8 Tips for Healthy Eating

Infographic: 8 tips for healthy eating

Hello Luv-lies,

Ran across this infographic  while trolling the ‘net.  Trying to make some sense of my eating plan (… even though I make certain that I keep up with my ‘healthy checks’ on WW Tracker, I periodically need other sources to make certain that I’m getting all of the nutrition that I need (… this growing girl needs all the info she can get to help with to get that girlish figure  *wink wink*).

I found this wealth of information all bundled in one nice little infographic.  *Not real sure why the ‘Yeast Infection Organization is sponsoring this…. but….*

Although I like the information shared, there are few things that would change/amend if I designed this.

Like the following:

I prefer brown rice and bread over the white

don’t particularly like referring to Carbohydrates as starches (the word ‘starch’ just has a bad wrap)

Those two are it…. What do you think?

This is Starting to Feel like My #1

Good early Morning, Luv-lies

Running-Water-Pencil

Looking forward to my Thursday run … I’ve finally settled into what I call  ‘The Run’

For me, ‘The Run’ is that place in my head where I am relaxed in my run.

A place where I focus on how my

body ‘feels’ during the run.

Usually  during my run, my focus has been on finishing the run.

My thoughts often were, “when is this going to be over?”, “one more mile…. just one more mile…”

Now,

I’ve settled into the music that I use to inspire my run.

I smile with every step that pounds the pavement.

I feel the strength developing in my whole body but particularly in my legs

I’m finally embracing this whole running thing and settling in to mindfulness about it….

it’s fast becoming one of my ‘LUV IT’ workouts!!!

Hello Luv-lies !

And Happy Mother’s Day to you all!

Betty Boop's Mother's Day Wishes

I spent this Mother’s Day like so many of you Luv-lies… reminiscing about the past and sharing today & tomorrow’s thoughts with that very special person in my life….my Mom. After arriving in town {I went back home to the town where all of my fondest childhood memories began}, grabbing a small {yes….nutritious meal. Even Mother’s Day is not a reason to slack :-P} my Mother & I made our way home to get comfortable and catch up {I mean reallllly catch up} on all the news and adventures of not just ours lives, but, that of family, friends. We talked all evening and way into the night.

Despite my late night/early morning talkfest, I awoke early Saturday morning refreshed. Not so much from having ample sleep, but from the delight of being able to talk endlessly with this extraordinarily special woman in my life – My Mom. As always when I go home to spend time with my Mother, my activity schedule is, for the most part, unplanned – with one exception….. I always, always, always start my day with some activity of the cardio type!

I miss these guys!!!

I miss these guys!!!

I decided to go back to the place where, as an adult, my enthusiasm for fitness began…. I surprised my instructor and former fitness-mates {YES! Most of these ladies were still there and looking mah-vah-lous!}.  t has been years since I’ve stepped into a Jazzercise class! After a brief interruption in the class – where loads of hugs, kisses, and “how the heck have you beens” were exchanged, I eased nicely into the routines as if I’d never left.

The time after the class was spent catching up on the adventures of our children, grandchildren, families and the who/what/when of our individual lives.

Getting my cardio in for the day was definitely a secondary gain. Reuniting with woman who have been the thread in the fabric of my life was TRULY AMAZING!!

Hey my Luv-lies, what have you done for yourself that has felt utterly amazing?
….. do share
