Think about why you binge. Do you do it because you are not eating enough throughout the day? Do you do it because of stress or negative emotions? Or maybe you binge on certain foods because you restrict yourself of them? You obviously don’t have to answer that to me, but think about that. Maybe keep a journal and write down when you binge and how you were feeling when you did it and before you did it. As far as overeating in general, instead of taking a heaping plate full of food or grabbing a bunch of what you want to snack on, try your hardest to take a portioned size. If you are not eating enough or frequently enough throughout the day, that might be contributing to some of it. Try and practice mindful eating the best that you can. When you feel like you are craving something or need to binge, have a small healthy, guiltless snack. Some grapes, strawberries, kiwi, banana, an apple. I read that an apple helps aid weight loss and can help you let go of binge eating (X), but I’m not sure that’d help you much because you are a healthy eater already. I definitely do suggest keeping a food diary and writing your thoughts and feelings. It might begin to help (: read more..
You can’t lose the fat on your arms by just doing arm Workouts, but you certainly can tone them up with some muscle. I definitely suggest push ups and tricep dips. If you need/want to modify them, “girl” push ups are definitely okay and modify the dips with a bend in the knee’s. Here are some more exercises for arms. I think regular and forearm planks challenge the arms as well as the core so correctly hold that pose for as long as you can. If you have dumbbells, that will help as well so you can do some of the other exercises on there. There are also some other arm stuff in my workouts page.You can also, of course, lose some fat in your arms by eating healthy and getting regular exercise. I can go into depth about that if you’d like. Just let me know. read more..

I also love rollerblading, but I’m bad at it so that makes it less fun… especially when you keep coming home scraped up xDI used to roller blade a lot when I was younger. Went to the roller rink weekly during middle school and learned how to skate backwards and I was better at it than going frontwards. I’m going to have to invest in a new pair of blades.

1 15-ounce can beets
1 cup cider vinegar
2 teaspoons salt
1 medium onion, sliced into rings
Drain liquid from beets into a small saucepan, reserving the beets for another use. Add vinegar, sugar, salt, bay leaves and cloves to the pan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves. Pour the pickling liquid into a large deep bowl and stir in onions; set aside to cool for 1 hour. Meanwhile, place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook at the lowest simmer for 10 minutes. Pour off the hot water and run cold water over the eggs until they are completely cooled. Peel the eggs. When the pickling liquid is cool, place the peeled eggs in a 4-cup container; pour the pickling liquid over the eggs, then spoon the onions on top. (The onions should hold the eggs under the liquid.) Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours. Remove the eggs and onions from the pickling liquid. Refrigerate in an airtight container. Serve the onions (which are also delicious on burgers) alongside the eggs, if desired.

Every year, immunization and vaccines save three million lives worldwide. Unfortunately, another three million lives are lost to vaccine-preventable diseases because individuals did not receive vaccines because of poor access, limited finances or misinformation.[[MORE]]In North America, immunization programs have been so successful that vaccine-preventable diseases, such as polio, diphtheria, mumps and measles, are rarely seen, leading to complacency about the need to immunize. There is a danger in this complacency. If Canadians continue to be under-immunized, it could take as little as two generations for the reappearance of these serious diseases. Québec has been dealing with a measles outbreak since April 2011 with over 750 cases reported. In Canada, immunization remains one of the most cost-effective public health measures. Immunization costs are easily recovered through the reduced need for medical care and hospitalizations. In this case, an ounce of prevention is truly worth a pound of cure… and more!Locally, Ottawa Public Health ensures that 35 publicly-funded vaccines are stored safely and made available to physicians and Health Care agencies in Ottawa. Most publicly-funded vaccines, including those recommended for adults, are available through family physicians or at walk-in clinics. Others are available at school and community clinics at various sites throughout the city.April 21st 2012 marks the beginning of National Immunization Awareness Week in Canada. Whether you are a parent, a young adult or a senior, please participate in National Immunization Awareness Week by checking with your health care provider to find out which vaccines are recommended for you and your family, and most importantly, whether your family’s vaccines are up-to-date. Immunizations protect you and the people around you. To locate a walk-in clinic near you, or to find out which vaccines are available through school immunization clinics, contact Ottawa Public Health at 613-580-6744 (TTY: 613-580-9656) or at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit ottawa.ca/health read more..

National Immunization Awareness Week in Canada is April 21 to 28 and Ottawa Public Health (OPH) is reminding residents to update their immunizations. Immunization is recognized as the most cost-effective way to decrease vaccine-preventable diseases in Canada.OPH and the Canadian Immunization Guide recommend that immunization begins in infancy and continues through all stages of life. Whether you are a parent, a young adult or a senior, talk to your health care provider to find out which vaccines are recommended for you and your family. Although receiving immunizations during childhood is critical, some will not provide lifelong immunity and regular boosters may be required.[[MORE]]What’s new in immunization?The Ministry of Health and Long Term Care has expanded its publicly funded vaccine program and now includes:
- Rotavirus oral vaccine for infants 6 to 24 weeks of age
- A second dose of Chickenpox vaccine for children 1 to 11 years of age and;
- Whooping Cough booster vaccine for adults 19 to 64 years of age

riiaeatsright:Originally from The GreatistSometimes I find myself cheating out my workout when it comes to the end, so when I saw this article, I knew I had to share it with you! So check out this list of 23 Ways To Push Through A Tough Workout:
1. Who’s really getting cheated?Sure, no one else would know about skipping out on the last Chatarunga. But only one person loses in that situation (hint: it’s not the super-ripped chick sweating it out on the next mat).2. Change pace.Circuit training, a killer combination of cardio and strength training, can help break the monotony of a long workout. Run five minutes, then drop and do some push-ups. Wash, rinse, repeat.3. Picture this.Visualize cheering fans or crossing the finish line to bang out one more set or lap. Or just go mental: Imagine this workout is the equivalent of the Olympic trials (no big deal).4. Grab a pal. Work out with a fit pal who will hold you to a higher standard. Stuck going solo today? Imagine they’re still there. After all, who wants to wuss out in front of an audience?5. Break it down.Set mini-goals when the going gets tough. This isn’t a three-mile run— just six measly half-mile runs.6. Savor the pain.“Pain is weakness leaving the body,” the saying goes. Pain is also proof that this workout is tough. Clearly you’re doing something right, so why stop now? (Just know when pain is signaling something more serious.)7. Compete.Whether comparing against the dude on the next treadmill over or your own time last training session, competition ups the ante and helps us forget about wanting to quit.8. Remember the end.That post-workout high? Yeah, almost there. The struggle of that final set won’t last— and when the workout’s over, it’ll be replaced by a much better feeling: pride.Read the rest at The Greatist! read more..

leanmeanworkoutmachine:Reasons to exercise alone
- You can work out whenever you want and when it best fits your schedule. Plus you never have to deal with someone being late.
- You can skip the chitchat and focus on your breath and inner thoughts. It’s a great time to make mental to-do lists, brainstorm for work, or daydream about weekend plans. Going solo means it’s really “me” time.
- The type and intensity of the workout is up to you, whether you feel like going for a run in your neighborhood, hitting a Zumba class, or following a gentle yoga video.
- You can stuff your ears with headphones and rock out to that new cardio mix you made.
- It’s OK to wear the same outfit you wore yesterday, even if you didn’t wash it. There’s no one to make a comment or complain about a little stink.
- Your workout will be completed in less time. You know when you exercise with someone else, a lot of time is wasted waiting for the person to show up, then chatting about what you want to do, and then after the workout, you can’t help but chat some more. You’ll easily save 10 to 20 minutes by exercising on your own.
- You’re your own motivation. Sometimes when I have a fitness date with a buddy and they bail, I’m more likely to skip out, too. But if it’s just me planning on a morning workout, there’s no one to persuade me to ditch, so I’m more likely to stay committed. Plus when you’re used to exercising alone, you’ll get into the habit and won’t need to rely on someone else to get your workouts in.
- It’s easier to stick to training schedules or goals since there’s no one else’s agenda to cater to but your own.
- If you’re under the weather and don’t feel like getting your sweat on, no one will give you lip for it.

Hmm… You could make something with the zucchini, black beans, brown rice, and Carrots. Sort of mix it all together or make the beans and rice, then maybe slice and steam the carrots and zucchini together. That’d all make a good dish. Or make a few Pancakes with a side of Bananas and cottage cheese. Beef isn’t the healthiest and it’s not a lean meat, but if you wanted to have some, a small portion with the first meal would be fine. If you have pasta sauce, you could make pasta with the veggie and meat on top. read more..
Hip opening poses work to open the joints and muscles around the hips. They helps to keep the pelvis and hips in proper alignment, which prevents strain and tightness in that area. Having flexible hips can ease back pain, improve circulation in your legs, help you to walk easier. Hip openers also have mental and emotional benefits. We hold a lot of tension in our hips from stress, anxiety, sadness, fear, and other negative emotions. Once that tension in our hips is released, the emotional benefits are felt. Below is a list of hip opening poses. When doing these poses, concentrate on your breath and relax your body.
- Low lunge (Anjaneyasana)
- High lunge
- Warrior II (Virabhadrasana II)
- Lizard pose (Utthan Pristhasana)
- Half lord of the fishes (Ardha Matsyendrasana)
- Cow face (Gomukhasana)
- Pigeon pose (Eka Pada Rajakapotasana) - (different variations)
- Bound angle (Baddha Konasana)
- Extended triangle (Utthita Trikonasana)
- Happy baby pose (Ananda Balasana) or half
- Fire log pose (Agnistambhasana)
- Reclining big toe (Supta Padangusthasana)
- Side-reclining leg lift (Anantasana)
- Big toe pose (Padangusthasana)
- Cat pose (Marjaryasana)
- Cow pose (Bitilasana)
- Extended triangle (Utthita Trikonasana)
- Marichyasana I
- Head-to-knee forward bend (Janu Sirsasana)
- Wide-legged forward bend (Prasarita Padottanasana)
- Wide-angle seated forward bend (Upavistha Konasana)
- Marichi’s pose (Marichyasana III)
Hm. I can try but I’m not too good with Meal Plans. One thing I suggest is to start a food journal and keep a track of your calories, even just an estimation of about how many you are consuming. You can use myfitnesspal for that or just do it in your journal. This will help you to know what, how often, and how much you are eating, and to make sure that you are getting enough calories, but not getting too many. If you put your weight, height, and how much you exercise into myfitnesspal, it should tell you how any calories, carbs, protein, and fats you should get daily. Also try to eat 3 small meals, and 3 snacks throughout the day. Writing your meal plan ahead of time will help a lot.As far as what you eat… I don’t know what you have or what you like to determine this. For breakfast - a cup of whole grain cereal with fruit, 2 small whole wheat pancakes with fruit, 1/2 cup oatmeal with fruit, a piece of toast with fruit, things like that. Lunch and dinner - a sandwich on whole wheat or whole grain with tomato, spinach or lettuce, a few slices of avocado, and maybe your choice of lean meat or just leave it. Maybe with some fruit on the side. a cup of whole wheat pasta or quinoa with marinara sauce, spinach or kale, diced tomato if not already in sauce, and your choice of protein whether that be beans on the side, shred some chicken in your pasta, or a lean ground meat like turkey or vegetarian ground ‘meat’. You could do a lot with squash. As said in previous asks… slice it length wise and add some veggies inside or slice it width wise and mix it up with some veggies. As far as snacks go, fruit always works, veggies and hummus, a small handful of trail mix, air popped pop corn. Buy it plain and if you want butter and/or salt, add a tiny but of sea salt and use a small bit of Earth Balance natural spreads. I hope this was at least of a little help. read more..

I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about how I changed my life and recovered from depression, here is my answer:I live by 5 simple rules; they helped me change my life, no doctors, no pills and no one but myself!Changing your life can seem an incredibly tough and complicated thing, especially if you’ve failed a great number of times (like I did).
1. Accept CHANGE. Allow yourself to let go of the past to make room for new things to come into your life, meet new people, travel.2. Be BOLD. Stop putting your life on hold, set new goals and reach them! 3. Start to EXERCISE. No explanation needed, it will make you feel better and happier.4. Eat HEALTHY. Food can make you happy, food can make you sad. Eat less processed food, try to eat more vegan, vegetarian food,try raw food, eat more veggies and fruit. Believe it or not it will make you feel better!5. LOVE YOURSELF. You can do all stuff I wrote, but if you don’t appreciate yourself nothing will make you feel better! You can say that last ‘rule’ is the most important way to live your life!* I don’t say this is the best way, but it helped me to overcome depression and start with my weight loss journey. read more..
More than $1 billion has been spent over the past decade researching autism.

Try this move: Pike Walk Pushup Combo! Stand with your feet together, arms at your sides. Bend over (it's OK for your knees to be slightly bent) and place your hands or fingertips on the floor in front of you. Walk your hands forward until you are in a pushup position and do one pushup. Keeping your hands in place, walk your feet forward until they're as close to your hands as possible. That's one rep. Continue moving forward until you've done five or six pushups. Want more moves?

Nothing Is Impossible: How to Remove Lower Belly Fat: healthyisfabulous: Step 1Cut back on your bad eating habits. Give up the fried foods, processed meats, refined baked goods and sweets. Eat nothing but fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, lean meats, fish, whole grains, beans and low-fat dairy products. Keep your portion sizes under control as well.Step 2Partake in cardiovascular training to burn the fat in your lower belly, as well as the rest of your body. Do any type of cardio that causes you to sweat and raises your heart rate, such as running, spinning, inline skating, stair climbing, elliptical training and power walking. Aim for 45 to 60 minutes of cardio, three days a week on nonconsecutive days.Step 3Lift weights to build metabolically active muscle mass. Do exercises that work all your major muscle groups: bench presses, shoulder presses, back rows, triceps extensions, biceps curls and squats. Perform 10 to 12 reps, three or four sets and work out three days a week on the opposing days of your cardio.Step 4Lie flat on your back to do flutter kicks. Straighten both legs and lift them 6 inches off the floor. This is your starting point. Leave your right leg where it is and raise your left leg 2 to 3 feet higher. Lower your left leg as you simultaneously lift your right leg. Alternate back and forth in a steady motion for 15 to 20 repetitions. Place your hands under your butt if you feel stress on your lower back.Step 5Execute a set of mountain climbers to work your lower abs and burn calories. Align your body in a racing position with your hands shoulder-width apart on the floor and feet in a staggered stance. Keep your hips low as you quickly shift your feet back and forth on the floor as if you were running in place. Alternate each leg forward until you’ve done 15 to 20 reps with each leg.Step 6Perform knee tucks on a stability ball. Place your hands shoulder-width apart on the floor, place your lower shins together on the ball and straighten your arms. Lift your hips up to get your body into a push-up position and roll the ball toward your face as you tuck your knees into your chest. Hold for a second, then roll the ball back out; repeat 15 to 20 times. Tips * Perform three to four sets of your ab exercises and workout after your cardio sessions. read more..

I like to practice in the morning because of the atmosphere and it helps wake me up and feel good early on, but you can practice in the morning, mid-day, or evening if you’d like.. it doesn’t matter. I think that would be great to do! You could also do some relaxing, deep stretching yoga after your running and workouts to help stretch your muscles out instead of just basic stretching. That’s what I like to do as well. And thank you! (: I like yours as well. read more..
