National Nutrition Month!!

March is National Nutrition Month.  Every year I love to see what theme the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics choose.  This year the theme is “Go Further with Food.” I love this years theme.  It reminds us to go back to the basics and bring healthy food back into our life.  Get rid of the processed food and go further with fresh and non processed food.  Our bodies are not meant to take in processed food.  Use sparingly if you do use processed food.  With a good mindset about food and planning out healthy meals for us and our families I believe we will be able to Go FURTHER in life with more energy  Start your day out with a healthy breakfast and make sure you get in a good healthy lunch. Make a dinner the center point to re connect with your family.  Using healthy food so everyone stays healthy and feels the energy that good food can provide.

I have been so much better this year with planning out meals and knowing what is in my re-fridge so food does not waste.  Incorporate vegetables as a big part of your diet. It’s such a great way to live.  I am not so big on fruit as I am on veggies due to my diabetes.  Since I do not take medication and I control my numbers by what I eat my fruit intake is low so my numbers stay low but if you don’t have diabetes you should make fruit and veggies a good part of your diet.  I love apples and they are in the low index group of fruit so you will see me eating apples and berries.

Let’s see how far we can go by changing up what we eat and paying better attention to adding healthier foods into our diet.

spring cleaning burns calories!!

Spring is right around the corner!!

It’s that time of year where you get the itch to put some order into your home. Doctors believe that even with short bouts of mild exercise can help improve your fitness level. So yes chores around your house and gardening can burn calories along with stretching and toning your muscles.

All though its not likely to give you a perfect swimsuit body doing some sort of moderate activity for 30 minutes or more ever day can bring some real health benefits. Now if you add the 30 min you spend doing exercising like walking or biking to your 30 minutes of doing chores you are getting a full hour of exercise. If your trying to lose weight it is recommended that you get 60 minutes a day of exercise. Yeah!!

Activity: with Calories Burned every 30 min

My Number 1 favorite thing about cleaning is vacuuming!! It burns: 130
Washing windows: 100
Washing dishes: 75
Washing the car: 155
Moping the floor: 155
Dusting: 85
Gardening: 184
Doing the laundry: 75
Mowing the lawn: 152
Weeding the yard: 155

These are just to name a few, So hop to it! Cleaning counts!

Get Checked!!

If you think you may have type 2 make a Dr appt and GET CHECKED!!  I had 5 out of these 7 symptoms and I was still stubborn going in.  It took 3 extra months of feeling horrible but I really did think I was ill because of my sick new born not because I had diabetes. Now I know different and I want everyone to be tested if they have any of these symptoms.  The sooner you know the sooner you can get treatment and the sooner you will start feeling better.

 

 

I love my new water bottle!!!

Nothing motivates us more to visit the gym than those Olympians wearing gold medals around their necks. To be as successful as an Olympian you need to put in the work and stay hydrated! Contigo’s AUTOSEAL Chill water bottle is a necessity when it comes to staying hydrated at the gym. This 24-ounce insulated bottle can keep liquids cold for up to 28 hours! That’s enough time to hit the gym and run home to watch the highly anticipated Speed Skating or Alpine Skiing events.

I love my Contigo Autoseal Chill water bottle!!  Thank you Contigo for sending them my way.  My son thinks its pretty dang cool as well.  We both use it for the gym, work and all other activities.  I love it because the challenge I am doing calls for drinking 1 gallon of water a day until I got my water bottle.  It really helps me get my water in…  Another big plus is how cold my water stays!!  Such a awesome feature!!
