A Year From Now…

Posted by on Jan 1, 2014 in Holiday, Skinny Tips & Quotes | 0 comments

New Years day is a great time to reflect on the previous year – the good and the bad. As I was looking back on what I have accomplished this last year, I am quite happy with the results even thought I didn’t accomplish everything I was striving for. I am happy because I am further ahead now than last year when I started. If I was exactly where I was last year today, I think I would feel a huge sense of regret and “I should haves”. I think if you just keep moving forward every year- even if you haven’t yet reached your ultimate goal – you should feel happy and proud that you are closer to your goal. Progress is progress, no matter how small. What have you accomplished this last year that you are proud...

Why Weight Loss Programs Fail

Posted by on Jan 7, 2013 in Weight Loss | 0 comments

Everyone’s motto at the beginning of the year seems to be “this is the year I finally ____”. Sadly, most people never reach their goals, whether their goals focus on eating healthier, exercising more, weight loss, or just working on overall health. P90X • Atkins • Boxing • CrossFit • Weight Watchers• Running • Vegan None of these exercise programs or “diets” will work out for most people. Why is that? More often than not, there is only ONE thing that is stopping them from seeing success. One thing. Consistency.  You can hire the best personal trainers and nutritionists in the world. You can be given the best exercise regime and meal plan that is perfectly designed just for you based on your specific goals. None of it will work out for you unless you actually use it. None of it will work unless you are consistent with...

Twinkie’s Challenge: Accomplish your New Year’s Resolutions

Posted by on Jan 3, 2011 in Health, Holiday, Twinkie's Challenge | 0 comments

On average, New Year’s Resolutions just don’t seem to last past February. This is the year to finally change all of that. This is the year to put the odds in your favor and finally accomplish your goals. Focus on a select few List all of the goals you would like to accomplish this year. Now just pick two or three goals that are the most important to you. If you choose too many goals to accomplish, you can get too overwhelmed which can hurt your chances of getting anything done. Be realistic with your goals. If you are 5′ 11″, you probably shouldn’t have your goal to be a “size 00”.  Not only would an impossible goal be discouraging to anyone, this type of a goal would be extremely unhealthy for you. Your goals should better your life rather...

Twinkie’s Challenge: No Sugar or Artifical Sweeteners!

Posted by on Oct 4, 2010 in Nutrition, Twinkie's Challenge, Weight Loss | 5 comments

This quarter, I challenge you to avoid processed Sugar and Artificial Sweeteners! (You can still have natural sugars found in Fruit, Vegetables, Agave Nectar, Raw Honey, etc). So why would I give you (and myself!) this Challenge? The Harmful Effects of Sugar Processed Sugar and Artificial Sweeteners are really bad for you. But how bad can it be? •Raises insulin levels in the body, which promotes the storage of fats. By storing excess fats, it causes your body to gain weight, and Sugar has been linked to causing Obesity. •Depresses the Immune System. If your body is trying to fight an illness, Sugar and Artificial Sweeteners are only going to make things worse for you by preventing your body to fight back whatever illness it is trying to get rid of. If you want to lower your risk of...

Lose Weight with your iPhone!

Posted by on Mar 29, 2010 in Twinkie's Favorites, Weight Loss | 1 comment

I recently got an iPhone for my Birthday (Yes, I am spoiled), and I soon discovered it’s many wonderful iPhone applications that are helpful with Health and Weight loss. The reasons why I love the “Lose it!” App for the iPhone 1) You can easily set up your weight loss goals. You enter in your current weight, your goal weight, and set up a time line on when you can realistically expect to achieve your goal weight. You can do this by setting up a  realistic plan of losing anywhere from “maintain current weight” to “lose 2 lbs per week”. Once you decide on what you want to commit to, it will give you a date of when you will be at your goal weight. The more weight you lose each week, the sooner you will be at your goal...
