Weight Loss portion Control salad dressing

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

I’m Certified Health Coach Natalie Jo and our our program it’s very important to be very accurate with servings of condiments.  Check this out, a super simple way to measure out a serving of salad dressing each and every time.

Dispense one serving at a time. Condiments are frequently over used adding empty
calories to foods and leaving pools of uneaten dressing at each meal. The
Healthy Steps Portion Lid measures and dispenses one serving of dressing so you
can be confident in your portion sizes and yourself. BPA-free. Fits most store
bought condiment bottles, use with: Salad dressing, Mayonnaise, Ketchup, BBQ
sauce and more. How to use: Replace existing condiment lid with the Portion Lid.
Turn Portion Lid to condiment type indicator on lid. Squeeze bottle to fill
single serving chamber. Open Portion Lid and pull chamber edges toward bottom of
bottle to dispense. Remove Portion Lid when bottle is empty, wash before reuse.
Top rack dishwasher safe.

 

 Let me know what you think.  Do you have an easy way to make sure you are getting the correct amount of dressing?  Please share with a comment below.

Trouble getting in enough water for weight loss?

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

I’m a health coach Natalie Jo and water is very important on this program.  You need a minium of 64 oz per day but half your body weight is even better. Many of my clients tell me they have trouble getting it all in.  They lose track or are too busy. Look what I just found.

The Sportline HydraCoach Intelligent Water Bottle is the world’s first
interactive water bottle that thinks while you drink! It calculates your
personal hydration needs, tracks your real-time fluid consumption, paces you
throughout the day and motivates you to achieve and maintain optimal hydration.
Doctors, Nutritionists and Fitness Trainers all recommend that we drink more
water yet there has never been a device to help individuals adhere to the
expert’s recommendations. The HydraCoach is a breakthrough in personal
hydration monitoring.

How cool is that? A water coach that motivates you to stay hydrated and tracks your progress. Check it out read the reviews and let me know what you think.

Let me know your tips and trick that help you remember to get in all your water.

Vacation Exercise Me and My FitBit

Monday, August 20th, 2012

We ended each day with the sunset on top of Brockway MT.

 

I just got back from 1 week camping in Copper Harbor on the Keweenaw Peninsula in the UP of MI. I never hiked so much in my entire life. 80 lbs ago I would have never been able to do it.  My husband goes to CO every Sept to hike the 14’s but I stay home. So he is the expert.

On this trip I had my fitbit on everyday and we both did the same hikes just the two of us.  Most days we never saw another hiker.  We hiked different trails everyday. It’s a great place for hiking and biking.

Here are my totals for sun Aug 11th -19th

107,420 steps

554 floors up

47.78 miles

Plus 12 miles of bike riding the fitbit doesn’t add that in but I have a computer on the bike.

 

For some reason I thought the hiking was easier then the bike riding maybe because of the hills or wind.

My muscles or feet never hurt and each morning we got up and found new trails. We picked up a great book that helped us to locate each trail and yes we still did get lost some days but that made it exciting.

I’m not one to have fun exercising and some days the Mountains were no fun but I enjoy taking photos along the way. I’m very proud that I could do it am I’m thankful for the life I have now at goal over 2 1/2 years.

Here we hiked up a cliff to an old railroad bridge to get a good shot of the waterfall.

Here we biked to the beginning of HWY 41 where it starts In Copper Harbor UP MI and you can follow it 1990 miles all the way to the other end in Miami FL.

I loved it up there no cell reception unless you were on top of the MT. The internet reminded me of the good old days when you were kept waiting for every page to load.

I lost 80 lbs with THIS PROGRAM and have kept it off for over two years

I’m Coach NatalieJo and I want to help you too!

If this is not the first time you have visited my site you may notice I made some changes.  Because of rule changes Health Coaches private sites must now be unbranded. No mention of the program names can be used.  So this is now a generic site.  Many of my past posts and audios are now only avaliable for my personal clients in the For My Client Only tab. They would have been too hard to remove all the trade names. Don’t leave just yet.

You can still gather a wealth of information from my posts and you can always contact me if you are interested in THIS PROGRAM. My clients will have full password protected access to all my resources that I have posted over the past 3 years.

I’m Coach NatalieJo and I lost 80 lbs and I have kept if off for over 2 years.  Read MY Story from the tab up top.  If changing your life is something you are interested in doing.  I would love to speak with you and answer all your questions.  This program works.  It’s been around for 30 years. It’s a no brainer.  You eat every three hours and have no hunger or cravings.  You will be learning good healthy habits that will keep you on track for the rest of your life.

FitBit My New Best Friend For Exercise

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

Click the FitBit above to take you to a store to purchase it.

 

First let me say I don’t like exercise.  I lost 80 pounds and have kept it off for over two years.  That was my first journey and now I’m looking for activities I like to do to keep me in shape.

Recently I have seen a lot of talk about this new little pedometer the FitBit.  People claim it gets them moving and working harder. I saw it in the Target flyer this week so I ran out and got one last night.

My first test was wearing it to bed. It tracks your sleep don’t ask me how.  It said I woke up 5 times and I walked 46 steps. As far as I know I never stepped foot out of bed so I don’t know where the steps came from but I scored 98% on my sleep.  There is a website where you track and enter info.  You can set goals, list what you ate and it will track calories consumed and burned.

Well today just for fun I asked my husband to drive me up Rib Mountain so I could climb the look out tower and see how many flights of stairs it would track.  To my surprise it even tracked the walk up the hill to the tower how does it do that?  When I got to the top I had 18 flights of stairs.  When I got home I had an email from FitBit.  I earned my first badge.

How cool was that.  By looking at the site I found I could earn another badge for 25 flights good thing we have stairs in the house so I ran up and down them a bunch of times and I got my second badge of the day before bed.

I did real well on my climbing 250 feet up.  My total steps were only 4000 so far.  They say you should aim for 10,000 per day. I’ll have to work up to that. FitBit also has a social side where you can make friends and compare scores.  On our weight loss site they are walking across the US as a team virtually with FitBit.

So my first day using the FitBit has been a success.  I got in more stairs than I would have.  I’m having fun learning all the tools on the site and I think it will be a great tool to make my daily activity measurable and fun!

Update before I went to bed I just had to get a steps badge for 5000 steps I was only a few hundred steps away so I went walking around the house up and down stairs in circles.  Glad noone was watching and I got to 5000 steps.  Here’s my badge to prove it.

I never thought a little gadget likt this FitBit would have me walking all over the house at 11:30 pm just to get an email badge sent to me.  Who knew something as simple as that could do so much?

If you would like more info on the program I used to lose 80 lbs and keep it off for over two years you can learn more on my site I’m Coach NatalieJo

Exercise For The Weekend Playground For Adults

Monday, March 5th, 2012


Playground For Adults

Last year I discovered a new playground for adults.  It’s called an RV
show.  You start at one end of the building and climb onto and walk through each
trailer and then back down the steps and off into the next one.  It takes about
2 hours of walking to do the entire show unless you stop and start talking with
a rep.  In Wisconsin they are held indoors this time of year, so it doesn’t
matter what the weather is. We went to two big shows this year so far and hit a
smaller one on Saturday. We really are shopping for a new trailer but you don’t
have to be you can just go for the entertainment and exercise.
Then today Sunday my husband and I hit the trail with our snowshoes on.
Close to home we have a quarry trail part of the Rib Mt State Park and we spent
two hours hiking up to, then up and around the top of the quarry.  It was a
perfect sunny winter day with no wind.  The hike back down was a lot easier.  I
always do the uphill first.  That way what I remember last is the easy part. I
took a few pictures to share. I hate the word exercise I like to think of it as
a fun way to get out and take pictures.
These are all activities I would not and could not do before I lost 80 lbs.  My life is so much different now then it was before.  My husband is happy I now go on hikes and bike rides and get out more. He no longer has to go alone.
If you would like to know more about THIS PROGRAM I used to lose 80 lbs and keep it off for two years now please view my site for more information at http://www.nataliejo.tsfl.com

Note From Coach NatalieJo March 4

Thursday, March 1st, 2012
Click player or here to listen
`
This weeks note from Natalie is an audio and a blog post. I
love learning from mentors and one of my favorites is Jim Rohn.  Jim is no
longer alive but his teachings will live on forever and this is The Formula for
failure and Success.
Jim puts it simple, failure is nothing more than a few errors
in judgment repeated every day. He goes on to explain our thinking and habits
behind failing.
The formula for success is also simple it’s a few simple
disciplines practiced ever day.
THIS PROGRAM fits into this formula for success
perfectly by teaching you simple disciplines you practice ever day. The weight
loss results are almost immediate just like Jim said they would be.
Like Jim says “The real magic of new disciplines is that they
will cause is to amend our thinking.”
Now go and read the full post. Don’t just go and read it you have to take action because if you just go and read it you’re not going to be any further ahead until you do take the steps to make changes.
I wish you great success this week. Thanks bye bye.
Go and read
