bananas!!
Yes, you may well laugh, but this is a typical example of what I believe to be the root cause of obesity today - lack of knowledge/education. I also believe there's no excuse any more. People don't read? But it's all over the news and radio. You... Read more
What will happen? What won't?
I'm not feeling quite so 'centered' today, so I'm attempting to inject a little more positivity into my day. I've spent a few minutes considering the following:
I've been doing very well the last week or so, but can feel myself crumbling a ... Read more
Attack of the Negativity Gnomes
They're back. I hate them. It's the wrong time of the month and they've regrouped overnight, planned their assault and are preparing for a five-pronged attack. I can already just about see them - looming on the horizon. What to do, what to do! A... Read more
Complete the following:
You can say things to yourself over and over and over - but NOTHING is quite so powerful as actually writing it down. With that in mind, I thought I'd share this little exercise that I like to do sometimes daily, sometimes once a week, sometimes... Read more
Sack of Spuds workout
So I took up two 2 kg potato sacks (convert to lbs if necessary). I stood with one sack in each hand, pulled in my tum, tucked in my bum, made sure I was standing straight and my posture was correct. I stood simply holding the two sacks for a we... Read more
Never shop when you're hungry
Over the years, it's something I've noticed time and again. Supermarkets are deadly places when you're hungry. You go in with a list and come out with an extra trolley-full of just-in-cases! You know the sort of food? Packets of 'mini' chocs jus... Read more
No exercise = SUGAR
I can see it coming a mile off and yet it sneaks up and grabs me from behind every single time. Might as well be wearing a blindfold. See, I don't know about you but when I exercise (and I do that a lot), the 'right' endorphins kick in and I fee... Read more
Hungry, so hungry
Oh, don't you just hate those days when you wake up and all you want to do is eat? Of course, that would be perfectly fine if all you wanted to do was eat fruit and vegetables, but life doesn't deal those cards very often, does it? Nope. I'm hav... Read more
It is time!
Time to get back on track. Haven't been around for a loooooooooonnnnngggg time. How easily life can get in the way sometimes, but here I am and it's time to get up, get moving, rethink my eating, get healthy, lose 9 pounds and ............... al... Read more
Someone asked me this morning how I motivate myself to do this. I answered 'I hate being fat', to which they replied 'You're not fat. You're just a little overweight.' My blood pressure soared instantly. I hate this. I really hate our lukewarm p... Read more
On the way to five-a-day
I don't know about you but I'm appalled at how difficult I find it sometimes to fit in five fruit/veggies a day. That's just pathetic, isn't it? I cringe at myself every time I think about it. I mean, exactly how completely warped is my diet if ... Read more
Are you feeling proud?
It's a question we should be asking ourselves every day, so if you haven't done it today already, now's the time. Stand in front of a mirror (or close your eyes) and ask yourself: What have you done today to make you feel proud?
Every day s... Read more
