Gained it! Lose it the same way! One day at a TIME!

15 May

Ok so I read Andras Blog Love to Eat, Hate to Exercise!  I LOVE it.  She is fabulous and I really loved her post about How I did it!  I agree with basically everything.  She talks about the fact that you gain weight one day at a time so you can’t lose it just by doing or using one magical thing or pill or powder.  I so agree I tried to exercise, but that was not the way I lost most of my weight it made me look better, but the scale didn’t change much.  I joined weight watchers and watched what I ate.  I thought it worked great, but I also think that counting calories just writing it down in a journal could work too.  You just need some responsibility for what you are doing.  The one thing I can’t really agree on is the juicer part.  I have wanted to get one, and I really think I might after reading her blog.  I do agree focusing on eating more vegetables and fruits is a really smart idea and sometimes you just don’t have the time to eat as many as you should so I think juicing could be one of the ways to do it.  I have learned to love more vegetables than I used to, and they do make you feel fuller.  But like Andras Blog I believe you need to do many things, and you can’t expect everything to just fall off us all at once.  I also think that you have to start with the little things.  Start with changing one thing and than with another.  I know we all make New Year’s Resolutions and I truly believe that the reason so many of us don’t do them is we are trying to change everything in our life that we thing isn’t perfect.  When I think that we would be better off doing one thing each month.  Try to change things little by little.  Check out her Blog she looks Great.  And I love to read her posts.

Physical Plateau!

10 Apr

So I lost 60lbs almost 5 years ago than got pregnant had a baby lost the weight again, and now have found about 15 of those pounds.  This is a journey I am still happy with where I am at (sort of)  Happy, but want to lose it again.  But I feel like the stuff I would normally do to lose weight I could usually judge what I did or ate and could guess whether i would go up or down and now it seems to not be working.  I almost wanted to think I was pregnant because I would have a reason haha but I need to be more focuse write things down and I know most of weight loss about 80% ATLEAST is eating so thats what I need to do.  I did read this article that I thought was really good, and it reminded me what I did for the last 10lbs the first time.  I actually started running.  Now I am not normally a runner but I had a friend that wanted to run a 5k so I told her I would do it with her.  I still hate running.  I get so bored I don’t know why running for an hr is so different that stairs or the Arc Trainer, but for me it is.  Anyway Click Here if you want to read the article it was really good.  Made me remind myself what I needed to start doing and I probably should start running again.  My body isn’t use to it haha I don’t think it ever will be.  Anyway, just remember nothing changes until you change something!

Transforming your Tired Skin

27 Mar

I did a previous post on how working out can help your skin be better Click HERE but I was reading another article from a blog about what foods can help your skin change.  How the things we eat really affect how are skin is.  You can help your skin look more youthful, glowing, healthy, clear based off of some of the things you eat.  I know I have heard that berries of course of antioxidants so when you eat them you have more of it in your body, but sweet potatoes also have vitamin A and C that I have talked about earlier that can help your skin look better.  Also Salmon and specific nuts also help give you healthy fatty acids they are like carriers helping carry healthy nutrients to your skin cell membranes.  Healthy oils bring natural moisture to your skin Click Here  So interesting I know eating helps your body, losing weight, feeling better, and having more energy.  But didn’t know why exactly helps your skin.  Definitely their blog article!
