    Hi emoticon ,
    How are you today? Are you getting out and about? Remember to balance out those carbs and proteins, so you will have enough energy to last through out the day.

    Also, I don't want you to rely on the scale so much. Remember just because the numbers may not be moving, it doesn't necessarily mean you are not getting fit. Perhaps you are losing inches around your arms, thighs even in your hips and tummy.

    It is important to take these measurements as well. I know when I was toning up. This is where I noticed the most difference at first. Because muscle weighs more than fat. But it looks so much better on us, because it's lean and firmer than fat.

    So keep that chin up. Follow your plan and just look over the points I post, we all can use a review once in awhile. Keep up your journal so you can refer back to it, it is one of your most valuable tools.

    Be Blessed and I'll check back in with you.

    Love always your sister in Christ Jesus

    We often forget to take care of ourselves, when we are taking care of a loved one that is ill or preparing for surgery.

    Take time out for yourself. Nurture yourself by exercising, keeping involved in activities that bring you pleasure, getting respite and taking a trip. Keep up your connections to friends. Such actions are not self-indulgent, they are your prescription for good health and resiliency like food, water, and air.

    Most of all do not feel guilty. You are not doing anything wrong. After all it is important to take care of you, so you do not fall Ill yourself. emoticon

    Just stopping by to check in with you Spark Friend!

    As important as it is to get your daily 6-8 glasses of water daily, I also wanted to remind you that it is equally important to take a multi-vitamin and mineral supplement as well.

    This will insure that you are getting the proper amount of nutrients daily that your body will need while losing weight.

    Sleep is another important issue that some of us ignore when we are trying to lose weight and get healthy. We fail to get enough shut eye we are actually hurting our attempt to lose weight. It is very important to make sure that you are getting enough sleep, at least 7-8 hours a night to ensure weight loss. When we don't get enough sleep we often feel sluggish, slow and our metabolism slows down.

    This can and often does cause us to start to abuse caffeine drinks, like high energy drinks and large amounts of coffee. Drinking a limited amount of coffee, can actually be beneficial for some according to several areas of studies. Where as the high energy drinks have often been abused and have a reverse effect and do the body damage.

    All in all it is best to visit your doctor regularly and see where your body stands on vitamins, sleep and the effects of caffeine.

    Remember to stay well, keep tracking and get the heart elevated with some form of cardio a couple of times a week.

    Also keep the 3 F's in mind this weekend: Fitness, Faith, Follow Your Plan....

    Hey how's it going? Just giving a pep talk today. Sometimes we all have a day that just doesn't seem to be going right. If that seems to be happening to you. Listen up...okay. I love you and I am here.

    Try to track what you eat and that means everything. Even the stuff we are not supposed to eat. This helps us to be honest with ourselves, once we see it in writing.

    You can do this, you are not the only that slips. We ALL do it. We just have to get right back on track with the very next meal or snack. We can not allow our thinking to derail the whole day and start eating uncontrollably. When we do this, we let our emotions take over and think "oh, well I might as well just give up". This is not true.

    Don't give in to this type of thinking. Instead try "Okay, I slipped. But, I am getting back on track right now." Try by sipping on a glass of water with a twist of lemon and writing in your food journal and making a game plan for the rest of the day. But do not throw out the rest of the day or week over one slip up.

    If you still have the problem food in the house, throw it out. Trust me, no one is going to miss it. Soak it in water, it is better to waste it, than to have it around your waist. Right?

    Let's do this! You know We can! emoticon
