Importance of a Food Journal

Are you trying to lose weight? Are you concerned that what you are eating isn't as nutritious as it should be? Have you ever thought about whether or not you are hydrating your body properly? Does your family history have issues with heart disease or diabetes?

So many questions and I am sure there are many more...

Have you ever thought about starting a food journal? A food journal is a great tool. You educate yourself about the time of day your body starts to crave food and about portion control. You can monitor how much water or fluid you are drinking. If you are concerned about food allergies a food journal will help a doctor narrow down what foods you were eating when a reaction occurred!

Start a food journal a few weeks before you begin a diet and you will have an invaluable tool that will help you achieve your diet and nutrition goals!

Fitting in Fitness!

Everyone I know is busy and getting busier all the time!
It is so hard to fit in fitness!

Number one most important point in beginning a fitness routine is to make it fun and something you enjoy! If you enjoy walking but it's too cold outside then go to the mall and walk. Most shopping malls are open to the public early for walking. If you enjoy dancing most dance studios offer ballroom dancing classes. What a great way to exercise and it's all the rage!

I have seen hundreds upon hundreds of well meaning people start a fitness routine only to quit within weeks or months. Most people forget that it took them years and years to get out of shape. When they start exercising they want immediate results.

The best way to fitness is slow and steady. Do not over do the exercise and do not over diet. When I was personal training I preferred my customers to start an exercise program and not diet for at least a couple of months. I had my customers start a food journal. Document the time you eat and what you eat. Food journals are great tools for discovering weaknesses.

Soon I will start teaching Zumba... this will be a hard under-taking for me since I was recently diagnosed with cancer! I have severe nerve damage to one leg/foot and I have to force the leg/foot to do what I want it to do! But I am determined!

More on fitness to come!

eBay Live 2006

eBay Live 2006 was shaping up to be a great event. Lots of educational panels as well as many fun parties were being planned. We were all excited to get to Vegas and meet up... But how would we find each other... how would we recognize other eBayers when we had only become friends online. We had been talking with each other for years on posting boards within the eBay online groups but many of us had never actually met.

A SUPER idea.... jeweled pink cateye sunglasses... supplied by Gary from!

Here are several of the Powerseller Chicks with our pink sunglasses... and can you guess where Gary is... he's with his HARLEY CHICKS... HAHAH!!!
