Choose Life!!!

Hello SuperStarrs, in this week’s video I am encouraging you to Choose Life!!!  In all things and every decision, we have a choice to choose life or death.  Even with eating, we have multiple choices throughout the day to Choose Life.

We don’t have to make eating Healthy so complicated.  We don’t have to spend all day counting calories and figuring up points of what we are eating.  We didn’t get unhealthy from eating too many fruits and veggies.  It was from eating too much sugars, fats and processed foods.  If we are eating mostly good stuff then we have less room for the extra junk food.  To make it simple for my kids all foods go into two main categories.
  1. ALL THE TIME FOODS. Examples are Fruits, Veggies, Whole grains, Lean Meats, Dairy, Nuts, Beans, & Healthy Fats.
  2. SOMETIME FOODS. Examples are Cakes, Cookies, Pie, Ice Cream, Chips, White Breads, Fried Foods, Candy, Soda, Fruit Snacks, and all other Treat Foods.

Basically All The Time Foods, is just that.  They can be eaten all the time.  Even with healthy fats and dairy, they satisfy you and have health benefits to them.  Most people don’t want to drink  whole gallon of milk or a cup of olive oil. Naturally our bodies tell us when we have had enough, and are satisfied. However eating an entire bag of chips, box of cookies or any other process foods are different. The sugar can become addictive leaving you wanting more and more.  The foods have been engineered to keep you eating them, so that you will continue to buy more of their chips, soda, snack cakes etc. Also these foods are high in bad fats, sugar, salts and other chemicals that are artificial.  Because they are not natural, our bodies have a harder time processing them and knowing when we have had enough.  Which is exactly why they should be eaten only sometimes.

God created an AMAZING Garden for us!!!  There are so many different choices and flavors to enjoy.  Have fun exploring.  My favorite ways to eat my veggies is in soups, salads, anything Mexican, Italian dishes and on Pizza!!!
Places you can study for more info.
In the New Testament, Acts 10:9-16 is where Peter has a vision from the Lord.
Mark 7:14-23 Jesus tells us it’s not about what we eat.  It’s all about what we put in our hearts.

4 Tips to Help You Get Your Workout Done!!!

Hello SuperStarrs, We are all gonna have days when we just want to stay in bed or on the couch.  I know because I have totally been there before.  This is where you have to press through until exercise becomes a habit. When you feel and see the benefits, then you will have exercise as your lifestyle, meaning you do it no matter what.  However you will still have days that you will want to talk yourself out of it before you even start.  Today’s video I am sharing what has helped me to keep going even when I’m having a off day.

Screen Shot 2017-03-09 at 4.21.55 PM

 

  1. Prepare the night before.  It saves time and frustration having everything ready to go. Keeping all your workout gear in one place helps you to always know where everything is.  Just remember to put it back where it belongs, when you return from you run or the gym.
  2. Use Caffeine as your friend.  When you need extra energy to get moving, drink some caffeine.  Don’t drink too much if you work out after work or evening, because it could back fire on you not being able to sleep later. So just have a cup of coffee, you don’t need a triple shot at 6 o’clock at night.
  3. Citrus. Whether you drink, eat it or just smell citrus, it wakes you up. I LOVE oranges!!!  Just peeling the orange smells SO GOOD!!!
  4. Create a Workout Jam. Create your soundtrack for getting healthy and feeling good!!!  Music motivates and moves our moods so much!!!  I’m sure you have experienced before, having a bad day and then your song comes on the Radio, Pandora, or Spotify and in just a few seconds of hearing your Jam, all is good in the world!!!  Music moves us, so use it to get yourself moving into the Healthy Strong Body that you want!!!

What is your favorite music to listen to when you work out???

What songs do you suggest that I add to my Workout Jam???

Who else still uses an iPod???

Share with me when you have made your Workout Jam, comment below DONE!!!

20170302_162009

And Because I love you, I am going to tell you the Truth.  It might sting a little, but I know you are tough enough to handle it!!!  Seriously, it’s so important for you to know this Truth in order for you to have REAL Success on your Journey. So if you can handle the the truth, then watch the video below and because I love ya, there in a Bonus Truth Bomb at the end!!! 😃

If this is you, then you can move onto reading blogs and watching videos with someone else that only makes you feel good and doesn’t challenge you to actually make a change.  I’m not your Girl and that’s OK.  When ever you are ready to make a change, I will welcome you back with Open Arms.
If you just sang that “Open Arms” in your head and “Can Handle the Truth”, then we are gonna have fun hanging out together!!!  You will only have lasting changes when you are honest with what you are, and are not willing to do. You got to exercise to get healthy!!!  It will be different for each of us because we all have different needs and goals. In order to build strength, endurance, flexibility and burn up extra fat, you are gonna have to Get Moving!!!  You are gonna have to work for it!!!
The Truth Will Set You Free!!!
I encourage you to continue to always search for the Truth in God’s Word.
textgram_1488590431
The Truth is so important because it’s the Truth that will set you FREE!!!  Notice in this scripture it’s two parts.
  1. Jesus says if you hold His teachings. We hold onto what’s important to us, and what we don’t want to lose. Other translations says if we “Abide” and “Remain Faithful” in His teachings. Basically, we know and obey His teachings.
  2. Then, you will know the Truth and it will set you Free.

We got to do our part, so that He will be able to do His!!! The more time you spend time in God’s Word, the more you will learn about Jesus and the deeper your relationship will be with Him.  He will lead, guide and help you, with what you are to do.  Our relationship with Jesus is the most important relationship we have in this life.

Your Homework now is to take a good look at your calendar.
Decide when you are gonna get your workouts in and schedule them into your calendar, to NOT be interrupted. Protect this time. Our workouts is “Our Time” to work on our health.
textgram_1488595345
The first few times you have to say no to someone, is the hardest.  You don’t even have to tell them why that time does’t work for you.  You are just “unavailable” at that time.  After you have been faithful to your workouts, people will know that is your time, and that you are not going to move or cancel your workout.  Anyone trying to pressure you to miss a workout, is not supporting you on your goals of getting healthy.  People who love and support you, will encourage you to take that time for yourself.  Only dream killers discourage!!!
Alright SuperStarrs, go make Healthy Choices while you are “In the Weighting”.

Feed Yourself the Good Stuff!!!

Hello SuperStarrs!!! Today I’m chatting with you on the importance of feeding yourself the “Good Stuff”.  Watch the video below to where I share with you my thoughts on the “Good Stuff” and some tips that help me to keep feeding myself the “Good Stuff”.

 

screen-shot-2017-02-23-at-3-26-46-pm

 

When I get home from the store and unpack everything, I put the veggies and fruit into the sink to rinse before putting them away.  Except berries.  We don’t rinse them until we are ready to eat them. If they sit in the fridge with any extra moisture, they will get fuzzy pretty quick.  I fill the sink full of clean water and about a half to a cup full of vinegar. I let them sit for a few minutes before wiping and rinsing them off.  Make sure they are good and dry before putting them away.  I let them air dry on a Kitchen towel or hand dry them if I’m in a hurry.

Baked Eggs

I find it’s so much easier to bake eggs rather than boil them.  Here’s how I do it.

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Place eggs in a muffin tin.
  3. Put them in oven to bake for 30 mins.

20170221_161351

4. Take eggs from oven and place in an ice bath for 10 mins. ( I just fill one side of the                 sink up with water to cover eggs and add ice.)

20170221_161640

5. Done.  Enjoy your eggs or stick them in fridge until you are ready to eat them.  They               will have a small brown spot from sitting in the muffing tin. It’s all good, just eat it               or cut it off when you peel them.

Feeding Your Spirit 

I LOVE this scripture so much that I had My Amazing Talented Husband put it into the Design when He redid our Kitchen.  I wanted everyone who came into our home and ate in our Kitchen to know that “The Lord Is Good” and to know that is why we are Blessed!!!  I want them to accept the invitation that Jesus offers to them.  I pray that their life will be changed and Blessed because of their relationship with Jesus!!!

This is My Husbands Brilliance of creating this glass art piece above our pantry. He is just so Creative and Talented!!!  One of the many reasons I Married him!!!

What can you do to help feed yourself the “Good Stuff”???

What changes are you going to make to help yourself to eat your veggies???

Is there a veggie you are gonna give another try???

When in your day are you going to feed yourself with the Truth found in God’s Word???

Are you going to start your day, have an afternoon pick up, or end your day in the Word???

Some days can you do all three???

Remember that every time you make a Healthy Choice you are Loving Yourself!!!

Life Interruptions

By now you are getting into a workout routine, drinking more water and eating healthier and then a Life Interruption happens.  Instead of getting bummed out and discouraged, refocus and use this time to get other things done.  This video I share 5 things YOU CAN DO even if you can’t get your normal workout in.
screen-shot-2017-02-17-at-7-52-23-pm
1) Do what YOU CAN DO!!!  If you really want to make a change, you will find a way to keep going!!!
2) Take This Time to Work on Projects or Meal Prep.  Most of us have projects we can work on. Organizing the closets, Decluttering the Kitchen or Bathroom cabinets, or shredding the paper clutter.  Not only will we feel great about getting stuff done but it will help make our environment more peaceful.  The kids can help too.  You can get them in the car, drive to the car wash, have them help clean up their mess and then drive them to finally cash in the free slushes or ice cream coupons they’ve gotten from school.  Added Bonus is when they know they are gonna be the ones wiping up the soda syrup from the cup holders.  They start remembering to throw their drinks away instead of leaving them there to leak!!! Your Welcome 😃
3) Use This Time to Research.  Anything that you want to know more information about research it!!!  Even if it something you are just curious about, check it out!!!  At least then you’ll know yah or nah.
4) Enjoy This Time With Your Kids/Family/Self!!!  God gave you a rest day. Enjoy it, don’t waste it fretting about not getting that one workout in. Enjoy today. We are not promised tomorrow!!!
5) Get Your Kids Involved With Your Workout.  One of the many reasons I wanted to get healthy is so I can do things with my kids without getting too tired to continue.  So get out there with them and see if they can keep up with you!!! 😉
So what are you gonna do this weekend or when the next Life Interruptions happens??? Comment below and share with the rest of the SuperStarrs!!!
Thanks SO much to each and everyone of you for watching my Videos, reading my Blog and following me on Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, Twitter and Pinterest!!!  It’s AMAZING being able to share my story with you. I pray you find encouragement, change your life and are able to share your story!!!
