- Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F.
- Place the sweet potato chunks into a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with the olive oil, then sprinkle the brown sugar, paprika, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, poultry seasoning, chili powder, and cayenne pepper overtop. Toss until the potatoes are evenly coated with the seasoning. Spread onto a baking sheet.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, then turn the potatoes over with a spatula, and continue baking until the sweet potatoes are golden and tender, 10 to 15 minutes more.

Vaccines: Keep your child's shots on track
Childhood vaccines offer protection from serious or potentially fatal diseases. Know which vaccines your child needs now and which vaccines are coming up. By Mayo Clinic staff
The vaccine schedule is designed to ensure that children receive vaccines at the optimal time to protect them from infectious diseases. The schedule is updated every year, and changes range from the addition of a new vaccine to tweaks of current recommendations.
Given the schedule's complexity and frequent updates, it can be challenging for parents to stay on top of which vaccines their children need and when. Use this guide to find out which vaccines your child needs now and which vaccines are coming up based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
If your child has health issues, such as HIV or diabetes, or if you're planning to travel outside the U.S., talk to your doctor about whether your child needs to follow a different vaccine schedule.
If your child misses a dose of a vaccine, ask your child's doctor about scheduling a catch-up vaccination. If you're ever unsure about which vaccines your child needs, don't hesitate to ask the doctor. You might also ask about combination vaccines to reduce the number of shots in a single visit.
The first dose of the hepatitis B vaccine is usually given at birth. A second dose may be given at age 1 month or at 2 months when other vaccinations are typically given.
- Hepatitis B vaccine, first dose
Age 2 months
At age 2 months, a series of several vaccinations usually begins. Combination vaccines are generally used to reduce the number of shots.
- Hepatitis B vaccine, second dose if not given at 1 month
- Rotavirus (RV) vaccine, first dose
- Diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and acellular pertussis (DTaP) vaccine, first dose
- Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) conjugate vaccine, first dose
- Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13), first dose
- Inactivated poliovirus vaccine (IPV), first dose
Age 4 months
At age 4 months, follow-up doses of the vaccines administered at 2 months are usually given. Check with your child's doctor about catch-up vaccinations if your child is behind schedule or has missed any doses of vaccines.
- Rotavirus (RV) vaccine, second dose
- Diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and acellular pertussis (DTaP) vaccine, second dose
- Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) conjugate vaccine, second dose
- Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13), second dose
- Inactivated poliovirus vaccine (IPV), second dose
Age 6 months
At age 6 months, a third round of vaccinations is given. A yearly seasonal influenza (flu) vaccine also is recommended beginning at age 6 months and continuing through age 18 years. For children younger than age 2 years, the influenza vaccine is given as a shot. The first time a child receives the vaccine, it's usually divided into two doses. Ask your child's doctor for details.
- Hepatitis B vaccine, third dose
- Rotavirus (RV) vaccine, third dose if needed
- Diphtheria toxoid, tetanus toxoid and acellular pertussis (DTaP) vaccine, third dose
- Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) conjugate vaccine, third dose
- Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13), third dose
- Inactivated poliovirus vaccine (IPV), third dose
- Influenza vaccine, once a year
Ages 12 to 18 months
The final doses of both Hib vaccine and PCV13 are usually given between ages 12 and 15 months. The fourth dose of DTaP is usually given between ages 15 and 18 months. However, in some cases, the fourth dose can be given as early as age 12 months — as long as it's been six months since the previous dose.
In addition, the first doses of MMR, varicella and hepatitis A vaccines are usually given at this time. The second dose of the hepatitis A vaccine can be given between ages 12 months and 23 months — as long as it's been six months since the previous dose.
- Diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and acellular pertussis (DTaP) vaccine, fourth dose
- Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) conjugate vaccine, fourth dose
- Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13), fourth dose
- Measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, first dose
- Varicella vaccine, first dose
- Hepatitis A vaccine, two doses given at least six months apart
- Influenza vaccine, once a year
No one wants flying insects buzzing around inside. Keep bugs at bay by hanging long strips of duct tape from the ceiling (like flypaper). If you’re looking to get a cardio workout out of your bug trapping, wrap a tennis racket in duct tape (sticky side out) and wave it around to trap the little critters.
Exercise and Breast Pain in Women
“Now you may think that the topic of breast pain in women who exercise is unusual, but scientists in England have found that it can be profound enough that it affects training and workouts. It makes sense that the larger the breast, the more complications. Of course, a well-fitting sports bra has been shown to help in as many as 85% of women. However, a large number of women, including the 1300 surveyed who ran the London Marathon, are not wearing the right bra.
Researchers found that the breast tissue can move as much as 8 inches in space when running, not just up and down, but side-to-side, and forward/backward. This can cause enough pain that 25% of these women either reduced their intensity or skipped exercise all together.
The Research Group in Breast Health suggests following these 5 simple steps to a correct bra fit:
1) BAND - The band should fit firmly around the chest. It should not slide around as you move, but it should not be too tight to be uncomfortable, affect breathing or make flesh bulge over the band. The band should be level all the way around the chest.
2) CUP - The breasts should be enclosed within the cups, with no bulging or gaping at the top or sides. If the cup material is puckering then the cup size is probably too big.
3) UNDERWIRE - The underwire should follow the natural crease of the breasts and not rest on any breast tissue (in the center, underneath the bra or under the arms). If the underwire is resting too far down the ribcage (i.e. where the ribcage gets slightly narrower) the band size is probably too small.
4) FRONT - The front of the bra (the lower edge under the breasts and between the cups if a separate piece exists) should sit flat against the body and not gape away from the chest. If the front of the bra is lifting away the cup size may need to be increased.
5) STRAPS - The shoulder straps should be adjusted to comfortably provide breast support without being too tight (i.e. digging into the skin). The main support for the breast should come from a firm band, not tight shoulder straps. “ Brown, N. et al, "The Experience of Breast Pain (mastalgia) in Female Runners of the 2012 London Marathon and its Effect on Exercise Behaviour" Br J Sports Med bjsports-2013-092175Published Online First: 19 April 2013 doi:10.1136/bjsports-2013-092175
Is the 1RM Really the Best Method?
(AlamoShape note: See this article regarding 1 rep max testing. We don’t usually do this, preferring the 3-rep max as a safer alternative. This article confirms this approach as better.)
“Even though 1RM testing is used to measure strength in a client, it is not always the best method for various reasons. Researchers at Fairmont State University in West Virginia wanted to evaluate the accuracy of 3 repetition loads (3RM, 7RM, and 10RM) for predicting the 1RM for the bench press.
Thirty males between the ages of 18-24 performed an initial 1RM bench press following standard procedures. They were then randomly assigned to perform the 3RM, 7RM, and 10RM on subsequent days. Following a proper warm-up, the subjects would perform the appropriate reps to complete the test. At the end of the study, researchers found that the 3RM test was able to predict 1RM the best. However, the 7RM test was within 2-3% accuracy of the 1RM.
What does this possibly mean? Some clients cannot or should not perform a 1RM test maybe due to high blood pressure, injury, etc. But now fitness professionals can feel confident that if the client puts forth the appropriate effort, a less strenuous test can be performed with good accuracy.” Watts, R., et al. "Comparison of One Rep Max Bench Press to a Rep to Max Equation of Ten, Seven and Three Reps." American College of Sports Medicine conference, May 2013. Poster presentation.

10 lbs lost via text
Sounds crazy, huh? Well, even if you move away from AlamoShape we can still help you with exercise suggestions and more importantly, nutrition help through our AlamoCafe. Please read below for Amanda Dobler’s results. Amanda is the SuperShape member who recently had a baby. Just a few weeks after her baby was born her husband was diagnosed with brain cancer. Things happened very quickly and they moved back to Baton Rouge to be closer to family but we really felt Amanda needed the support of her AlamoShape family back here, too. She agreed to try the 8-pound challenge from afar and was able to lose 10 pounds with Dena as her coach. It was a really stressful time for her but knowing that she was still part of things back here helped. Mike has since undergone chemotherapy by the way and they are waiting on test results this week. Please consider sending positive thoughts to this wonderful family.
NOVEMBER 8-POUND CHALLENGE CHARLOTTE’S TEAM
MARY B: Total weight lost for the challenge: 7.4lbs; Weight lost for the week 2lbs. Average daily Cardio calories burned 645 ; Average daily Calories eaten 1090; Average daily grams of Protein 79, Average daily grams of Fat 26, Average daily grams of Fiber 37. After completing 2 months of the 8lb. challenge I have lost 19lbs. It has been a good change in lifestyle. I have learned to watch what I eat, eat in moderation and efficiently burn the calories that I eat through proper exercise. I plan on continuing this lifestyle. It is a great program and I challenge everyone to try it. Thank you Charlotte for your encouragement and help.
KENDRA E: Total weight lost for the challenge: 15.8 lbs. Weight lost for the week: 3.6 lbs. Average daily Cardio calories burned: 433 Average daily Calories eaten: 1372, Average daily grams of Protein: 97, Average daily grams of Fat: 41, Average daily grams of Fiber: 27 Reflection: This week was good. Had a day where I had too much fat in my foods. But it was much better than I did during the week of Thanksgiving. Ready for another month of the 8 lb. challenge!
AMANDA: 10 lbs lost, 3 inches in waist, 2.5 inches at navel, 2 inches at hips. Thank you so much for allowing me to do this, this month. Dena is amazing and such a great coach. I know that had I had more access to a gym, I'd have much bigger results, but I feel great in what I was able to do in just 4 weeks. It's given me the confidence to know that I can do this. You're amazing and I really appreciate this opportunity. Thank you so much for everything.
SHARON: Total weight lost for the challenge to date 4.8lbs; Average daily Cardio calories burned 153; Calories eaten 965; Protein 73; Fat 25; Fiber 20. Well, I am sick and have been for over a week, working out was difficult to say the least and did not help me end the challenge with a better result than what I wanted but I am still very happy. My eating habits were most excellent this week, but my workouts are very slim due to the sickness and not going to workouts at all. Besides being on numerous medicines this week my diet was lite because appetite was difficult to keep up when you can't breathe. :-) My overall reflection for the past month is that I didn't lose 8lbs, but I did lose 3.8lbs of fat and 3 3/4 inches; meaning I can fit into my skinny jeans, but my baggies are still more comfortable. I am very happy with my results since being laid up with a bum foot the beginning of the month and sick this last week. As well as losing fat I have gained some muscle. I still have goals to meet, more weight to lose, and more muscles to tone. Thank you to Dena for helping me with my diet; it makes a huge difference on being successful with workouts as well as losing the unwanted weight. I will continue into December with the same frame of mind on eating right and my workouts to get to where I want to be which is at least another 8lbs. See you all at the gym and definitely take advantage of the Alamo Shape Cafe ladies as Dena truly did help me with my goals.
15 Holiday Treats from Food & Wine
(AlamoShape note: Sometimes a little bit of something decadent is much more satisfying, and fewer calories, than a lot of something low-fat.)
Bittersweet-Chocolate Bark with Candied Orange Peels From Food & Wine
In this smart recipe, Grace Parisi boils orange peels in water, simmers them in sugar syrup, and coats them in sugar. Then she tosses them with pistachios and spreads them over chocolate for a divine bark.
Yields: 1 1/2 pounds
Total Time: 2 hr
Ingredients: Peels from 2 navel oranges, washed
3 1/2 cup(s) sugar
1/4 cup(s) light corn syrup
1 pound(s) bittersweet chocolate (preferably 66%), chopped
1/2 cup(s) unsalted roasted pistachios (2 1/2 ounces)
Directions Using a sharp knife, remove the bitter white pith from the orange peels so they are about 1/8-inch thick; cut the peels into 1/4-inch-wide strips. Transfer the peels to a saucepan filled with cold water; bring to a boil and boil the peels for 7 minutes. Drain. Repeat with fresh water, until the orange peels are tender, 15 minutes total. Drain. Rinse out the saucepan. Add 2 1/2 cups of the sugar, the corn syrup and 2 cups of water and bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Add the orange peels and simmer over low heat until slightly translucent, about 30 minutes. Spread the remaining 1 cup of sugar in a pie plate. Using a slotted spoon, lift the candied peels from the syrup, letting the syrup drip back into the saucepan; transfer the peels to the pie plate. Toss the warm peels in the sugar to coat thoroughly. Let the peels cool completely in the sugar, tossing occasionally, about 30 minutes. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. In a double boiler set over a pot of simmering water, heat the bittersweet chocolate until two-thirds melted. Remove from the heat. Stir the chocolate with a rubber spatula until it is completely melted and registers about 90 degrees on an instant-read thermometer. Spread the warm chocolate on the parchment paper to a rough 9-by-13-inch rectangle. Working quickly, so the chocolate doesn't set, pick out the orange peels, reserving the sugar for another use. Scatter the orange peels and pistachios evenly over the melted chocolate; gently tap the cookie sheet on the work surface to flatten the chocolate and allow the toppings to sink in slightly. Refrigerate for about 15 minutes, just until firm. Cut or break the bark into 2-inch pieces and serve.

Smoothie Bars: Deception and Misconceptions
The first time I’d experienced a gym with a smoothie bar, I really did think I was in heaven. You mean I can workout, shower, and get this healthy drink on my way out so I don’t feel hungry or have to rush home to cook a meal? Sign me up! According to Global Industry Analysts, Inc, juice and smoothie bars are estimated to become a $10 billion industry by 2015. The problem is the misconception that smoothies are healthy is leading many people to overindulgence. Some of them are cups with more sugar and calories than milkshakes from a drive-thru restaurant. While all smoothies are not created equal, be sure you know what you’re ordering before you waltz into one of these seemingly healthy eating establishments.
Most smoothies start with the fruit. Fruit is sweet. But is it sweet enough? A quick glance at Smoothie King’s website reveals a not-so-healthy admission: “Many of our nutritional smoothies are sweetened with turbinado and honey. By making it skinny and leaving out the turbinado, you’ll save calories and carbs.” Really – there are 100 empty calories in almost every smoothie and I’m supposed to ask it be taken out to “make it skinny”? Okay, but what about calorie counts? A quick glance of their menu of 20 oz. offerings doesn’t include one smoothie that’s less than 200 calories – not even in the kid-size 12 oz serving. Wait, I lied, there’s one called The Gladiator, but its 180-calorie listing doesn’t factor in the two servings of fruit or juice you add to the drink to make it a smoothie. Getting the amount of a day’s worth of sugar in a 20 oz. cup is one thing, but the fact that they have even larger sizes of 32 oz. and 40 oz. is a bit sour.
Two Servings of What?
Hop on over to Jamba Juice and along with your smoothie, you get the option of a “boost.” Nice touch for those looking for protein or more vitamins and minerals than the fruit in the smoothie itself; which brings me to my next point. Other than fruit, what exactly is in the ingredient list of their “Classic” Smoothies? Sherbet or sorbet, like the kind you find in the ice cream aisle. Yes, juice and sherbet or sorbet is in every one of their “Classic” line of smoothies. So you know, sorbet and sherbet is typically fruit, sugar, and water or milk. Opt for the “All Fruit” Smoothies and the sorbet and sherbet are gone, but you’re still looking at “peach juice blend” or “pineapple juice blend” in the ingredients. While I do not know if these "blends" are fresh-squeezed, it’s safe to say that juice is not 'all fruit.'
Make Your Own
Both Jamba Juice and Smoothie King dub one or more of their smoothies as meal substitutes or replacements. So if you think of a smoothie as a snack, not a meal, make your own. Even at home, the calorie count of a smoothie can add up quickly with multiple servings of fruit, so use a measuring cup to control portion size. Half a banana offers the sweetness of sugar and adds that much desired softness. If you add yogurt, go for plain, not flavored, yogurt. Typically, flavored yogurt has added sugar. Adding extract instead, be it vanilla, almond, chocolate, or even coconut, adds flavor without empty calories. Be sure frozen fruit isn’t sweetened to save calories and keep ice cubes on hand if you’re blending fresh fruit to make it chilled. Adding a serving of protein powder is also an option, just be aware of the usual addition of 100+ calories from one serving. If you must add a liquid, and low-fat milk or water isn't desirable, think of unsweetened almond or hazelnut milk or even coconut water as an option.
Whether from a juice bar or a grocery store, your idea of a nutritious smoothie may only be a mirage. If you’re not making them yourself, or really controlling what the employees are putting in them at your favorite smoothie place, think of them as more of a treat rather than a daily nutritious meal. The fact that most won’t have a variety of whole fruit, vegetables, healthy fat and a lean protein is proof that it shouldn’t be replacing too many of your meals.
There are loads of races from El Paso to Albuquerque between November and September of next year. These are anything from 1 mile family fun run/walks to full marathons. Many of them take team entries and these races can help you achieve your goals be it distance, pace, or just to collect that t-shirt that comes in the registration packet! Of course one of the first big runs you can enter is our annual Zach Trak on January 7, 2012, supporting the disabled children of Zia Therapy. Look for Stella Vita and Daniel Park at this great event!
Worried about losing muscle mass as you shed weight? The solution may be to add more protein to your diet.
Women naturally lose muscle and strength as they age, more so than men. For older women who are on a diet, consuming more protein may help preserve muscle mass and foster a better muscle-to-fat body composition.
In a recent study, 31 postmenopausal women were divided into two groups, with each group on a 1,400-calorie diet. One group consumed a powdered whey protein supplement twice a day, while the other group received a placebo containing carbohydrates. Everyone in the study was encouraged to do light exercise, such as walking and stretching. (Related: Use our handy tracker to get started on your own walking plan.)
Researchers assessed the women’s strength, balance, and ability to do physical tasks, such as getting up from a chair and lifting a book above shoulder height, before and after the study. Magnetic resonance imaging was used to gauge the muscle volume of each woman’s right thigh and to measure the amount of fat around the thigh and within the thigh muscle.
After 6 months, both groups had lost weight -- and strength. But the women consuming additional protein lost 3.9 percent more weight than the placebo group and gained 5.8 percent more thigh muscle. This led to better balance and improved task performance. (Related: Find out why it’s smart to have a little protein with every meal or snack.) How much protein should you eat?

When you don’t have a lot of time and need to grab something quick on the go, a handful of nuts is a great option. Depending on the type of nut, you can actually have a good-sized snack, with appetite-curbing protein to boot! Like what? Try 14 almonds, 17 peanuts, or 25 pistachios. But skip macadamia nuts, each of which packs nearly 20 calories.
Peanut Butter and Celery Sticks
An oldie but goodie, this super delicious treat is actually pretty darn healthy too! A cup of celery only has 19 calories and two teaspoons of peanut butter has 64—plus it includes protein, which keeps you filling full longer. And don’t bother reaching for the low-fat stuff; it only has two less calories that regular peanut butter.
Carrots and Hummus
What do you get when you dip a cup’s worth of baby carrots (50 calories) into a couple tablespoons of hummus (50 calories)? A quick, satisfying, and absolutely wholesome treat. Since hummus is low in sugar and cholesterol-free, it’s a wonderful alternative to cheese or dip.
Whether you make your own or grab a ready-made fruit salad from the local grocer, you can’t go wrong with a snack straight from nature. To make your own fruit salad and stay under the 100 calorie mark, slice half a medium banana into round disks, cut half an apple into little wedges, grab five to six grapes, put them in a sealable container, and sprinkle with a little cinnamon.
Every time you hear yourself making some blanket statement like, "I'm very insecure“I need a lot of attention and reassurance," I'd suggest that you add these three words, "up until now." Every time you do that, you're making a break with the past. You're giving yourself permission to change. ~Anita Goldstein
What a great way to take charge of any aspect of your life....“up until now” can be the first words of the rest of your life. Stay positive about your nutrition and exercise efforts. One slip up doesn’t make for failure. It is just a chance to start again more intelligently. Try the tip below to drop 5 pounds in 8 weeks.

Drop 5 Pounds in 8 Weeks by Sipping This From RealAge.com
Lose 5 pounds without even breaking a sweat? Research suggests that it may be possible -- if you drink green tea. In a small study of obese people who had metabolic syndrome, the participants lost over 5 pounds in just 8 weeks when they began drinking green tea daily. And they didn't even have to change their diets or exercise habits.
Easy on the Body
All it took was 4 cups of tea daily -- 2 in the morning and 2 later in the day -- to produce the modest weight loss benefit. And the tea drinkers not only dropped a few pounds, but also their bodies showed less evidence of oxidative stress. That's good news for people with weight issues, whose bodies tend to experience elevated levels of oxidative stress -- a fancy way of describing when the body is struggling to deal with more body-damaging free radicals than it can effectively manage. (Here's another way you can drink a hot beverage and minimize oxidative stress.)It's the Catechins
So what's the key to green tea's weight loss magic? It may be the catechins in the brew that elevate fat-fighting in the body -- particularly a catechin called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), which is the most abundant in green tea. Makes green tea seem like a real body bargain when you consider that you can pick up a box of teabags at the grocery store and enjoy this brew for just pennies a serving. Here are a few more cheap and easy ways to do your body right:
- Eat more beans. Bean eaters tend to weigh almost 7 pounds less than people who skip legumes.
- Drink more water. Adding just 4 more cups of water to your day could boost weight loss.
- Choose the funny flick. A happy movie will cause you to snack less than if you watched the latest thriller instead.
- Skip the commercials. Commercials make people want to eat junk food -- because most commercials are about junk food.
SLOW METABOLISM, WHAT TO DO?
Here’s a link to an article by Jillian Michaels that talks about the reasons for slow metabolism. I’m not sure they are all legit with regard to metabolism, but they are all factual with regard to your better health in general. The very first one---get off your sofa!---is probably the most important of all, and secondly, the huge amount of processed foods we eat (your body doesn’t have to work hard to break down and store as fat a food that chemicals and food industry machines have already partially digested for you!) http://www.jillianmichaels.com/fitness-and-diet-tips/lagging-metabolism If the link doesn’t work just type in the address or copy and paste it into your browser bar.
