Olive oil vs. Canola oil

I recently read an article that said canola oil is better for you than olive oil due to a certain type of fat.

Either way - they are better for you than vegetable oil!

Just What I Needed

When I really don't feel like going to the gym or working out I try to reind myself that exercise always give me a kick start. No matter how I'm feeling, (grumpy , lazy, sick), I always feel better if I start moving.

Get Your Motor Running!

Every morning, whether I will be going to the gym or not, I spend 5 to 10 minutes doing a few exercises before I jump in the shower. Not things I track, but some days a couple of hundred arm circles, or maybe some lunges or marching in place... Just enough to rev up my body for the day.

Olive oil on EVERYTHING!

No more butter neccesary?I replaced butter with extra virgin olive oil, at my boyfriends request (he's a health nut). I didn't like the idea at first since i love butter but i tried it. Now I love it! I've shaved inches off my waist and discovered flavored oils! My fav is Sciabica's!

What Would a Healthy Eater Do?

Before I eat something outside of a regular meal, I ask myself whether someone with a healthy relationship with food (like I strive for) would make the same choice. This makes me stop and think a second...and maybe make a different choice.

Life is a Game

Making life a game is what keeps me on track to accomplishing my goals. Setting up goals and then keeping track of how well you are doing can be hard sometimes in life, but if you set it up as a game and give yourself something to "win" may help keep you motivated.

sodas were my enemy, water is my friend

Who knew fiber would make such a difference in my weight loss? I bought berries fresh when I could and when I couldn't I bought frozen {which turned out to be cheaper and better}. Changed to whole wheat pasta, fresh veggies, high fiber cereals, sandwich thins and albacore tuna to start and no sodas!
