I Really Hate Dieting

Herman, Ditty, Boo & Sugar

And I’m not good at it either.
You would think losing 10-15 pounds would be easy – it’s really not that much weight to lose.
But, I just can’t seem to do it.

So, I’ll paint instead.

Smart Ones English Muffin Sandwich with Turkey Sausage

Review – Frozen Breakfasts – Smart Ones

I think I should review these frozen meals that have become a staple in my life as I try to lose weight for the upcoming summer season (as well as my health).
I’m going to start with breakfast. Lean Cuisine doesn’t really have any breakfast selections so, today I will review the few Weight Watchers or Smart Ones breakfast selections that I have tried.

The three that I have had are –
English Muffin Sandwich with Turkey Sausage
Pancakes with Turkey Sausage
Waffles with Turkey Sausage

Smart Ones English Muffin Sandwich with Turkey Sausage

Smart Ones English Muffin Sandwich with Turkey Sausage

The sandwich is very good for a frozen breakfast. I discard (or give to the pups, I should say) the egg. I don’t care for eggs and even the smell of this perfectly round, yellow circle tends to turn my stomach. But the dogs are so happy every time I microwave that sandwich. The English muffin gets warm but not over-done in the microwave; the cheese melts nicely and the turkey sausage is quite tasty. The sandwich – egg and all is 230 calories. I subtract the 30 calories for the egg and add that to the dogs calories. A great little sandwich for a mere 200 calories.

Smart Ones Waffles with Turkey Sausage

The pancakes and waffles with turkey sausage are fine. Really, they are the same except for the shape and the pancakes are 10 calories more. These breakfast entrees both come with a little packet of syrup. The sausage is just as good in the form of links as it is as a patty on the sandwich. The pancakes/waffles are a little bland, but overall they are fine and I do have them occasionally. My dogs don’t like them nearly as much because they don’t get any eggs! The pancakes come in at 280 calories and the waffles are 270 calories. This is higher in calories than I like to use on breakfast, but every now and then I like a ‘bigger’ breakfast.

That’s all for now.
Tomorrow – lunch!

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.

Foot Supports Can Help People with a Varity of Foot Issues

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.

What is Best for Sunburn?

Glad you asked!
Sun

I come from a long line of pasty-white people and we burn. It doesn’t help that we don’t properly prepare each time we leave the house.
I spent yesterday, the 4th of July out in the sun and of course, I got a sunburn.
But, I came across a product that is the absolute best thing I’ve found for sunburn – Sunburnt!

I wish I had known of this years ago, but I’m glad I’ve found it.
I don’t think you can get it online but it’s at K-mart, Walgreens and similar stores.

Twizzlers!!!

No Flour? No Sugar? no, really???

Twizzlers!!!I was recently told that to lose weight permanently I would have to permanently give up flour (white flour that is) and ALL sugar – regardless of the color.
I thought to myself, there’s no way I can do that. For a person who doesn’t particularly like fruit and vegetables, what else could I eat if I gave up flour and sugar???

The thought behind this, I believe is that flour and sugar to the ‘over-eater’ is akin to alcohol to the ‘alcoholic’.
It does make sense when I think about it. Unlike the alcoholic, I can’t NOT ever have ‘another drink’. I have to eat to live (I know, I don’t have to live to eat). But, if I were to permanently stay away from the foods that I absolutely love, which, by the way, ALL contain vast amounts of flour and/or sugar.
But, can I survive only eating foods that don’t have those two ingredients?

That thought took me back to the Mediterranean diet – that was the ‘lifestyle’ I most loved over all these years of trying to lose weight, get healthy and stick with it!

There were a vast assortment of foods that I thoroughly enjoyed back in my Mediterranean days….
Fresh tomatoes
olives
olive oil
salmon, tilapia, tuna
whole wheat breads, bagels
hummus
brown rice cakes
salads
veggie burgers
and so much more…
