Page 25: PSA Shoot With Sabrina Bryan!

Most of you guys know who Sabrina Bryan is~ a Cheetah Girl! Isaiah and I were very lucky to be able to do a PSA (Public Service Announcement!!) with her! Sabrina is really awesome and so down to earth. She just shot her last movie “One World” in India. She said it was a lot of fun there. The commercial should come on sometime soon!

Isaiah and I got to go to a middle school in downtown L.A. where Sabrina taught us, along with the middle school students, dance moves! (This was… um interesting for me because I am somewhat clumsy and definitely NOT a dancer!) Then we went to a studio to film the PSA with Sabrina. 

It was so cool being able to see how they filmed commercials! It is WAY different then I thought it was going to be. Overall the day was an eye-opener!

I am very appreciative to my Godparents, Barbara and Pete, for taking me all the way to LA! Thank you guys!

Page 23: Helping Your Community

Health is not only on the outside, but on the inside. I believe that in order to shine, truly shine, you have to help the less fortunate and do good things. That’s why I think that this year everyone should do community service. It’s really easy to help your community. Helping could be doing a neighbors yard, or doing the dishes for your parents. You don’t need to be a superstar and raise millions of dollars, but just do the little things that no one likes. If you’d like to share your stories you can leave a comment on my blog. Also if you have any questions or comments, I will answer them in my next blog posting. So feel free to send some in!

Page 22: Diet Soda vs Soda Soda

Which one are you supposed to drink? NEITHER! But when you feel like you NEED a soda don’t head for the diet soda. Studies show that while both sodas make you fat, diet soda makes you fatter faster. For each can of a diet soda you drink per day, your risk of becoming obese increases by a HUGE 41%

So when you are faced with the choice of what kind of soda to drink, go for a regular soda. The same studies show that drinking regular soda also contributes significantly to being overweight or obese. But there is another part to the story – the ingredients in diet soda could be very harmful to your body. My best advice to you is… DON’T DRINK THAT MUCH SODA AT ALL!  That is the best way to avoid this problem!

Page 21: My New Year’s Resolution List!

Hope you ALL had a wonderful Holiday! The fun and candies aren’t over yet! We still have to tackle New Years! Here’s my New Year’s Resolution List! Please send in yours! I’ll post it if it’s reasonable!

1. Try to eat more veggies each day.

2. Get more calcium!

3. Spend more time out shooting hoops and less time on the computer! (Oops! Looks like I’m blowing that one…)

4. Spend more time with my dogs!

5. Do good in school (parents love that one!)

New Year’s Resolutions are a great way to set and achieve goals! Everyone should make a list even if it’s very short (like mine!!)

I hope that the New Year is going to be amazing and fun!

Page 20: My Top 10 Tips to Surviving the Holidays!!

The Holidays are my favorite time of the year, but getting through them can be pretty tough! I am such a big foodie! I could eat all day long, so when the Holidays offer that… it can get really tough! But I’ve come up with some tips to help you and me survive!

1.Get plenty of ZZZZZZ! That way you can wake up and be ready to tackle the day ahead of you. Although I think New Years is an exception! 🙂 

2. Get lots of veggies. I am not a big fan of vegetables, but I do eat them. If you feel like you aren’t getting enough vitamins from veggies then ask a Doctor about special vitamins!

3. Cut back on the Ginger Bread Men, and Candy Canes, and basically any other treat! Try decorating your tree with ornaments and not candy, that way you aren’t tempted!

4. Try to get out and exercise! If it’s snowing, walk around your house 30 times (depending on how big it is!) If the weather’s sunny like it is here in most of California then continue with your normal exercise!

5. Drink plenty of water. A lot of times during the Holidays people get so caught up in things that they forget to hydrate. Remember, you need 8 cups of water each day, that’s 64 ounces!

6. Wind down at the end of each day. Take time away from everyone else to let yourself relax.

7. Get outside and play with your pets. Don’t forget about them in all the hustle and bustle!!

8. Instead of giving people 15 cookies in their goody bag, give them 10. Try to scale down on everything except for veggies!

9. Have a good attitude and have fun. That is the best way to stay healthy in my opinion! 

10. Donate food to the food bank. They hardly ever get fresh veggies and fruits!

I hope that these tips will help you as much as they’ve been helping me! Please if you have any other tips you would like to share with me send a comment! If they are good I might just put them up!

P.S. Sorry it’s taken a while for me to blog! It’s been a little hectic!

Page 17: My Classroom Visit!

This Thursday I got to do a presentation about obesity for my 7th grade Language Arts and Social Studies Class. I had so much fun being able to talk to my peers about what I do in my community and with the Alliance, and how I feel about it! I came up with the idea of giving a presentation after my friends Marin and Kienna and Desiree made a presentation on Proposition 2. I felt that it was a way for me to be able to get my idea off in a fun way!

In my presentation I explained about what I do for the Alliance, and why it is important. Specifically, I talked about obesity statistics and ways you can prevent obesity. I thought that giving statistics about obesity would be the best way for all of my peers to understand the extent of the problem.

I got to do 2 activities with my classmates. First, we all got into groups of 4, and I chose 1 person from each group who pretended to be obese. Then we counted how many “obese” kids there were in our class. Finally, I gave each table a question about obesity, and whoever answered it correctly got a jump rope!

For those of you teachers that are reading this, it’s a really easy activity, and it can be done in 10 minutes. PLEASE take the time to do this, your students will benefit!

P.S. Thanks Marin, Kienna, and Dessire! 🙂

Page 15: Sickness!

School can be so overwhelming at times. Kids get sick every other week because they are pickin’ their nose, or biting their nails. But a good way to have a healthy immune system is to have a healthy diet. When you eat more fruits and veggies, they give you more vitamins that help you stay happy and healthy! 🙂 If you feel like you’re not getting enough vitamins from fruits and veggies go and talk to your doctor about special vitamins ( that was just like a commercial, but it’s a good idea to get some good vitamins) 🙂 If you try eating more fruits and veggies I am sure that you won’t get sick as often!

P.S. It would help if you DIDN’T pick your nose or bite your nails! 🙂
