Just in Time for Summer

Just in Time For Summer

Now is the time to clean up the eating to prepare for summer months. Sadly we have no control over how the economy has been handled, what epidemics are traveling through our air or food system. We can not even control when the sun rises. Contrary to what our children and husbands expect us to be able to control. The one thing we have total control over is input output with our own bodies.

That is where it becomes very important that we make the right choices what we do as input and what we do as output.

You need to have some type of physical relief be it walking, running, weight lifting or group classes. You already know about Aradia fitness and how much fun working out can be with a bunch of other women now lets work on the other aspect of this equation.

It takes a deficit of 3500 calories to loose just one pound of fat. With that in mind working out and then saying well I can have that one little muffin today I ran for 30 minutes will only be a down ward battle. For example the average women running for one hour at 135 pounds would burn 300 or so calories a muffin can be from 240 to 400 calories depending on the type of muffin you choose. That to me seems to be working against any healthy goals. Don’t get me wrong I believe very strongly in letting yourself have cheat meal once a week. But that does not mean pig out meal that is still normal portions and keep in mind that you still have to account for it the next day.

Let’s try for one week to eat as clean as you can. It really actually tastes good you will be surprised. I have given a few examples in the last few months of menu planning so that should be some assistance while trying this. Here are the rules.

Fruit – fresh or flash frozen

Vegetable – Fresh or Flash frozen

Bread – Whole-wheat or equivalent

Dairy products –no processed

Meat – Must have legs – wings – or fins if it could not fly swim or run and is processed it is not in the list.

I want you to use that rule to make a week menu and try it. You will be surprised how much better you feel and fresher your food tastes. We care about you and will and want to help.

Be Strong

Posted by

BE STRONG has always been my mantra for as long as I can remember.  I am sure I am not alone. What does being strong actually mean?? When I was younger I did not have much understanding of “being strong” and I would mostly shut down emotionally and take care of “business” without realizing the toll… Read more »
