Hello everyone I just realized I had not been here in a long time. I am just getting over a bad kidney infection and it has taken it toll on my health.

Hope everyone is doing well and keeping on track to reach your goals.

Hey guys what a beautiful week we are having and no rain in sight very unusual indeed.
I picked my first full bowl of raspberries yesterday and my tomato plant gave me three nice tomatoes.
Hope everyone is getting sun for the vitamin D.

Oso, Washington a tiny but loved town has gone through so much death and sorrow this past week.
The little town in a valley just fifteen miles North of my home had a devastating mud slide
.
The death toll has risen to 24 and have 30 on the missing list.

I have friends with families who have lost loved ones and their homes there and it is very hard to know how they feel but I am sure it is a hollow place in their hearts.

Keep those who live in the Oso valley in your prayers and thoughts.

I love weight loss memoirs, ever since I read my first, The Adventures of Diet Girl by Shauna Reid, I have been hooked.

They can be hard to find, but to me, once they are found they are worth keeping and re-reading OVER and OVER again. They can be great motivation for me when I am feeling down.

I don't really look to them for advice (although I have walked away with some good tips). I know what worked for some people won't necessarily work for me. But, it is very nice to know that people have the same issues I do like backtracking and losing weight slowly over a large period of time, not insanely fast like in some reality T.V. shows.

The latest find is called Half-A$%ed by Jeanette Fulda. So far, I really love her sense of style in her writing. There was one part in particular that after I read it, I thought "wow, I need to share with others...."

This is from page Chapter Five, appropriately titled "Diet and Exercise." In it, Jeanette Fulda has become a bit frustrated that her MAJOR weight loss (30lbs in three months) has slowed down. She is pretty distraught until she has an epiphany.

She writes:

"About a month after I'd cracked open my cookbooks and wiped the cat hair off my treadmill, I was driving down the highway home from work, thinking about what I would make for dinner. The Parmesan chicken recipe had been tasty and pretty easy, but I'd set out ground turkey to thaw, so I should probably make something with that.

As I sailed past the entrance to the movie theatre filled with buttered popcorn, I had a sudden revelation. I would be doing this for the rest of my life. No more stopping at White Castle for handle little burgers I could hold in one hand and devour as I drove home. No more laps around the McDonald's drive-through. No more stopping at Dairy Queen even though I had a coupon for a free Blizzard. Things had changed. Forever.
I had started the long process of brainwashing myself into healthier habits.

As the movie theater moved into my rear view mirror, I was overwhelmed with the idea that I'd be managing these habits for the rest of my life. I was going to live another ten to twenty years because of all this healthy eating too, so I'd be stuck doing it even longer.

This wasn't a "diet," it was a "lifestyle change." I didn't even know what the word "diet" meant anymore. Being on a diet implies that you will eventually go off the diet. I had decided not to do anything that I was not prepared to do for the rest of my life."


That last sentence really spoke to me!
She even goes on to write something that I've come to learn about myself too....


"'Don't get crazy" became my number one rule. When I was hungry, I ate. If I really, really, really wanted a food, I ate it. I didn't want to fixate on something I couldn't have only to binge on it later. I didn't count calories because I knew it would drive me insane, obsessing over every detail, although I did measure out reasonable portions for my meals. ....I'd enjoyed the temporary pleasure of ice cream and candies at the expense of feeling good all the time. All this healthy living was starting to make me feel alive. I'd never even realized I felt half dead."

As I said I do learn things and find helpful hints along the way.
Hope this sheds a little light on your on new healthy lifestyle!

Sandy

SECRET WEAPON!

Friday, 07 February 2014

Hey, you've got it on you right now! But, you know what? It's not dangerous. In fact, you can actually take it right through one of those metal detectors at airport security with no problem, LOL. That secret weapon of yours can't hurt anybody. In fact, it can actually help YOU! Have I tweaked your curiosity yet? Well, let me continue and you'll see what I mean.

You see, so many people write asking what my "secret" is to successful weight-loss. It seems everybody is looking for that magic bullet, that special pill, (you've seen the commercials on TV), that perfect and "easiest" way to lose weight. But that's where your secret weapon comes in!

Now first, I'll remind you, (as if you need reminding), making changes in your eating habits is an important part of reaching your weight-loss goals. After all, it was those extra calories you've consumed over the years that lead to the extra pounds on your body. So, it stands to reason, in order to drop those pounds, you've got to drop the number of calories you consume everyday.

Second, to help give yourself a calorie-burning boost, you've got to get that body of yours moving with a good hour of sweatin' everyday! Hey, exercise is really your not so secret weapon for weight-loss. Only thing is, too many people ignore that fact by living very sedentary lifestyles and not getting those bodies of theirs moving at all. Come on now, give your body a hand at dropping those extra pounds by making exercise a must-do part of your lives everyday.

Eat less, exercise more, lose weight. Hey, that's really no big secret, is it? But here's the "secret weapon" you'll need and it's two words: POSITIVE ATTITUDE! Oh, if you could read some of the e-mail I receive! How often do I see people taking a defeatist attitude about their ability to lose weight? (Too many!) They tell me how many times they've tried to lose weight in the past and are so tired of trying, they're just about ready to give up! Hold it! Now think about it. If that's the way you feel, you're simply setting yourself up for defeat!

Ask yourself these questions: How is my life going to change by losing this weight? How will my health improve? How many years will I be adding to my life? What will I be able to do after losing the weight that I can't do now? HOW MUCH DO I WANT THIS? The answers to all of those questions should be nothing but POSITIVE. And that's the kind of ATTITUDE you've got to have to win this fight, a positive one!

Ready? Then AIM & FIRE that secret weapon of yours at the weight you want to lose. Because by using your secret weapon on them, your positive attitude, those extra pounds and those numbers on your scale will...GO DOWN!

Wednesday, 01 January 2014

HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYBODY! No matter how the weather is where you are today, I still say it's a beautiful day because...God has blessed us all to begin a BRAND NEW YEAR! Welcome to 2014! (Already? LOL.) The past couple of days here in my daily messages, I've talked about things you can do differently in 2014 to make sure you have a happier, healthier ending to this year than you did to 2013. Now, if I'd gazed into my crystal ball on New Year's Day, 2013, how would you look to me today, a year later?

All across America, people are making their New Year's resolutions. And some of those lists are, I'm sure, a mile long! LOL. Let's see, some people have made a resolution to quit smoking. And hey, I think that's a great one. Good luck to any of you who've vowed to kick that oh-so-bad for your body nicotine habit in 2014. Some of you may have made a resolution to go back to school this year, another good one. More schooling, besides making you smarter, can also lead to a higher paying job. Like I said, the list of resolutions is a long one and as varied as we are. But, I'm willing to bet, (without doing much research), that the number one resolution made by most people every year is probably to...LOSE WEIGHT!

Okay, raise your hands if you're in that group! (Hey, like I even have to ask.) In fact, one of the reasons you visit my web site and read my daily messages is to get that extra dose of motivation you need to work on reaching your weight-loss goals and...I'm glad you're here!

Monday, I talked about woulda, coulda, shoulda and the regrets you may have about your past weight-loss efforts. Yesterday, I talked about how the last day of 2013, New Year's Eve was The End of that year's weight-loss journey. And, of course, today New Year's Day is THE BEGINNING of the next chapter of that fight to reach your weight-loss goals. So tell me, how charged-up are you today to win this fight? How determined are you to put some real RESOLVE into your 2014 weight-loss RESOLUTION?

Every month, my home page features a new person who has reached their weight-loss goal. And I want you to remember, their successful journeys began a lot like yours. They may have made attempts to lose weight in the past but this time...they did it. And what did it take? Well, it took motivation, determination, self-control and of course, a daily dose of sweatin'! And, ya' know what? YOU'VE got all of those qualities inside you, right now! Visit me here everyday this year because I'll always be here to remind you that losing this weight is something only YOU can do FOR YOU!

Today, January 1st, 2014, get ready to make this the year you become that lighter, fat-fighter...that lean, mean sweatin' machine! And, oh yeah, as I gaze into my crystal ball one year from today...look! I see him or her. (Do you?) I'm talking about the NEW YOU. That's right, your goal can be SEEN...in 2014!

Had a pretty good day. Didn't do bad with the emotional eating today. Also did my exercises. emoticon

I am so glad your still with us.
Well here we are mid October and the colors on the trees here in Western Washington are putting on a show. Time for sweaters and hot cocoa.
We are headed to the October Fest in Leavenworth to enjoy all the songs and dancing they have wonderful art studios there as well.
We will visit our favorite orchard to pick up a box of apples and pears while we are in the area.
Halloween is around the corner and so are the temptations of the candy that comes with the holidays.
So make good choices and you will reach you goal.
Happy Autumn everyone, Sandy

I am so excited this evening as I just read in our local paper that the tribal members who are issuing the new Photo IDs are going to be at the Tulaip Indian Registration building to take Photos of members here in Washington State.
I am gong early as I expect the lines will be long. It will be nice to carry a photo ID with the Cherokee Nation Seal on the front.
I hope everyone gets there new photo IDs as soon as possible.
Have a wonderful weekend. Sandy

THAT'S A NEGATIVE!

Wednesday, 07 August 2013



Okay, we're gonna burst one of those diet myths today! You may have heard that some foods, because they're so low in calories and more difficult to digest, they up becoming "negative calorie" foods. The idea being that some foods are so low in calories and the body's digestion process itself, cause that food to have a "negative-calorie" affect when you eat them. That is, it costs your body more energy to burn the calories than those foods even contain! Well, I think you'll have to agree with me, at least it's an interesting concept, huh?

Chewing and digesting a stalk of celery burns about as many calories as when you sit watching paint dry!



Foods like celery and some citrus fruits have long enjoyed that claim. When you consider the miniscule number of calories in an entire stalk of celery, you may be tempted to fall for the negative-calorie legend. But when you consider the number of calories it takes your body to actually fuel the digestion process, those numbers are pretty miniscule, too. Although chewing and digesting a stalk of celery may seem like a lot of work, it actually burns about as many calories as when you sit watching paint dry!

Yes, certain fruits and vegetables do have extremely low calorie counts, such as celery, grapefruit and mushrooms. And while it might be tempting to think of them as negative-calorie foods, it's just not true. Now don't get me wrong. Those extremely low-calorie fruits and veggies are good for your body and important additions to your weight-loss program. But they're not going to give you that so-called negative-calorie affect you may have heard about.

The only true proven way to achieve a negative-calorie-energy balance for weight-loss, is to burn more calories than your body takes in. How many times have I told you that, huh? And how do you achieve that goal? Hey, I've told you that lots of times, too! You've got to cut back on the number of calories you consume each day and make exercise a daily part of your life.

Low-calorie, fiber-full and nutrient-rich foods will satisfy you for a lot fewer calories than the processed stuff that caused you to gain weight in the first place.



Be sure to eat more nutrient-dense foods that fill you up while providing plenty of vitamins, minerals, proteins and fiber, the good stuff your body needs. Those low-calorie, fiber-full and nutrient-rich foods will satisfy you for a lot fewer calories than the processed stuff that caused you to gain weight in the first place.

So, is there such a thing as "negative calorie" foods? The short answer is NO! But, there are plenty of foods you can eat, like lots of fresh fruits and vegetables that, along with your daily workouts will help you see a NEGATIVE effect on the numbers of that scale of yours! So, when planning your meals and snacks, I guess you should at least...THINK negative!

Love,

RICHARD

Well where is every one? I just returned from vacation in the Tri Cities at our Eastern Washington home and am suffering from dry dessert air allergies, sage brush and Russian olive trees really got me good this trip. We play golf at home at Canyon Lakes and I forgot how long it takes to play that course. I came home and crashed for two days just hung out in my PJs.
Loving the sunny weather since I returned home here on the west side I must have brought it home with me.
Hope everyone is doing well and staying busy.
Have a wonderful Sunday. Sandy

Today was sunny and was at 26 degrees this morning but now we are up to 50 so the day turned out better than I thought.

I did a digital camera class this morning in downtown Arlington and we had Paint the Town Purple for the Relay for Life fund raiser so I stayed busy all day. Had lots of fun and met a lot of new people, my kind of day.

Hope everyone has a great weekend. Sandy

Osiyo to all! Sandy, I share in your grief over Tazz. We lost a fur baby on November 26. Tigger, our big, beautiful orange tabby succumbed to FUS at the young age of 8. He was a great cat who would let my daughter put doll clothes on him and treat him like a doll, toting him around. He would just look at you like"hey, you gotta love her!". We know we'll see him and all our other beloved babies one day. Tiggie, we miss you!

Spring is on its way and the rain has been here much of the year most every day. Soon it will clear up and I can get out in the yard and work in the flower beds.
As everyone knows my Tazz ( my best friend for 16 1/2 years went to the rainbow bridge on Christmas Eve. I miss him a lot and though I know one day I will see him again it is still a loss that lingers in my heart daily.
I hope everyone at home is doing good and staying focused on your 2013 goals.
Post and let us know how your doing.
Sandy

Hi Everyone

Hope you like the new site navigation bar we launched today! We hope this simplifies the site for people looking around at the different options.

We're also excited about the new "Articles & Videos" homepage as a way to highlight the great content our team works hard to create in several different areas.

We put away all the Christmas totes in the garage on the top shelves and I am in the process of putting up new blinds in the foyer room to match the ones in the kitchen nook.
It is just to cold for me to even go outside so I am staying inside and doing some spring cleaning. My game room needs some serious attention it seem I still have autumn decorations in there that need to be put in totes and put in the garage, I will work on that this week.
Since Tazz has been gone I don't seem to be very motivated. Also my backside still hurts a lot from the fall and the knot on my head is there but getting smaller thank goodness.
Still hurt all over so am taking it easy with no WATP dvds for a little while my workouts are mainly with hand weights and resistance bands until I can get my lower body moving better.
Stay warm everyone will chat later. Sandy

My first week of the year has been bitter sweet. I was delivered the ashes of our Tazz the Cocker Spaniel we have loved for sixteen and a half years on Tuesday.
On Thursday after I got home I fell in the driveway on a sheet of ice caused by freezing rain. Friday I spent most of the day at the Urgent Care to be tested and poked all over.
I finished up today by buying a special charm for my bracelet of a dog and one of a cat so I have a special charm now for Tazz and one for our black cat Elvis who misses the dog very much.
I am hoping the new week will bring much better things to my life.
Best wishes to all for a great new week ahead. Sandy

Happy Monday everyone, it has been a beautiful day here. We are in the upper 70s and sunny skies now for over two weeks. We may even break a record for the rain gauge as well the old record for August through September is .19 inch of rain and right now we only .03 inch of rain measured for this time period. Pretty dry for thie West side of the mountain.
We had a great weekend starting off Friday with a shopping trip to the mall in Burlington and Saturday was a game of golf and a walking garage sale hunt for values in our neighborhood, we walked two and a half miles and it only cost us a $1.50 for a donation to the local school soccer team for their uniforms. So we did not find anything we needed so we left it for others to enjoy.
Sunday was a laid back and enjoy each others company and time to wind down before the new week started.
Hope everyone is doing well and staying busy and focused on your goals. Sandy

Good Monday morning to all. Hey we finally got a rain shower last night after 45 days without rain, seems for some that is no record but I live in the Seattle area where it rains almost daily so I was happy to see the clouds move in yesterday.
Now I won't have to drag out my hose and water the hanging baskets and the lawn!! A mini vacation from yard work,
I think I might just go shopping today to celebrate my freedom!!
Have a great week everyone. Sandy

Glad to hear that your Labor Day weekend was wonderful! Mine, too, was filled with household do's and done's!

Did you know that the Labor Day weekend is traditionally the weekend for Cherokee National Holiday? This was the 59th annual Cherokee National Holiday! I was there for the 53rd, and would like to be there next year. I was born in 1953, so I'd be celebrating the 60th with our Nation!

Check out the Cherokee Nation's website - It gives a lot of great information on CNH and so many other tribal things! www.cherokee.org

Donadagovi et tohi!

Until we meet again - Peace.

Hello everyone, we had a nice weekend starting with a game of golf on Friday and a picnic on Saturday.
Sunday we celebrated Hubby's birthday and cooked steak on the grill. We watched a lot of Nascar on TV this past weekend, it was his weekend to pick what we did.
I did drag him outside long enough to trim some bamboo back around the cedar trees and edge the yard and flower beds.
We washed all three vehicles on Monday and got a lot of exercise doing that.
All in all we enjoyed hanging around the house and being together.
Well school started here so it was less noisy around here with the kids gone to school as they usually ride their bikes and skate boards up and down our street.
Enjoy the rest of your week. Sandy

"BACK TO SCHOOL" how in the world is it already time for back to school?
I was at Joann's yesterday and they have all there Autumn decorations out for sale.
Where did Summer go?
I stayed busy all Summer but am not ready for the cooler weather yet seeing that we don't have much of a Summer on this side of the mountain.
I did pick raspberries, blueberries and strawberries as well as tomatoes from my plants today.
I will miss getting the fresh fruits and veggies from the flower beds.
Hope everyone is doing good. I plan a Buddy system after school is up and running to get us focused on ourselves again and back on track before the holidays hit.
Have a great rest of your week. Sandy

I saw on the news where the wild fires are up around Ellensburg Washingtonarea. Hubby said the smoke was so thick this morning he could not even see across to the street and Jump Off Joe was covered in smoke.
We are suppose to get a mini heat wave lasting about three days so we will get to the mid eighties.
Hope everyone there is doing good, Hubby is over therein the Tri Cities at that office for a couple of weeks.
Chat soon. Sandy

V- VISUALIZE HOW YOU WILL LOOK
A- ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR SUCCESSES
T- TREAT YOURSELF WITH RESPECT

I know how you feel - I just kicked my "domestic partner" to the curb on 7/16. Like you, I was so tired. I didn't realize how emotionally draining he was. Now, I feel really good, because I'm free of him and can now find the man that wants to treat me like I deserve to be treated.

Be kind to yourself. Do things that make you feel good!

Until we meet again - Peace.

Welcome to the team.
Sorry your depressed about what happened. Sometimes things happen for a reason you know and you will not realize it until a little later on in your life.
Maybe you should reflect your feelings in your journal and sometimes it just helps to write things down and get it off of your chest so you can move forward with your life.
I know I have been there before and it hurts for a while and soon the hurt goes away.
Keep in touch with friends and family and of course here on the chat board.
Keep your head held high and smile you deserved better anyway, Right!! Sandy

I've been quite depressed with my engagement breaking up. We were to be married in a few weeks. All I've been able to do is sleep for weeks. Today I went and got a haircut!

Hello everyone, we just got home from playing a full day of golf. It is beautiful here and a perfect temperature of 75 degrees for a high today. There has been a slight breeze and that blew all the clouds away early this morning.
There were tons of fireworks to see last night as they are legal here and people take full advantage of making noise on the fourth. Needless to say we got very little sleep last night but all in good fun.
We painted the pergola yesterday and it looks so nice, it was in need of a coat of fresh paint with all the wet weather here you can imagine that moss grows on anything that does not move faster than a snail. So we got a lot done in the past few days and more plans tomorrow as we are going to Whole Foods and Super Supplements over in Redman first thing in the morning and then over to Lowes to get mulch for the flower beds in the evening.
Plans for Saturday includes a picnic at Kayak State Park on the ocean so that will be fun.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week and keeping busy with friends and family.
Chat soon. Sandy

I know I am not as active on the team as I should be. We have been playing a lot of golf and have taken a couple of weekend trips.
Elvis the cat is getting very large he is almost 19 pounds and is forty two inches from the tip of his nose to the end of his tail.
Tazz the dog is getting very old in human years 102 this year. He is 16 years old and we don't expect him to be with us much longer so we have been taking him on trips with us and spending a lot of time with him.
My flowers are doing well there in Kennewick at our home there and the ones here are being over watered by Mother Nature, the Hosta are doing wonderful as are the hanging baskets and the entry flowers. The dahlias seem to be attracting the slugs this year. My one tomato plant is very healthy in bloom with hopes of having a real tomato this year. The Raspberries and Blueberries are loaded can't wait until they get ripe.
I can't believe this is the third week of June already the weather here still feels like April would feel there. The warmest day so far this year has been 76 degrees how crazy is that. I have not even worn a pair of shorts yet this year let alone getting any sun at all I am getting to look like the ladies that live on the West side of the mountain my skin is turning white instead of a nice Native American tan:) Life is what it is and I am enjoying every day of being healthy.
We celebrate our thirty first anniversary on the 27th of the month seems like yesterday we were standing in our back yard there in West Richland and having the preacher walk us through our wedding vows. I guess we are getting old!!
Hey I feel like I am still in my forties so I will just act like it as well.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful week. Sandy

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. My one tomato plant I bought full grown at Costco as they never grow from small plants over here. It has blooms on it now but no little tomatoes just yet. I am glad to see all the garden talk I sure miss my garden at home in Eastern Washington.
Over here at this home I pick up more golf balls than any thing I grow. My herbs are doing very well as they are left over from last year as all my flower beds are full of last years flowers and plants. That is one thing about the West side of the state it doesn't get cold enough to freeze things in the winter months even with snow.
I am having a busy weekend and keeping myself busy learning how to play golf, one of these days maybe I can keep up with Hubby.
Chat soon. Sandy

Planning is a key ingredient in making healthy choices. Make sure to include fresh fruits and veggies every day. They add much needed fiber to your diet with good for you carbs.
Break up your exercise into manageable time slots in order to get at least thirty minutes of cardio three times a week and the same with strength exercises.
Make each day count and it will all add up to weight loss and a healthy body.
Have a great week. Sandy

The emoticon is shinning and I got my lawn mowed and my purple petunias planted this morning. Now I am relaxing with a nice salad for lunch and watching the cooking channel.
Love to see new ideas on how to prepare foods.
Hope everyone is having a great day. Sandy

I am so ready for the rain to stop I have tall grass that needs to be mowed and I can't even plant my new petunias until the rain stops. I found some wave petunias in purple this year. All the other years they have been that pink color and was happy to find a new selection of colors this year.

Hope everyone is doing good, I have been keeping busy as usual with everyday life and staying focused on my exercise and diet.

Best wishes , Sandy
