I wanted to share this with you…

April 25, 2011

Dear clients, friends and family,

I wanted to share with you some more great information.  I mentioned last week that we have all been using

http://www.livestrong.com/

for logging our food and activity levels during our Spring Makeover challenge.  It really is a fabulous site.  Logging your food is super easy because it has a data-base of probably thousands of food items making caloric intake calculations really easy.

It will also easily calculate how many calories you expend during exercise each day.

And last based on your weight loss goal, it will calculate how many calories you need to consume each day to reach your goal taking into account your exercise and lifestyle.

You should definitely try it out.  Logging is one of the simplest ways to ensure you reach your goals!

Ted Schatz, my team leader, also posted a list of good foods to always have around for optimal fitness, weight loss and health.  I wanted to share that list with you: Read more on I wanted to share this with you……

Losing winter body fat…

April 18, 2011

Dear clients, friends and family,

I love this time of year. We are starting to see more sun, days are longer and everyone seems to have a renewed sense of energy. It’s one of the reasons we launch our Annual Spring Makeover challenge at this time of year. Plus people are ready to shed the pounds that many accumulate over the winter.

And I’m not immune to this phenomenon. I work out year round but definitely have a ‘winter weight’ and a ‘summer weight’ and they tend to be about 5 pounds different. So I always join in on our Weight Loss challenge to help motivate me to ramp things up a bit and get ready for the beach and all the fun summer activities.

This year, I joined Ted Schatz’s team – personal trainer extraordinaire. I thought I’d share with you his instructions to all of us. Hopefully, you will be able to pull out a few tips and follow along with the program with us. Here’s Ted’s tips for losing body fat safely, quickly and permanently:

Lose weight while on holidays!

April 11, 2011

Dear clients, friends & family,

I just returned from Spring Break in the Dominican Republic with my kids. We had such a blast! We stayed at the Dreams Resort and were so impressed with the customer service, entertainment and activities and friendliness of the staff.

Most people when they go away on holidays gain a few pounds because they get out of their routine and are drinking and eating more than usual. Well, one of these days, I would love for you to vacation with me because guess what…I always lose weight when I go away on holidays. And the best part is I still indulge while I’m there. Keep reading to find out how…
