check out this article...

it lists "garlic", "clay", and "kefir" as the perfect trifecta to intestinal health.

The jumble of my brain!!

Monday, November 17, 2014 at 2:58 PM filed under General postings

I continue to learn and work at finding balance in my life.  Nutrition, exercise, relationships, 3 jobs, mom/wife responsibilites, school commitees and more!!

Since becoming a nanny (June 2013) I have much less "me time."  A couple of daylight hours to meal plan, FitClick track, reflect and read are really hard to come by.  When marching band season is in full swing (Aug-Oct) it is even worse!!

When things got really hectic this fall, I slacke

I just read an interview conducted by one of my favorite exercise/nutrition/motivation authors, Tom Venuto.  He interviewed Joel Marion who release a wellness system called "Cheat Your Way Thin."

November Update

Tuesday, November 16, 2010 at 10:51 AM filed under Weight Loss postings
Yay!  I reached another goal since last month's update.  My Body Fat % is now in the excellent range.  Very cool.

We are planning a trip to see family over Thanksgiving and I know my calories will probably be higher than usual.  I have been keeping fiber and water intake very high and I am preparing mentally for the return to "normal" as soon as we get home.  Last year my ...

Liquid Calories ("Inspired Shakes" might be worth it!)

Thursday, November 4, 2010 at 9:48 AM filed under Diet & Nutrition postings
From the beginning of my journey, one of the first changes I made was to eliminate most (if not all) calories from fluids.  Here is some of my rationale...

.   *  calories in drinks are usually 'empty' (no nutritional value)
.   *  the act of chewing is satisfying
.   *  I tend to gulp when I drink and not savor like I do when I eat solid food
.   *  I relate drinking with 'thirst...

Phase 3 (maintenance) Mindset

Friday, October 1, 2010 at 9:41 AM filed under Weight Loss postings
Today I need to remind myself of some basics.  I need to see the bigger picture and remember that the finish line is months away and that this is not a sprint but a steady march with a strategy to get there.  So I write this to put my mind in the right place.

I weigh myself every morning.  This is a good thing for me.  When the number is a little lower than yesterday there is a mini party in my dressing room :).  If it isn't lower I don't go into a major d...
