End of Week Review 6/16/2016

I attended a Christian writer's conference last week in the Chicago area. Thank you for being so patient with the quirky internet connections! I never know what will happen when I post anything for you because "Free Wi-Fi" doesn't mean it will always work! I came back with some great tools which should streamline posting the Verse of the Day, Thought for the Day, and blog posts. It's a bit challenging as I get used to these new  tools.You probably noticed some of them this week.You will also notice some changes around the website, too. So, put on your hard hats over the summer while we make improvements to what matters to you. Thank you showing some grace during this process.

On the Boards this Week:




Exercise Tip: Posture and the Belly Pooch

The "Posture Police" used to poke us in the back to correct our posture when I was growing up. Ouch! However, they were right. Slouching is bad for your back,while it gives the impression of a lack of confidence, and it makes your belly stick out. It's easy to get into this habit because quite often, seats and workstations are not set at the proper height for work. Also, if you have to work forward like caring for a child, nurses taking care of patients, or hovering over a piano or paperwork, it can cause us to forget to sit or stand up straight. Fix: One way to keep your back healthy and flatten out your tummy is to stand up straight. You may also need to do some stretches and a couple of exercises to help out. See video.

Food Tip:  Watch the Sauce!

One way you can cut your calorie intake is to cut down on using condiments such as salad dressing, mayonnaise, mustard, margarine, and veggie dips. Most people use 6-8 condiments each day adding approximately 200-500 calories a day to the waistline!

Try this: allow yourself only 1 condiment per meal. Sounds easy until you consider eating a salad and sandwich for lunch. Lightly drizzle 1/2 a serving salad dressing onto your salad and use 1/2 a serving of condiment on your sandwich. Or You could put tomato or cucumber on your sandwich to add moisture instead of adding mayo or mustard. Most of the calories from condiments come from oils and sugars.

Have a blessed week!
