    It takes effort to get to the gym on a regular basis, so once you're there, make sure you're not wasting your time. Stop these seven gym mistakes now to cut minutes from your workout while still increasing its effectiveness. Socializing too much: We love our workout buddies as much as anyone else, but when it comes to gym time, make sure you and your buddy are on the same workout wavelength. That means she should be just as dedicated to an effective workout as you so you can both get in and get out (and then catch up!).

    It’s a popular punchline in movies and TV sitcoms when a woman is acting irrational — “It’s her hormones.” As it turns out, there’s more than a kernel of truth in this stereotype.

    2 Sep 2014 | 5:31 am
    Welcome to the September thread. I'd like to start it off by addressing Catlover's last post in the August thread. She asked "How do you take care of yourself emotionally?" Often we are told to take care of ourselves emotionally by going for a spa treatment. While that may be a nice and enjoyable distraction, there is no spa treatment that will truly address our emotional needs. So we must be careful not to confuse treating ourselves with meeting our emotional needs. The first step to treating our emotional needs is to identify them. Self reflection is necessary, write in a journal,…

    This seems to be the new catch-phrase in my life lately. As much as I wanted it to be the answer, the Whole 30 didn't last long for me. I tried to even ease out of it into a Paleo-style way of eating. That hasn't seemed to work, either. I think it's the restriction. When I start restricting my mind goes crazy.

  • My Week and Weigh In

    31 Aug 2014 | 8:31 am
    Last week when I decided to reintroduce chocolate, I wasn't sure how that would affect the scale. I mean, this is an elimination diet; I am looking for changes when I add each thing back... changes to tell me whether or not keeping that food in my pantry is a good or a bad idea. Adding chocolate is a tricky thing. The basic ingredient I was adding back, cocoa, is very healthy and nutritious and low in calories. It's not sugary in and of itself, but who eats cocoa plain? I can't eat artificial sweeteners, not even Stevia on AIP, so unless I was making a non-sweet mole sauce, adding chocolate…

    During my first week on the Autoimmune Protocol, I posted a summary called "What is AIP?" in which I listed all the restrictions, all the things I couldn't eat, and moaned about how much I hated it so far and how much it sucked. I printed out a long, long list to post on the fridge to remind myself of all the things that were now off limits. I was not excited about the prospect of eliminating almost every food I ate daily. But now, almost 6 weeks later, oh how my tune has changed! I *love* this way of eating and what it has done for me.However, the restrictions, while necessary, are not the…

    I had a rough couple of days this week. Just circumstances, stuff I have to deal with, emotionally draining but, you know, it's life. After two particularly harrowing days (during which I stayed 100% AIP as usual), I was really drained. There were a couple of times that I truly thought about how nice it would be to make a run for some crunchy cookies, or some other dessert. After all, I used to cope every.single.day with stress by eating junk food! It's something I've avoided lately. But boy, some days a girl just needs her chocolate! Which is doable for me, since I've reintroduced cocoa on…

About the fair... it was so much fun! All the rides, exhibits, bunnies and chickens and goats... there was a *lot* of walking around, to the point my feet did start to hurt and I had to find some sitting areas later in the day. But we were there for several hours so I guess I did okay! I ate before I went but wow did all that fair food smell good! When it was dinnertime, I scoped out all the places selling meats, looked for the ones…

    2 Sep 2014 | 4:00 am
    Since meeting my husband more than a decade ago (holy cow), his relationship with working out has been spotty. We worked out together in our early days — and a lot of our early run-ins before officially dating involved a community workout program in Lawrence, Kan. After we became an item, his workout dedication waxed and waned. He’d be gung-ho for months at a time, and then a work deadline would get in the way, and he’d go awhile without working out. He’d put on a little weight over the years, but it was gradual and up and down, and at almost 6’3″, he hid…

And I’m not one to be content laying around for seven days in a row. Two or three maybe, but longer than that and I go a bit mad. That’s why almost every summer, my hubby and I load the car up with camping gear and hit the road in search of mountains.

In its heyday it was the place to be, but it closed in 1996 after the impact of indoor heated pools and cheap overseas holidays took hold. The pool then fell into decay.

    If you’re craving an afternoon snack and you’re more likely to choose an apple and a handful of almonds over a candy bar, you’re making great progress on your journey toward a more healthy lifestyle. But just because you’re making more nutritious food choices doesn’t mean you’ll lose weight. Too much of a good thing is still too much. Losing weight ultimately comes down to a simple formula: calories eaten are less than calories burned. Whether you’re eating 2500 calories worth of junk food or 2500 calories worth of fruit, vegetables, whole…
  • Fido Can Help You Get Fit

    22 Jul 2014 | 5:00 am
    You may have heard that having a pet can improve your mood, decrease your risk for depression and lower your level of stress. Now there’s research that having a dog could help you get fit and improve your overall health. A recent study presented at this year’s annual meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine suggested that people who walked a dog on a regular basis sat less during the day, had a lower body mass index (BMI), smoked less, had fewer chronic illnesses, and were less depressed. Like having a workout buddy who motivates you to get (and keep) moving, having a…

    One of the hardest parts of cooking for one is getting the portions just right and adjusting recipes to suit yourself, rather than a group or family of four or more. There's nothing worse than making a great dish and not being able to finish it all - especially if it doesn't keep well and can't be saved. If you're dining solo tonight, try cooking up one of these healthy dinner options that yield one to two servings. Photos: Lizzie Fuhr, Nicole Perry, Jenny Sugar
  • How to Make That Long Run Feel Easier

    2 Sep 2014 | 2:01 am
    If you're training for a race, there's no reason to dread your long run. Here are a few strategies to keep in mind to make those miles fly by. Forget the time: Sometimes, it's better just to put in the mileage than struggle to keep a time goal. When you're dragging your feet to make your run, not paying attention to your pace can help you feel less pressure on a bad running day. Shorten your stride: Conserve your energy - no long, bounding strides needed. Shortening your stride will help you run the most efficiently, which allows you to save energy for your long trek.

    At least that's what this Bloomberg article surmises, and I don't disagree:"This summer the company printed the 250 most common names of U.S. teens on Coke bottles, hoping that millions of kids will want to buy drinks with their names on them. So far it seems to be working: In the last three months, sales of Coca-Cola have inched up 1 percent in North America."Moreover, do you really think that these cans and bottles won't target your preteens too?

Nope, Coca-Cola never targets kids. That's why this product my wife spotted for sale at Scholar's Choice (a store for teachers to buy gear for their classrooms) must be mislabeled.

    (CC BY-NC-SA 2.0) Nikol Lohr/Flickr I’ve worked with many patients over the years who have gone on diets with strict rules but end up gaining the weight back. These clients were afraid that without a lot of rules, they will eat uncontrollably. With so much high-calorie food available it can be easy to overeat, especially if you are highly responsive to the sight or smell of food. Although relying on rigid rules to control eating can help weight loss in the short run, people often find they can’t continue long term. Then they relapse and their eating feels more out-of-control than…

  • Why is Auto Insurance So Expensive in Ontario?

    Tim Currie
    16 Jul 2014 | 9:05 am
    There are really two main reasons why auto insurance is so expensive in Ontario as compared to the other provinces in Canada. First, Ontario has the highest density of drivers in Canada. The higher density of drivers means the more likelihood of an automobile accident or injury claim. For example, there is a greater chance of an auto accident in Toronto, than there is in Winnipeg. This possibility and greater likelihood you may have an accident in Ontario, drives higher collision premiums. Big city environments also have a higher claims ratio for theft related losses.

    Weight Loss Success - Lose Weight -> Get Healthier -> Live Longer George Diamond Show Me Weight Loss Results! Weight Loss Success Weight Loss Results When someone first starts the weight loss process, their initial thought is “show me the weight loss!” Results are what they want, and they want them fast. This was my thinking. I thought I would lose weight because I wanted to not because of what I did. I wanted to do the minimum and get the maximum results. I was taught quickly that it doesn’t work that way. If we want results, we need to earn it. We need to work at it.

    Did you have a labor-filled Labor Day? I did…until my sciatica (self-diagnosed) started up, and then I had a s-l-o-w, and largely horizontal, weekend. As I was reclining on my heating pad and watching the Cardinals reclaim first place in the National League Central (yay!), the announcers mentioned a Q&A with…well, somebody I’ve forgotten. But it did prompt me to create a new Q & A post here. I just love learning more about y’all! So here we go: To tie in with Labor Day, I’m wondering what was your favorite job ever?

My schedule is still all over the place, but I’m feeling very much on point with my nutrition and exercise. That alone helps combat stress and fatigue. I’m hoping it will also help with getting the proper amount of sleep. One of the things I’ve done to feel more “in control” is to return to full meal logging in sparkpeople.

In this particular crazy summer, my schedule and meals have been so scattered that I’ve hardly even taken the time to enjoy the season’s bounty.

Fortunately, I had time to make a decent grocery run last weekend and picked up some fresh produce, including the subject of today’s post: fresh green beans!

But life has a tendency to get in the way of that, and that’s the subject of this month’s AIM post: how our maintenance plans have changed over time. When I began losing weight, I focused on building a plan that would carry me through maintenance. Not TO maintenance, but THROUGH maintenance. Previous…

Wow, as ubiquitous as salt is, why is there so much disagreement over salt in our daily lives?Without salt, we will die. That establishes something of a "lower bound" on how much salt to eat.

At least you got out there. It’s better than skipping it altogether. You truly #wycwyc‘ed it! On another note, great job on keeping up the journal. Your food choices have been awesome! These made the perfect sweet bite after dinner and you already finished all the produce from this weeks grocery trip! Oh! And you made that sweet potato and sausage casserole to last the…
  • Stop Watching the Years Go By

    27 Aug 2014 | 10:03 am
    I just shipped “The Toddler” off to 4th grade. Unbelievable. I know many of you reading have kids, some even already adults with their own children, and I can now, sort of, imagine what it must feel like to look at your grown children. I think about my mom and how it must be almost incomprehensible to not only see me as a 38-year-old woman getting ready to celebrate her 20th high school reunion but to spend time with her grandsons? Two human beings she is partially responsible for but a generation removed. Everyone has this fleeting feeling of time passing when milestones like the…
  • A Taco Tuesday Taco Salad and My New Journal

    26 Aug 2014 | 6:18 pm
    Ever since the Lego Movie our family has pretty much eaten tacos on Tuesday. It’s always been one of my favorite dinners anyway so I’m glad to have a reason to serve them weekly. Especially because I can make tacos super healthy and no one seems to notice — have you seen my Kale, Turkey and Black Bean Taco Filling? It’s a family favorite. I also now have them hooked on chicken tacos with avocados, which is great because I can make lots of extra and eat the chicken throughout the week. Tonight I skipped the traditional tacos and made myself a HUGE taco salad. There was…

A few things have been falling into place for me lately and it’s got me thinking about how big a role patience takes when we are trying to achieve pretty much any goal we set for ourselves. My morning started off at the gym, as it normally does, and we had a workout that included jump ropes, Double unders to be specific. Now, I’m not going to get all crossfitty on you, I promise, but this thing has been the bane of my existence since starting CrossFit…

During #TransparentTuesday, we remove the rosy filters of social media and share real life.  This noggin of mine has been churning of late. Not to say that it doesn’t always churn, it just does on different topics. The topic du jour? Judgement. We make so many snap judgements daily. An interesting book on the subject is Malcom Gladwell’s “Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking” The key to good decision making is not knowledge.

Her death was one of the triggering life events that got me to my highest weight and intensified my binge eating disorder, but it is also one of the biggest reasons I continue to fight for my health. She, with Parkinson’s Disease, didn’t have the choice to let her body deteriorate. I do. I choose life, and am striving to live a life full of experiences she wasn’t able to.

    Today’s success story is in a little different format.  I met Rebecca when I walked into Weight Watchers in January of 2009.  She was there EVERY week, eating popcorn out of her Ziplock bag sitting on the second row.  My dad and I nicknamed her, “Popcorn Girl!” I didn’t really ever sit down and chat with her during several years of weight loss but I wish I had – we were both battling infertility.  She changed meeting days and we lost touch.  Then, she started with Jacynta’s Sparkle Group and even though we never really chatted, it was like an old…

Do we encourage each other enough or is it always what we are doing wrong-wrong-wrong? Are we kind enough to ourselves or do we constantly beat ourselves up over every-little-thing we do wrong? Are we too critical? Are we slow to forgive but fast to blame? What is our attitude like?

No more hiding behind bigger clothes. No more pretending it doesn’t bother me, that is is “just a number on the scale!” No more ignoring… I am going to weigh in tomorrow. No more excuses. No more stress eating. No more eating “because it is there.” It is time to get a reality check and face the music.  Time to get back on the weight loss wagon.

The problem – at least in my opinion – with advice like this, is that it focuses too much on what we shouldn’t be doing. It restricts us.
