This is a very new board


As this is a very new board, I am open to other topics you girls would like to see addressed.

I did not want this to be like many other boards where I find myself overwhelmed with topics.

I truly do appreciate your participation!

Re: This is a very new board


Thank you so much for writing and asking these questions. I know that many women have this very same problem.

To avoid being tired and sluggish, you need to be consistent with an exercise program and then you too will feel so many benefits. You may have heard people say that exercise give you energy. It's true, you just need to be consistent with it. Now I know that is not easy.

This is what you do to set yourself up for succes!

1. Be honest with yourself. If you really don't like to exercise and have been unable to stick with a program in the past, don't plan on working out for an hour, because you will only be setting yourself up for failure.

2. Take a look at the exercise equipment you have at home and exercise with those. Only exercise for about 20 minutes at a time, even 20 minutes, 3 times a week will make a huge difference. Put on some music and tone. Toning is key because toned muscles will have you burning calories, even while you sleep.

If you need help in this area, I would love to help you and set you up on a program. This can be done in a few different ways. One, by using my manual. I could make some recommendations using the exercises in there. Or, we could set up a time where we can workout together and I could show you some exercises via my live video chat room.

Also, it's very important to keep in mind any physical limitations you may have when setting up a program. It is a really good idea to at least consult a professional before starting.

Eating

Here is what I recommend to all the clients I work with.

1. Stop eating at mealtime as soon as you feel full.

2. Between meals and after dinner, eat fruits and veggies only. As much as you like.

This does a few different things. First, you are getting the foods into your body that will give you long lasting energy. Second, you are retraining your body as to what types of foods it feels comfortable with. Finally, you will definitely be taking in less calories.

3. Do keep a food journal for about 4 days. Then have a look at it to see what you can cut out on a daily basis. Your coke needs to go. If you take out your coke, you would be taking out a huge amount of calories each day.

When I first started to do this, I took out cream in my coffee. That was 200 calories at least, every day. It makes a huge difference.

These changes are not easy, but after about a month, they become much easier so one on one support, or a support group is a must.

4. Finally, if you falter, do not, I repeat, do not be so hard on yourself. That is imperative.

These are healthy habits that you want to live with. We all have times where we don't exercise, over eat, that's o.k., that's life. But do your best on regular routine days to exercise and eat right, then when you go out for dinner or the holidays come, it really is o.k. if you enjoy desert or treat yourself.

12 years later, I no longer have trouble with eating between meals, I do eat occassionally after supper, but it's o.k. because I now have my metabolism built up and do I enjoy cream. Yes, at church on Sunday mornings, I buy it at Christmas time, special ocassions and I drink it and enjoy it until it's gone. Then I don't buy it again until the next special ocassion.

I hope all this helps. Any other questions, please post. I would love to help you out.
