    Exercise: Is there any such thing as too much?

    Getting into a regular exercise routine can be very difficult for various reasons. One workout can definitely make you feel better but working out too much will make you feel worse! You may be thinking how can more exercise be a bad thing? Well there really is such a thing as too much. When certain signs and symptoms creep up as a results of too much exercise it is referred to as Overtraining Syndrome (OTS). Whether someone is exercising too much without adequate recovery time or whether someone is not eating appropriately for the volume of exercise they are getting some adverse symptoms can occur. Let's take a look at a few things to be aware of if you have recently increased the amount ....

    Why we should stop making food an after thought in our healthy living plan.........

    More fodder on food in the spirit of National Nutrition Month..... Not a week goes by, nope, not a DAY goes by that I do not hear I do not have time to eat, much less right...... There are two reasons I cringe when I hear that AND when I think it for myself. One is that I have always believed that there is always enough time in the day to do what we need/should/want to do. I am always checking myself on that and certainly in more recent years I have had to work a lot harder in prioritizing the things that I want to have time for, one being balanced food consumption, meaning nutritious and eating mindfully and not just for the sake of filling a need in my body. The second is that it ....

    Leave the Phone Behind: Gym Etiquette.....

    I was taking a spinning class at an area gym this past weekend. All of a sudden I saw a flash of light go off in mid-pedal and wondered what it was thinking strangely that someone was taking a photo. It turned out to be inches away from me. The rider next to me had her cell phone on her handle bars and had got a text message. Now, let me be frank......CELL PHONES ARE UNNECCESSARY WHEN WORKING OUT especially in a group fitness setting lead by an instructor with music. And if for some extreme reason you need to have your cell phone in front of your face working out (i.e. on call Dr.) you sure as hell should have a discrete notification setting not one that could disrupt another participant ....

    Do as I say Not as I do......

    Sometimes it takes wise counsel to point out that you need to practice something that is usually so obvious to you, something you constantly preach to others, and believe that you do fairly well until you are told otherwise. This is precisely what occurred to me right at the start of this month and year. The advice was that I needed to do something for myself. Hmmm I thought, what had I been doing or actually not doing for myself. The answer was that the things I were "doing for myself" were in fact not "for me" at all. My "free time" outside of my business, away from clients was spent still working, working on my business without interruption, taking care of our house, getting ready for ....

    80% of New Year’s Resolutions Fail – How to ensure yours doesn’t

    There is nothing more symbolic of fresh starts than January 1 st , which could be why Inc. Magazine reports 60% of Americans make a New Year’s resolution. What are we resolving to do (for real this time)? Not surprisingly, the majority want to diet or eat healthier (71%), exercise more (65%), and lose weight (54%) [1] . But, as we know, New Year’s resolutions are easy to make (especially over a chocolate Santa and a glass of wine) and hard to implement. In fact, if you’ve already broken this year’s resolution you’re in good company; 80% of New Year’s resolutions are abandon by Valentine’s Day [2] . So, how do you become one of ....

    Mobilizing February for Fitness Greatness.....5 Tips for Sticking To It!

    Did you set some goals in January for the new year? Did you get to the end of the month feeling like a failure? Your are not alone......me too! The bottom line is that January is a terrible time to expect big things from yourself. We were cleaning up from the holidays, the weather was dreadful, we had a lot of year end stuff to wrap up, and it is the middle of winter with minimal day light and we just want to hide in the comfort of a blanket in front of a "heat source." Success in January is just surviving the start of a new year. February is really where we can charge forward more proactively. So now that you can breathe easier if you feel like your whole year is lost because January was ....
