    Did any of you see Oprah today? VERY GOOD!!! She had Dr. Oz and Bob Greene. the show was on healthy eating and losing weight. Its not up on youtube yet so I'll keep an eye out for it

    there were 2 researches they did and the results SHOCKED me!

    the first was do we really need to push ourselves to drink 8 or more glasses of water a day? Now this was done on people who are considered healthy. they weren't incredibly healthy, they drank, ate chips, choc, etc but in moderation and are consedered healthy. the part of it they showed was these twin sisters who drank 1.5 liters to 2 liters of water a day. they thought they needed this to stay healthey and to have beautiful skin. so they took tests on them especially on their skin as far as moisture, elasticity, etc. then I can't remember how long I think it was 4 weeks they kept their same diet, but one girl consumed the same amount of water, and the other wasn't allowed to have any. their was NO change in their stats. Dr. Oz said as long as you keep a fairly decent diet we don't need to force ourselves to drink so much water. Our food has ALOt of water. a potatoes is 75% water, a lean steak is 60% water, etc.

    the second thing they did is they took a ton of girls who were generally healthy and just liked to treat themselves alot. they took half the girls and did a week of detox diet with them, almost all different shakes. and the others enjoyed a normal healthy diet and in the end there was no difference either!

    We just have to eat healthy! Period. For long term weight loss we need to exercise. Here is a good video and some stuff from Dr. Oz and Bob greene:

          I love Oprah. Thanks for sharing the information. Darnit, I might not make today's challenge. I went for a 30 minute walk, but it was very slow around the block walking. Anyways, I have an upset tummy (too much bad for me food, oops).

              Well, we had to come back early from our backpacking trip and I was so disappointed I spent two days shoving whatever I wanted to in my mouth. I was supposed to be hiking 6 - 8 hours a day..... So I guess tomorrow I better get myself back in gear.

              For a challenge tomorrow how about hitting those nasty lower body bulges and toning arms:

              3 sets of 20 lunges-10 each leg with alternating bicep curls.
              AND
              3 sets of 20 squats.(Want more of a challenge-add an overhead shoulder press as you come up from the squat).

              If you don't go to the gym or have weights at home grab a couple of cans of soup or whatever and do these in your living room. Trust me-even with a can of tuna you will feel 20 overhead shoulder presses lol. If anyone catches you just deny it.

                  Thank you SO much for posting this. fascinating!!! I've been killing myself trying to drink the "8 glasses of water" everyday!!! Now I know that eating healthy and working out are enough and if I don't get exactly 8 glasses of water, it's not going to set me back!

                      I am in for the challenge! I can honestly say the best legs of my life I used to lunge around the house LOL. When I get on the phone I start pacing so I would just lunge pace around, by the time I finished a phone call I had a a workout!

                      Glad that info helped you girls. It made feel better, like I was ok! Of course they aren't saying we dont need water at all, but if we eat healthy we don't need to force ourselves to drink 8 glasses!

                      I haven't weighed myself yet! Its been kinda hectic! I'm off to do it now!

                      YAY Deanna! I really can't wait to see yours and MarieSams photos!
