2014 Weekly Challenge #2 - Drink your Water!

2014 Weekly Challenge #2 - Drink your Water!

Drinking lots of a water is one of the easiest way to improve your health and change your body. We recommend that you drink 80 to 100 ounces every single day.

Other than the fact that water tastes refreshing and clean, there are so many other benefits of drinking 80 ounces or more of water every day. Here are just a few…

** Being hydrated reduces/eliminates headaches

** Being hydrated fights fatigue/give you energy

**Drinking water is an appetite suppressant (most of the time that you think you are hungry, you are actually thirsty)
 

Sweet Snacks

Sweet Snacks

Something that I have noticed in reviewing the food logs of many Mamas is that in an attempt to keep the calorie intake low, but still treat themselves to something sweet they will eat 1 or 2 cookies or a mini candy or something like that.  And sure, maybe it keeps you within your calorie intake range, but it's empty calories that most likely doesn't fuel your body.  Not to mention if you are hungry, it doesn't usually satisfy hunger and it also requires plenty of willpower to limit yourself to just one or two.  It's a very slippery slope when it comes to empty calorie, processed foods.  Yes, you should do your food logs and count the calorie intake to keep yourself accountable and stay within the suggested calorie intake.  So maybe those 2 cookies are just 80 calories, or a bag of those processed 100 calorie snacks makes you feel like you had a treat but didn't eat many calories.  But instead, feed your body a snack or a "treat" that sometimes c

Increase in Flu Activity is Reported

Increase in Flu Activity is Reported

Dr. Ron Chapman, director of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and state health officer, says while we are seeing an increase in flu activity in California it is not an unexpected increase, nor is it too late to get vaccinated against the flu.

"California is seeing an accelerated increase in flu activity over the past few weeks," said Dr. Chapman. "You can help prevent further spread of the flu by getting a flu shot."

While influenza activity varies from year to year and is unpredictable, California generally sees an increase in cases in late December or early January and it often peaks in February or March. According to CDPH surveillance indicators, influenza activity in California is beginning to show a steady increase and is now considered to be widespread. Currently, there are more hospitalizations at this point than expected, based on historical trends.

2014 Weekly Challenge #1:  An Attitude of Gratitude

Happy New Year!

The year is spread out in front of you like a book of empty pages, ready to be filled.  We at Mama Bootcamp want to help you make this your very best year ever by helping you find your MOJO in every way you can. We hope you will join us by participating in our weekly challenges, getting to Bootcamp and working toward all your goals. 

Challenge #1: An Attitude of Gratitude
Start off the year by actively being thankful for all the good things in your life. Remembering to be thankful for the good stuff - big and small - can help you get your "attitude on right." Whatever you focus on gets bigger and more important. So instead of focusing on the less positive (something you are angry about, negative feelings about a job, etc.) and making those things more important, take a minute to feel thankful for the positives in your life.

 

2013 Weekly Challenge #52: Annual Wrap Up and S.M.A.R.T. Goals

2013 Weekly Challenge #52:  Annual Wrap Up and S.M.A.R.T. Goals

Its hard to believe we're at week 52 and that the year is almost over.

The New Year is often a time for reflection, and for making goals, and that's what we're working on this week.

Take a little quiet time to yourself to reflect back on the last year. What did you do that you are really happy about or proud of? Give yourself some credit for those things and remember what you did to make yourself successful and to meet your goals.

Next, think about the upcoming year. There are 52 fresh new glorious weeks spread out before you and YOU get to decide what you're going to do with them!
