Signs of a Stroke

This  next post is a little different from my usual ones however, I think it is imperative to share.

I am sure we all  know someone that has had a stroke and depending on the severity of it is either going through therapy/rehab or has had therapy/rehab in the past.  Below  are a few signs to note if some one is having a stroke and if so seek medical attention  immediately. This is what I remember from my CPR and First Aid course.

  1. Ask the person to smile. Is one side of their face drooping?
  2.  Ask the person to raise their arms. Does one arm start to lower?
  3. Ask the person to repeat a very simple phrase. Is their speech slurred?
  4. Is there numbness or weakness  on one side of the body.
  5. Is he or she confused or having a difficult time understanding?
  6. Is he or she having a sudden painful headache?
  7. Is it difficult to walk?
  8. Is the person feeling dizzy, or is there a loss of balance?

Burning a 100 Calories with Chobani

We have all heard sitting is the new smoking so we are concerned with burning calories through out the day. Adding small spurts of movement in the day adds up to burning off 100 calories or more daily.   Chobani  has a new line of yogurts called Chobani Simply 100 Crunch.   Chobani is encouraging us to live life lighter whether by walking an extra mile daily or eating 100 calories less.

A few ways I like to incorporate exercise into to my daily routine is to play my fav music and dance I do this while cleaning my house as well, yes cleaning is great calorie burner too. I also take a 10-15 minute break and go for a brisk walk.

On days I need a quick snack that won’t derail my healthy plan I grab yogurt. Chobani Simply 100 is the perfect size to grab and go and best of all there is a “crunch” and who doesn’t love a good crunch.

Here are a few ways to burn 100 calories feel free to print and keep.
