The Power of "YES".


Can You Really Get Skinny by Eating Fat-Free Foods and Drinking Diet Soda?

If only life were sooooo EASY!!!!  Wouldn’t it be great if all we had to do was eat all the foods labeled “fat-free” and drink “diet” soda (since that has ZERO calories) and we would all be SKINNY!!!!  Ha…. Good Luck!  Have you tried that theory out?  How many of you didn’t lose weight?  Dr.

Be a healthy role model for children

You are the most important influence on your child. You can do many things to help your children develop healthy eating habits for life. Offering a variety of foods helps children get the nutrients they need from every food group. They will also be more likely to try new foods and to like more foods. When children develop a taste for many types of foods, it’s easier to plan family meals. Cook together, eat together, talk together, and make mealtime a family time!

sleep better

Jusy read a few tips from Humana on achieving a restful sleep. Turn down the heat. Write a to do list so you can relax and turn off your mind. Keep any and all light out of your room, including, phones and other electronic devices. Use a white noise machine to drown out sounds in the house. Stop hitting the snooze button, as it interferes with quality of sleep. Add 30 minutes of vigorous exercise to your daily routine. (at least 4 hours before bed)

Learning more everyday

I'm sick. I don't get sick often, but here I am, laying on the couch and wishing that I was feeling better. At least not feeling well gives me a chance to catch up on a few things. I've been reading my fitness magazines and I am watching some specials on Netflicks. I have found two that really peaked my interest. The first is Hungry for change. In it there were experts in diet and nutrition. Of these experts, the two women battled back stage 4 cancer and at least three of the men had lost about 100 pounds each. One of the men lost several hundred pounds.

The Sign Says, "You Are Here!" by Jane Birr-Life Coach

 Picture yourself on a trail in the woods and coming upon one of those “You are Here” signs. They help us get our bearings so we know where we are so we can move in the right direction toward our goal. 


 Small bites 'trick' your brain into believing you are eating more food. According to Dieuwerke Bolhuis, who studies food research at Wageningen University in the Netherlands, the more bites you take, the brains 'taste' system is activated and the more 'full' you feel. Food for thought next time you are chowing down on chips and dip. Take smaller bites. Have a smaller waistline. Easy right? 

March is National Nutrition Month

 This year marks the 40th Anniversary of National Nutrition Month.   The theme is “Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day.”  I love it! As you well know, I am very vocal about fads.  I am one that does not support “diets” or “fads”.  I love this year’s theme, as it is realistic, attainable, and personal.
