My Food Journal

Today was a better day for me. I got over my hump day and decided to get back on my hoarse, starting with my nutrition. Nutrition is very important when it comes down to losing weight.  If you are eating whatever you want while you are exercising at a high activity level you are just maintaining  your weight. So, I decided to get on track with my nutrition and to start exercising on the 1st of April, which is SUNDAY!!!!! I also joined calorie count to help me keep track of ALL MY MEALS and at the end of the day calorie count will tell me how many calories I consumed for the day and what I can do to lower my calorie intake or increase my calorie intake.  Create your food journal @ http://www.caloriecount.about.com and lets start making these baby steps together!!!!

P.S.Since I signed up through my facebook account you can like my fb page @www.facbook.com/curvygirlexp and see what I ate for the day and how many calories I obtain…Can’t wait to share!!!

When 1 door Closes another 1 Opens!!!!

ImageToday I one of my consultants quit on me in the middle of a project and it brought my spirits down…so my spirit reminded me when 1 door closes and other 1 opens and then I came across this scripture on this blog call,”When Life Gives you Lemons …Make Lemonade”

One Door Closes..Another Opens
Revelations 3:8 KJV
I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

When God leads you to the edge of the cliff, trust Him fully and let go, only 1 of 2 things will happen, either He’ll catch you when you fall, or He’ll teach you how to fly! The power of one sentence! God can shift things around for you today and let things work in your favor. God closes doors no man can open & God opens doors no man can close. If you need God to open some doors for you just ask.
Have a blessed day and remember to be a blessing…

What’s Your Mission in Life?????

When I went to church yesterday, the sermon was “What is Your Mission in Life????” The sermon made me think about My Journey and how I can Guide Women through there own Journey. While thinking about this more and more; the preacher said, “Be one…Bring one…and Build one” this made a much larger impact on my thought process. To me this meant that  MY MISSION has become to Motivate others to start The Journey…Bring one woman at a time into The Journey alongside me and Build a healthier LifeStyle one woman and one day at a time. My Mission in Life is to motivate as many women to join the Journey to become a Better, Healthier Woman!!! If we as Women, make becoming Healthier a LifeStyle, then our families will follow and make that same Change.Loving and teaching our children how to maintain a Healthier LifeStyle  definitely makes this Journey worth while!!!!

Result: Estimated Health Risk: Estimated Body Shape:

Since storing excessive fat in the abdominal region (known as the “apple” shape) is correlated with an increased disease risk, this test is one way to measure your risk for lifestyle and weight-related diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease and more. Storing fat in your lower half, known as a “Pear” shape, is actually a healthier site for fat accumulation. The less common “avocado” shape is somewhere between an apple and a pear, with health risks higher than a pear-shaped person, but somewhat lower than a true apple-shaped person.WHAT’S YOURS!!!!!
