......(by Ruby Alexandra Beloz)

Lord as I go out to do battle
To defend my countries Freedom

I march behind my Flag of
Red, White and Blue
I ask to you to help me and guide me

Lord where is fear replace it with courage
Where there is weakness give me strength

    emoticon My Wonderful Spark Friend !!
    Remember just because it is a Holiday Weekend doesn't mean you can't have a good time and stay on track... just watch be sure to weight the hamburger meat out to 3-4 ounces, layer it with plenty of veggies like lettuce, cucumbers, onions, radishes or your favorites!! Try adding some grilled vegetables to the list... Family BBQ's can be the greatest way to get your family on board to trying fresh grilled vegetables and "Yes" even grilled "Fruits"... Try gilled fruit and veggie kabobs... along with your favorite salsa. Even visit Chef Meg for some of her favorite recipes for grilling!!

    emoticon "Memorial Day Weekend Blessings!!" emoticon
    Remember to Plan for those desserts to, no more than 1/8th of a slice if you put it on your tracker!! You should have plenty of room for it!! Let's be Happy with our choices, not sorry about it later! emoticon

    emoticon Don’t completely eliminate foods that you actually LOVE.

    Chances are that if you completely cut out foods you absolutely love, you’ll spring back into old eating habits pretty quickly. Unless your doctor informs you of a health condition that requires food elimination, or unless you choose to eliminate a food for personal reasons, let go of the idea of “bad” foods and learn to enjoy them in moderation instead. Pasta? Rice? A piece of chocolate cake? Enjoying these once in a while won’t derail all of your hard work and they aren’t “unhealthy” in proper portions. It is all about portion control...

    Things do get a bit tricky with this “don’t” though. You have to figure out the best method of non-elimination for you. For example, if you keep your favorite food in the house and know you aren’t able to control how much you eat, then don’t keep it in the house. Instead, enjoy it only when you go out.

    Do you need to wait to feel hungry before eating? Worst Diet Advice: 'Only Eat When Hungry'

    Why you shouldn’t let hunger drive your dietary decisions . Don't believe it? What happens when you go to the supermarket hungry? Well you shop differently, of course, coming home with items you'd have never purchased on a full stomach. And what happens when you sit down to a meal hungry? Well you're still shopping of course, only this time you're shopping from your plate, your fridge, your cupboards, your freezer, or worst of all, from a menu. emoticon

    My Dr. is recommending that I eat several smaller meals throughout the day now that I have been diagnosed as having "Hypoglycemia". Instead of eating 3 regular meals and 2 snacks, I would be eating 6 smaller meals through out the day. By eating at regular intervals, my blood sugar levels (and therefore my energy levels) would remain stable. So, instead of having that mid-afternoon crash, I would be full of energy through dinnertime! By eating every few hours (especially if when we chew on fruits and veggies) can also help add extra the nutrition that might be missing from other meals. By cutting out refined sugar, I also cut a lot of fruits that were high in sugar as well. I have recently learned that my body needs this natural sugar. Therefore I have started re-introducing them back into my meal plans as needed. This is helping to restart my metabolism. How many of you know what "Hypoglycemia" is? Could you be suffering from this condition and not know it? I was.

    Hypoglycemia : deficiency of glucose ( sugar ) in the bloodstream. Low Blood Sugar.

    If you are like me and have had or raised children. Then you know that our kids look to us to set examples for them to follow.

    It isn't always easy to do. Especially when it comes to what we eat and fitting in exercise. Most of us lead busy lives and sometimes it isn't easy to fit in regular exercise, but unless you make it a priority, you are risking your child becoming a couch potato and junk food junkie.

    So where do we start. We start by taking them shopping with us and teaching them to pick out healthy whole grains, fruit, vegetables and lean meats, poultry or fish.

    I have always tried to make my sons part of the process even in the kitchen. When it comes to handling the food that is just as important as knowing how to pick it out if we want it to remain healthy enough to eat. That is why wash, rinse and sanitize is such an important fact to remember when it comes to food prep and handling.

    After the shopping is done and everything is put away. Dinner is over with, we have the choice of sitting in front of the tv or going to our rooms and playing video games. Not in my house. We would go for a walk, bike ride or often a hike across the canal in the woods around Peanut Lake. The boys to this day are still very active and even belong to gyms. I am so proud that they take an active roll in their relationships as adults in meal planning and exercise.

    Remember that also snack planning is just as important. Not just for the children, but for those of us that want to eat healthy. We can prepare our snacks ahead of time and have them ready to go in a snack bag. This makes snacking healthier and convenient.

    So how about you, are there any suggestions that you can think of ?
