    WEEK OF NOVEMBER 7  – 13, 2010

     

     

     

     

     

    Tip of the Week
     

    Here’s a fun fact…Golf exercises are those that specifically target the muscles used during the golf swing. Golfers can improve their swings in various ways by incorporating golf exercises into a workout routine: lengthening the backswing, improving rotation, strengthening wrists and forearms and the muscles of the core.

    Spend time golfing(or on mini-golf courses :) with friends or loved ones and you’ll be exercising your arms and core muscles, while having fun.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Challenge of the Week

    (I think Ann’s suggestions are great, so I’m posting but ALL credit goes to Ann : )

     

     

    100 jumping jacks

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Myth of the Week(Is it True or False?)

     

     

    ”Certain foods, like grapefruit, celery, or cabbage soup, can burn fat and make you lose weight.”

     

    Answer: FALSE

     

     

    No foods can burn fat. Some foods with caffeine may speed up your metabolism (the way your body uses energy, or calories) for a short time, but they do not cause weight loss.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Healthy Recipe of the Week

                                                          

     

    hungarian-beef-goulash-6381-l.jpg 

     

    Hungarian Beef Goulash

    LOW-CARB recipe

     

    This saucy dish is a natural served over whole-wheat egg noodles. Or, for something different, try prepared potato gnocchi or spaetzle.

     

    Servings: 8 servings, about 1 cup each

    Prep: 30 mins

    Total: 4 hrs 30 mins

     

    Ingredients

     

    2 pounds  beef stew meat, (such as chuck), trimmed and cubed

    2 teaspoons  caraway seeds

    1 1/2 - 2 tablespoons sweet or hot paprika, (or a mixture of the two), preferably Hungarian (see Ingredient Note) //Chelsea’s Note: The recipe could use a couple more spoons full, so I would say about 3 tbsps

    1/4 teaspoon  salt

      Freshly ground pepper, to taste

    1  large or 2 medium onions, choppedand browned

    1  small red bell pepper, choppedand browned

    1 14-ounce can  diced tomatoes

    1 14-ounce can  reduced-sodium beef broth

    1 teaspoon  Worcestershire sauce

    3 cloves  garlic, minced

    2 bay leaves

    2 tablespoons  cornstarch mixed with 4 tablespoons water

    2 tablespoons  chopped fresh parsley

    1 carrot, sliced or cubed (optional)

     

    Directions

     

    1. Place beef in a 4-quart or larger slow cooker. Crush caraway seeds with the bottom of a saucepan. Transfer to a small bowl and stir in paprika, salt and pepper. Sprinkle the beef with the spice mixture and toss to coat well. Top with browned onion and bell pepper.

    2. Combine tomatoes, broth, Worcestershire sauce and garlic in a medium saucepan; bring to a simmer. Pour over the beef and vegetables. Place bay leaves on top. Cover and cook until the beef is very tender, 4 to 4 1/2 hours on high or 7 to 7 1/2 hours on low.

    3. Discard the bay leaves; skim or blot any visible fat from the surface of the stew. Add the cornstarch mixture to the stew and cook on high, stirring 2 or 3 times, until slightly thickened, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve sprinkled with parsley.

     

    Tips:
    Ingredient Note: Paprika specifically labeled as "Hungarian" is worth seeking out for this dish because it delivers a fuller, richer flavor than regular or Spanish paprika. Also, adding potatoes to the recipe will higher the carbs, but will also thicken the sauce.

     

    MAKE AHEAD TIP: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 4 months. | Prep ahead: Trim beef and coat with spice mixture. Prepare vegetables. Combine tomatoes, broth, Worcestershire sauce and garlic. Refrigerate in separate covered containers for up to 1 day.

        FINAL WEEK OF NOVEMBER 14  – 20, 2010

         

         

         

        Tip of the Week
         

        Did you know?…Your sense of taste doesn't always notice sodium, and sea salt or other gourmet salts aren't healthier than table salt.Just because it doesn't taste salty doesn't mean that it isn't salty. Many processed foods contain a lot of sodium -- check the label.

        Sea salt contains slightly less sodium per teaspoon than table salt only because sea salt is coarser, so fewer grains fit into the teaspoon.

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

        Challenge of the Week

        (I think Ann’s suggestions are great, so I’m posting but ALL credit goes to Ann : )

         

        50 Push-Ups

         

         

         

         

         

         

        Myth of the Week(Is it True or False?)

         

        ”Skipping meals is a good way to lose weight.”

         

        Answer: FALSE

         

        Studies show that people who skip breakfast and eat fewer times during the day tend to be heavier than people who eat a healthy breakfast and eat four or five times a day. This may be because people who skip meals tend to feel hungrier later on, and eat more than they normally would. It may also be that eating many small meals throughout the day helps people control their appetites.

         

        Tip:Eat small meals throughout the day that include a variety of healthy, low-fat, low-calorie foods.

                Hi Ladies, I was in the non-competing category because my wedding fell right in the middle of this season.  In all the chaos of leaving for the wedding, I forgot to send in my weight before I left.  However, I did reach my goal wedding weight which was super exciting for me.  Unfortunately after the wedding and honeymoon, I am up a couple lbs but I'm ok with that.  My current goal is to maintain.

                 

                Good luck to all of you who are still competing.  Great work ladies, keep it up!!!!
