OT - Tone-up Tuesday

It's that time again, STalkers. Some weeks, it seems like Tuesday comes around more often than Saturday.

What's your favorite exercise for toning your glutes?

I do stairs. Up, down, up, down, up, down. Stair climbing a great way to tone your butt AND legs. The combination of sinultaneous ankle, knee, and hip extenstion means you work your legs naturally and without the impact commonly ASSociated with jogging, running, or sprinting.

Happy Tuesday, STalkers!

I don't know what I'm doing right - becauseI feel like a fat walrus AND I'm sitting here eating a Big Mac - but I had to pull my belt in all the way to the last hole. If this keeps up, I'll have to make a new hole in my belt. Crazy!

How goes it with everyone? Any tips, secrets, new dieting recipes you'd like to share? Yahoo

It's that day again, STalkers!

What's your favorite kind of exercise? The one that doesn't FEEL like exercise?

I luuuuuuuuuuuuuuurrrrrv to swim (and hate to sweat!). When I'm in the water, I can FEEL the stress and tension and bad vibes flowing out of my fingertips with every stroke. I am simultaneoulsy invigorated and soothed. Best part? If I'm sweating, I can't tell!

Sorry I'm so late... This is day 2 of the week from Hades.

How's it going with you? Are you up? Down? Trying to get the feeling again?

Love to hear what's working for you, what's not. Success, failures...

I'm failing. Doc had me on steroids which caused me to scarf down food like a starving Jabba the Hut. I haven't stepped on a scale, but my waistband is tighter. Dammit!!!

Salad for lunch today and watermelon for dinner. Trying to get back on track. 

Hope you're having a good day! If not, I hope it improves. <3

Are you a runner? Do you enjoy being outside, your feet pounding the pavement? Or chasing a deer or rabbit along a trail in the forest? I will never understand the people who prefer running machines over the great outdoors. I miss my running days! I wasn’t much for running on a track – I preferred getting out in nature, fields, woods, along the beach. Nothing but the sound of birds, my heart pounding, my breathing, crashing waves, and the occasional sound of a startled deer or bobcat (he looked ticked!!)

Happy Tuesday, STalkers! How goes it?

What do you do when you're craving sugar? Do you give in to your craving or do you have a satisfying substitute?

I am a chronic insomniac and caffeine does nothing for me when I’m tired, so I’ve developed a bad habit of using sugar to give me boosts of energy. It’s a habit I need to break, so I need some substitutes.

Prunes
Prunes have a bad rep. They’re dried plums and naturally sweet. (Much tastier AND moister than raisins, IMO!). A serving of six is just 100 calories.

Happy Tuesday, STalkers! How are you doing with your health/exercise plan? Craving some sugar? Read on!!

We need sugar to survive, both physically and emotionally (where's my Mint Mackinaw Island Fudge?!). You can have too much of a good thing (ugh, I ate it ALL), but do NOT cut out ALL fruits when trying to limit your sugar intake. Fruits contain important nutrients like vitamin C, fiber, and antioxicants. Bonus: Increasing your intake of fruits and veggies has been shown to reduce your cancer and mortality risk.
