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.

Chore Exercise or Exercise is a Chore!

24 Apr

Ok so how many of you love doing chores.  How many of you love getting stuff done around the house.  I read this blog post from The Token Fat Girl  Click Here and it just reminded me of how many chores I used to do outside.  I

 

think when you are young you don’t think about chores being good for you because you are burning calories.  But a lot of chores that we do burn a lot of calories.  HAHA how many of you have worked up a sweat when you vacumm your house 🙂  Or how many of you put on music while you are cleaning and that makes you dance more.  Which in turn makes you move and burn calories more.  Gotta love that, when I saw celebrity Kristi Alley started dancing to lose weight I realized how much more I move when I am cleaning if I have music going.  I love listening to music anyway while I am cleaning, but just one more reason to listen some upbeat tunes!  The more we move in every day life the more weight you will lose or keep off.  If it is a life style change than the more we change our regular lifestyle to make us move more regularly.  I went hiking with my kids the other day as a family outing.  We have been getting in the habit of hanging out watching TV and I really want to do more of these types of activities with my family we hiked up one of the many hills or mountains in utah and got to see the city!!  So beautiful!  Go out and spend time with your loved ones! 🙂
