My favorite podcast is fat2fit radio. Now they have power tips. I like this show because it helps you get through the process of losing weight. It’s not an easy task. I have wanted to give up many times. It was their idea to blog. The homework this week ” Come up with a list of 5 things, that you could be in control of ,if you really wanted to, that will affect your weight and fitness level. 5 things that I am in control of mmm? I think the number 1 thing is the choices I make about eating. I bring my lunch to work. I was eating Quiznos or something equally horrible. This also takes the stress off of “what will I have for lunch”. Number 2 what goes into my mouth. Work again. People are always trying to feed me. You think because I work for a health organization it would be easy but no. We get rewarded with Cold Stone,Jamba Juice or Pizza. I just have to say no! Number 3 working out is up to me. I am in control of that. No one else can work out for me. I have to make the time. Number 4 stress. I can’t eliminate stress but I can help control how I react to it. Eating is not the answer. Number 5 relaxation. I have leaned to say no to extra activity and things that cause stress in my life. What 5 things are you in control of? Do your home work it helps.

I crave new foods! This is exciting to me. I used to crave salt and vinegar chips, brownies, and jalapeño cheese dip. I never considered my self a big junk food eater but now that I look at it I could do pretty bad when I wanted to. I went to the grocery store today and I didn’t even go to the chip aisle. I went to the healthy food section. I wanted to get more flax seeds to add to my almond butter. Muscle Chow Cookbook has a good recipe for doctoring up natural butters such as almond and cashew to make them even better. Almond butter with flax-seed is the new crunchy for me . I eat it with bananas. It’s m y new night-time snack instead of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. I now want avacado instead of mayo on my sandwich. At work we have Quiznos or pizza for lunch during meetings. I can turn it down with confidence. I had a sandwich with whole wheat naan, spinach, ground turkey (seasoned with mexican spices) and sun-dried tomatoes. Yum! I feel like the lean cuisine commercial only better because I made it my self. When the girls are drinking 24 oz Jamba Juice for afternoon snack I pull out my Amazing Meal Chocolate Infusion and mix with almond milk. I still crave food. It’s just different. Do you have new cravings?
