5 Weapons for Battling Weight Loss

If you are currently in the process of battling against being overweight, you will know that it is more difficult than expected to shift those unwanted pounds. Not only do you have to think about your diet, but you also have to combine this with exercise for effective results. Only doing one of those things will slow down any weight loss progress, and might also discourage your long-term plans for a healthy lifestyle – to the point where you revert back to your old, unhealthy ways.
Thankfully, there are plenty of methods available that will help you get trim and remain that way. Read on for five weapons to use when battling weight loss.
Don’t completely cut out the foods you love
When going on a diet, and if you’re not the biggest fan of healthy foodstuffs, it is not all doom and gloom in terms of what you eat. In fact, you don’t even have to cut out the food that you currently enjoy. It could just be a case of reducing portion sizes, or going with a low-fat alternative. This way you won’t be making a drastic lifestyle change, and your motivation levels will stay high.
Suppress your hunger
If you’re used to eating a large quantity of food during mealtimes, the aforementioned point of cutting down on portion sizes may be a struggle. That is, if you don’t use a tool that will assist with suppressing your hunger. The all natural hunger control tablets by, help you feel full quicker and reduce the need for excessive food consumption.
Exercise on a regular basis
A little bit of exercise here and there will help to a small extent, but it’s not going to generate a notable level of success. The best route to dropping weight – and also improving your fitness levels – is by having a regular exercise routine. Whether it is going to the gym three times a week or taking a walk each morning, frequent activity is the ideal step towards a healthy life.
Start a new hobby
Starting a new hobby is a great way to get trim. Plus this doesn’t have to involve something as strenuous as the previously mentioned exercise. Having an interest in painting or playing guitar will not only aid you in moving about (especially if you have classes/organized events outside of your home), but it will also help divert your attention from feeling the need to consume food. The latter is due to the fact you won’t be settled into your normal routine, where grabbing a bite to eat might be the norm.
Stay patient
When dieting, a trap many fall into is a lack of patience due to not gaining immediate results. What you need to understand is that any healthy, sustainable diet plan is one that needs to be based on a long-term plan. If you hit a week where you only drop a pound or two (or even put on that amount), don’t feel discouraged – it’s the long-term goal that should be the focus.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
