I’m In for 10!

January is traditionally the month to start a new weight loss program.  We all over-ate during the holidays.  You know the drill, Halloween candy and Fall Festivals start the slide to over-eating and it continues IMG_2624 webthrough November with Thanksgiving with all that pie, stuffing, dressing, candied-who-knows-what and gravy over everything!  December is filled with every excuse in the book to have a get together.  From those office parties, charity events, family reunions, weddings, anniversary parties, graduations, Chanukah,  Christmas and so on, food is the center of our attention for about 3 months.  And does it ever show by New Year’s Day.  Sigh….

So here we are again, looking at that same 10 pounds we looked at last year, sitting on our butts and bellies.  Our clothes are tight, we feel sluggish and the TV is loaded with commercials for every sort of weight loss miracle. ” Just do this for 10 minutes a day and you will look like some thin, over-developed blonde in a smaller than need swim suit.”   Not going to happen, but we can delude ourselves that there is really a magic, miracle pill that will make all this extra fat go away with no effort.

Benefits of Weight Loss     There are many reasons to get rid of those pounds. Some are pure vanity, we want to look our best.  Spring Break is coming soon and the beaches of FL need our slim bodies to soak up some sun for a week.  Our heart would appreciate not having to support such a large mass of fat, so our blood pressure would drop.  Our cholesterol would improve, the risk of diabetes would lower and we would sleep better.  None of those is bad!  The long term benefits of weight loss has been studied by many, even the CDC published studies showing the positive effect of weight loss on chronic diseases.  I don’t like to be ill, how about you?

Well this year I am taking charge early to rid myself of those extra pounds and maybe a few more of their friends by ImInfor10_button_3x3_600participating in Shaklee’s I’m in for 10!  Challenge”.    The goal is for the company to set a record by losing 40,000 in 3 months.  So Shaklee is inviting folks like me and you to sign-up, get moving, get motivated, plug into their program this 1st Quarter and together we can get rid of those pesky pounds.  For more information visit my personal Shaklee siteJoin me as part of my team to lose the weight and let’s set the record!  Elise  Elise@EliseHearn.com

Tips for Immune System Support

Cold and Flu Season is here again!  Keeping healthy during the Winter and early Spring makes for a happier Holiday Season and start to the New Year.  Since your immune system is complicated, there are many components to keeping healthy.

One part is Lifestyle.  If you smoke, are stressed, eat the wrong kinds of foods, drink too many Sodas,  don’t get enough sleep and so on, your immune system can be compromised.  Make a few simple changes over the course of a month or so. I know, I know, change is not fun, but then neither is the Flu!  So you decide:  Make a few changes or get sick.  The choice is yours.  I choose to be healthy!

Start with getting enough sleep.  Go to bed a bit earlier.  Turn off the TV!  In fact, don’t even have a TV in the bedroom.  Replace your pillow with one that properly supports your head and neck.  Keep the room at a comfortable temperature for sleep.  I don’t like to be too warm when I sleep, but you might like a warmer room, so adjust the temperature to your needs.  Get those 8 hours each night and your body will thank you!

Now look at your diet. Keep your weight at it’s optimum number. According to a blog post by Dr. Jamie McManus, “Supporting your immune system with great nutrition is one of the best ways to get a leg up in keeping you well.”

Dr. McManus suggests  “the first place to start is to ensure your body is getting enough protein, carbohydrates, and healthy fats. Protein is especially important and essential for the health of the immune system. Healthy fats (EPA and DHA) are important to the immune system as well.”
Look for foods withMushrooms the nutrients your body needs to stay strong such as vitamin C, vitamin A, antioxidants, zinc and magnesium.

For an extra boost, remember foods have medicinal properties!  So include these often in your diet and enjoy the goodness of taste and immune system support.  Here is Dr. McManus’ list of medicinal foods:

1.  Mushrooms (shiitake, matsutake, and others) have a long history of helping support the immune system, especially the reishi mushroom in traditional Chinese medicine. Modern science has shown that mushrooms contain substances (such as beta-glucans and others) that can enhance immune system function.
2.  Garlic and onions not only taste great but research suggests they have the ability to modulate immune function.
3.  Herbs such as turmeric, ginger, and others have long been used as spices and to preserve foods; these herbs also have benefits for our immune system.Vitalized_Immunity

Of course I use several products from Shaklee that target the immune system components.  I take Shaklee’s Vitalizer each day which is filled with antioxidants, vitamin C, vitamin A and so much more.  In addition, I add NutriFeron each day and Vitalized Immunity.  I keep the good fats high such as EPA and DHA found in the OmegaGuard and Vitalizer.   Visit my Shaklee site for more immune system products.

Staying healthy year round is possible when you make smart choices for your good health!  Don’t wait till you start feeling bad, start now and enjoy a healthy Holiday Season and New Year!
