Weight Loss : Success Tips for Weight Watchers Freestyle

Success Tips for Weight Watchers Freestyle So, you started Weight Watchers Freestyle and you want to set yourself up for success as best as you can. Here are some tried-and-true tips others have followed that you can use: Plan your meals Armed with the 0-point food list, you want to plan out each meal, each snack, and each dessert. Planning ahead is absolutely key when it comes to sticking to your goals. It makes grocery shopping way easier, and ensures you never find yourself hungry and without an idea of what to eat. Some people really like planning, but if you aren’t one of them, set aside a time at the beginning of each week when you aren’t busy and stick to the routine. It will become a habit.  Include a lot of 0-point foods into each meal There are over 200 foods on the Freestyle 0-point food list, which is really good news. To take advantage, you want to plan meals that use as many of these foods as possible. This keeps the point count of each meal really low. For example, a lunch …

Weight Loss : Breakfast

When you start your journey to better health, odds are your breakfast routine needs a change. Most of us feel the most hurried during the early hours, and breakfast is often less than healthy and less than satisfying. These breakfasts are meant to provide you with energy and nutrition, while also staving off hunger until lunchtime. Whether you’re an egg-casserole lover or prefer something a bit sweeter like pancakes and oatmeal, you’ll find a recipe that suits you.

Recipes : Butternut Squash + Turkey Sausage Breakfast Casserole

Butternut Squash + Turkey Sausage Breakfast Casserole
Serves: 4  Time: 45-50 minutes (20 minutes prep time, 25-30 minutes cook time) 
I like using turkey sausage in place of beef or pork because it isn’t as fatty, but can taste just as delicious with some seasoning. The turkey is joined by cubed butternut squash and spinach, so this egg casserole is bursting with satisfying flavors and nutrition. After cooking the sausage and squash, you add to a baking dish and pour over the eggs. Bake for 25-30 minutes. The whole thing takes less than an hour! Ingredients: 1 pound lean ground turkey sausage  2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil  2 cups diced butternut squash  ½ teaspoon garlic powder  ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning  ½ teaspoon salt  ½ teaspoon black pepper  4 cups fresh spinach  4 whole eggs  4 egg whites Instructions: 1. Turn your oven to 400-degrees.  2. Put a skillet on the burner and turn to medium-high.  3. When hot, add sausage and cook, stirring, until browned.  4. Scoop sausage out …

The Top Ten Ways To Start Your Fitness Program Smart


Starting an exercise program can be scary.  You're eager to
melt off ugly fat and develop a physique that won't quit. You want to find a fitness program you can stick with, and you don't want to
waste valuable time doing boring routines that get you nowhere, and leave you
tired and back to your lazy, stay-in-your-comfort-zone ways.  Plus, you want to
get the most efficient workout for the time involved and money spent.

But most people don't know where to begin.  Here's how you can start out smart.

1.  Get a thorough check-up before beginning a fitness program.
This is especially important if you're over 35,have been sedentary for a long time,have high blood pressure
and/or cholesterol,are a smoker,or have chest pains or shortness of breath.
Hopefully, your doctor will be thrilled you're
making this lifestyle change, and will tell you if you have any limitations.
2. Ask yourself these questions when planning an exercise program:
•Do I want to work out alone or with a partner?
•Do I like endurance activities, or activities that require greater mental alertness and quick bursts of energy?
•Do I enjoy competition, or do I want exercise to "relax" me, so to speak?
•Does my previous exercise history lead me to believe that I'm going to
like or dislike the activity I'm considering?
3.  Start your days smart by working out before breakfast.
Give yourself a mental boostand a metabolic surge for the day by getting going as soon as
you wake up.  If you have difficulty doing this, remember that those who
exercise in the morning are most likely to
stick with
 an exercise program.
4.Another good reason to work out in the morning is because
a night workout
could leave you too revved up
 at bedtime!  It takes about 2 hours for your
body to "cool down" enough for you to get some Z's.
5. Have a specific objectivein mind when starting a new routine.
Everybody wants to "lose weight and get in shape." But everybody means
something different when they say that. The important thing here is to be
clear on precisely what you want to achieve from your fitness program.
Focus on the next 90 days - what would you most like to accomplish?
6. This fitness program must fit YOU.Your new lifestyle in NOT your spouse's, your children's, or your best friend's.
IT'S YOURS AND YOURS ALONE.
If you can't get to a gym, get some exercise videos for a good
workout. If you are lazy about working out at home, get your butt over to a
gym and invest in a membership.
7. Challenge your bod EVERY TIME YOU WORK OUT!
Insanity is defined as
doing the same thing over and over, and expecting different results. If you're doing the same old routine
every darn day, you're body is just going to quit on you. No results, but more frustration, irritation, and anger. While your
workouts must be challenging, you must also feel invigorated after the
workout. If you're completely trashed, then you went just a wee bit too hard.
8. If you want a workout partner, find someone who motivates you, who has a
routine already in place and is getting results from it, and will let you tag
along. Have thick skin, though. This person might want his/her solitude so
s/he can focus better on the workout.
Keep asking around
until you can find
someone who can show you the ropes, who'll pick you up when you're down,
and you do the same. Or, hire a competent personal trainer.
9. If you've got a few pounds that are stubborn as a mule,
tack on 5-10 minutes
per workout.
The extra time adds up fast, and with a sound, balanced
nutrition plan,
you'll see the desired difference
in your clothes, how you
look, and on the scale.
10. No matter what activity you choose,
always warm up and cool down. Warming up promotes blood flow and gets your muscles and joints primed
to handle a fat-burning workout. The cool down gets rid of metabolic wastes,
like lactic acid (the chemical that is associated with muscle soreness,
keeps blood from pooling in specific areas (which could lead to dizziness or
fainting), and, along with light stretching, keeps your
muscles limber.
