This week we are going to focus on Healthy Fats!  

Fats from animal and vegetables are so vital to our health. They are a “concentrated source of energy.” (Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon). Using fats as an energy source is also understood in Trim Healthy Mama‘s satisfying or S meals. read more

We are going to focus on Cutting out the Sugar! 

This is not a new idea. Lots of popular diets have come to the conclusion that our sugar is out of balance in our Modern diet and this is the cause of our expanding waistbands.

 

Management of your Sugar and Carbohydrates is crucial for weight loss and your general health.

 

We know sugar is so important to get under control.

 

A low glycemic diet in general is healthier than a diet focused on lots of carbs. When our system gets overloaded with too many sugar and carbs, our cells start storing extra carbs as fat in our cells.

 

Our cells love to store carbs, so they are very eager and ready when we over eat our carbs. If we eat a moderate or low carb diet, then we can burn those carbs before they get the chance to be stored as extra fat. read more

Trim Healthy Mama Review

Trim Healthy Mama Review

Trim Healthy Mama is the latest “diet” book craze. It seems like every where I turned there was something about Trim Healthy Mama. I was curious at first, and skeptical.

I had to find out for myself what all the fuss was about! 

What was so new and different about this plan? 

I heard about Trim Healthy Mama first from my sister. She and her family were starting to implement the plan… and seeing results.

Then, I joined the free Facebook group to learn as much as I could before buying the book. I was simply AMAZED at the transformations I saw in the Trim Healthy Mama Facebook group. I could not get enough of the life changing stories from these women (and some men too!). Joining the Facebook group is a must for starting out. There are amazing moderators to help with answers to any questions and also getting advice and encouragement. I would highly recommend joining the group to help you with your Trim Healthy Lifestyle.  read more

New You New Years!!!

newyou

New Years is next week! I know you are already thinking about what you are wanting for 2014. Some of you make the same resolutions every year and by February they are already a thing of the past.

This year will be different. This year you will make a change and stick to it!

How? You may ask. Because We are all going to be a part of New You New Years!!!

So lets talk about what New You New Years is going to look like. Every week, a new challenge will be presented to focus on the whole week. It may be to eat one vegetable at lunch and dinner. Or maybe it could be focusing on eliminating white sugar for the week. Maybe we could even focus on adding a 20 minute walk in or another exercise each day for a week.  read more

It’s all in how you start

coffee mornings day

I was thinking… The start of your morning sets the tone for the rest of your day.

If you start your day eating something healthy, then you are more likely to continue through lunch and dinner.

I thought I would share my start of this Monday morning. (Not perfect by all means)

I nurse the littlest one at 1:30 am, 4:00 am, and 6:30 am.

The big kid woke up at 7:30 am, knocking on her door – this is actually pretty early for her!

I change the littlest one’s diaper and clothes (because her cloth diaper leaked a little – should have put on a night time diaper before bed… Doh!) read more

Happy New Years!

It’s the start of a new year. The time to reflect on what has happened the last 365 days for better or for worse.

Happy new year

I am trying to slowly come out of the morning sickness fog and focus on growing a little person now.

So for that one goal this year: To have a healthy pregnancy and baby… I have a few sub goals that I will try to follow.

1) Take my Cod liver oil everyday.

41cc7jSpB9L._SL500_AA300_Pregnant women are supposed to have 1.5 teaspoons a day. I have been trying to down the chocolate gel that Aidalyn loves so much, but sadly it has come up far to many times. I just ordered capsules from Green Pastures that are butter blend/cod liver oil. That should help with Vitamins A and D. read more
