Where are you? #31

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Sunday, February 27, 2011, In : Lies, Lier, Truths 

Where are you Now? #31

 It is always difficult to measure our  own progress.We really do not want to be truthful with ourselves.
Or maybe we are not good at it either!

Either way it will cost Us, because of it.


Facing the music as they say is not always a pretty sight!
But one thing is clear, you do not have to remember any lie!
That part is easier.
So how do you manage to be True and still not hurt so Bad!?
Here are my suggestions:
Tears (healthy release of our emotions)

Spring is forever eternal. Who said that? I don't remember , do any of you? If so please blog back and tell me too!

For now we will just know that it does. Otherwise how would we all get through such a very long Winter.
I start thinking of Spring in January, when I get my first glimpse of my seed catalogs,the Robins coming back,
the birds in the trees making more noise, or any temperature above 10' degrees!

Then there is the first Spring flower, Johnny Jump Up's... They are the...

Why?

Because 11 years ago I lost my husband to Pancreatic Cancer!
It is a terrible,painful, disease, incurable, and usually slow-wasting.
I never knew what hit Me or Us until we got the news that  day back in February of 1997.

We all just hated that, and told our Mommy so. But she kept on doing it every time she seen us.

Then as we got older that changed to a Big Hug, and a sloppy kiss on the cheeks.
I think I liked the pinching better!

Then when we were young adults she totally switched things up and just took our hands and squeezed them a little.

Weight Control or maintenance as the experts like to call it.

Maintenance  is  really a complex word, and it has a few strings attached to it!
Let me explain by giving you a few examples.
  • Stress
  • Exercise
  • Animals
  • De stress
In order to maintain anything you have to deal with the above examples.
How do you do that, let's break them down into simpler terms.

Valentine's Day is right around the corner, what can we do to make it a Healthier Day?
  1. Does Falling in Love even for awhile really make our endorphins go crazy?
  2. Can we overeat because of it?
I have some answers for the above questions.
Speaking from my  personal experiences only I can tell you it is Yes for both.

What is the secret to loosing weight? how am I going to shed these pounds before whatever event?

These are all questions I think the Universe asks themselves.

The simple answer as I see it is food portions sizes, combinations of foods, and No Processed foods.

Of course if you absolutely have to have something, because those Cravings are worse than giving birth pains, then have Just one Bite.

Following the Miss Potters story book, this Little Piggy, I am sure she did not have in mind how we as a Nation have gotten this way.

Why TV and ads in our papers will not rest till we all have weight problems or diseases from our weight problems.

How can we as a Nation and a prosperous country tell them No-MORE!

I think we need to solicit the help of our congress, our legislators, our pet dogs!

Super-Size me is No longer in McDonald's commercials advertising.

Taco-Bell's is now pushing veggie taco's 

Arby's is back to pushing the BBQ everything hamburger

Domino's is limiting you to 256 pizza's deliveries.

Every commercial on TV is Food Gluttony.

We just don't stand a chance, we are consistently bombarded with it 24/7

Firming The Batwings!

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Wednesday, February 2, 2011, In : Exercise Tip! 

Hello everyone:

As a person who will try almost anything to keep looking modestly good, I found a simple exercise that works on that problem area we so nicely call "The Batwing " skin under the forearms. As we loose weight this skin losses it's elasticity and it swings or spreads like a Bat's Wing's, hence the name it has so doubly received, Batwings!

The little Secret Remedy.... is using a elastic Rubber band exercise rope. You can get them @ any Sports equipment department in almost an...

We all like to reward ourselves for a job Well-Done, it is like someone else patting Us on the back.
It is that same feeling except with a price tag attached to it.
So that is why I said with moderation, because going overboar...

Goal Setting #13

We are refueling ourselves with only positive feedback. What does that mean Doctor says the patient.
Well replies the Doctor, it means what makes you want to do something in the first place!?
The patient sits there for a minute and looks a bit blank and then starts to tell him what motivates her each and every day.
Here is what she said:
  • Avoiding future health problems
  • Want to exercise often and comfortably
  • Be there for my children
  • playing with my grandchildren
  • traveling
  • Lon...

'Falling in Love" #12

Valentine's Day is right around the corner, what can we do to make it a Healthier Day?
  1. Does Falling in Love even for awhile really make our endorphins go crazy?
  2. Can we overeat because of it?
I have some answers for the above questions.
Speaking from my  personal experiences only I can tell you it is Yes for both.
The whys are different for each one of us.
For me it is like a feeling of Euphoria, I can't wait too see him again, smell his cologne, look in his eyes and...

Just a Bite #8

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Saturday, February 5, 2011, In : Reshaping our bodies 

What is the secret to loosing weight? how am I going to shed these pounds before whatever event?

These are all questions I think the Universe asks themselves.

The simple answer as I see it is food portions sizes, combinations of foods, and No Processed foods.

Of course if you absolutely have to have something, because those Cravings are worse than giving birth pains, then have Just one Bite.

Remember when the Big thing was taking a one bite of something and spitting it out? it wasn't for the fo...

Little Piggy#6

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Friday, February 4, 2011, In : Pitch the Dish 

Following the Miss Potters story book, this Little Piggy, I am sure she did not have in mind how we as a Nation have gotten this way.

Why TV and ads in our papers will not rest till we all have weight problems or diseases from our weight problems.

How can we as a Nation and a prosperous country tell them No-MORE!

I think we need to solicit the help of our congress, our legislators, our pet dogs!

I mean it, my dog Travis is the best Weight Watcher I own. He is a very active Border -Collie Mix Bre...

Biggest loser#5

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Friday, February 4, 2011, In : No Fridge Piggies 

We all hear the TV hype about how we all need to slim down to a reasonable size. 

Super-Size me is No longer in McDonald's commercials advertising.

Taco-Bell's is now pushing veggie taco's 

Arby's is back to pushing the BBQ everything hamburger

Domino's is limiting you to 256 pizza's deliveries.

Every commercial on TV is Food Gluttony.

We just don't stand a chance, we are consistently bombarded with it 24/7

So here is my common sense approach to the obvious over-eating they are forcing Us to watch....

Firming The Batwings!

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Wednesday, February 2, 2011, In : Exercise Tip! 

Hello everyone:

As a person who will try almost anything to keep looking modestly good, I found a simple exercise that works on that problem area we so nicely call "The Batwing " skin under the forearms. As we loose weight this skin losses it's elasticity and it swings or spreads like a Bat's Wing's, hence the name it has so doubly received, Batwings!

The little Secret Remedy.... is using a elastic Rubber band exercise rope. You can get them @ any Sports equipment department in almost an...
