TIP #13

Sorry, I think I skipped a week. Thanksgiving was so busy. Hope you are all enjoying the holidays. Here is just an interesting tip to think about as you work out. Weight lifting to build muscle is very important. You can burn 30 to 50 calories more a day, even at rest! The more calories you burn at rest (24/7) the easier it is to create the body you desire. The other good news; if you add 5 pounds of muscle, you get to eat 250 more calories a day! After having Eliana, I have found that weight lifting combined with some cardio and healthy eating has helped me lose some of the baby weight. I'm still working on it. Also, contrary to popular belief...you will not bulk up if you weight lift. Muscle takes up less room on your body than fat does and muscle is what helps you burn the fat faster. :) Happy Holidays!

Thank you for your tips!!! Is helping me a lot. I started trying the new flour and made some homemade spagheties ( I hope I spelled right) and tortillas with the spelt flour. I added some eggs, oil, salt, warm water, and conbined with regular flour for better taste. The family eated, so i guess it was good. love you

Thanks mom. Isn't it amazing how spelt is so easy for the body to digest? You definitely feel less bloated than you would if you had just white flour right? Anyway, love you. You can also mix spelt with low carb/protein packed Soy flour. LOVE YOU!
