Some Daily Inspiration

It’s still early and there is time to do a quick cardio while the kids are just anappin.  I am definetly craving somethin junkfoodish but mindset is key here.  So I am going to eat a healthy turkey sandwich, throw in a 20 minute Turbofire workout and just get it done.  I am getting a little bored with the same sandwiches so I’ll have to get some more ideas and pre prep some food to keep from splurging on junk foods.  I stopped shopping while I am hungry and I don’t buy sweets like cookies anymore.  I buy more fruits and veggies and salads and yogurts. Meal replacement drinks line my fridge and I start my day with eggs to eat less throughout the day.

Berries and Health

Berries and Health

Healthy food to eat

Berries and health go together. Berries help bring down your blood pressure and boost your levels of HDL (good) cholesterol. Studies showed that when men and women with heart risk disease factors ate a cup of berries every day for eight weeks, they had a five percent increase in their HDL cholesterol and a one and a half decrease in their systolic blood pressure reading. That is a very good reason why we should add berries to our diet. Berries go good by themselves or you can add them to your oatmeal and salads. Other foods you can add berries to include salads and smoothies. I like to put raspberries or blueberries on my waffles and pancakes. Berries also come in fruit cup mixtures, yogurts, and some ice creams. You can also buy berry juices at the grocery store. Just try to keep in mind that berries and health go together so why not add berries to your grocery cart when you are shopping.

Health Benefits of Berries to consider while you are shopping

Welcome to my weightloss and fitness blog

Welcome to my weight loss and fitness blog.  I hope you will find helpful information that is helpful in your everyday life and join in the quest to fight obesity and other health related problems that come from being overweight.  Feel free to leave comments and connect with me on Facebook.  It may seem like a long journey but I am certain that anything we set our mind to we can accomplish.   Check back frequently for pictures and other stories.

The three things I did today to help lose weight and feel better about myself.

1.  I decided to do Chalene Johnson’s Kick and Punch 48 min cardio workout.

2.  Took time to enjoy the laughter of my kids and look at their Christmas wishlists.

3.  Cleaned house to burn more calories.

I got tired around 35 minutes in this workout but I keep going.  It really  was motivational to hear her cheer you through the end even though you want to say ok, i did 35 minutes and that should be good.  Felt great to finish the whole thing.  And I guess doing the workout first thing after I got up really set the pace for the rest of the day.  Very Positive!
