How to Host

eparty

You can host the online Avon party right on Facebook. I will sent up an event page just for you and your guests. You can invite everyone that you know, near and far. We will discuss a date that you would like to start your online Avon party. You can do it for as little as an hour up to five days long. My average party is usually three days with great success.

During the duration of the online Avon party, I will show you Avon’s latest products and the sale items. We will play games, so that your friends will have a chance to win some free products. This will be shipped directly to them by me. I will do all of the leg work. All that you have to do is invite your guests.

Flat Belly Challenge

Flat Belly Challenge

flatbelly

My team has a fitness challenge coming up on August 24th! If you have done one of my clean eating groups before, this will continue to focus on nutrition along with a fitness program. If you have never done a group before, that’s OK. You will not be missing out on anything. We will teach you what clean eating is and how to incorporate fitness at a beginner level. This will all take place in a private Facebook group and we will be together for five days to jump-start your healthy journey.

How to Join

We will also a include daily workouts that you will be able to do at home. Also have me assigned as your coach or another Temple Fitness and Beauty coach. That’s it! Be sure to commit for the full five days. Be sure to post and participate daily and reap the rewards.

What to Expect

During the time period that we are together, I will post a daily lesson. You will also get a simple meal plan and fitness and nutrition tips. We will have some fun, get to know each other, but most importantly cheer each other on in reaching our goals. To help you feel more comfortable this group will be a “judgement-free zone.” We will share each others triumphs and struggles.

Sometimes the summer can be a struggle to stay motivated. I know I have days where I am already hot and don’t want to do anything. This flat belly challenge will help to get your workout mojo started or back again.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. The team is here for you.

What Happens Next?

We don’t focus on just doing a quick diet or short term goals. Once this group is over I have an ongoing group for a lifetime journey. Our focus is to learn healthy habits that we can continue for the unforeseeable future.

Carb Addiction

carbcycleCarb Addiction

We know that eating highly-processed carb-heavy foods isn’t good for us. When life gets busy we tend to gobble up the food and move on. We then tell ourselves that we will eat healthier next time.

Evidence is building that, at least for some of us, our brains don’t quite work like that. A small study has shown that hours after we eat a highly-processed meal with lots of carbohydrates – think white bread, or potato chips – we start to crave more of these same types of foods creating our carb addiction. “Highly processed carbohydrates might program us to crave food in general,” says David Ludwig, lead author in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. “And fast-acting carbohydrates in particular might be setting up these cycles of high blood sugar followed by low blood sugar, food cravings — and then overeating.”

Researchers gave 12 obese young men two test meals – milkshakes that were not only identical in calories and carbohydrates, but also contained indistinguishable sweetness, appearance, smell and overall deliciousness. The only difference was the nature of the carbohydrates – one shake contained high-glycemic index carbs, and the other had carbs of low-glycemic index. (Foods with a high glycemic index, or GI, raise blood sugar or blood glucose levels higher and faster than foods with lower GIs.) As far as the young men who participated in the study knew – the shakes were the same. The two shakes were given to the young men in a lab environment on two different days, and researchers tracked their blood sugar and hunger levels periodically for four hours after the meal.

At the four-hour mark, the men were given brain scans using functional magnetic resonance imaging, or fMRI – basically, a way of measuring brain activity. They found that the areas of the brain related to reward, craving, and addictive behavior lit up for the men in the high GI group as their brains reacted to the fast-acting carbs.That’s important, Ludwig explains, because four hours after a meal is the key time when decisions are made about how much to eat at the next meal. We’ve seen the connection between junk food and cravings before, as past studies have shown a link. But previous research used foods like cheesecake versus virtuous fare like boiled vegetables – in other words, foods you know and would have a strong psychological reaction to. This new research is an attempt to divide the biology from learned behavior, Ludwig explains.

Madelyn Fernstrom, NBC News diet and health editor, advises that this study comes with a few limitations. For one, it’s a very small study, looking at the brain scans of just 12 obese men – plus, the fact that all the subjects were obese, something that Ludwig says was done because the overweight among us are, in general, the ones that have the most trouble maintaining a healthy weight. Still, at this point, it’s too early to say that these cravings lead to obesity, says Fernstrom, who adds that an important follow-up study would be to do the same experiment using lean people. In real life, we don’t exactly have the option of choosing between a healthy and less healthy milkshake – unless you’re planning on switching to an all-Soylent diet.

Elisa Zied, a registered dietitian in New York City, advises dieters to think about all the delicious and nutritious foods you can eat – rather than trying to immediately eliminate all processed foods at once. “Of course limiting processed foods–especially the kinds that are loaded with trans or saturated fat, sugar, and sodium–is a good idea,” says Zied. “But taking a positive, inclusionary approach to food and eating may very well be a more effective way to alter your diet than being more extreme.” So if junk food lit up the areas of the brain involved with addiction – then is junk food addictive? It’s not that simple. The idea of a “food addict” is a bit ridiculous, in the first place, says Fernstrom, Ph. D., CNS. We have to eat to survive; we don’t have to consume alcohol or smoke cigarettes, for example, so these terms are not interchangeable. “The notion of food addiction is controversial, and the study doesn’t answer that question,” Ludwig says. It provides evidence for the possibility that highly processed food — apart from its calories, apart from its tastiness — could be tricking our brain into craving more food than we actually need. “So the bottom line is: Limiting these fast-acting carbs that have invaded our diet in the last 30 years may help overweight people avoid overeating.”

Finding Time for Fitness

time_for_fitnessFinding Time for Fitness

One of the most common excuses  reasons that people don’t workout is because they don’t have enough time in a day. When it is actually a lack of motivation. Some people don’t like it, so they don’t find time for fitness. Find something that you can enjoy, whether it be a sport or dancing. You are going to want to schedule this time for you. Yes, grab a calendar a physically block out the time for yourself. You wouldn’t break an appointment with yourself, would you? Here are some ways to combat that.

1. Record your favorite TV show and watch it at later time. If you do decide to watch it, get up and move during commercials. It can be as simple as jogging in place or doing some crunches. Having shorts burst of high intensity movement can work wonders.

2. We all have to clean house and tidy up our spaces. Work it into your cleaning routine. Picking up toys and running around putting things back in it’s place, counts! Hey, get your kids to join you and have a dance party at the end.

3. If you have a full day, wake up just a half hour earlier to fit it in. I know it’s hard to give you some of your rest. Are you worth it? Once you consistantly start workout out, you won’t miss the sleep. You will have more energy to face your day. You will be more productive and probably get more accomplished in one day.

Some of my challengers prefer to work out in the evening. It is totally up to you as long as you get it in. You will sleep better, too!

4. Just start somewhere. You can take a five minute walk during your lunch break. Before you know it, that may be at a half hour.

5. Find a partner to workout with. This can be a huge motivator. It will also help with accountability. You can give each other a boost. They don’t have to be local, either. As long as you can check in with each other daily, this can work out great. Send a text in the middle of the day to find out how the other is holding up. Be each other’s cheerleader to stay encouraged and keep going.

I have to be honest, once I do my workout in the morning, I get pretty lazy sedentary for the rest of the day. I have bought myself  a fitness band that reminds me to move every hour. Just getting about around 200 steps every hour keeps me active.

Benefits of Power Walking

Here are some great tips for power walking. No gym needed…

Boost Health

There are some days when you just won’t want to do ‘proper’ exercise. This might be because you’re exhausted, drank too much the night before, have aching muscles or are just not in the mood.

power walk

What to do on these days? I would highly recommend power walking. I know some may find this amusing, and runners may look at you with a little superiority as you walk on by, however there are benefits so it’s time to let go of the ‘walking isn’t exercise’ snobbery!

1. It is good for your fitness. I put on my running app whilst walking at a fairly quick rate (not out of breath) for five minutes.. I burnt 25 calories…now if you went for a 30 minute walk, this would become an excellent 125 calories burnt! Not too shabby at all…

2. It gets you outside. Rather than making a halfhearted gym attempt, being…
