Hungry Girl Today: 9.15.10
Hi Hungry Girl!
I love your videos! It's so cool to see you in action at the HG headquarters,
especially in the live Ustream events where we can interact with you. Will
you be doing more videos soon? And when is the Hungry Girl TV show
iWant My MmmmTV
I'm so happy you enjoy the videos and Ustream events... They're really a lot
of fun for me, too! We'll actually be doing another live event next Tuesday,
September 21st. It'll be sponsored by one of our favorite food companies.
Keep checking the HG Facebook page for updates, and look for the video in
an upcoming Side Dish email. BTW, you can see all the HG videos --
including recipe demos, TV appearances, and sponsored videos -- on our
Hungryvision page. The latest one takes you behind the scenes at a St. Louis
Cardinals game where I threw out the first pitch! As for the show, it'll begin
airing in January on Cooking Channel, a fantastic new station from the
creators of Food Network. (Make sure you get the channel!!!) I'm actually
working on the show RIGHT NOW, and I cannot believe how exciting,
informative, and fun it is. I truly think you, the HG subscribers, will L.O.V.E.
it! Stay tuned...
So now that summer's officially over -- and all the crazy cookouts and food-
filled, fun-in-the-sun parties have passed -- it's time for me to get back on
track with my diet and exercise. Pleeeeeeease tell me you have some advice
for me. I seriously do not know where to start. HELP!
I think a lot of people can relate to your situation. And although it can be
tough to get back on track, it's definitely not impossible. Here are some tips
& tricks that I think will help tremendously...
You don't have to go "on a diet." While diet plans can be helpful, they aren't
always the best approach. If you think of yourself as being "on a diet," your
ideas about food could become too black and white. A little setback could
lead you to decide you're "off your diet," and then it's easy to slide back into
old habits. Think of your new eating plan as more of a lifestyle change -- one
that will have ups and downs, with good days and bad.
Keep track of what you eat. Write it down. As dorky as it sounds, you WILL
100 percent without a doubt make better choices if you hold yourself
accountable for what you eat by keeping a food journal. Just do it -- even if
you only write in it every OTHER day.
Get exercise with activities you enjoy. I used to HATE exercising. I feared it.
Now I exercise but only do what I like: I walk on a treadmill five times a
week (while watching reality TV!) and weight train twice a week with a friend.
If I really want to push myself, I do some high-intensity Pilates. Choose an
exercise routine you actually enjoy doing, otherwise you'll probably just end
up ditching it completely.
Drink lots of water. Water is good for you. It's good for your skin and your
metabolism. And it helps fill you up. Plus, not getting enough water can make
you cranky and more likely to make bad food choices.
Live one day (or even one MEAL) at a time. Don't be discouraged and beat
yourself up if you fall off the wagon and eat badly -- just be aware and make
better decisions at your next meal.

CHEW ON THIS:
Today, September 15th, is National Crème De Menthe Day. Instead of
celebrating with the caloric minty liquor, grab a copy of Hungry Girl Happy
Hour and whip up a Winter Wonderland Peppermintini. (So what if it isn't
winter?) Under-agers, use light vanilla soymilk instead of vodka!
