I started making ‘family’ Christmas ornaments last year to help my daughter raise money for her mission trip.
They were so much fun to make!
We probably spent far more than we ever raised but had a wonderful time doing it.

Diet Program Reviews – Getting Back in the Swing of It All

It’s been over half a year since my last post and much, much longer since I did any posts on diet program reviews. So, I thought it about time that I get back to it with upcoming days of spring and summer.

My first diet review will be for what I’m doing right now – create my OWN diet plan. I’ve gone through Jenny Craig and NutriSystem, both are plans that had required you to by all your food from them. The basis of these plans is portion control (in addition to other nutritional values). So, I figured I can create the exact same plan without spending all the money the other diet programs require.

First thing I did was to take a trip to my local grocery store and see what was available in the pre-packaged foods. There were many to choose from. I went to the freezer section to select my lunch and dinner entrees. For lunches, I know that I need things that are quick and easy and able to be microwaved from the office; they also need to be lower in calories to make this venture successful. For lunch I got a bunch of different types of frozen pizzas –
Smart Ones pizza minis, three cheese pizza, etc
Lean Cuisine four cheese pizza, deep dish pizza, french bread pizza – many more!

Dinners, I also found a great selection of frozen meals. I’m not a big meat-eater so I was able to find lots of pastas, fish and other respectable entrees.

Breakfast, I decided I would either stick to breakfast bars, frozen egg sandwiches – anything that I didn’t have to weigh and measure and came already portion controlled (which is the point of this plan).

Last – dessert and snacks. Well, I found tons of options here. To satisfy my ice cream need, I got weight watchers (Smart Ones) desserts. They have a cookie-dough sundae that is amazing (if you don’t think of it as ‘real’ ice cream). Then I was able to find another huge assortment of 100-calorie packs. I know, they’re all packaging and super expensive compared to buying the regular size. But, again this is all about portion control and I’m not well enough yet to trust myself to do the portions.

I started this last week, had a few slips and now – after Easter, I need to get serious again.
Monday! They best day to get serious about a new diet program.

That’s all for now!

What Benefits Can You Expect from an Ice Massage?

Though many people think of warmth when they think of the therapies that they receive from a masseuse, an ice massage also has a wide range of helpful benefits for a number of different types of medical conditions. As a form of cryotherapy, it is an effective treatment for several forms of musculoskeletal conditions and injuries.

An ice massage is practiced by using frozen water in the form of cubes, packs, cups, or specialty therapy devices, in order to help reduce swelling, inflammation, and pain to tissues that have been injured. When properly applied, it can also help to ease or mobilize tissues so that healing will be promoted. Both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions can be treated in this way.

The key to the benefits of ice massage is the fact that it helps to reduce the flow of blood to the injured area, which results in decreased swelling. The less inflammation and swelling there is, the less pain the recipient will feel. Furthermore, removing heat from an injured area is a natural form of pain reliever (analgesic), as the tissues are numbed, muscle spasms become less frequent, and the metabolic rate of the tissues slows.

Many people enjoy an ice massage due to the immediate relief they feel, in addition to the fact that it is a natural therapy that does not require the use of drugs and medications.

Are you suffering with plantar fasciitis? Or heal spurs or just sore feet? There are steps you can take to soothe your sore feet. Today we will discuss the benefits of foot supports.

At your local drug store you can purchase insoles, arch supports and cushions. If you suffer from chronic foot pain it is advised that you consult with your podiatrist to have custom made supports for your feet.

Most common type of support for the feet is arch supports. This type of device is made to build up the arches to help lessen the pain. Arch supports help to re-align the foot and ankle bones. They also in evening out the weight distribution which can take pressure off the areas of the feet that are sore. The support can also be used for people whose shoes don’t offer enough support. In addition to relieving pain, they can also provide balance and support which in turn can help improve a person’s posture.
Athletes are prone to foot pain and because of this it is crucial that they have the proper foot supports. The type of support they need can help prevent foot injury. Getting proper foot support in athletic footwear can also help their knees and prevent future problems.

Whether you are a seasoned athlete or have a job that requires you to be on your feet all day, foot problems are something that causes many people to suffer. Fortunately, many foot issues can be helped with proper foot support.

Fitness Options for Cancer Patients in Special Circumstances

The benefits of better physical fitness for all cancer patients have been making headlines for over a decade. Researchers are regularly confirming these benefits for different types of cancer, different forms of exercise, and the variety of treatment programs. Studies have consistently shown that aerobic exercises can be safely coupled with strength training for most patients, and the benefits grow just as fast as the fitness level of the individual.

Every patient will bring a different set of precautions and existing fitness level to the program, and this means that every exercise program should be designed with the circumstances in mind. Many studies have focused on endurance aerobics, such as walking and light jogging. These standard forms of exercise are appropriate for most patients, but patients in special circumstances will benefit more from other types.  Some conditions that call for specially designed workout programs include post-op recovery, limited function or palliative care, and cancer of the bone or connective tissue.

Exercising for Post-op Recovery
Surgical advances in recent years have reduced the invasiveness and sped up recovery for some forms of cancer surgery. Prostatectomy, for instance, can now be performed with micro-incisions that minimize complications related to bladder and sexual function. Other forms of surgery are by necessity still highly invasive and have a long recovery time. The two most common types are mastectomy and surgery for colorectal cancer.

A review of randomized control trials published in 2010 showed that exercise interventions specifically designed for post-op recovery after breast surgery were highly effective at returning range of motion to the upper limbs. The long-held concern that exercise may contribute to lymphedema was also found to be invalid. Patients in these trials reported no complications. Of course, the key to this is responsible use of the specific exercises. A fitness expert can help in teaching these and ensuring proper form, and there are also DVDs available for those without the benefit of an expert. Similar benefits and programs are available for those undergoing other types of cancer surgery.

High Risk Patients
Elderly patients, those with limited mobility, and mesothelioma patients on palliative care can all gain the benefits of physical activity. However, the type of exercise and intensity will need to be more closely monitored to prevent dangerous injuries. The good news is that fitness experts are routinely employed to help in these cases, and the expense is covered by most insurance plans.

Musculoskeletal Cancers
Cancer of the bone or connective tissue is not a contraindication for exercise. In fact, most patients will still be able to use many types of traditional gym workouts. The special consideration here is that fitness programs should include some form of weight-bearing exercise while avoiding high-impact forms. Weight-bearing exercise prompts the body to build new bone and connective tissue, which may be essential in preventing fractures.

In special cases, it is imperative to seek out expert advice on the safest and most effective forms of exercise. This will ensure benefits and minimize the risk of injury.

Shake Weight

My only New Year’s goal is to add exercise to my daily routine. So, a couple month’s back I received a Shake Weight thingy.
It’s been laying in the corner gathering dust since it came into my house.

I’m going to start using the Shake Weight today – as instructed and I will give a full review in one week. I’m told I only have to use it for 6 minutes a day – I think I can even handle that! I just did it for about 1 minute and I can definitely feel it already.
