NEXT WEEK'S ADDED CHALLENGE: 
 only fruit or veggie snacks

"Eating healthy snacks is a simple method for ensuring that your body gets the nutrients and energy it  needs throughout the day. If you're on a weight management program, maintaining a regular snack time routine can actually help you stick to your diet, as long as you eat in moderation and choose healthy foods. Snacking is also important for athletes who need to stay in condition for competition, and for children who are still growing.

Healthy Eating Defined

It is important to know how to eat healthy. You should try to get three regular meals per day, in the morning, afternoon and evening, as the Center for Young Women's Health recommends. Ideally, snacks should not substitute for regular, full meals; you should snack when you need extra energy or feel hungry, but don't overeat. Try to eat foods from all the food groups -- fruits, vegetables, proteins, grains, healthy fats and dairy -- in order to get the maximum benefit.

Snacking for Athletics

Athletes and people who engage in regular physical exercise need more energy than those who have a sedentary lifestyle, as Drugs.com notes. However, a busy schedule may make it difficult to get these extra calories and nutrients through proper mealtimes. Healthy snacks allow you to make up the difference without taking too much time for preparation and eating. Snacking before exercise can also give you an energy boost to aid your performance, while having a snack after exertion helps prevent overeating during mealtime. In fact, eating an apple can give you an energy boost similar to coffee or energy drinks but without the harmful drugs and chemicals or the inevitable crash, as well as providing so many nutrients such as 12% of your daily recommended intake of fiber, 10% of your daily recommended intake of vitamin C, and trace amounts of minerals such as calcium, potassium, and manganese. You can't get that in a cup of coffee!

Children's Physical Development

During adolescence, children's bodies start developing rapidly. This process takes a lot of energy, and therefore often leaves kids feeling hungry, KidsHealth explains. Healthy snacking helps meet children's elevated nutritional requirements while ensuring that they don't gain excessive amounts of weight or consume foods that contain unhealthy amounts of sodium, carbohydrates and fats. This is especially important for teenagers, who may tend to opt for unhealthy, nutrient-poor junk foods for their snacks and meals.

Weight Management

Contrary to popular belief, snacking does not destroy diets, as long as it is properly planned. In reality, healthy snacking helps prevent binge eating, MayoClinic.com notes. When your hunger is momentarily alleviated, you will be less likely to overindulge. But it all depends on your choice of snack food. The best options are foods that make you feel full, provide you with nutrients, while still leaving your appetite for a proper meal still intact.

Healthy Snack Choices

There are several foods to choose from if you're looking for a healthy snack. In general, the fresher and less processed the food, the better. Fruits and vegetables are among the most popular, since they contain lots of nutrients with little to no fat and are still very filling. Nuts and seeds, on the other hand, have high amounts of amounts of both protein and healthy monounsaturated fat. However, their high calorie content means they should be eaten in moderation."

5 Ways Alcohol Hinders Fat Loss

1. ALCOHOL SUPPLIES ALMOST TWICE AS MANY CALORIES AS PROTEIN & CARBOHYDRATES

At seven calories per gram, alcohol supplies almost twice as many as protein and carbohydrates. In fact, alcohol has only two fewer calories than fat, which has nine per gram. It must also be remembered that the calories in alcohol lack the nutrients beneficial for a healthy metabolism and will therefore hasten fat storage. The calories found in the average alcoholic drink are quite concentrated compared to many foods, and this actually causes one to inadvertently take in many more calories than would otherwise be consumed. Alcohol is quite deceptive in that it passes through the system rapidly, often before the drinker is aware of the number of drinks they have had. Alcoholic drinks also contain calories from other sources, which add to overall caloric intake. Certain cocktails, for example, contain fats. Wine and beer both have high carbohydrate content. Although the affects these various calorie types have on the body are different - carbohydrates release insulin, which can hasten fat storage, while fats will be stored directly in the fat cells - the overall result is added body fat. An example of how many calories can be easily consumed can be seen with a small glass of wine: a 5-ounce glass of wine will typically contain 110 calories, 91 of which come from the alcohol itself (13 grams), with the remaining five grams coming from carbohydrates. 

2. ALCOHOL DAMAGEs THE STOMACH, KIDNEYS, AND LIVER

Given alcohol is a by-product of yeast digestion; it has an irritating effect on the lining of the stomach and gradually weakens the kidneys and liver, leading to serious health problems - even death in certain instances. Any weakening of the stomach will lessen the rate and efficiency at which food is digested, which ultimately interferes with a healthy metabolism and the weight loss process. The liver - which processes toxins and breaks down fats for fuel - is crucial when it comes to maintaining a healthy body composition. Alcohol is at its most destructive during the liver's detoxification process.

3. ALCOHOL LOOSENS THE INHIBITIONS

While drinking, people usually will not stop to consider the impact alcohol is having on their bodies; such is alcohol's affect on loosening the inhibitions. The result of this relaxed thinking could mean more calories consumed and extra body fat gains. Those drinking might also eat more of the wrong kinds of food, without thinking of the consequences. Alcohol tends to have an appetite stimulating effect as it provides little in the way of nutrition, leaving a craving for other foods at the time of consumption. Add this to the fact that fatty and salty foods tend to accompany most occasions featuring alcohol (as well as alcohol actually stimulating one's appetite for these kinds of foods), and the general loosening of resolve that goes with an inebriated mindset, and you have a recipe for excess fat gain. Alcohol has also been shown to affect motivation, making a healthy diet harder to stay on while it is being used.

4. ALCOHOL LOWERS TESTOSTERONE

Testosterone, which has a powerful fat loss effect, is reduced whenever alcohol is consumed, thus halting its full potential as a fat burner. Also, testosterone as an anabolic hormone, contributes to gains in lean muscle mass. Lowered testosterone means fewer muscle gains, and less muscle means a lowered metabolic rate. A lower metabolic rate will make the job of losing fat all the more harder. This is what governs the way we use energy. Those with a higher metabolic rate will burn more calories at rest. By interfering with testosterone production, alcohol indirectly causes the body to lower its metabolic rate (and thus the rate at which it uses energy) and directly prohibits testosterone from exerting its powerful fat-burning effects. 

5. ALCOHOL INCREASES APPETITE

Touched on briefly in point three, alcohol can increase appetite, making the combination of alcohol and a fattening meal all the more worse. A Canadian study showed that alcohol consumed before a meal increased caloric intake to a far greater extent than did a carbohydrate drink. Also, researchers from Denmark's Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University showed that if a group of men were given a meal and allowed to eat as much as they wanted, alcohol, rather than a soft drink, would increase the amount of food consumed.

THIS WEEK'S ADDED CHALLENGE: drink half of your body weight
 in ounces of water every day


Can drinking water help you lose weight?

Our bodies are about 70% water, yet so many of us deprive our bodies of this readily available, free drink. By filling up your body's "tank" with water every day, you will definitely  begin to lose weight and feel better. If you have ever wondered, "Does drinking water help you lose weight?".........

1. When you drink water, you will feel less hungry

"Various research shows that if you drink 2 cups of water 30 minutes before a meal then you will consume 75 calories less on average during that meal. That full-feeling, helping you to shave off 75 calories a meal, may not sound like anything significant to you, but if you ate 75 calories less for 2 meals a day, then in one day that is 150 calories less, and in one year that is that is 52,800 calories less. Divide that by 3,500 (the number of calories to lose 1 pound) and you've got yourself a 15 lb. weight loss in one year!"

2. When you drink water, your body burns more stored fat

"When you are trying to lose weight the parts of your body that you're focused on probably are not your kidneys and liver, but these parts are vital to weight loss. So a quick bio lesson is in order. The job of your kidneys is to eliminate waste. One job of your liver is to metabolize stored fat into usable energy. If your kidneys don't get enough water to do their job (eliminate waste), then they "ask" the liver to help out. The liver dutifully says, "yes," but it is your body that suffers. You see, if the liver is doing the work of the kidneys then it has less resources to do its own job well - and remember, its job is to burn fat. So you can help your liver do its job better, by helping your kidneys out, by drinking more water."

3. When you drink water, you will have more energy

"Even the slightest bit of dehydration can leave you feeling sluggish and that's not a good thing if you are trying to lose weight. Look back at the bio lesson on the liver. Recall that one job of your liver is to burn fat into usable energy. You do not want to be lacking in usable energy if you want to lose weight. Losing weight involves activity, moving, exercise, and if you are sluggish what is the first thing you do - probably sit on the couch in front of the television instead of going for a brisk walk or run. Being sluggish just weighs you down (pun intended). But you can turn it around by filling up with water, feeling more energetic, and becoming more active."

4. When you drink water, you are able to build more muscle

"Anyone who has ever been interested in weight loss probably knows that muscles burn more calories at rest than fat. So the more muscle you have, the more fat your body burns even when it's at rest. Think of it this way, blood plasma is 90% water and so water is like an ever-flowing stream in your body that carries oxygen and nutrients to your muscles, organs and entire body. This water transportation system, delivering nourishment, is not only vital to keeping your muscles hydrated so they contract, function, and build up optimally, but necessary for your entire body to have an overall feeling of well-being."

5. When you drink water, your metabolism increases

"When you think of metabolism, think of fat-burning. If you could burn fat faster and more efficiently then you could lose more weight. German researchers once conducted a study where they measured the participants' resting metabolism before and after they drank about two cups of water. The results showed that after 10 minutes their rates of metabolism began to pick up, after 40 minutes their metabolic rates' were 30% greater, and they remained at this faster rate for at least an hour. Simply put, increased metabolism burns more calories and when you are losing weight calorie burning is a critical piece of the equation."

NEXT WEEK'S ADDED CHALLENGE: no soda

"We all know that drinking soda isn't good for us. We know that it would be better for our health if instead we drank [insert pretty much any other beverage choice here]. But there's just something about soda that keeps drawing us back. Whether you call it "soda," "pop," "soda pop," "Coke," or something else entirely, it's a good idea to stop drinking it once and for all. Here's why:

Health Reasons to Stop Drinking Soda

Here are just a few of the scientifically researched reasons to kick the habit.

1. Soda increases your blood pressure.
A March 2011 study links soda consumption to higher blood pressure.
2. Soda destroys your teeth.
In case your dentist hadn't told you, between the sugar and the acidity, pop is terrible for your teeth. It erodes your tooth enamel!
3. It contains an ingredient banned in over 100 countries.
About 10% of soda flavors contain BVO, or brominated vegetable oil, which is banned by the World Health organization and 100 countries.
4. It makes you fat.
Calories from drinks including soda make up over 20% of the total daily calories consumed by Americans, according to a 2004 article in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine (as cited by WebMD).
5. It may lead to diabetes.
Non-diet soft drinks contribute to the onset of type 2 diabetes. Even if you drink diet, you may not be in the clear (see the study published by the American Heart Association discussed below).
6. It may lead to heart disease. 
According to a study published by the American Heart Association, "Drinking as little as one can of soda a day — regular or diet — is associated with a 48% increased risk of metabolic syndrome, a key  predecessor of heart disease and diabetes."
7. Soda consumption is linked to osteoporosis.
Soda drinking has been associated with lower bone mineral density in women and children. The phosphorus content of colas triggers calcium loss leading to osteoporosis.
8. Drinking cola can increase your risk of kidney stones.
A study published in Epidemiology found that "Drinking 2 or more colas per day was associated with increased risk of chronic kidney disease."
9. Soda can cause heartburn. 
It shouldn't surprise you that highly acidic sodas can lead to heartburn.
10. It's linked with liver problems.
A study found that people with liver problems are also more likely to drink soda.
11. Your soda likely either contains aspartame or high fructose corn syrup.
If you drink diet soda, your pop has some sort of artificial sweetener. If you drink full-calorie soda, chances are it has high fructose corn syrup. There are long debates about these ingredients and studies are not entirely conclusive, but both ingredients are artificial and are likely not good for you.

Financial Reasons to Stop Drinking Soda

If saving money motivates you to kick a bad habit, here are the top three financial reasons to quit drinking soda.

12. The out of pocket cost of drinking pop adds up.
The average American drinks 216 liters (that's 7304 ounces, or about 365 20-ounce bottles) a year. If you purchased your soda only at a vending machine, that's about $550/ year. If, instead, you put this into a retirement account for 30 years at a 7% interest rate compounded annually, you'd have about $60,000. Even if you buy your soda at the grocery store for 40 cents a can, that's still $243 per year and over $26,000 over 30 years.
13. You'll make poorer financial decisions by drinking diet soda.
A research study looking at decision making after drinking soda found that "The sugar-free soda drinkers were more likely to choose the immediate reward, even though it was less money and not the best overall decision. "
14. The long term health consequences lead to high medical expenses.
I've listed numerous health reasons to not drink soda pop below — if you have even one of these health problems because of (or it's exacerbated by) drinking soda, your long-term medical costs will skyrocket."

 Don't count yourselves out my soda lovin' Mamas! You can do this and you will get HUGE rewards by making this change! Just one soda a day equals 20 lbs of fat a year!.....And, I heard the nutritionist for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders tell them that carbonation causes cellulite!! AHHH!! I am not saying that is true....but just the thought is reason enough for me right there!! The less soda you drink, the less you will crave it. I can attest to that!

90 DAY CHALLENGE XIII: DAY 2

no caffeine


Caffeine is a drug stimulant found in coffee, tea, soft drinks, energy drinks, dietary supplements and certain foods. Though caffeine may pose some benefits, such as mental sharpness and increased energy, it can also pose dangerous risks. People respond differently to caffeine, so risk for such dangers varies. Excessive caffeine consumption heightens a person's risk for harmful effects.
Reduced Bone Strength
Excessive caffeine intake may cause the body to rid itself of calcium--a nutrient vital in supporting bone strength. People at risk for osteoporosis, a condition characterized by brittle bones, may exhibit higher risk for osteoporosis and bone fractures if they consume caffeine regularly. According to research published in the Journal of Bones and Mineral Research in Dec. 2009, elderly women are at highest risk for caffeine-related bone problems. Elderly women who lack calcium in their diet and consume caffeine frequently exhibit greater instances of osteoporosis and bone fractures than women deficient in calcium who do not consume caffeine.
Increased Blood Pressure
Increased blood pressure often occurs when people have blockage in their arteries, adhere to diets high in saturated fats, exercise too little or are genetically predisposed to high blood pressure. Caffeine intake can also trigger blood pressure spikes. According to Mayo Clinic hypertension specialist, Sheldon G. Sheps, M.D., the amount of caffeine found in two to three cups of coffee can raise a person's systolic pressure (the top number in a blood pressure reading) 3 to 14 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) and diastolic pressure (the bottom number) 4 to 13 mm Hg. Such increases prove particularly dangerous for people with high blood pressure or heart-related diseases. In general, people who consume caffeine regularly or in excessive amounts may exhibit higher blood pressure than people who do not. Caffeine found in energy drinks and dietary supplements is often accompanied by additional stimulants, such as the herbs guarana and ginseng. These herbs exacerbate blood pressure risks.
Addiction
Caffeine may lead to physical dependence. In an interview with U.S. News and World Report, professor Roland Griffiths, of Johns Hopkins School of Medicine explained that though people are hesitant to consider caffeine addiction a drug addiction, the basic mechanisms by which people become dependent upon caffeine are similar to classic drug addiction. As with any addiction, withdrawal symptoms arise when those addicted to caffeine reduce or eliminate caffeine from their lifestyle. People who routinely drink coffee in the morning may experience withdrawal symptoms if their coffee is delayed or missed. Symptoms of caffeine withdrawal include headache, lethargy, foggy thinking, depressed or irritable mood and even nausea or vomiting. Excessive or frequent caffeine intake pose greatest risk for addiction. 
Emotional Effects
Excessive caffeine intake can disturb a person's moods and emotional health. According to research published in the journal Drug Alcohol Dependency in September 2008, nervousness, restlessness and anxiety are common consequences of caffeine toxicity. People may have difficulty sitting still and may develop heightened paranoia, jealousy and other worrisome emotions. Once the stimulant effects of caffeine wear off, the post-caffeine "crash," or drop in mood and energy, may pose added emotional side effects. People with depression, anxiety and other psychological disorders may hold higher risk for adverse emotional effects.
Insomnia
Excessive caffeine consumption may cause insomnia, which is a common sleep disorder characterized by difficulty falling to sleep, remaining asleep or having nonrefreshing sleep for at least four consecutive weeks. According to the National Sleep Foundation, seven out of 10 people who exhibit the highest caffeine intake have insomnia. The more caffeine a person consumes, the more likely he is to develop insomnia. Insomnia causes daytime sleepiness and often leads to further caffeine consumption, as a person struggles with daytime wakefulness. Caffeine-induced insomnia may also cause mental fogginess and reduced cognitive abilities. If left untreated, insomnia may increase a person's risk for weight gain, obesity, mood swings, dependency on sleeping pills, reduced immune system function and automobile accidents.
Physical Effects
Caffeine toxicity also affects a person's physical well-being. According to the Mayo Clinic, excessive caffeine drinkers may develop nausea and additional digestive symptoms. Caffeine in any amount is known to increase a person's heart rate and blood pressure; over-consumption of caffeine may have dramatic negative effects. People with heart-related health conditions, such as hypertension, or high blood pressure, may have increased risk for heart attack. Heart palpitations and arrhythmias, which are irregular heartbeats, have also been reported. Muscle tremors, extreme shakiness and headaches may also occur. When shakiness is severe or coupled with intense irritability, risk for accidents and injuries increase.



If those aren't enough reasons, I don't know what is!? Challenge yourself. I know this will be hard for some of you but you have nothing to lose by trying it for 90 days....only insight and health to gain. Start on Monday, if you have to have coffee, go buy some decaf. Get ready, here we go!! :)

Monday 01.04.16


Begins TODAY!

For 90 Days we will not miss a WOD,
we will eat clean,
we will have a shake a day,
and we will see how far we can take our bodies in 90 days.



For time:

Run 5K.


Post time to comments.







90 DAY CHALLENGE XIII
Day: 1

Here we go Challenge Mamas... 
For the next 90 days we will be 
pushing ourselves harder, 
eating healthier,
 getting tighter and harder,
 and getting fit so we can be 
strongerhealthier 
and HOT!

This is how we will do it:
1. We will do the WOD Monday through Friday and push hard to go faster and lift heavier. We will not cut corners. We will not quit. We will not substitute (unless absolutely necessary). We will not miss a WOD. We will kill it and we will progress our bodies to the ultimate goal. If you are trying to lose more than 10 lbs, you will add a 1 mile run (or some other sort of cardio) after any WOD not involving a run.

2. We will drink the Vi-shakes everyday. If you are trying to lose more than 20 lbs, you should replace 2 meals a day with a Vi-shake and have a balanced 3rd meal. If you are trying to lose less than 20 lbs or want to get rid of that last layer of pudge, you should replace 1 meal a day (I do lunch) with a Vi-shake with an optional 2nd shake post-workout for optimum muscle growth and health. If you are underweight and are trying to only build muscle or if you are nursing and should not cut calories, you will add a Vi-shake to your post-workout routine or add 2 Vi-shakes, 1 before the WOD and 1 after for maximum results. 

3. Now for the added challenge: each week I will challenge you to add or remove one thing from your diet or lifestyle that is not benefiting your health or progression. Once the week is over, you will continue with that challenge for the duration of the 90 days, adding something new each week. I will announce every Friday what the next weeks added challenge will be. 

4. Track your progress and results. Today ONLY I want you to weigh yourself, take your before picture in a sports bra and shorts or bikini (front, back and side), and measure your chest, waist, hips, biceps, and thighs. This information is for you only. Keep it safe somewhere. Post your times on hiitmamas.com after every WOD as well as how you are feeling, changes you are noticing, etc. Don't weigh yourself again until the 90 days is over, taking into account that muscle is heavier than fat and remeasure. Our improved times, measurements, and how our after pictures look will be the biggest indicator.
