    Late last year, I read a Forbes article detailing the morning routines of 12 women leaders. It was a fascinating read and … intimidating as hell, to be honest. While I might not be considered a “leader,” necessarily, I usually consider myself to be a fairly successful and functioning adult, but I found myself questioning my habits. My daily smoothie, packed with delicious and nutritious ingredients though it may be, started to seem pretty boring and lame, and should I be doing some sort of high-level class in the morning instead of swimming laps? No. It didn’t take…

Calorie-wise it was a fine meal. Same with the fries, although no one can delude themselves into thinking fries are healthy in any way, but having a half cup of French fries is not the end of the…

    Most young adults might assume they have years before needing to worry about their cholesterol. But new findings suggest that even slightly high cholesterol levels in otherwise healthy adults between the ages of 35 and 55 can have long-term impacts on their heart health, with every decade of high cholesterol increasing their chances of heart disease by 39 percent.

    I wanted to start eating better carbs, so I'm switching from white rice/pasta, to long grain brown rice, and I was just putting in my calories into MFP and 1 cup of rice came out to 680 calories, does this sound right?! http://www.myfitnesspal.com/en/food/...rice-137891013 If so, I feel like I need to give it up because having .5 cup of rice for lunch and dinner doesn't fill me up at all and takes up such a huge portion of my calories =( Just wanted to see what you all thought, thank you!

I've been and plan on continuing to breastfeed, but as the months go on, I'd like to continue losing the pregnancy weight too. I'm interested to hear from others how best to do this- obviously I don't want to diminish milk supply at all. Baby is more important than any diet for me! Is it too early to even think about dieting? I found that I lost 5 kg immediately post-birth and then another 5 kg the week following, but since then my weight has stayed steady or increased a little (that's my fault though, as I turn to…

    This mornings weigh in just made me sick. Devastating.  I have officially undone two years of hard work. I am back to my January 2013 weight. Fock. I also took measurements. Waist - 46.5 in Right arm- 18 in Left thigh - 31.5 in Hips - 52.5 in Bottom belly/pouch - 55 in Chest - 42 in I'm just... Disgusted. But it's definitely motivation to make the necessary changes.

    10 Jan 2015 | 2:16 pm
    When I first started losing weight, it was self-motivating. At the beginning of this blog I did not have any support, or readers, or comments for awhile... and that was fine! I was using this as a record of the journey (and wow, what a record it has become). I didn't have any lost pounds yet, or smaller sizes, or better health to make me want to keep going yet. When I decided to change my life, the change itself was motivating. Just *knowing* I was doing something big... something that could lead me down new roads... was exciting. Just getting up and planning to eat a salad at lunch felt…

    Well, we're a week into the new year already and how much progress have I made? None with the weight... none. I'm not frustrated, I am just surprised how quickly the time is flying by already and how easy it is to just let that happen. I've been busy, but like I wrote in my last post, I'm making the effort now to take better care of me. I'm not doing as great as I want to be doing; I think back to when the habit was... and priority was... to bike 6 days a week, to eat lots of healthy things and avoid the processed. It's harder to get back to it than it was to keep it. I will remember this…

    26 Jan 2015 | 5:00 am
    Was starting a regular meditation practice one of your goals for the New Year? I know that, for me, I wanted to take the usual 10 to 15 minutes most days of the week that I meditate and increase it a bit — even if it’s just five minutes of calm — so that meditating is truly a daily habit and not just something I do when I’m stressed or “feel like it.” And that’s going pretty well. But I can always use meditation tips to help me strengthen my practice — and I know there are a lot of you who want to give meditation a try but just aren’t sure…

    Update on the 52 Whiskys In 52 Weeks Project: It’s Week 49 and I’ve only clocked up 13! I’ve tried to get into the spirit of things but I think maybe I just don’t like whisky. I’ve dabbled across the islands, Highlands, Lowlands and Speyside and while the milder fellas taste less like punishment, it’s not exciting me like it would if it were 52 gins or 52 chocolate bars. It’s mostly likely because I just slurp about a teaspoon’s worth then declare, “Bleeeeurgh!”. And I’m still intrigued by the romance and history and…

But he has a lot of hobbies. And he likes to keep the email relating to these hobbies completely segregated. So he has: one email account for family correspondence, one for online shopping, one for bird watching, one for the allotment, one for golf and one for photography. Personally I’m a Gmail devotee, corralling my different email addresses (personal, online shopping, blog & business) into…

    October started out with a visit to Italy. First I stayed with Julia for an Up & Running workathon. This included a wee photo shoot to redo all the photos and videos in our running courses. I’ve been busting to get them done professionally for years. Most of the originals were clumsily shot on my old iPhone 3 in the hallway of an Edinburgh hotel room, on the very first day I met Julia in person. We kept stopping and starting as the cleaner made her way in and out of the rooms with the vacuum cleaner. They didn’t quite match my vision of perfection but if we’d…

    There have been moments in my life when I’ve sensed the presence of a deceased loved one. While warm and bittersweet, I understand those feelings to be resurrected memories of the connection we had when they were alive; me consciously sating some need I perhaps hadn’t completely identified. I don’t believe those vague presences stem from a visit by their spirit. That’s why I can’t explain what happened last night. I often employ the “Just ignore it, it will go away” approach to healthcare. But after a months-long battle with hip pain – in which the last few days I’ve been…

I need to be busy to have fun. Hiking, sightseeing, shopping, going to a play. THAT’S fun. Sitting around doing nothing? Capital B boring. Then I saw the ocean from the balcony of our 12th floor hotel room at North Myrtle Beach and I didn’t care if I did anything else all…

Second only to the pain of personally losing something or someone we love is watching someone we care about lose something they love. Conversely, the same is true when we witness their Phoenix moment, when they rise above the loss. Some people – including me – wondered if Jim would sell his place and move away from the memory of that night in February. But he meant what he said when the fire still smoldered: “I’ll rebuild.”I bought this bracelet yesterday: When I…

Sure, it's got plenty of healthful stuff in it, but spoon for spoon, it contains the sugar of Froot Loops. And I mean "spoon" given that the makers report that a serving is a mere 2 tablespoons. For reference that photo up above shows one tablespoon. Suggesting two of those is a serving, to me at least, seems more than a touch hopeful as I struggle to imagine anyone only having 2 tablespoons of their breakfast cereal, especially one that's billed as incredibly healthful.

    This guest post is from Sally Collins, a local teacher and real food enthusiast who was inspired to try to make a difference in her students' education by ensuring their education included a healthy focus on healthy food. Here's a follow up highlighting some of what she's done with the $50,000 grant she received from Ontario's Ministry of Education in support of healthy eating initiatives.In my guest post on June 2nd, 2014, I told you about the $50,000 healthy eating grant that our high school, Norman Johnston Alternate, had received.

  • Sneaky Sugars: They’re in Damn Near Everything in Your Pantry

    22 Jan 2015 | 6:00 am
    (CC BY-NC-SA 2.0) Food Thinkers/Flickr Probably the simplest way to lose (or at least not gain) excess weight is to eliminate added sugars as much as possible. Added sugar is the stuff in packaged food products, not the granulated sugar that you yourself spoon into your tea or coffee or onto your oatmeal or grapefruit. Unfortunately, this is difficult to accomplish, given that added sugars are now present in almost everything on the supermarket shelves – unless you’re in the cleaning products aisle. I was reminded of that fact by Lisa Kaplan Gordon, who pointed out that it’s…
  • Nutritious Soups Can Cut Calories (But Watch the Sodium)

    21 Jan 2015 | 6:00 am
    (CC BY 2.0) Whitney/Flickr Starting a meal with soup may help fill you up enough to reduce the calories you consume at the rest of the meal without setting you up to overeat later, according to some researchers. But for this to work, the soup needs to be broth- or vegetable-based, not a high-calorie cheesy or creamy soup. You are more likely to be successful with this strategy if the foods you eat following the soup are served in smaller portions than your usual amounts, because overeating is often a response to big portions rather than unsatisfied hunger. You can also use soup as a…
  • The Fat Gene Carries Less Weight Than We Thought

    20 Jan 2015 | 6:00 am
    (CC BY 2.0) Seattle Municipal Archives We don’t know exactly how many genes there are in the human genome. The most recent estimates put the number at somewhere between 19,000 and 21,000, although that’s just for protein-encoding genes; if you add in genes that produce functional RNA molecules, we could be talking in the neighborhood of 44,000. Whatever our actual gene count, only one of them has a variant that has been found to be consistently linked with obesity, and it is called FTO. I’m not sure what that stands for, but it is easy to remember if you think of it as an…

This is unfortunate because a new study has shown that lack of exercise is responsible for killing more than twice as many people as obesity.

Antioxidants, potassium, vitamin C – and calories Pumpkin and winter squash (including acorn, butternut and Hubbard) are in the same plant family, and their nutrient content is similar.

    My initial thought when I decided to join the Day in my Life link-up was: I can’t imagine anyone cares what I do all day/what my routine looks like? And then, like some sort of law of attraction, I began to receive a flurry of questions from friends online and off. How different is your routine in Austin versus Oakland? How many times a week do you go to the gym? How early do you get up?! When will you find your new Austin comfy-routine? (yep. that final one was posed to me by me.) What made me smile the most was the complete lack of questions about what I eat during my day. I…

  • Golf Club Insurance Rates & Public Fire Protection Classification

    Golf club insurance premiums are directly related to the level of risk your commercial property poses to guests as well as the surrounding territory. This may be of particular importance to golf club insurance policy holders, as properties tend to be in communities that are fairly remote. A club may pose a certain amount of risk to their own property as well as neighbouring residential or commercial properties. The Fire Underwriters Survey analyzes data in order to arrive at a classification of individual communities across Canada. Where is your club located? This can affect a commercial…

  • Private School Insurance Addresses Allegations of Fraud

    Dozens of private schools in Ontario have been given a failing grade by the Ministry of Education. What the data shows is that a number of institutions have been fraudulently handing out diplomas to their students. As well, the provincial auditor has accused some schools of handing out higher grades than deserved and course credits despite a lack of attendance. What has resulted is an increase in the oversight and a higher level of scrutiny of the inner workings of Ontario institutions. This means there is an increase in the need for improved private school insurance protection. The…

In my book, The Paleo Diet Revised (2010)1 I warned against drinking artificially sweetened soft drinks and further strengthened my opposition to all artificial sweeteners in 2012 with The Paleo Answer.2 Over the past few years numerous epidemiological (population), animal, tissue and human studies have demonstrated the adverse health effects of these synthetic chemicals.

    Nutrition teamwork between vitamins and minerals Vitamins and minerals are team players, so if you want the most nutritional value from each meal, consider which foods work best together. Iron and Vitamin C are the best known nutritional “team” as they work together to increase each other’s absorption. So eating salad with your steak ensures greater absorption of both iron and Vitamin C. Calcium and Vitamin D are another great team, although combining them into one meal takes a little more forethought. Dairy products are the chief nutritional source of calcium, while our…

This is correct.  I never knew how important food was to my life until God changed my way of thinking.  After the first month of being on my journey, I discovered that food is just fuel. Just like there are different grades of gas for the automobile, there are also different grades of food.  Not all foods are the same.  It’s like the difference of having a Boston cream doughnut or a multigrain English muffin.
