The Frisbee Workout!

Posted by on Nov 30, 2009 in Fitness | 0 comments

For those who might not like to go to the gym or “workout”, here is an idea for you: Frisbee. That’s right, play Frisbee with your kids, with your dog, or with a friend. And if you can, play Frisbee when it is really windy outside – It makes it more challenging. I recently played Frisbee (the first time in years), and with the wind blowing at the lack of aim and catching coordination, I was left running after the Frisbee again…and again. I ended up running around a lot, but I didn’t mind because I was having fun and wasn’t thinking about myself working out, but just playing this game and trying to improve at it. As adults working all day every day in this little office/desk/cubicle, it can be hard to get up and do something. Try...

Thanksgiving can be good for you…

Posted by on Nov 26, 2009 in Holiday | 1 comment

Thanksgiving can either brake you or be quite beneficial for your body. It’s all about preparation. Here’s a couple of traditional foods that no Thanksgiving should be without. Turkey Great news, Turkey is not only low in fat (ok, without the skin anyways), but it is also high in B Vitamins, Potassium, Zinc, and Folic acid. So what’s so great about all of that? These wonderful nutrients are helpful in lowering blood cholesterol, protect against heart disease, and cancer. What else does Turkey do to help? Turkey also aids the immune system, nerve function and growth, and help regulate blood pressure. Potato High in Vitamin C, B-Complex, Potassium, Magnesium, and Calcium. As a result, potatoes are helpful with relieving high blood pressure and rheumatism, and helps boost the immune system. If you are trying to lose weight though, limit the...

Fruit and Nut Food Bars by LÄRABAR®

Posted by on Nov 23, 2009 in Twinkie's Favorites | 0 comments

I try to have a healthy snack available to me at all time, which pays off when I least expect it. If I am ever hungry, I don’t have to come to the point of desperation where I would have ended up eating something I would have later regretted. I like to carry a delicious LÄRABAR® with me, and I will tell you why. LÄRABAR® Beats the Competition Most food bars that are marketed as healthy are actually full of processed ingredients or lots of sugar or artificial sweeteners. The only way to know for sure if any food bar is healthy, would be to check out the label – ingredient by ingredient. I encourage you to check out the ingredients in a Fruit and Nut Food Bars by LÄRABAR®, and you will soon see the difference between these bars and other food...

Review: The Biggest Loser Season 8 Week 9

Posted by on Nov 19, 2009 in Twinkie | 0 comments

My only comments for Week 9 are reserved for what happened at the very end of the episode. When Daniel was sent home, he visits his old friend David from The Biggest Loser Season 6 Here is the conversation (not quite word for word, but pretty close) that Daniel has between his now much heavier friend David from Season 6: Daniel “So what’s going on with you, where’s your head at like weight loss wise?” David: “I have other things going on that are more important to me right now.  i’m overweight, yeah, i’m a big guy” Daniel: Not a priority? David: Not right now. I don’t feel the unhealthy. Ya know, I don’t feel it. You know, when it does, when that changes, then I’ll start losing it” (Daniel’s Comments for a little bit, then David Continues…) David: I know...

Açaí organic berry pureé by Sambazon

Posted by on Nov 16, 2009 in Twinkie's Favorites | 4 comments

When  I first saw this product in the grocery store, I can’t begin to explain to you how excited I was. First of all, this product is Açaí in organic form and the most pure form I have personally found available in stores. Açaí is becoming increasingly popular, and everywhere I turn I see Açaí somehow mixed in with any and every other filler product out there (reminds me of cranberries…geesh!). To finally find a product with just plain Açaí is amazing. Açaí is known to be a superfruit, claimed to help people on many different areas. Some of those areas would be to help lower cholesterol levels, improve heart health, improve digestion, has a high antioxident content, weight loss, etc. It has many health benefits, and again is another reason why it was quite exciting to see this...
