Today I am babysitting - and scouring the web for inspirational quotes.  As I prepare for Win, Lose, or Blog (that starts Monday, yikes) I am looking for some nice reminders to post around the house.  Of course, some of my favorite reminders are pictures of my kids.  On my fridge I've posted my highest fasting blood sugar - the morning I got that reading it scared me.  I knew I couldn't let it get that high ever again.

We are starting our exercises, drinking more water, changing our routine, and working on making the house reflect our desire to be healthy.


great list to use when considering snacks.


The proper activity done a few minutes before eating can encourage food calories to get shuttled into the muscle cells, before it has a chance to get stored as body fat.
Increases insulin sensitivity and burns some extra calories.
Air squats are the best option out there for a quick workout before meals.
Read more about it in Tim Ferris’s book “4 hour body”.
By rebloging this I accept this challenge, and I will do my best to accomplish it.
sounds good to me!

I’ve decided I am going to do this. Mostly because I am pretty much OBSESSED with squats and I will think of any excuse to do them. Do this challenge, it looks awesome!
Gonna have to think about that one.

What inspires you toward health?
