Studies show that being happy keeps you thin!

The hormone serotonin reduces your appetite and
directly affects your body to either burn fat or store
fat. Serotonin is called your good-mood hormone.

Boost your levels by exercise, high fiber/low glycemic
carbs (our friend oatmeal), good fats, and how about
some folic acid (spinach).

And if you want to know the most important 2 meals
to eat to help you succeed check out Randy’s latest
on which 2 meals will either make or break you success
to losing fat and gaing lean muscle.

Awesome Pancakes You Can Eat

Sunday, August 9th, 2009

I love breakfast. I mean I go to bed at night just so I can
get up for breakfast.
I just love to sit down, relax, and start the day with breakfast.
Man, I love breakfast.

Well we know this is the most important meal of the day – it starts
us off with energy, and it puts protein in our bodies so we are in
an anabolic state instead of a catabolic if we don’t eat.

One of my favorite hot meals is pancakes. Yes pancakes.
Not your flour, grease, and butter ones. Oh no grasshopper.

Here is my recipe for my healthy, stomach sticking, awesome
hot cakes.

In a mixing bowl combine 1 cup oatmeal( I have blended oatmeal first),
1 cup blueberries, and 1/1/2 scoops vanilla protein powder,
2 egg whites, and a table spoon of yogurt.

Stir this up and pour onto a hot pan that has been sprayed with
a small amount of non-stick spray. Cook 2-3 minutes on one side
and flip and cook 2 minutes other side.

Put on your plate and use a “simply fruit” preserves to spread on
top. (Randy uses natural peanut butter).

I have also used pineapple for the fruit and it is awesome also.

Give this a try and let me know how you like them.

And if you have any healthy recipes to share please do so as
we have many people world wide looking for healthy alternatives
to eat.

We are all in a rush some days. I try to always
sit down and eat my breakfast, but some days
I have to hurry out the door if one of our 5 dogs
isn’t cooperating.

On those days I, and you, always have time to
still have a complete nutritious breakfast.
A necessity, and for me I go into teaching boot camp
and group class as soon as I get to the Better Life
Fitness Center so I know this recipe will take care of you.

How you ask can you possibly have a good breakfast
and get out the door. Well I am glad you asked and
here is what I do.

6 ounces favorite juice
11/2 scoop whey protein (vanilla)
1/2 cup oatmeal (old style-not cooked)
1/2 piece fruit
1 teaspoon natural peanut butter
4 ounce ice water
1 scoop ice cubes

Put juice in blender turn on low
Add protein
Turn up a little
Add fruit
Add water
Add oatmeal
Add peanut butter
Add water
Add ice (have lid on and put ice in fast and get lid back on
Crank it up high and blend to consistency you desire.

This is better than ANY instant breakfast package you can
buy at a store. Move over Carnation, Brenda is here.

You are starting the day with protein, fiber, complex carbs,
essential fats, and fruit with it’s nutrients and antioxidants.

No cooking, no waiting, pour in your travel mug and hit the
door and get on down the road.

Enjoy and if you have any creations you would like to share
with our readers please do so and bless us.

Insulin is one of our major hormones. We all know the
seriousness of high insulin as it relates to diabetes.
Most of us eat always pushing our body to cope with
this. You know-pasta, potatoes, bread, white rice,
too much fruit. Eating these foods puts your body at
Insulin has big effects on aging–got your attention
now ladies?
We don’t want low insulin levels either, again not eating
But let’s deal with high insulin levels right now. This can cause:
*high blood pressure
*accelerated aging
*bad immune system
*ankle swelling
*burning feet
*bad memory or focus
*irregular periods
*sugar cravings
*weight gain – especially belly fat
Listen up, high insulin can cause your body to take your estrogen
production down. So now you have a low estrogen and high
insulin and your body will begin to alter it’s shape, causing
unhealthy weight gain, which then can lead to high blood
pressure, heart disease and and more hormone imbalance in
your body.

So, get right on your eating and exercise, and live a long and
healthy life. Oh, and aging gracefully is sure nice too.

I am really enjoying my summer. It is a beautiful time of the year
that I love being outside and working in the yard and soaking up
that awesome sun. I fee so good when I am getting sunshine on
me (must be the vitamin D and serotonin) and getting my hands
all dirty (minerals absorbed?). But I do love it.

My husband Randy just laughs and enjoys seeing me get all dirty
and smile from ear to ear.

I hope you have the energy and vibrancy to be outside this summer
and enjoy the weather as much as I do.

I must say we are using our grill a lot this year. And we love eating
healthy. This is one of the reasons I have so much energy and can
go all day. People often marvel at my pace I keep, but I believe if
they ate as well as me and exercised, they too would reach a new
level of energy and endurance.

But I will say the mind and mental attitude has a lot to do with me
also. I do not harbor negative thoughts, I am always positive, and I
am one who has very high faith. Randy class me his faith warrior.

So get outside, get a smile on, and grill some salmon. Or grill up a nice
chicken breast and some vegetables. Ohhh, how about some turkey
burgers I wrote about a week or so age. Now those are awesome.

Oh man did i get a lot of great feedback on that great
tasting turkey burger. And if you haven’t tried it yet
break out that grill and get busy.
Well one of mine and Randy’s favorite side dishes is
mashed potatoes. Well Randy is one who uses his
special ketogenic diet a lot, especially when he wants
to drop fat fast. So potatoes are off the list of foods
we can eat. So there goes our mashed potatoes.

Well I have a recipe for “mashed potatoes” for those
of us who are watching calories and/or watching
carbs. It is really delicious and you have to try it.

Mashed Cauliflower.

Cauliflower- steam or microwave till tender (don’t boil for this)
Mash or food processor with 1 tbsp butter, 4oz cream cheese,
till fluffy like mashed potatoes- serve as is or add turkey
bacon bits and onion powder.

You can place in oven safe dish, cover with cheese and bake
at 350 for 20 min or so for twice baked “Fuax -Tatoes”

If you do a good job on the mash no one will know the difference!
This re-heats for left overs better than potatoes which is a bonus.

Try this and let me know what you think. I know you will be glad
you did as they are great. And low in calories and carbs.

Dear Friend,

Hello, it’s me again, your old friend Body Fat. I know it
has been a while since we have talked. I know I have
been on your mind this summer while you were covered
up at the beach working on that farmer’s tan. Thank
you for thinking of me.

I’m writing to you to let you know it is getting to be that
time of year again. Yes, it’s my favorite! I like to call it
the Summer Retreat: July 4th, vacation, and then Labor Day.
I hope you are as excited as I am! I have a plan this year,
though. I’m going to try and bulk up as much as I can so
by this fall, you’ll forget what your muscles looked like,
or your ankles for that matter.

Candy, gigantic meals, endless desserts, and dinner parties!
Not to mention the b.b.q.s that we wouldn’t dare miss. I like it
when we stay home on the couch instead of going out to exercise
or even going for a walk.

Which leads me to my second point of writing you. Remember
at around the turn of the New Year when you decided you wanted
to try and get rid of me? You tried that Interval Training stuff and
those really quick body weight exercises. Man that really burned
me up. Wow when you did those Better Life Boot Camps, you
almost got rid of me for good! Glad you quit.

Thank goodness you quit that routine after four weeks. I’m not sure
why you did, but am I grateful. I like it here, its cozy and you take
good care of me on a daily basis by not eating breakfast, having a
huge lunch, then no food until dinner. That really keeps me going,
and makes me stronger every day. I have to thank you for that.
Keep those vegetables and proteins away from me as I really am
not a big fan of those foods and they actually make me weaker.

Yes, this Summer Retreat season is going to be great. You, me, and
even more of me. Let’s not have a repeat of last year when you tried
to kick me to the curb. I don’t hold it against you, as I think we are
great friends and would hate to see us part. I would love to expand
my living space from your belly to your thighs and maybe expanding
the hips a bit more. I’m planning on needing the stretching room.

I look forward to being on your side for as long as you will have me
here. You are a great friend. We don’t need that silly health and
exercise anyway. Leave those intervals and weight training
routines to those who don’t have the bond you and I have. Yeah,
they may look amazing and be healthy but isn’t our friendship great
too? And I mean who really likes Boot Camp any ways?

Well, I won’t keep you. I know you have much eating of fast food
and desserts to eat so you can get that blood sugar fluctuating!
It was great talking with you! We should do this more often! Take
Care and get ready for the fattest fall season yet!

Your friend and companion,
Body Fat

We are in the summer season. We will all be very busy and not pay as
close attention to our health during this time. Make a plan now and
keep it in the forefront of your mind.

Get to Boot camp now and
have a great healthy summer and go into the fall leaner and healthier
so that winter isn’t a stresser on you.

Love ya,
Your Health & Fitness Expert

It might not be what you think.

It isn’t exercise.

Not a super food that will help you burn fat.

It’s not even a revolutionary exercise machine from Sweden!

It’s the one thing we all need at some level to succeed.

It’s Social Support.

Whether it is the support of your family, your friends, co-workers,
or others who have the same goals as you. Leaning on others who
are experiencing the same challenges or celebrating the same
successes as you is very important.

Why do you think fitness bootcamps are so popular?

Why social groups on Google and Yahoo and other sources are
so popular? Why do you think Weight Watchers is so popular?

It’s the social support we all want to be a part of. Being a part of
something important and special that others are involved in
motivates us to work harder so we can ‘brag’ about our successes
and it is acceptable.

If you find you are struggling to lose weight or reach any goal for that
matter and are going at it alone, try searching for others who are like
minded and feed off from each other. Leverage each others experiences,
celebrate each others successes. And reach your goal together. Set
your mind on the right path and your body will follow.
