Juicing…Yum!

I have recently started juicing. I am loving it so far! I have done a lot of reading about how healthy juicing in for a few months now, but now I have started it myself.

My favorite juice is carrot/apple. I do about 10 carrots and 2 apples…this makes enough juice for me and my husband. It taste great and gives me a lot of energy. I usually have a glass mid morning and late afternoon when I am feeling a little tired and need a good pick me up.

Carrots are a good source of Calcium and Iron, and a very good source of Vitamin A and Vitamin C.

I like juicing because its as easy and fast way to get the nutrients from fruits and vegetables. I love fruits and vegetables to begin with, but think juicing would be great for people who do not like the taste of different fruits and vegetables because you can hide the flavors you may not like as much with other flavors you enjoy and you can still get the nutrients from all the items.

Moms…Remember To Take Care Of Yourselfs

One of my favorite TV shows to watch is TLC’s What Not To Wear! As I watching the show the other night it really hit me how much taking care of your outer appearance can you help you feel better about everything in your life. I watch the show all the time, but this episode really made it hit home how much it can affect you. The lady on the show had completely changed her life for the better…stopped drinking, started spending more time with her family, lost like 40lbs, and was training for a marathon, but she still looked and seemed sad. After the makeover she just looked and felt so much happier.

That night I started thinking about what I do in the days that I feel the best.On the days where I feel really energized and happy I take time to get myself ready for the days…

I workout, shower, get dressed in clothes that I feel good about, put on some makeup, and actually do something with my hair other then a ponytail. Taking the extra time in the morning to do these things makes the rest of my day feel better even if I am just staying at home playing with my little guy. I know from watching my Mom and from being a new Mom myself that you can get caught up in just taking care of everyone else, but in order to do that better we need to take care of ourselves as well.

What I try to do everyday to feel good:

  • Workout
  • Put on Makeup
  • Eat well
  • Take my vitamins
  • Smile!

Happy New Year!

I know I am a little late on this but life has been very crazy!

As many of you out there my plans for the new year include health and fitness. My goal is to finish loosing the weight I put on having my baby boy (almost there!), tone up, transform our diet to a 75% raw diet, and run a half marathon by July!

For the fitness/weight loss:

Spend 1 hour 5 days a week at the gym. My gym workout includes 20-30 mins of cardio and then 30 mins of free weights. I usually rotate weights from upper body, abs, and lower body. To get more time running to prepare for running a half marathon I am going to begin to rotate a day in where I do cardio for the entire hour. Since I get bored easily I try to rotate the way I do my cardio….treadmill, track, elliptical machine, Arc trainer. Then I use free weights and different exercise balls for my strength training. I also enjoy throwing a day of yoga into my workout.

For our diet:

I am slowing trying to convert most of our diet to raw fruits and veggies. I am learning different ways to do this. It takes a little getting used to. I have spent my whole life thinking that things need to be cooked to be the main part of the meal. I am starting by making a smoothie for breakfast, fruit or veggie snack, salad for lunch, carrot juice snack, and a dinner consisting of at least half raw veggies.

Other 2011 goals:

  • Get better at keeping in touch with friends that are not local.
  • Get my personal trainer certificate
  • Take one class towards becoming a registered dietitian
  • Spend more time working on this blog!
  • Build my Shaklee business

Here is to a great 2011 where life may take us! Good luck to everyone with there New Years resolutions/goals.
