10 Tips – Wake Up Happier and Thinner

KICKOL-LOGO.jpgThis morning, at 6:47 a.m. to be precise, I was interviewed by the fabulous Dr. Alvin Augustus Jones on The Paradise Radio Network, WCBQ-AM 1340 and WHNC-AM 890.
In keeping with the time of day, Dr. Jones asked me if I had any tips on how best to start our day. Here, I share the full list, my top 10 tips that are sure to energy, boost moods, lift spirits and help you to lose weight!
1. Start your day with a smile. Just as your eyes are fluttering and you are becoming aware that a new day stands before you, smile. It sets a positive tone that will reverberate throughout your day.
2. Expect a miracle. Believe that something extraordinary will show up in your day. Open your heart and mind and allow the universe to bestow gifts and blessings on you.
3. A blast of fresh air. Open a window or two and take in a deep breath of fresh air. So refreshing!
4. Drink a glass or two of water. Your body is hard at work when you are sleeping, and your water levels are not being replenished. Drinking water upon waking helps to flush the toxins out of your body, energize you and helps in your weight loss efforts.
5. Dance to the music. Turn on and tune into your favorite dance music. Shake your booty. Can you feel the happy energy swirling?
6. Take a cold shower. Enjoy your hot shower, but be sure to end it on a cold note! Not only will you wake up and feel energized, but a cold shower helps to increase circulation throughout the body, clean the circulatory system, reduce blood pressure on internal organs and much more!
7. Go green tea. People who drink coffee often find that the initial burst of energy feels good, but it’s not worth the crash that is sure to follow. Green tea is a healthy and natural energizer.
8. Eat a healthy breakfast. Maybe some fresh fruit, sprouted wheat bread, an organic hard boiled egg? Not only will you get the energy from these healthy foods that you need to keep your body moving, but eating breakfast is an important part of weight loss.
9. Talk to Your Plants. If you have some plants (either inside or outside), water them, touch them, smell them and talk to them. Having contact first thing in the morning with nature is grounding.
10. Make a Fashion Statement. Wear something that brings out the best in you. Something that makes you feel good, that represents the real you!
Now, are you ready to walk out into the world and enjoy another fabulous day?
Great, me too!!!

Maya Angelou taken to Los Angeles Hospital? Phenomenal Woman

A friend telephoned this morning and told me that Maya Angelou had been taken to Los Angeles Hospital. We, a group of friends, went to hear Maya speak last year. All hardcore, diehard fans, we ingested every poetic and meaningful word that she uttered.
Just in case you’d heard the same rumor, I am now happy to report that it is not true. Nevertheless, I do love Maya and I’d like to share one of poems with you.
Phenomenal Woman
Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can’t see.
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
‘Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
Spread the word … NOT the Icing!
Janice

20 Quick and Simple Weight Loss Tips

KICKOL-LOGO.jpgEven though I permanently removed over 50 pounds 8 years ago, I still – sometimes – especially when traveling, have a lapse of memory and forget the basics. This time, as I head off into the sunset for the weekend, I jotted down a quick check list of things I want to fully remember and live by these next few days!
Perhaps, they will help you be a Weekend Weight Loss Warrior, as well!
1. Drink lots and lots of water and then some more.
2. Savor the flavor.
3. Chew slowly.
4. Eat plenty of greens.
5. Eat root vegetables.
6. Have a nutritious smoothie for breakfast (instead of the free pastries).
7. Upgrade your chocolate from dark chocolate to organic chocolate. (one fabulous treat!)
8. Toss those artificial sweeteners. (They trigger sugar cravings! Plus, they can’t be good for us? No?)
9. Eat whole grains
10. Avoid ‘white flour.’ (It’s been 10 days now, since I’m off the white stuff. I’ll write more about it after it’s been a month!)
11. Let go of ‘white sugar.’
12. Eat more beans and legumes.
13. Discover Indian spices.
14. Eat seasonally. (For restaurant ordering!)
15. Do NOT skip meals.
16. Eat breakfast for sure.
17. Eat lightly in the evening.
18. Make lunch your main meal.

20. Eat fruit.
Enjoy your weekend.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month: My Mammogram and You?

How many people do you know who have breast cancer, have died from breast cancer, or are breast cancer survivors? My cousin, after 6 chemotherapy sessions, is now going for radiation treatment. A dear friend recently completed a full year of chemo and radiation and is now taking an oral tablet called Tamoxifen. A friend from my book group was prescribed radiation treatments only. Many of my coaching clients are cancer survivors.
The Statistics:
In 2009, some 192,370 American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, accounting for more than one in four cancers diagnosed.
In 2009, an estimated 40,170 women will die from breast cancer
.
What to do? Get a mammogram. I kicked off Breast Cancer Awareness Month by having one this morning at 7:15 a.m.!! The early bird special. No big deal, truly and what a ‘weight’ off my shoulders.
What is a mammogram?
A mammogram is an x-ray of the breast. Mammograms can be used to check for breast cancer in women who have no signs or symptoms of the disease.
The Benefits of Mammography.
1. Early detection of breast cancer greatly improves our chances for successful treatment. If the breast cancer is found and treated while it is still confined to the breast ducts, the cure is almost 100%
2. Studies in the U.S., Sweden and the Netherlands suggest that deaths from breast cancer could be significantly lessened by 36% to 44%. They suggest that women in their 40’s schedule a mammography annually.
3. The American Cancer Society reports that their recent trials found 18% fewer deaths from breast cancer among women who, in their 40’s, had mammography.
4. For women over 50, the FDA reports that a mammography can locate lumps up to two years before they can be felt.
