Various Ramblings of a Blogger

Teach our children young what a serving size looks like. 

When out to eat at a restaurant, most places do not give you a serving size but probably 2.  Ask right away for a take home container & package up 1/2 of the dinner.  You will be pleasantly surprised at how filling the meal still was & you have some for lunch or dinner the next day.

Drink your WATER people :)

Never feel bad about saying "No, thank you".  Even if it's to a friend.  If someone is serving something you KNOW you shouldn't have why in the world would you eat it?  Don't compromise yourself.  Set the example!

Take your weight, cut it in half & drink that much in fluid ounces of water a DAY.  Minimum.  Adding more to that would be great!

Stop eating directly out of containers, bags, boxes, etc.  Mindless eating will ADD CALORIES FAST!

Keep to the outside perimeter of the grocery store.  That is where most of the healthier stuff is.  No preservatives, etc

Read the labels on all your food!  If you can't pronounce it RESEARCH it.  Actually, you probably shouldn't be eating it if you can't pronounce it.

Water, water, water, water (get the hint?)

You're getting SLLLEEEEEPPPPYYYYY.  Make sure you are getting between 7 - 9 hours of sleep a night.  This is SO important for your health & weight loss.  When we are tired we tend to eat more & make not so great decisions.

After a run :)
Sweat.  Sweat.  Sweat.  Get out there & do something.  Play with your kids.  Go for a walk or a bike ride with your honey, or a friend.  Just get your heart rate up & get moving!  Sweating is a GOOD thing! 

Can you add anything to this list? 

Be Blessed & Healthy!!!
