End of the Week Review 4/10/15

Hopefully, everyone has recovered from Easter celebration activities. How about those peeps? Stale yet? My son and his wife charge their kids "candy tax". No peeps get stale there! Seriously, feasting has it's place-- only on the holiday. If we keep the eating where it ought to be up to the holiday gathering, then go back to healthy again, the extra pounds don't pile up. If you do a knock out workout the next day or two after, that helps too.

In the meantime, we have our Big Change Challenge going on with only 2 more weeks to go! How is your change coming along? If you are reading this wondering when this began or what it is, no worries. Just start. The guidelines are at the Big Change Challenge tab. Click on the highlighted words and it will take you there. This can be any change you want to make in your life whether it be weight loss, stop biting your fingernails, whatever. If you can do it for 6 weeks, you can continue to 12. It only takes 12 weeks to break a bad habit and 1 year to make a lifestyle change. You can do it!

In case you missed them:

Food of the Week: Eggs
Since you might have some Easter eggs left in the fridge, you might be wondering how beneficial they are to your weight loss efforts. Eggs contain 6 grams of protein and are only 70 calories each (uncooked, boiled, or poached). They do contain 5 grams fat, but only 1.5 grams of that is saturated fat. If you keep them boiled or poached, you will not add additional calories or fat to them making them an egg-cellent source of lean protein! Nutritionally, they contain choline, lutein, and zeaxanthin which are great for brain development in unborn babies, brain function in healthy adults and help prevent macular degeneration for overall eye health.  As for weight loss, protein helps keep you feeling satisfied as well as slowing the processing of your carbs so they can fuel your body longer.  Cage free eggs have a better overall quality to the cheap ones on sale because of the conditions the hens live in and their feed. Enjoy those eggs!

Exercise of the Week: Purse Curls
Also known at the hammer curl, the purse curl is a variation of the bicep curl that targets only the biceps. It has the thumb forward the entire time. The benefits of the purse curl is that it takes the strain off the wrist and thumb for people with arthritis or tendonitis. It can be done with weights, bands, straps, and any other equipment that can be used to do a bicep curl. It can also be added to other exercises such as squats or lunges for compounds. By the way, you don't have to bend your knees like the picture to do it effectively. 

I'm looking forward to hearing the news on your Big Challenge results! Drop me a line at totallyfit63@gmail.com.
