10 easy and effective ways to lose weight

I know some of us especially women are desperate to lose weight and probably have tried so many diet pills, diets and other slimming programs but to no avail. The fats just don’t go away. What is wrong here, you asked? The only way to losing weight is to know the basics of what actually works to lose weight.

You’ve probably heard of them before but I will post them again here.

1. Losing weight is all about being honest to yourself. You can’t expect to eat chocolates in your room and expect to lose the muffin tops on your waist.

2. Cutting down on sugar. This is the most important thing to remember about losing weight. Almost all that we eat contains sugar, even carbohydrate contains sugar, if we could cut out our sugar consumption that would help in your losing weight goal. You don’t have to cut sugar abruptly but first try to reduce the intake from 2 teaspoons to 1. Once you get used to the taste, you can cut back sugar altogether. If you love eating rice, try to just have one serving of rice and eat more vegetables, which will help you to avoid getting another second round/serving.

3. Reduce fats or oils in your cooking. I should say this is the culprit! Imagine the steak and all! Yes, again self control. I know it’s hard but think of the jeans you’ve been wanting to put on.

4. Eat more vegetables and fruits. Not only they are nutritional, they taste great too with the right dressing (use low fat) and yoghurt. In fact, you shouldn’t worry if you consume more than you should because these won’t make you fat but gives you a feeling of fullness and more alert.

5. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. I know this is too overrated but should we argue– furthermore water is always free. Forget about anything with zero or light you see on labels, water is always the best option, if you want more zing or zest to your water, add lemon – it’s a very refreshing drink and flush out toxins in your urine. Think of it as an internal body cleanser.

6. If you follow steps 1-5, then you’re on your successful goal to losing weight slowly but surely, BUT if you add some movement in your lifestyle, with something so easy as taking a walk for 30 mins a day, you could say goodbye to muffin tops! In fact, why should we even complain when you get a lot of goodness out of walking, we do it everyday anyway, adding extra half and hour is more than enough to keep the weight away.

7. Have enough sleep, if you are like me who can’t sleep as early as 11.00 pm or just before midnight, then try having a nap in the afternoon. It’s refreshing and good for the brain. Getting enough sleep, keeps you more alert and energized.

8. Read labels on every food you buy to know how much calories per saving. Use per cup measurement so you don’t over stuff yourself especially food that contains high fat density. Nuts are good for you but limit yourself to only 1/2 cup per serving. Remember – self control! See portion control.
9. Get some motivation, it is always easy to lose weight when you and your spouse wanted to lose weight together instead of just you- if your spouse does not worry about his weight, ask a girlfriend/relative/your mom- anyone – I know most women are very body conscious.

10. Last but not least, reward yourself. Yes, who doesn’t love getting a reward especially when you’ve manage to resist all the eating temptations, i.e no cakes, no chocolates for a whole week! Good, now reward or treat yourself once a week to something you really love, get that refreshing body massage you’ve ever wanted or have a slice of cake (but then again, DO NOT OVEREAT!) One whole week without those sweet stuff is hard enough so you really deserve it!

Motivate yourself to lose weight

Losing weight is every woman’s dream or want. But how bad do we want to lose weight that sometimes losing weight is merely coming from the mouth. Yeah, I am saying this because I am in that position too. Sometimes having a crosstrainer at home or that threadmill is not always the solution that one will exercise to lose weight.

In this scenario, motivation and discipline is very important. The question here is how to get motivated? One thing that really work is to take a photo of your flabby/heavy self and paste it on a mirror or better still in front of the fridge where you could be reminded easily. It’s like looking at a sexy model, what do you think when you see one. You feel envious right? Yes, and that’s exactly what you should feel. Paste that model’s photo next to your photo (side by side) and tell yourself to achieve that goal, well maybe not as perfect as the model but the idea behind this is to motivate yourself and to have desire to lose weight and achieve it. Give yourself a time frame, say 6 months to lose 12 lbs which is a sensible figure to lose.

Remember you need to lose weight slowly, do something that you enjoy and at the same time burning some calories. A good example is to jog early in the morning or take a brisk walk for 10 minutes daily or increase it to 30 minutes every other day.

Losing or reducing weight is easy when it is inserted in our daily routine.
And another thing, try to resist snacking late during the night. I am not saying that you couldn’t enjoy chocolate and sweets stuff, but try to minimize the intake to once a week. Make Sunday your snacking day so you don’t crave so badly.

5 Perkara Rosakkan Aqidah Muslimah

Menurut Dr. Aidh Al- Qarni dalam sebuah coretannya khusus buat Muslimah bertajuk As'Ad Al-Mar'ah Fil Alam berkata:

"Jangan biarkan hatimu dihancurkan oleh tanganmu sendiri."

Segala-galanya menerusi hati..

Jangan resah dan gelisah - usah selalu mengeluh dengan keadaan kerana ramai lagi yang lebih malang berbanding kita

Jangan sedih dan berasa derita - Hapuskan perasaan ini dengan beristighfar, berdoa, dan mohonlah pertolongan daripada ALLAH swt

Jangan lemah dan malas - Aktifkan diri dengan ibadat, berzikir, mencari ilmu, bekerja dan beriadah

Jangan banyak berhutang - Nafsu jika dituruti kita tidak akan puas, akibatnya hidup tidak akan tenteram jika terlalu mengejar harta, pangkat dan duniawi

Jangan kedekut dan pengecut - Rezeki yang ALLAH beri bukan milik peribadi kerana padanya ada hak orang miskin dan anak yatim. Begitu juga dengan tanggungjawab terhadap ibu bapa kerana keredaan ALLAH juga bergantung pada keredaan mereka

Baginda Rasullullah saw mengajar doa untuk selamatkan diri daripada lima perkara diatas:

"Ya ALLAH, aku berlindung kepada-MU daripada rasa resah, dari sedih dan derita, dari kelemahan dan kemalasan, dari sifat kedekut dan pengecut dan dari lilitan hutang dan tekanan orang".

Sumber: Annur- Feb 2010

Sekadar renungan kita bersama, juga peringatan untuk diri kami sendiri..

7% - Something from my mum

This is something we should all read at least once a week!!!!! Make sure you read to the end!!!!!!

Written by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio .

"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written.

My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.

16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.

19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.

23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'

27. Always choose life.

28. Forgive everyone everything.

29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

33. Believe in miracles.

34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.

35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood.

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.

41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

42. The best is yet to come...

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

44. Yield.

45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."

Its estimated 93% won't forward this. If you are one of the 7% who will,
forward this with the title '7%'.

I'm in the 7%. Friends are the family that we choose.

Adab Minum Rasulullah S.A.W

Adab Minum Rasulullah S.A.W
03 Muharam 1432H
Oleh : Markisa Razak

Rasulullah SAW amat menyukai minum madu yang dicampur dengan air sejuk. Amalan ini untuk tujuan amalan kesihatan. Rasulullah SAW juga suka minum air sejuk dan mencicip madu sebelum makan apa-apa diwaktu pagi.

Antara khasiat amalan-amalan ini ialah:

1. Menghilangkan balqham (kahak/lendir)
2. Mencuci perut
3. Membuang sisa-sisa makanan yang tertinggal didalam perut yang tidak
dicernakan dengan sempurna dan menolaknya ke usus besar
4. Menghapuskan sukatan dalam usus, menghilangkan senak perut dan sedu
5. Memperbaiki fungsi buah pinggang, limpa dan hati.

Rasullah SAW suka minum air yang telah disimpan semalaman didalam suatu bekas.

Minuman Manis dan Sejuk

Aisyah (ranha) meriwayatkan bahawa: " Diantara banyak-banyak jenis minuman, Rasulullah saw suka minuman manis dan sejuk"

Hadis bermaksud, baginda mengemari minuman manis dan sejuk, campuran madu atau nabiz (rendaman buah tamar).

Didalam suatu doa Rasullah ada menyebut " Ya Allah kurniakanlah aku dengan cintaMu yang lebih besar dari cintaku kepada nyawa, harta,anak dan cintaku kepada air sejuk"

Ini memberi isyarat bahawa sudah tentu minuman air sejuk itu mempunyai khasiat yang lebih besar. Adapun minuman jika terkumpul didalamnya kemanisan dan kesejukan akan menjadi asbab yang paling bermanfaat untuk penjagaan kesihatan tubuh badan Ini sekali gus berperanan bahan pemakanan dan mencernakan makanan yang masuk kedalam tubuh lalu menyalurkannya keseluruh anggota badan.

Ringkasan adab minum :

1. Gelas atau cawan hendaklah dipegang dengan tangan kanan
2. Bacalah " Bismillah"
3. Minum dengan tiga nafas
4. Minum dalam keadaan duduk
5. Jangan bernafas kedalam air. Setiap kali berhenti minum arahkan pernafasan ketempat lain.
6. Setiap kali berhenti minum (pada setiap penafasan) bacalah Alhamdullilah
7. Jika tidak ada tempat untuk duduk adalah diharuskan minum sambil berdiri
8. Jangan terus minum selepas selesai mengerjakan kerja-kerja berat.
9. Minum dari baki air yang telah diminum oleh orang lain, Hadis menyatakan bahawasaki baki air minuman seseorang Islam adalah ubat untuk penyakit.

The 10 best foods for your heart

Take heart with berries, beans, and other healthy fare.

Start your day with a steaming bowl of oats, which are full of omega-3 fatty acids, folate, and potassium. This fiber-rich superfood can lower levels of LDL (or bad) cholesterol and help keep arteries clear.

Opt for coarse or steel-cut oats over instant varieties—which contain more fiber—and top your bowl off with a banana for another 4 grams of fiber.

Super-rich in omega-3 fatty acids, salmon can effectively reduce blood pressure and keep clotting at bay. Aim for two servings per week, which may reduce your risk of dying of a heart attack by up to one-third.

"Salmon contains the carotenoid astaxanthin, which is a very powerful antioxidant," says cardiologist Stephen T. Sinatra, MD, the author of Lower Your Blood Pressure In Eight Weeks. But be sure to choose wild salmon over farm-raised fish, which can be packed with insecticides, pesticides, and heavy metals.

Not a fan of salmon? Other oily fish like mackerel, tuna, herring, and sardines will give your heart the same boost. 20 healthy salmon recipes

Add a bit of avocado to a sandwich or spinach salad to up the amount of heart-healthy fats in your diet. Packed with monounsaturated fat, avocados can help lower LDL levels while raising the amount of HDL cholesterol in your body.

"Avocados are awesome," says Dr. Sinatra. "They allow for the absorption of other carotenoids—especially beta-carotene and lycopene—which are essential for heart health." 8 avocado recipes besides guacamole

Olive oil
Full of monounsaturated fats, olive oil lowers bad LDL cholesterol and reduces your risk of developing heart disease.

Results from the Seven Countries Study, which looked at cardiovascular disease incidences across the globe, showed that while men in Crete had a predisposition for high cholesterol levels, relatively few died of heart disease because their diet focused on heart-healthy fats found in olive oil. Look for extra-virgin or virgin varieties—they're the least processed—and use them instead of butter when cooking.

Walnuts are full of omega-3 fatty acids and, along with almonds and macadamia nuts, are loaded with mono- and polyunsaturated fat. Plus, nuts increase fiber in the diet, says Dr. Sinatra. "And like olive oil, they are a great source of healthy fat." 8 super nuts

Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries—whatever berry you like best—are full of anti-inflammatories, which reduce your risk of heart disease and cancer.

"Blackberries and blueberries are especially great," says Sinatra. "But all berries are great for your vascular health."

Fill up on fiber with lentils, chickpeas, and black and kidney beans. They're packed with omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, and soluble fiber.

Spinach can help keep your ticker in top shape thanks to its stores of lutein, folate, potassium, and fiber.

But upping your servings of any veggies is sure to give your heart a boost. The Physicians' Health Study examined more than 15,000 men without heart disease for a period of 12 years. Those who ate at least two-and-a-half servings of vegetables each day cut their risk of heart disease by about 25%, compared with those who didn't eat the veggies. Each additional serving reduced risk by another 17%. What can you make with fresh baby spinach?

Flaxseed Full of fiber and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, a little sprinkling of flaxseed can go a long way for your heart. Top a bowl of oatmeal or whole-grain cereal with a smidgen of ground flaxseed for the ultimate heart-healthy breakfast.

Soy may lower cholesterol, and since it is low in saturated fat, it's still a great source of lean protein in a heart-healthy diet. Supplements for cholesterol: What works?

Look for natural sources of soy, like edamame, tempeh, or organic silken tofu. And soy milk is a great addition to a bowl of oatmeal or whole-grain cereal. But watch the amount of salt in your soy: some processed varieties like soy dogs can contain added sodium, which boosts blood pressure.

I'm cooking okey!!! ;)
