Hello friends, thanks for the encouragement I truly appreciate all of you!!! Today was a great day, busy busy at work but I'm not complaining. No cheats today, and I feel good. I did pilates twice today before and after work I think I'm gonna try to do that all week. I took a cue from Rosalie and I put benefiber in my coffee this morning. Hubby has high school youth group tonight and I really wanted to stop for some food on the way home, but I thought about how badly I want to get to my goals and I resisted. I had a can of tuna and olives for dinner instead, strange I know but I didn't feel like cooking and it filled me up.
I read an awesome article in Women's World April 4th Magazine that I want to share. The title of the article is The Bacteria that can make you healthier...you guessed it Probiotics.
1. Probiotics prevent infection by boosting immune function. Our digestive tracts produce up to half of our immune cells and it needs healthy bacteria to function properly.
2. Probiotics shield our heart by lowering blood fats. Probiotics help block cholesterol absorption in the digestive tract and help improve how our liver functions and helps to lower the production of artery clogging fats.
3. Ease stomach woes by pushing out bad bacteria. Probiotics help heal and strengthen the digestive tract, and helps to reduce bloating, constipation, gas and diarrhea.
4. Soothe irritated skin by quashing inflammation. Probiotics can help cut flare ups of eczema, allergies and other skin problems by kick starting the production of skin healing anti-inflammatory compounds.
