                                                                        Our visit to Publix with Rachel, our nutritionist, proved very enlightening. She was able to show us some very interesting facts on exactly what to look for and how to read the contents. You think you know, but there is always something new to learn. We visited the middle aisles of the store which are a downfall for most of us. She showed us new produc . . . [View Full]
What inspired me more to participate in the Brentwood Home Page Be Healthy Challenge- getting healthy or losing weight?  While both played a part in pushing me to do this, my motivation is to make healthy changes.  I definitely know how to count calories when I put my mind to it.  As I’ve mentioned before I’ve lost the same 30 pounds multiple times.  What I had never really paid attention to was whether or not my calories were good for me. High cholesterol runs in my family and mine  . . . [View Full]
                                         Easter is upon us. We all have our own ways of celebrating the season, but I'm sure we all have a few traditions in common. My family goes to church, and we wait to hear “Jesus Christ is Risen Today” since it's a classic Easter hymn (that we then precede to interject into conversation the rest of the day). After church, we get out the Easter baskets for the kids and watch them tear through their gifts inside. Then, we have a b . . . [View Full]
Northerners and people from dry climates are often surprised to find that many states in the American South don't have basements. Whether they're looking for extra storage space or even a spare room to entertain guests, these newcomers to southern climes are confounded by the regional preference for outdoor storage sheds and other above-ground options. In many places in the South, basements are certainly possible, but there are a number of practical reasons why they're not common. Here's why So . . . [View Full]

The NYT just published a remarkable study that shows that exercise does indeed improve skin tone and composition--almost 50% improvement! This is from researchers at McMaster University in Ontario, the entire article is here: NYT artcle "They found that after age 40, the men and women who exercised frequently had markedly thinner, healthier stratum corneums and thicker dermis layers in their skin. Their skin was much closer in composition to that of the 20- and 30-year-olds than to that of o . . . [View Full]
I'm going on Spring Break vacation this week and am really worried about how I will manage without my team. Tabatas by myself are pretty boring.  Not only that, but I will be eating out and not in my normal routine. I'm so glad to have the accountability of the Be Healthy Challenge or I might just say "forget it, I'll get back on track when I get home." But not this time! Team Maryland Farms Y5 is in it to win and I'm not letting my team down! I've talked about my sponsor, Dr. Foley at the H . . . [View Full]
Walls vs Aisles?? Say What?? I have always heard that, have you? Are you curious what I’m referring to?? I’m referring to the Grocery store and the concept of shopping the Walls of the store more and less of the Aisles. That is easier said than done, and I’m still a work in progress! Old eating habits and cravings are hard to break! This week during our Be Healthy Challenge thru the Brentwood Home Page, we were given some valuable information, information that I had not heard of. I spok . . . [View Full]
A calorie is a terrible thing to waste. So the fact that I ended Monday with 773 calories remaining according to My Fitness Pal app sent me immediately to Sonic for a hot fudge peanut butter shake. NOT! But I did end the day with calories to spare, which can be explained by the 400 calories I burned at last night’s workout at Prairie Life Fitness, the Cool Springs fitness company hosting my “Prairie Strong” Be Healthy Challenge team. Two years ago during the first BHC challenge and too . . . [View Full]
I'm supposed to post a photo of food, to show you something of the journey I'm on with the Be Healthy Challenge.  I can't figure out how to post a photo!!!  So, for the photo credit, I'm going to tweet @markacleveland the most wicked food I've consumed recently.  Follow me or watch for the #BeHealthyChallenge Changing eating habits is critical to success.  I'm so happy to hear people say "you look great" or "you've lost A LOT OF weight" except for the part where they emphasize "A WHOLE LOT" . . . [View Full]
