I don't have much to say lately.
--I'm back to work--yay for better eating :)
--I'm working out at 6 am every morning--it's going well but my running is not on track with the Couch to 5K program--oh well :)
--My husband comes home this weekend, so after all the time of adjusting to this new schedule, I feel like we are getting back on track.
--My 4 year old son has been diagnosed with ADHD and we started meds. I'm thinking about joining a parent support group.
--I'm PMSing this week and craving ice cream like there is no tomorrow but I have not bought any!

Hope all you are doing well.

Hello! Good for you on fighting the ice cream craving. I'm familiar with that one. Ice Cream is my favorite food. :)

Working out everyday at 6am, you are getting it done!

Wow, that's impressive. I can't remember the last time I saw 6:00 a.m. on the clock!

I too was diagnosed with ADHD as a child. It was almost unheard of at the time, and now every second child is being diagnosed with it.

I was on ritalin for some time, and if I could offer any insight, I'd suggest to steer clear. Our bodies gradually become accustomed to it, so the prescription needs to be constantly adjusted and increased.

The best treatment I had was adjusting behavioral patterns. I had exercises to teach me how to focus, how to control my thought processes, and use my energy.

I guess I could compare it to this- You're overweight, so you go on the slimfast diet & atkins. You've lost weight sure, but you haven't modified your eating habits. The slimfast is just a band aid for the present. It's not correcting the real issue.

At one point I was taken to a podiatrist because I was always walking around on my toes. I didn't have a problem with my feet, I was just so riled up all the time that I was litterally on my toes!

A large percentage of children don't outgrow this. This is a lifelong struggle, but it does get easier, I can assure you.

If you have any questions please please don't be shy =)

I should take your lead and work out at 6am... that would be the perfect time for me. Getting it out of the way and getting my day going before everyone else.

Hope everything goes well for you and your son. I know ADHD can be quite challenging.

Let’s face it. Who wants to be fat, especially women. It is a known fact that obesity in this country has become an epidemic. Why? If you look at TV, you will notice the media is constantly bombarding us with ads about food.
Why are advertising agencies flooding us with so many TV commercials about food, especially about McDonald’s or Burger King? The simple fact is they want you to get fat so you will go out and spend more money on diet pills. This way you can get skinny and then start all over by going back to the fast food joints to get fat again. It is a catch-22 scenario. It is a vicious cycle.

Understand one fact. The heath condition of the majority of people in developed nations has deteriorated to such an extent that it has literally become a crisis. According to experts, about 70% of the adult population living in the U.S is overweight. This means if you are thin and healthy you make up the minority.

This is a sad fact and something that needs to change. To think that the normal way to live is to be out of shape, overweight, and have all kinds of diseases? It is insanity. To think that nine out of ten people are obese is a bad stat. And this is what this country is leading to.

Why is this country leaning toward getting fat? It is because most of us live sedentary lives. Kids are not spending their time running around and playing games outside. Instead, they jump on their video games or spend time surfing the Internet and chatting with friends or others.
Besides the above, people are getting fatter because of the way they eat. They try to grab something quick and end up eating something they should not. Everything that is bought from the store is processed. It is refined. Most foods are packed with chemicals to preserve them for shelf life. We live in a fast-paced world. For this reason people claim they don’t have time to cook or are too tired to. So they grab quick junk foods from corner stores, fast food joints, and restaurants.

The plain and simple fact is that people have become lazy. In order to get out of that, you need to push yourself to maintain your control. You have to act responsibly.

The solution to being overweight is simple. Make smarter food choices, prepare your own meals, and get out and exercise. If you do this, you won’t have to worry about being fat.

If what is contained in this article scares you, then you need to pick up a copy of my e-book Fast Track To Fat Loss.

Once you do this, you will learn the right way to eat and will lose that weight and keep it off as well. Just go to to learn more.
