We all love desserts. You’d have to be a turtle to not to like dessert. But desserts are bad, and fruit is good, and all that nonsense means we shouldn’t eat dessert, right? Wrong, if it’s this dessert you’re eating.

I found this recipe at www.kraftfoods.com.

This is 1 dessert you can feel good about.

So, we all know it’s bikini season and come on, who doesn’t want an easy diet to get you beach ready fast?

My favorite carbonated water is selzter. I can go through like 20 cans in a week!

My favorite carbonated water is seltzer. I can go through like 20 cans in a week!

Nobody, that’s who. So before I tell you this ‘easy diet to get you beach ready fast’ you may want to know that it sounds too easy. Too simple. Too silly.  But for people like me, who love to drink coca-cola or any other soda, then yes, this diet may work for you.

So next time you have a craving for your favorite soda (who doesn’t love a good old Coke on a hot summer day?) grab a carbonated water instead (or some of you may know of it as ‘fizzy water’). If this does seem too boring, well I find it boring too, but have found a way to make it yummier and healthier. Add fruit! Nothing makes my sparkling water better then half a cut of grapefruit. This way you have all the nutrion of the fruit, with all of the satisfaction of soda. Yum!

So grab a fizzy water and drink away the pounds to a new, hotter you.

Mmm, vegetables. Does that sentence sound wrong to you? Well it shouldn’t, because some

Move over cake, theres another delicous food in town.

Move over cake, there's another delicious food in town.

vegetables are really yummy! I know I must sound crazy, but some are actually tasty.

One of my favorites is carrots. They are sweet and crunchy and ever since 5th grade I’ve loved them! Besides being delicious they also protect you from cancer, have lots of vitamin A (did you ever hear that carrots are good or your eyes? They are! If you don’t have a enough vitamin A it can cause you to have bad eyesight), and they have lots of antioxidants and minerals. Are you starting to love vegetables yet?

Another one of my favorite vegetables is spinach. Yes I know,everyone thinks spinach and Brussels sprouts are horrible, but really I think spinach is great! I like it cooked in cream and butter and garlic. Yum! Here are some good things about spinach. Spinach has lots of iron and contains high amounts of “lutein” and “zeaxanthin.” It is believed that these two nutrients may be important for protecting your eyes against some of the bad effects that can be caused by oxygen. Spinach is also is a rich source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, magnesium, and several vital antioxidants. The list of benefits goes on and on.  Loving vegetables yet?

And my last ‘favorite’ vegetable is cherry tomatoes. I used to pick them fresh when I was a kid and I still love them today. Here’s some reasons why you should love them to. Tomatoes have lots of vitamins and minerals and are especially known for having tons of vitamin C and A. How can you not love vegetables yet?

So do you know believe that vegetable are not only incredible healthy but delicious? Thought so.

Inside cardio. Outside cardio. Both healthy, both heart pumping cardio, but, which one’s better? I have been confused by this question for  a while. Inside cardio is so convenient, but outside is so fresh. Inside cardio can

See what I mean, outside cardio is prettier.

change up with a channel switch, but outside cardio is so pretty and actually can get you some where. So which one to choose? I think outside cardio.

Why?

I think outside cardio because the fresh air keeps people accelerated. When you’re inside a room it can get hot and stuffy, so you get uncomfortable faster.

I also think outside cardio because it isn’t boring. When you are running or biking outside you are constantly seeing new things and new people, and even if you run the same path everyday everything will always be a little bit different, whether it’s a bird singing or just the weather. When you’re inside the scene isn’t really changing that much, you’re in the same room looking at the same things. SO over all I think outside cardio is the best choice, but inside cardio has it’s ups too.

When you’re inside the weather doesn’t matter. Plus you can watch the T.V. while you’re working. (Hello Oprah!) You can also do inside cardio from the moment you get out of bed. Nobody’s going to see you so you can just throw on some sweats and get working.

And why I’m I writing this? I’m writing this because yesterday I went on the most amazing off road bike ride, and even though I was swearing in my head every time I went over a root, it was a great experience. It’s impossible to have that much fun running on a treadmill.  So grab your bike and your sneakers and get outside, because outside cardio is fun and healthy.

Have you ever chosen a shirt or dress, and then half a week later realised you didn’t like it? Well, it sucks when you do, and it wastes money, which in these times, is not the smartest thing a girl can do.  I have found rules to avoid this problem and I believe they work.

if your clothes dont fit, get new clothes. Just because your wearing a size 4 doesnt mean your not a size 5.

If your clothes don't fit, get new clothes. Just because you're wearing a size 4 doesn't mean your not a size 5.

  • Choose your clothes like you choose your men, make sure they’re trusty, flattering, and kind to your body.
  • When you buy a shirt, dress, or pair of pants, think of all the things in your wardrobe you could wear it with. If the list is under 5, don’t buy it.
  • Make sure that you like what your going to buy. If you’re going shopping with friends, it can be hard not to but the dress when they say “OMG, that dress is soooo cute! I will die if you don’t buy it’ but only buy it if you want it.
  • Make sure the clothes really fit you. Don’t just buy it if you you like, make sure you like it on you. No matter how cute it may be on the rack, that does not give you permission to buy it.
  • This doesn’t have to do with buying clothes, but it does have to do with saving money. Every 7 years or so, instead of buying new clothes or going around in unflattering clothes, take your clothes to a seamstress and have them refitted.

So, now you have 5 new rules on choosing better clothes, do you want to go shopping? Well, now that  you know these rules, you can.

Is it yummy in here, or is it just those?

Is it yummy in here, or is it just those?

I’ve met the devil (and his name is blueberry muffin)! Now normally I’m pretty good at resisting temptations, cookies, cake, brownies, but when it comes to theses suckers, I just can’t resist.

Blueberry muffins seem healthy, look healthy, but aren’t healthy. Some of theses babies are 500 calories or more! But they have blueberries, so they must be kind of healthy, right? Well, they might be healthier then an oreo (mmm, oreos!) but that doesn’t mean that they will have less calories then an oreo.

So how do you resist these favorite go-to foods. I’m about to tell you how. Rule 1, when you walk down a grocery store hallway don’t head down the desert isle, even if there are some wonderful smells wafting down the hall, calling you over to take a bite of warm blueberry goodness…see look, just thinking about it makes my mouth water. So in a nutshell, don’t go anywere near the desert isle.

Rule number 2, try to find healthier subsitutes like, plain muffins, smaller muffins, or if you’re really feeling healthy just plain blueberries. So in a nutshell, find healthier subsitutes for the chosen food.

Rule 3, try to eat in moderation, so instead of having 2 muffins, have 1. This will save you extra calories while still letting you get your fill of desserty goodness. So in a nutshell, eat in moderation. Follow these rules and you’ll eat less, feel guilty less, and most importantly, weight less.

P.S. After reading my comments I would just like to say that if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say it at all! ‘Just trying to keep this blog a happy place! 🙂

You dont need wieghts to work out!

You don't need weights to work out!

Did you know that most people burn about 2,000 calories a day, doing what? Nothing! Just by breathing, walking, living, you are burning up to 2,000 fricken calories a day! So do you want to make 2,000 into 2,300 just by doing a couple small things a day? Well, duh, the answer’s yes (just in case you didn’t catch on) and you better listen up because I’m about to tell you how!

Firstly, try to fidget. I know when you were a kid your mother always told you (or at least mine did) ‘Sit up straight, and stop fidgeting, it is not very lady-like at all,ect.’ well it turns out that fidgeting can burn up 200 calories a day! So a day’s worth of fidgeting is equal to a small chocolate bar!

Secondly, try not to sit down. It’s this simple: the more you stand, the more you walk, the more you walk, the more calories you burn, the more calories you burn the skinnier you are. Easy as pie.

Thirdly, try to walk as much as you drive, so if you you drive 10 minutes, you walk 10 minutes. If you drive an hour, you walk an hour.

And lastly, try to smile. Muscles are muscles so even smiling can be considerd a work out! So fidget, stand, walk, and smile as much has you can and you might get a pleasant surprise, a couple pounds off the to-do list.
