Weight a Minute Monday! Breakfast of Champions

We are delighted that so many of you Spicy Ladies are taking your health and wellness seriously! In last weeks Weight a Minute Monday post, we discussed some do's and don'ts, specifically the importance of not skipping breakfast. As a result we received many emails wanting breakfast specifics and recommendations from Dalana, our expert for this series.

So we asked Dalana, what should we eat for breakfast? And this is what she said...
"Here are some suggestions for breakfast. You can mix and match them if you'd like some variety. According to, you should aim to get 20-25 percent of your daily calories from breakfast, which means 350 if you are on a 1500 calorie a day diet.

Oatmeal w/ cinnamon to taste (instant regular flavor is okay)
Cold cereals with low fat milk such as Cheerios (Plain or multi grain) and a banana
2 egg whites with a slice of 100% whole wheat toast
1 cup of cranberries with 2 tbsp of plain yogurt and 1 tsp of honey
Yoplait light yogurt (fruit flavors)
Fresh fruit salad
Low fat cottage cheese and any kind of fruit
Smoothie:blend yogurt and your favorite fruit

Healthy breakfast bars that are high in fiber and low in sugar (i.e. Kashi bars) are okay when there is not enough time to prepare breakfast. But, try to prepare a homemade healthy breakfast as often as possible."

So there you have it ladies! Hopefully that will help you start your day with a healthy breakfast so that you can kick start you body's metabolism and be one step closer to that hot and spicy body!

*Flavor Tip- Get up a few minutes early or on the weekend when you have extra time, prepare a healthy breakfast in bed! Take turns feeding eachother and for extra spice & flavor get in a "quickie" calorie burn...if you know what I mean!

Till death to us part...married people live longer!

There are numerous studies that show that married individuals tend to live longer than singles! Despite the many stigmas often associated with married life...its dull, its boring, wives are nags and so on & so on! FINALLY, a point for the married team!

The data affiliated with many of these studies has produced multiple theories as to why married people tend to live longer. Emotional stability and regular sex are among the contributing factors. Emotionally, married people tend to be less stressed because they have a partner to share obligations with. That stability also translates into other aspects of life, regulating sleep, eating and unhealthy recreational activities. Your spouse will often hold you accountable, because they question and discourage unhealthy behaviours and encourage you to seek professional attention from doctors or other health professionals as needed.

There are also many known health benefits from sex! A married person, has regular access.
Did you know that sex...
- relives stress (Many hormones are released into your body causing feelings of euphoria and contentment. Simply taking your mind off your troubles and engaging in love making will take away stress and stress can aggravate and contribute to serious illness.)
- boosts immunity (It is cold and flu season and while you may getting in your vitamin C, don't forget you IgA! Having sex weekly can increase the antibody immunoglobulin, also referred to as IgA, protects against cold & flu.)
- burns calories (Good sex can be a workout. So if you can't make it to the gym, don't worry. You can get a good calorie burn in the bedroom!)
- improves cardiovascular health (Sex gets that heart pumping and blood flowing! Which is a great thing for your cardiovascular health!)
- boosts self esteem & self image (When you have a regular sex partner you often become more body conscious and begin taking better care of yourself. The pride you feel can produce a stronger sense of confidence. Physical touch and love improves your intimacy and bond with your mate, resulting in a more positive outlook on life in general. )
- produces orgasm (A hormone called DHEA released in the body has been linked to longer life expectancy. Studies suggest that at least 2 orgasm a week, increase DHEA in the body. )
- reduces pain & headaches (No more excuses that "you have a headache" because sex will knock that right out! Again, hormones releases produced during sex will dull and relieve pain. YES, that includes a headache.)
- helps you sleep better (Ladies, this comes as know surprise! Its not that you just have the special touch, its a scientific fact. After love making, right when you are ready to talk or cuddle up, hes out like a light! Don't get mad, sleep is good for him and you too.)
Continue to work on keeping your marriage could add years to your life!

Weight a Minute Monday!

We can't discuss being fit & healthy without first, acknowledging the ladies who participated in our Femme Fatale Fitness class! Thank you ladies for another great and Spicy fitness experience! Divas Inc. offers the session every if you missed it, or if you want to attend again, check them out! Ladies, whatever your workout of choice, lets keep getting physical!

Last week we posted of lists of tips to live by, from our expert, Dalana Myers. That list, although a pretty short list, included some critical dos and don'ts to achieve a lifestyle change that will help you loose weight and keep it off! Over the next few weeks we will analyze and breakdown each item on the list. Starting with #1...Never Skip Breakfast!

We know you have heard, "breakfast is the most important meal of the day", but its true! It can be a challenge to eat breakfast EVERYDAY, but you can do it. It will require you change your way of thinking and make you weight loss and fitness goals a priority! If we gave ourselves and our bodies the same level of importance we do getting to work on time, or getting the kids off to school (any and everything else under the sun) - maybe we could find the time. Frankly, we have to start making ourselves a priority so that we can do all of those other things. Eating breakfast everyday jumps starts your metabolism and fuels your body to get you going. Skipping breakfast also causes your body to send messages to your brain that cause other problems in your body, low energy and irritability!

Do you eat breakfast everyday? What are your favorite things to eat for breakfast?
Dalana is going to going to share with us some healthy options for stay tuned!

Weight a Minute Monday!

We are 10 days into the New Year! Have you fallen off the diet train yet? Or does that crash diet have you to weak to exercise? As promised, we are going to bring you practical tips and recipes to help you achieve your goals to get fit, improve your health, loose the weight and keep it off!

Last week we introduced our expert, Dalana Myers, who is a Certified Health Education Specialists. As we move forward, we have established that fad and crash diets are not the way to go. Especially if you are desire long lasting results!

TO LOOSE WEIGHT, you must burn more calories than you take in. Simple science!
But you cannot simply cut calories by eating less. Its important to eat quality calories so your body can function the way its suppose to. That's why low calorie crash diets and yo-yo dieting is unhealthy and potentially dangerous. Eating a variety of foods to maintain a balanced diet is key, accompanied with regular exercise and results will follow. Exercising will help you burn unwanted calories and fat. Not to mention the many health benefits of exercise such as improving your heart health, blood circulation and stamina.
Our expert has a few simple tips to live by...
* Never skip breakfast
* Eat 3 meals per day and 2 small snacks in between. Or 4 to 6 small meals a day.
* Exercise a minimum of 3 times a week.
* Know what foods to avoid.
(high fructose corn syrup, enriched flour, excessive sugar and trans and/or saturated fats- to name a few)

These tips will be our foundation. And yes, these are things we know and have heard before...

Through our Weight a minute Monday Series, we will elaborate on these basic tip and break each one down. So be sure to check in weekly. And of course, comment - leave questions for Dalana, stories of progress or challenges because we are on this journey together!
