Ways to Keep Your Snacks Guilt Free This Year !!! January 01 2014

 

                                                                                                                                             

 

Everyone knows that snacking can undo an otherwise healthy diet. Most people do not stick with just three meals a day, so snacking is a regular part of life. This is actually a good thing since eating every few hours helps to stabilize your blood sugar level so you do not get insulin spikes that can have adverse effects on your overall health. But what constitutes a snack? Better yet—what constitutes a healthy snack? Here are some easy ways to keep your snacks guilt free:

  1. Plan your snacks. The biggest problem with snacks is that you are already at the hunger or starving point by the time you decide to have a snack. When this happens, you will reach for just about anything in sight in order to quickly satisfy those hard-to-ignore hunger pangs. But if you already have some healthy options on hand like fruit, cut up vegetables, nuts or a hardboiled egg, what you will grab are healthy, nutritious snacks that will leave you satisfied until your next meal.
  2. Keep the bad stuff away. Even if you have all the healthy stuff right in front of you, you will probably still be very tempted to go for the bad stuff. Eliminating it from your life (and your pantry) will mean the only option you have for a snack is a healthy one.

How to Exercise When You Have Only So Much Time October 13 2013

                                                 

 

Everyone knows they need to exercise, but who has the time? You go to work, work your eight hours, ten hours, twelve hours, you know, go home toss the scrubs and scrub hats off… and then off running your kids here and there for their various activities. Perhaps after work you rush into the kitchen for that evening meal or spritz off to that scheduled volunteer project, but the point is, by the time you have time, who feels like exercising, right.

If you want to incorporate exercise time into your busy life, there are some ways to do that by using time during your day, and you will feel so…much better as the result!

 

Why not try rising perhaps about 20 minutes earlier than usual. A walk in the morning will help you wake up and feel rejuvenated for the day. If you are not a morning person, then maybe you can use your break time for a stroll. Using your lunchtime as a mini workout is a good way to get through the midday slump that many of us experience after eating. Sneak in exercise through passing up modern day conveniences. Example, try to take the stairs rather than the elevator on occasion. At first, this will be a challenging feat, especially if you go from floor to floor a lot. In time, though, your body will get used to it and you will be bounding the flight of stairs effortlessly.  

 

Guilty of trying to find the closest spot in the parking lot to the front door, if you make a point of choosing a spot further away,......Read More
