Sticking to your New Years Resolutions?

January 14th, 2015 | Posted by Deborah in Cool Tips - (Comments Off on Sticking to your New Years Resolutions?)

It’s not always so easy!

We have the best of intentions when we state our New Years resolutions but how easy is it to stick to them?  I have a few goals for myself that I thought I would share to hopefully inspire those seeking to get into shape and eat healthier.  We will check back in on these in about two months to see how it is going for me (and you!).

  • Tabata Classes.   I’m going to hit the gym and my Tabata classes at least twice a week. It you haven’t tried it yet, it is a great workout. So what does this mean for you?  This means if you’re Tabatatrying to lose some weight, tighten up, and/or increase your endurance, Tabata training is exactly what the doctor ordered.  Additionally, if you’re one of those people short on time (isn’t this nearly everybody?), Tabata training is a fantastic way to minimize your time spent working out, while maximizing the benefits of your training.

 

  •   Eating Healthy.  I am going to pack my healthy snacks (hard boiled egg, celery with peanut butter, almonds  and some fruit) into baggies and then into my snack pack……Icepops by Cool-it Caddy.   These bags have an integrated Icepops Trio1coolant that you pop into your freezer until frozen and then ‘grab and go’.  Your healthy snacks (or any heat sensitive items such as makeup or medications) are protected and kept icy cool while on the go.  The bags are small enough to fit into a tote, backpack, tennis bag, golf bag, etc.  Great for traveling also because you can skip the airport fast food! Icepops are available at Cool-itCaddy and come in four  great colors!

 

  • Stress less. Enjoy life, family and friends.  Blog post photo Jordan

An Easy Aid in the Prevention of Colds!

November 3rd, 2014 | Posted by Deborah in Cool Tips - (Comments Off on An Easy Aid in the Prevention of Colds!)

Use Apple Cider Vinegar to Prevent (and Treat!) Colds and the Flu

I thought this was a very interesting article about an easy and natural way to help in the prevention of colds and wanted to pass it along.  The article is from Organic Authority  by   .  Here’s to a healthy winter season!

Apple cider vinegar is pretty incredible stuff. But did you know it can be helpful in preventing the onset of colds and the flu?

Even in California, winter can mean a pretty nasty cold and flu season. We spent Thanksgiving in the throes of stuffy woes…and with a newborn baby it was no fun. Had I been less distracted (as in, not having a newborn!), I would have realized the time of year and all the germs that come with it. But before we knew it, there was mucus. Lots and lots of mucus.

With my normal wits about me, I would have done my best to prevent coming down with the flu by using apples-366x550apple cider vinegar, especially after we had guests flying in from all over the country to see the baby—and coming straight from the germy airport to our house! But of course, I missed the window and we all got sick, baby too.

While it’s highly acidic, apple cider vinegar actually helps the body to keep pH levels balanced, which can help prevent colds and flu germs from getting cozy in your nose and chest. A properly alkalized body is unappealing to germs.

Most of us tend to run a bit more acidic, thanks to the standard American diet, so it’s no wonder we spend the winter months battling germs.

Prevention.com says drinking a tablespoon or two of ACV at the first onset of a cold or the flu—or when someone close to you has it — will help prevent the full on bout of ick. If drinking it straight up is too much for you, mix it in with water, or hot tea and some maple syrup. You can also add it to salad dressings.

If you waited too long and have been hit by a cold or the flu, drink the vinegar anyway. It’ll help your body fight off the germs, give you some energy and help improve your digestion.

You can also use it to get rid of a sinus or chest infection. For a sinus infection or stuffy head, add 1/8 of a cup of ACV to the water in a vaporizer and leave on over night.

A Healthy Gut Is Key To Feeling Well

August 26th, 2014 | Posted by Deborah in Cool Tips - (Comments Off on A Healthy Gut Is Key To Feeling Well)

An excerpt from an  article by Karen Fernau, The Republic | azcentral.com

Listen to your gut for health advice

The gut, or gastrointestinal tract, impacts all systems, organs and cells in the body. Up to 70 percent of the body’s immune system lives in the gut.

When the gut is out of whack, so goes good health.    Halibut

“If people come to me fatigued or just not feeling well, the first thing I do is look at the gut. It’s usually the cause,” said Patti Milligan, a Scottsdale-based director of nutrition for Tignum, an international consulting business that engineers programs for executives to gain energy, mental agility and stamina.

The reason: The gut is home to 100 trillion microorganisms and more than 400 species of bacteria, both good and bad. Good bacteria keep the body shipshape. Too much bad bacteria causes inflammation and infection that can lead to constipation, acid reflux, arthritis, depression and autoimmune disease.

According to Milligan, the blame for the spike in unhealthy guts falls squarely on a diet full of processed foods, antibiotics, food dyes and preservatives, acid-blocking drugs and chronic stress. So does sleeping too little and eating erratic meals.

The way to maintain gut health is with the right foods. A healthful diet is essential to allowing healthy bacteria to do their job.

“Eating the wrong food, too much food, or eating at the wrong time can cause discomfort and, more importantly, leads to diminished health and performance,” said Milligan, whose RX for a healthy gut includes a three-pronged regimen of probiotics, high-fiber goods and healing herbs.

A side benefit of a healthy gut is a revved-up metabolism.

“People feel better and lose weight at the same time,” Milligan said. “Both should motivate anyone to eat the foods to make their gut healthy, and stay away from those that kill the good bacteria.”
