Overweight Americans and childhood obesity have become a huge problem in recent years. With this awareness, many people are looking for ways on how to lose weight. A few important things to remember:
Writing down what you eat is one basic principle to weight loss and maintaining a diet. A second principle to healthy weight loss is to read the food labels. Make sure your grocery items include a lot of fiber and little fat, in other words stock up on lots of vegetables, fruits, peas,… Continue

Starting this year one of my resolutions is to bebsnd stay in shape. Now I know I could say I'll work out everyday but with caring care of LJ that just isn't going to happen. If it does some weeks great but if not oh well but my resolution is that it has to be at least 3 times a week.
So i was looking at different ways to get my exercise in either in the morning, nap time or after little msn is in bed. So my friend told me about tone it up. One of course the girls on the page or… Continue

There was a time when I felt like my life was turned upside down. I had so many obstacles coming in my direction at one time: divorce, single parent to a toddler, increased bills and less money, bankrupt business, loss of a close friendship... Wow, that takes energy just thinking about it and when all of this came crashing at me at once, I completely lost balance and damn near my sanity.
These life experiences have taught me that we all have to go through obstacles in life, but the effects… Continue

So I recently discovered Meizitang Botanical
Slimming. It's a simple slimming diet, very popular in Texas and Mexico.
I felt like trying it out. So I was price hunting for 2 WHOLE days,
until I found it at the lowest price around $11-12 at slimeast.com
the price reduces depending how much boxes you buy (ex. if you buy 10
boxes, it's 7.80 each, and so on.) They sell internationally, so… Continue

A few weeks ago I confessed that I was "downward dogging it". Months had passed since I last attended yoga class and my body, mind and spirit were beginning to feel the ill effects.

I started practicing yoga about three years ago when I was pregnant with my little girl. It was love at first breath. What other exercise allows for a ten minute rest time (Savasana)? To be forced to relax for ten minutes is the best thing ever!
Unfortunately, I have fallen off the yoga-love wagon.

Downward Dogging It

The most important thing is not to allow negative comments to get in our way. If someone tells us we can’t do it or makes us feel bad, we often feel defeated. We need to empower ourselves. Nobody else can do it. Think about the life you want to lead once you reach your goal. One good way to achieve this is to write down your reasons behind your desire to lose weight. Stick the list on the wall so that you can see it every day. When a negative thought pops up, replace it with a positive one. For… Continue

have been interested in giving Kettlebells a try for a while now, but
have been hesitant after hearing stories of injuries and inexperienced
instructors. So, I was excited to find Kettlebell expert Lauren Brooks
on Facebook, and even more excited to find out that she had her own
DVD. I asked if I could review it and she kindly sent me a copy along
with an extra for a giveaway.
This DVD is FUN and super effective. It contains instructions,… Continue

Many people believe therapy is about resolving a crisis or healing a traumatic past and while these are worthy goals indeed, good therapy is also like good feng shui, because it is about exploring and making our noble intentions conscious and meaningful.
Balancing Yin and Yang energies in our romantic relationships is imperative. Think about balance within the context of our feeling afraid that the relationship with our significant lover will end because our mate will… Continue

I am a creative person. I have a flair for decorating, I can plan and cook a gourmet meal and I am wicked with the hot glue gun, so when presented with a problem, I
can pull out all the stops and come up with an ingenious solution.

I remember when I found out I was pregnant with baby #3. Yahoo! Wonderful. So excited.
Oh, the commitments to myself. ‘Boy, this time I’m going to stay on top of things. I’m going to do plenty of exercise. Eat healthy. Lots of rest.’ You see, pregnancy #2 was full of rich, dairy cravings, Continue

Whether you are addicted to alcohol, street drugs, prescription drugs, gambling, food, or nicotine, the neurological pattern that develops is the same. The reward center in your brain is underactive, and it takes more in life to tell that part of your brain that you're having a good time. Nothing but the addiction seems to satisfy that reward center, and the brain is tricked into thinking that the addiction is necessary for survival.
Quick bursts of exercise at 70-80% of one's… Continue

New research is showing us fascinating information about the brain. We are now learning that we can form new brain cells at nearly any age with physical exercise, and that exercising before class can significantly boost learning capacity by spawning new brain cells. Learning new information immediately following aerobic exercise fills the new cells with information.
The new neural pathways formed during exercise are like new railroad tracks in our brains. If we don't use them, we… Continue
